Arsenal.com's Nick Teale uses the Bettorlogic form lab to analyse the statistics ahead of Saturday's clash with Everton.
Since breaking into the top four in 2005, Everton have been consistent contenders for a Champions League place.
However they have struggled this season and despite rising five League places in their last five games, the Toffees have only won two of their last 13 Premier League matches.
Arsenal have an impressive record at home to mid-table sides, having lost just two such fixtures since the start of the 2004/05 season.
The Gunners have averaged 2.53 points per game from such matches since summer 2004 and concede just 0.58 goals per game. Our table below highlights Arsenal's performance at home to mid-table teams and Everton's success at Big Four clubs since August 2004.
Tomas Rosicky has started nine games at home to mid-table sides and Arsenal have won every one of those fixtures. Furthermore the Gunners have not conceded a goal in the seven such matches Samir Nasri has started.
One statistic Everton fans will not enjoy hearing is that their team is yet to win at the home of a Big Four club under David Moyes. The Scotsman took over at Goodison Park in March 2002.
Goalkeeper Tim Howard offers one glimmer of hope for the Toffees. With him in the side they concede 24 per cent fewer goals when he doesn't wear the gloves. However they still ship an average of 1.38 goals per game.
