We’ve a pair of Premier League matches at halftime on Tuesday, just an appetizer for an octet of Wednesday’s games.

It’s been pretty one-sided at Goodison Park, even the visitors needed a bit of luck to open the scoring. Alexis Sanchez’s free kick went through Ashley Williams‘ legs — why were his leg spread so wide?!? — catching one to redirect past Maarten Stekelenberg and give the Gunners are a deserved 1-0 lead.

But Seamus Coleman nodded a Leighton Baines cross behind Petr Cech to level it up just before the break. Baines sent a terrific right-footed (!!!) cross in between Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal, and Coleman rose to score it.

The fierce play carried over into the tunnel, as several players had to be divided at the break.

The Cherries continue to hum, and Marc Pugh was in the catbird seat when Benik Afobe‘s fine chance was parried by Ron-Robert Zeiler.
