Arsenal v Everton
Emirates Stadium
Saturday 8th March 12:45
FA Cup Quarter Final

Arsenal's last 5 domestic results:

Liverpool 5-1 Arsenal (Arteta Pen)
Arsenal 0-0 Manchester United
Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool - FA Cup (Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski)
Arsenal 4-1 Sunderland (Giroud x2, Rosicky, Koscielny)
Stoke 1-0 Arsenal

Everton's last 5 domestic results:

Everton 2-1 Aston Villa (Naismith, Mirallas)
Tottenham 1-0 Everton
Everton 3-1 Swansea - FA Cup (Traore, Naismith, Baines Pen)
Chelsea 1-0 Everton
Everton 1-0 West Ham (Lukaku)


Everton go into this game after a 1-0 home win over West Ham as Romelu Lukaku sealed his return from injury with a substitute winning goal in the 81st minute. Everton put to bed a dismal run of 5 matches without a clean sheet and extended their home form to 4 wins in a row since losing to Sunderland on Boxing Day. Everton will be looking for a change of fortunes in away form with the FA Cup on Saturday as they've lost their last 3 in a row and have failed to win in 5 in the Premier League.

Everton have made the final 8 of the FA Cup 24 times since the end of World War II in 1945. Out of those 24 times, Everton won 15 of the ties and went on to reach the final of the Cup on 8 occasions. 3 of Everton's 5 FA Cup wins have come in those matches. Everton have reached this stage of the competition 7 times since the Premier League began but have only surpassed this stage 3 times.

Possible Line Ups


Similar to their opponents, Arsenal come into this match on the back of a 1-0 home win, unfortunately for Arsenal, they were the away side. Arsene Wenger's side lost 1-0 to Stoke after conceding a dubious penalty in the 76th minute in a result which has dented their title ambitions. This is Arsenal's 2nd away defeat in a row following that 5-1 loss at Anfield. Arsenal also lost last time they were at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League but they'll be hoping to carry their home form from the Premier League into the FA Cup as they've only lost 1 match there all season which came on the opening day to Aston Villa.

Arsenal have reached this stage of the competition a couple more times than their next opponents with 26 Quarter Final appearances to their name in the FA Cup since 1945. Arsenal have won 19 of their 26 ties in the last 8 and have won 8 of their  10 FA Cup titles in this era. Since the Premier League began in 1992, Arsenal have won 9 out of 10 Quarter finals. 17 of these 26 fixtures have brought about a home tie for arsenal in which they have won 11.

Stats & Injuries

Arsenal will be without long term injuries Abou Diaby and Theo Walcott for this match whilst Kim Kallstrom is still nursing an injury since joining on loan. Aaron Ramsey is still a couple of weeks from fitness, though Nacho Monreal is set to return.

Everton will certainly be without Darron Gibson, Arouna Kone and Bryan Oviedo who are all long term injuries. Phil Jageilka is set to miss the match along with Lacina Traore whilst Antolin Alcaraz is finding fitness.

A draw to get a Goodison replay wouldn't be the worst outcome, but I could definitely see us poaching a late goal on the counter after a tight affair.

I'd be happy with a replay.  Arsenal are in stuttering form though, if we can keep it level after an hour I think we might be able to sneak it.  I'd start Lukaku and Mirallas, and have Deulofeu and Naismith in there to win it for us late on.  Would really be a massive boost to the club if we could get to Wembley again
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Big game this - not just for the cup but physiologically for fourth. Arsenal are showing a weakness and have some tough games. I said a few weeks ago it might be them rather than the RS we were chasing for fourth. Exciting few months left. COYB

A replay back at Goodison under the lights would be a great result for us.
Tight game at Arsenal , but hopefully Jags will be back.

Just to let everyone on here know what a fantastic guy Eddie is , he went right out of his way to get an Arsenal ticket for me . He not only qued up online , he then went down to the ground , all in his own time.
Youre a top Blue mate , and if I can ever repay your time and effort , you only have to ask.

Their crowd will be very demanding/anxious for this game.

We have to use that to our advantage.

They'll be expecting a win so any signs of that not happening will spread the moans/abuse that you get when expected things aren't happening, very quickly

We haven't beaten Arsenal since 2007.

I'm not sure we're at the top of Wenger's bogey team list.

It'll be interesting to see to what extent Arsenal are still going for the Champs League vs going for the FA Cup. If I was Wenger I'd focus on trying to win this game, rather than trying to overturn the Bayern deficit, which is highly unlikely.

Really fancy us to win this game outright at the Emirates.

Kathie: Is there a way to win?
