Arsenal vs Everton Preview: Arsenal has been in wonderful form of late winning three back to premier league games plus that all important champions league win over Bayern Munich which will go along way to get their european season on track. Their next assignment is an away fixture against Everton in a game where they are expected to struggle, but a win here will put them top of the table for the first time this season and they might stay top if United beat City. So there is alot of play for Arsenal while Everton will be looking for first win in three matches to keep their hopes of qualifying for europe next season.
Arsenal has some major injury crisis probably at the worst time possible with them in great form at the moment. Aaron Ramsey will join the likes of Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck and Thomas Rosicky on the sidelines while Mikael Arteta is stuggling to get fit. Wenger is also looking to rest key player Alexis Sanchez as he is playing non stop for last 3 weeks with Arsenal and Chile together. Olivier Giroud might also start ahead of Theo Walcott who has been in decent form but Wenger might want to use Girouds arial presense against a very physical Everton side.
Toffees on the other has some great news with Tom Cleverly, Steven Pienaar and Oviedo all likely to be in the squad while Leighton Baines is almost full fit to feature for Everton in coming weeks but not against Arsenal. This is how I expect both teams to lineup ahead of Saturdays kickoff.
