Roberto Martinez sticks with the same team that defeated Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford in the week, their first win at Old Trafford in 21 years.
Arsenal: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gibbs; Arteta, Wilshere; Ramsey, Ozil, Cazorla; Giroud
Everton: Howard; Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Oviedo; Barry, McCarthy; Mirallas, Barkley, Pienaar; Lukaku
