Arsenal’s busy schedule continues as the Gunners host Everton at Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal come into this game in terrific form as they are now unbeaten in their previous nine games.

Mikel Arteta, whose arrival has brought with it a freshness, has even managed to start converting draws into wins as his side go into this fixture with back-to-back victories.

Everton surprised the footballing world with their appointment of Carlo Ancelotti they’ve done well in the nine games he’s managed so far as the Blues have only lost only twice; to Liverpool and Manchester City.
