LONDON (AFP) - Arsenal wasted a chance to cement their place in the Premier League's top four as the Gunners were held to a 0-0 draw by Everton on Tuesday.

Arsene Wenger's side would have moved four points clear of fifth placed Tottenham with a win at the Emirates Stadium.

But they were forced to settle for a point as obdurate Everton's physical approach succeeded in frustrating the hosts.

Third placed Arsenal are now two points clear of Chelsea and Tottenham in the race to qualify for the Champions League.
