Arteta - We know how tough it'll be at Goodison

Mikel Arteta

Returning to Goodison Park will always be an emotional experience for Mikel Arteta - but he is fully focused on the three points.

Monday night's host are struggling for form and are without a win in eight games, but our manager believes we will face a formidable challenge.

"[They are] a team that wants to put things right and win, and on Monday night at Goodison I know what I am going to expect under the lights with the fans they have so it will be a tough game," he said.

"There are a lot of teams that are going through that [poor form] because this is a league  has become that competitive that the moment you lose a game or two, the pressure is coming for everybody. 

"It is no different there, obviously it's a very special place to go back there because I had some amazing years there, so I'm looking forward to it."
