The battle for 4th moves to Goodison Park as Everton look to put serious pressure on the Gunners




Howard, Baines, Distin, Coleman, Stones, Mirallas, McCarthy, Barry, Osman, Naismith, Lukaku


Subs: Robles, Hibbert, McGeady, Deulofeu, Barkley, Garbutt, Alcaraz


Szczesny, Monreal, Vermaelen (c), Mertesacker, Sagna, Flamini, Arteta, Rosicky, Podolski, Cazorla, Giroud

Subs: Viviano, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Sanogo, Jenkinson, Kallstrom, Bellerin



Lukas Podolski has the best- chance conversion of any player with 10+ goals in the Premier League over the last two seasons, scoring with 33% of his attempts.

Just under a month ago, Arsenal were one point off top spot in the Premier League. Going into Sunday’s match against Everton however, they find themselves seven point off the summit and in a real battle to stay in the top four. Everton are four points behind the Gunners but have a game in hand. The significance of this contest therefore cannot be understated. The Toffees haven’t beaten Arsene Wenger’s side in 14 matches (March 2007) and lost 4-1 at the Emirates in March but they, unlike their opponents, have been in fine form of late and are unbeaten since that defeat. In fact, Roberto Martinez’s side have picked up 15 points in their last five league games compared to just five points for Arsenal. The Blues cannot afford to lose on Sunday, and a point doesn’t help either side so this could be a free flowing game between two sides that play attractive football.

  • Everton have only scored more than once in one of the last 22 Barclays Premier League games against Arsenal.
  • Lukas Podolski has the best chance conversion of any player with 10+ goals in the Premier League over the last two seasons, scoring with 33% of his attempts.
  • No team has ever had 60 or more points after 31 games of a Premier League season and failed to finish in the top four. Everton and Arsenal have both exceeded this tally.
