Everton v Arsenal

5th April 2019, 16:46 by Chris Rivers

Arsenal can move back into third place when they travel to a resurgent Everton side in Sunday's sole Premier League game.

The Gunners are looking to go back above Tottenham as they play their game in hand on the sides around them in the battle to finish in the top four but will need to improve on recent away performances.

While Monday's 2-0 win over Newcastle made it 10 successive victories at the Emirates Stadium, Unai Emery's side have won just one of their last eight games away from home.

They, at least, have a good record against Everton to call upon, winning seven of the last eight meetings, while they have 97 victories over the Toffees in total - more than any one side has beaten another in English football history.

Emery has concerns over the fitness of Granit Xhaka and Laurent Koscielny with both due to undergo late fitness tests, while Lucas Torreira is suspended and Hector Bellerin, Danny Welbeck and Rob Holding are long-term absentees.

The only good news on the injury front for Arsenal is that Aaron Ramsey trained on Friday following a groin injury.

Everton welcome Arsenal to Goodison Park looking to claim the scalp of another top-four contender after beating Chelsea 2-0 last time out at home.

They followed that up with an impressive 2-0 victory at West Ham last Saturday, relieving some of the pressure had been building on head coach Marco Silva.

The Portuguese says he expects Jordan Pickford to keep his place in the team for Sunday's game, despite the England No.1 goalkeeper having been involved in a scuffle outside a pub last weekend.

The only injury concern for Everton is Yerry Mina, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury suffered on international duty.
