One of the games of the weekend will take place in Goodison Park on Sunday as Everton play host to Arsenal. Arsenal sit four points ahead of Everton in the league table but Everton have a game in hand and the game tomorrow is a home one for the toffees. If Everton win tomorrow they will be in pole position for fourth place and Champions League football next season. Roberto Martinez has put together a terrific squad the additions of Gareth Barry, Lukaku and McCarthy have been essential in getting Everton into the position they find themselves. Along with those imports Barkley, Mirallas , Baines and Coleman have been having career years and Everton as a club find themselves truly fighting for Champions League football with only seven games to go.
While Everton are one of the most in form teams in the league, Arsenal's season has come to a stuttering halt recently going out of the Champions League and struggling in the Premier league, losing to Stoke , Liverpool and Chelsea in three of their last four away outings in the league. This poor run in form has coincided with injuries to Ozil, Wilshire which have probably compounded the loss of Aaron Ramsey. Arsene Wenger knows his side must get a result tomorrow in Everton to give them fighting chance of remaining fourth in the league.
What a game we have to start Sunday's football, two teams who love to play possession football battling it out to win the right to Champiosn League football next year. This game could well come down to a battle of tactics between the managers. Arsenal may approach this game cautiously knowing that a draw is enough to keep the Gunners in pole position but I just cant see Arsenal's defence containing this Everton attack. With Lukaku, Mirallas and Barkley Everton have genuine match winners on the pitch and I think tomorrow the Toffees will take a step towards guaranteeding Champions League football.
