Premier League: Arsenal v Everton match preview

A look ahead to this week’s Premier League fixture at the Emirates

Arsenal against Everton is one of the oldest fixtures in English football history and the latest chapter is set to be written at the Emirates on Sunday.

Arsenal are currently 4 points clear at the top of the league and a strong Everton side in fine form will be sure to test out Arsenal’s true title credentials.

Both teams have only lost once in there last ten games (Everton once all season) and the pair drew both matches last campaign.

Arsenal are the last ‘big’ team to play this weekend so there might be added pressure to get a result but if the fine goalscoring form of Aaron Ramsey continues, they might be too much for Everton.
