Nice touch tracking down Danskins' great grandchildren to bring the ball out. Funny seeing ches bow down before RVP and kiss his left boot at FT

Those are the special moments that you're so glad to have witnessed live. The goal was a thing of beauty and perfection.

Impresssive goal. I really hope van Persie breaks both Henry's and Shearer's goal scoring records; about 4 more games to do so.

A tough game and a hard earned 3 points. We obviously lack creativity from our full backs but I thought both Walcott and Gervinho did well to compensate.

I might be whinging but I thought Coleman had a unusually dirty game and was lucky to stay on the pitch. And was Cahill targeting Ramsey for some ruffing up? I won't talk about Fellaini because I have thought since his first season that his elbows are always out and I really don't think he should be playing football.

Sczcesny kissing RvP's left boot after the game was a classic :). The Pole is endearing himself more and more to fans, with very passing game. The performance overall was good, in terms of creativity and creating scoring opportunities, but it needed a moment of individual brilliance to score, and only RvP (in this current Arsenal team) is capable of providing that. Everton hardly possessed a threat, with only 1 shot on goal. Taking off Saha to bring on Distin only made that worse.

It's got to be said it was a tremendous goal from Van Persie. When you first said you thought he was the best striker in the world I was sceptical, now there's no doubt. It may not get the same attention but Song's ball to RVP was Xavi/Sneijder-esque. It was intelligent, showed greast vision and played to perfection.

Vermaelen injury was the only really bad moment in this game. Hope it ain't serious. He's our only fit left back at the moment
