Everton v Arsenal Preview [Football]

Everton's only injury concern tonight is Spaniard Mikel Arteta who is doubtful for the game because of his rib injury. Louis Saha is battling back to full fitness but is not ready for a full comeback just yet! Fellaini also returns for the blues after serving his two match ban.

Arsenal have William Gallas fit and available for selection and they also welcome back Gael Clichy after serving his one match suspension. Silvestre is out of tonight's game with a thigh problem.

At home Everton should be capable of pulling off a result tonight. Even without a proper strike-force they have proven that they still carry a threat, especially from set-pieces. They will miss Arteta tonight though but their biggest boost could come from the fact Fellaini is back in the side.

Arsenal still have the belief that they can win the Premier League and with Van Persie on the field they are always capable of getting goals. If Everton defend well tonight it might mean Arsenal may have to be a bit more clinical with their chances.


Everton (from): Howard, Hibbert, Jagielka, Lescott, Baines, Anichebe, Gosling, Castillo, Rodwell, Neville, Osman, Arteta, Fellaini, Pienaar, Cahill, Nash, Yobo, Van der Meyde, Jacobsen, Jutkiewicz.

Arsenal (from): Almunia, Sagna, Toure, Gallas, Clichy, Eboue, Denilson, Song, Nasri, Adebayor, Van Persie, Fabianski, Diaby, Vela, Ramsey, Gibbs, Djourou, Bendtner, Wilshere.
