Arsenal and Everton will hope to continue their quest for silverware when they clash at the Emirates in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup later today.
While Arsenal trophy drought, not entering its 9th year, has been well documented, the Toffee’s have been forced to wait even longer for success, their FA Cup win in 1995 is the last time they lifted a top level trophy.
Both clubs are enjoying impressive season’s to date, with the Gunners still in contention for the title with 10 games to go, despite a recent blip in form, and Everton just nine points off the Champions league spots.
Both club’s will head into the game minus the services of some key men.
Arsenal will be without midfield pair Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere for the clash. Ramsey has yet to play this year as he struggles with a thigh injury, while Wilshere faces six weeks on the sidelines after he suffered a hairline fracture to his left foot in England’s 1-0 friendly win over Denmark midweek.
January signing Kim Kallstrom could finally make his debut after fully recovering from a back injury while Laurent Koscielny is winning his battle with a hamstring sustained on International duty with France and should feature.
Nacho Monreal has overcome the ankle injury that saw him miss the 1-0 defeat to Stoke, however Theo Walcott (knee) and Abou Diaby (knee) remain absent.
Everton meanwhile also have some worries going into the game with key defender Phil Jagielka once again set to miss out with a hamstring injury.
The return of Antolin Alcaraz will ease the loss of the England man as too will the presence of Romelu Lukaku up front for the Toffee’s. The giant Belgian scored on his return to first team action last time out against West Ham and his ability to make life difficult for defenders will help the Everton cause no end.
January signing Lacina Traore is out with a hamstring injury and will join long term absentees Bryan Oviedo (broken leg), Darron Gibson (knee) and Arouna Kone (knee) in the stands.
The two clubs drew 1-1 when they met at the Emirates in the league in December but they have a poor overall record in London losing 15 and drawing four of their last 19 games in the capital.
