The Toffee’s are just four points behind Arsene Wenger’s men but with a game in hand and a win on Sunday would only heighten the belief around Merseyside that Everton can seal a Champions League spot.

The club are enjoying a stunning season to date and have already surpassed their points total for this stage of the season, beating the 57 points they acquired after 31 games in the 2007/2008 season.

Roberto Martinez’s men are currently in a rich vein of form and will head into the clash on the back of five straight wins.

In contrast, Arsenal have won just two of their last 8 games to slip from first to fourth in the standings.

The club have drawn their last two games, against Swansea and Manchester City, both of those games were at home.

On the road, the Gunners have been a difficult prospect this season, winning nine of their 16 games away from home. Three of their five defeats have come in the last four games with 12 goal conceded in the process.

Injuries to Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott have not helped the Gunners cause.

All four are once again set to be missing this weekend although Ozil and Ramsey are edging closer to a first team return.

Martinez meanwhile has a selection headache of his own with Steven Naismith, Kevin Mirallas and Aiden McGeady all pushing for starts following impressive cameo’s last time out in the 3-1 win over Fulham.

Mirallas and Naismith both got on the scoresheet while McGeady claimed an assist in the win meaning that Gerard Deulofeu, Leon Osman and Ross Barkley will be sweating on their starting positions are unspectacular performances last time out.Rather interestingly history will be made this season as no team have ever had 60 or more points after 31 games of a Premier League season and failed to finish in the top four, a tally both clubs have already reached. The last three games between the sides have ended in draws with the most recent outing ending 1-1.
