Everton v Arsenal

Premier League Match 32

Everton's last 5 domestic results:

Arsenal 4-1 Everton - FA Cup (Lukaku)
Everton 2-1 Cardiff (Deulofeu, Coleman)
Everton 3-2 Swansea (Baines Pen, Lukaku, Barkley)
Newcastle 0-3 Everton (Barkley, Lukaku, Osman)

Arsenal's last 5 domestic results:

Arsenal 4-1 Everton - FA Cup (Ozil, Arteta Pen, Giroud x2)
Tottenham 0-1 Arsenal (Rosicky)
Chelsea 6-0 Arsenal
Arsenal 2-2 Swansea (Podolski, Giroud)
Arsenal 1-1 Manchester City (Flamini)

Everton made it five wins in a row in the league with a 3-1 win at Fulham which is their best run since November 2002 when Everton won six in a row, a run that started off with a 2-1 win over Arsenal in the match which well and truly put Wayne Rooney on the radar. Going into this home tie, Everton have won six league matches in a row at Goodison Park and eight including FA Cup ties. Everton haven't won seven league matches in a row at home since March 2010. Everton have scored three goals in each of their last three matches.

Surprisingly, Everton have only played three matches at home against the rest of the top 7 going into this tie, and Liverpool are the only other team yet to face all six at home. Everton are unbeaten in the three matches with draws against Tottenham and Liverpool along with a 1-0 win against Chelsea. Incredibly, Everton have already managed more points at home to these sides than Manchester United and are equal with Tottenham. both of whom have played all six at home.

Possible Line-ups

Arsenal picked up a vital point against Manchester City at the weekend which means even if they lose this match, they'll remain 4th albeit having played a match more than Everton. However the draw at home to Swansea before Manchester City means Arsenal have picked up two points from their last three matches. Arsenal have won three of their last ten league games despite a run of six wins in a row before that. Arsenal have taken seven points from their six away games in 2014.

This is Arsenal's final away game of the season to a team in the top 7. They haven't faired too well in previous matches and have the second worst goal difference, mainly down to losing 6-0 at Chelsea. They're only win came against local rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Arsenal conceded six against Chelsea and Manchester City, five against Liverpool and once against Manchester United in their defeats.

Stats and Injuries

Everton: Long Term injuries Arouna Kone, Darron Gibson and Bryan Oviedo along with loanee Lacina Traore will all miss out this game whilst Phil Jagielka could return, though Steven Pienaar isn't expected to return for another week and Ross Barkley picked up a knock in the last match.

Arsenal: Arsenal have a couple of long term injuries still missing through Abou Diaby and Theo Walcott whilst Ryo Miyaichi and Mesut Ozil will both miss out with hamstring injures. Aaron Ramsey will still be a week from fitness, though Nacho Monreal could return. Jack Wilshere and Laurent Koscielny are both unlikely to feature.

Wow our record vs arsenal is awful

Seems like Arsenal could be on their arse  :whistle:  injury wise

The Good Citizen:
That Arsenal team is there for the taking. no Walcott, Ozil, Ramsey, Wilshere with Monreal a doubt, great time to be playing them. For me its just a question of that front three of McGeady, Naismith and Mirallas developing an understanding. Its a bit untried but individually McGeady and Naismith have both shown they deserve the start and I would go with that line up.

"Remember the name: John Stones."
