Everton will hope to continue their fine home form against the teams above them when Arsenal visit Goodison Park. David Moyes, who recently celebrated 10 years at the helm of the Merseyside club, has masterminded victories over Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham in the Toffees’ last three home games. Everton, however, have painful memories of Arsenal. It's five years since they last beat the Gunners, whose 6-1 win at Goodison in August 2009 was the Toffees' worst home league defeat since 1958. Arsenal is also in rampant form, winning five league games in a row for just the second time in two years. Robin van Persie needing just four Premier League goals to become the first player to reach 30 in a season since Cristiano Ronaldo in 2007/8. The Dutch star predictably grabbed the winner when the sides met at the Emirates Stadium in December, and has scored five times against the Toffees in his Arsenal career.
• Everton have won each of their last three league matches at Goodison, keeping clean sheets in all of them.
• Arsenal have scored more goals (80) against Everton than any team against any single opponent in Premier League history.
Everton are expected to be without midfield trio Jack Rodwell (hamstring), Seamus Coleman (thigh) and Darron Gibson (knee), but Steven Pienaar is available for selection again after being cup-tied for the visit of Sunderland,
Arsene Wenger is expected to keep an almost unchanged starting lineup, following recent form which includes five Premier League victories on the bounce. The one spot which seems up for grabs is on the left flank where Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will look to continue over Yossi Benayoun.
