Skipper Robin van Persie admitted a "gamble" put the icing on the cake of Arsenal's 125th anniversary celebrations on Saturday.

Van Persie struck a stunning 70th-minute left-foot volley to clinch a 1-0 victory over Everton at the Emirates Stadium as a host of legends looked on from the stands. It was Van Persie's 19th goal of a remarkable season and moved the Gunners into the top four of the Barclays Premier League on the back of seven wins in their last eight matches.

Although the Dutchman was delighted with the latest success, given his run of form of late he was far from happy with his own display. He said on Arsenal Player: "It was vital to stay on track and get the three points. It was a hard game against a good Everton side. In the end, very pleased."
