Everton come into this game after registering a comfortable 1-3 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage. David Stockdale's own goal helped the Toffees take a lead in the second half. However, the home side equalised from Ashkan Dejagah's 71st minute goal.

Kevin Mirallas restored Everton's lead before Steven Naismith scored the third goal for Roberto Martinez's side. The Merseyside club have won their last four out of the five games played in all competition. Their last defeat was against the Gunners in the FA Cup.

Meanwhile, Arsenal enter this fixture after avoiding defeat in their last fixture against title contenders Manchester City. The game at the Emirates ended in a 1-1 draw. David Silva opened the scoring for the Citizens in the first half.

Mathieu Flamini equalised for the Gunners just minutes after the start of the second half to seal a point for his side. Arsenal have managed only one win in their last five games played in all competitions. Wenger would be looking for three points at Goodison Park.

The north London side are fourth in the table with 64 points from 32 games. Everton are four points behind Arsenal in fifth place and have a game in hand. A victory for the Toffees at home could see them give them the edge to finish the season in top four, above the Gunners.

What They Say

Roberto Martinez: "It (the result) could have a huge bearing (on who finishes fourth). We are fighting with a direct rival that we admire and respect, and are in this position every season - they find a way to perform in these big games."

Arsene Wenger: "It's an opportunity to go forward and as well an opportunity to make a distance with Everton. Everton are a good side, that's why they are where they are. For us it's very difficult to imagine the impact it will have on finishing fourth, but it's a game we want to win."
