Overview

Everton welcome Arsenal to Goodison Park for a Premier League clash with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in the league. Roberto Martinez's team will be in a confident mood after dumping out Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-finals and the Spanish manager will hope his team can continue the momentum and add to the Gunners' misery. Everton have also had a dismal run in the Premier League this season and are currently in 12th place. Gareth Barry will be a big miss for the Toffees after he was sent off during the FA Cup clash.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have failed to win their last three league encounters and have seen their title challenge fizzle away. They are currently 11 points behind leaders Leicester City albeit with a game in hand but unless the Foxes drop points, they do not have a chance to win the title. Arsene Wenger has come under pressure following their dismal form, which has seen them drop out of the FA Cup and Champions League within a week and failing to win in the league.

The Gunners' end-of-season injury curse is back to haunt them, with Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and most recently Mathieu Flamini joining Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla and Tomas Rosicky in the treatment room. The French coach, however, will be keen to go into the international break with a win.

What managers say

Arsene Wenger (Arsenal): "What we want is to come back to winning habits, and after see what happens behind us. Let's first just do the job and then maybe we will have the luck to have positive results on our side from other teams."

Roberto Martinez [on Arsene Wenger]: I know what Arsene Wenger has done as a manager - bringing a very clear way of working, a completely different, new approach into football. The management that he brought into the British game has changed British football.

"What he has achieved at Arsenal is a model that many, many football people have been inspired by. The short-term situation of one or two results sometimes overshadows the incredible work over the years.
