Everton v Arsenal: The Brief

With every week that passes, the tension ramps up across the Premier League - and that's especially true in the race for a top-four place.

Four into two doesn't go, and it will be those sides capable of holding their nerve who will prevail. Having won our last 10 in a row at Emirates Stadium, home form is unlikely to be a problem: it is on the road that our campaign will be won or lost.

Sunday's trip to Everton marks the first of five away games in our last seven fixtures, but there is reason for optimism, both from the form we have shown of late and the stats involving the two sides.

The poise we showed on Monday against Newcastle spoke of a team determined to continue their charge, while we can also be buoyed by our recent record against the Toffees: we've won seven of our last eight games against them, including our last four in a row.

Continuing that run this weekend would be the perfect way to kick off a run-in that will test the mettle of every side in contention.

Read on for our comprehensive preview, including Emery's thoughts on the game, the latest team news, stats, and analysis of the opposition.
