    Arsenal v Everton: FA CUP LIVE!

    Probable Lineups:

    arsenal evertonArsenal (4-2-3-1): Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Cazorla, Giroud

    Headlines will be surround the long injury lay-off to Jack Wilshere, which would mean the probable return of Frenchman Mathieu Flamini to partner Mikel Arteta in the midfield pivot.  The Gunners have not lost to Everton at the Emirates in 18 years and will look to keep it solid at expose the Toffees’ backline with their passing game.  Mesut Ozil, who didn’t have the best of times playing for his national side, will slot ‘in the hole’ behind Olivier Giroud who has been on decent form of late.

    Everton (4-3-3): Howard, Coleman, Alcaraz, Distin, Baines, Barry, McCarthy, Mirallas, Osman, Pienaar, Lukaku

    Romelu Lukaku climbed off the bench to give Everton the three points against West Ham last weekend and the Belgian will be keen to cause havoc for the Arsenal defence.  Roberto Martinez has issued a rallying cry ahead of the clash and holds no fear of the Gunners as the Merseysiders look to end a 18-year no win streak away to Arsenal – when they were still playing at Highbury – and knock the London side out of the FA Cup.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    A Dennis Bergkamp inspired Arsenal side crushed Everton 7-0 back in the 2004-2005 season.

    Danger Man

    Lukaku

    Romelu Lukaku has been an absolute sensation for Everton and he will be raring to go after coming back from an injury layoff.  Expect the powerful Belgian to give Mertesacker and co. and tough time at the back.

    Stats to get you head around…

    Arsenal vs. Everton: An Alternative Preview

    Arsenal and Everton have only met three times before in the FA Cup with the last time being in 1981. The Toffees have won twice (1910 & 1981) and Arsenal once (1928).

    Everton have won none of their last 19 away games against Arsenal in all competitions (W0 D4 L15), but have drawn the last two visits.

    Robert Martinez was coach of the Wigan Athletic side who won the FA Cup last season. His side’s victory came three days before being relegated from the Premier League with a defeat at the Emirates Stadium.

    Arsenal are unbeaten at the Emirates Stadium in their last 13 matches in domestic competition, winning 10 and drawing three.

    The Gunners have conceded just three goals in their last 13 domestic games at the Emirates, but Everton were one of those scorers in a 1-1 draw in the Premier League in December 2013.

    Mesut Ӧzil’s last goal for Arsenal came in the 1-1 draw against Everton back on December 8th 2013.

    Arsenal have progressed in 10 of their last 11 quarter finals, the exception being their last one in 2011 when they lost 0-2 to Manchester United.

    Arsenal have only lost two home FA Cup ties under Arsene Wenger in 39 matches (W27 D10 L2); against Leeds in Round 4 in 1997 and versus Blackburn last season in Round 5.

    Lukas Podolski has scored four goals in four FA Cup appearances for the Gunners.

    Everton have only won one of their last 10 FA Cup matches away from home against a fellow top flight team (W1 D4 L5).

    Steven Naismith has scored three goals in his last two FA Cup appearances.

    The last team to beat Everton in an FA Cup match were Wigan Athletic last season in the Quarter Final, who were managed by their current coach Robert Martinez.
