Gunners host Merseysiders on Tuesday in a crucial fixture.
Arsenal entertain an in-form Everton side at the Emirates on Tuesday night in front of the live Sky TV cameras, with both teams knowing nothing but a win will do in their bid to finish in the top four of the Premier League this campaign, and with it entry into next season’s lucrative Uefa Champions League.
Arsene Wenger’s men are currently riding high, third in the top flight, although having played a game more than their rivals in fourth and fifth positions, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.
Meanwhile, David Moyes’s men are coming silently up on the rails, in sixth position in the table, but now only three points off a Champions League spot with now just six games of the season left for the Toffees to play.
The North Londoners, who left it late before coming from behind to beat relegation-threatened Norwich City at home on Saturday afternoon, should welcome back creative Czech Republic midfield player Tomas Rosicky after a hamstring problem and German defender Per Mertesacker following a one-game ban.
However, keeper Lukasz Fabianski looks like missing out with a rib problem.
The visitors, meanwhile, have no new injury issues to worry about after their 2-0 home win over struggling Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
