Overview

Arsenal host Everton on Saturday in a clash that can see the Gunners move to the top of the Premier League table with a win. The north London club have lost just one game in their last eight clashes and will hope to keep the run going.

Arsene Wenger has an injury problem, with Aaron Ramsey the latest casualty. The Welshman is set to be on the sidelines for a month with a hamstring injury, and he joins long-term absentees Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Danny Welbeck on the treatment table.

Meanwhile, Everton come to the Emirates Stadium looking for their first win in Gunners territory, a feat they have not achieved in a decade. The last win came at Highbury during the 1995/96 campaign.

Roberto Martinez will hope to break the jinx with his team, who are in ninth place and have won just two of their last six games. The Spaniard is also without first choice defender Leighton Baines, but will have the services of Tom Cleverley and Kevin Mirallas, who have returned from injury and a three-game suspension respectively.

What Managers Say

Arsene Wenger: "We have built up a run and that brings confidence, but you also want a good compromise between confidence, urgency and hunger. It must give us hunger to do more."

Roberto Martinez [on not winning at the Emirates]: "I don't know. I've been thinking the same and it's difficult to give a straight answer. Obviously, two years ago we were very good there and deserved to win the game but ended up drawing 1-1 and you're thinking about something a bit further than just the game itself in terms of the psychological edge you might need to go to places like Old Trafford and the Emirates and believe that you can win."
