Arsenal will look for a win to give ourselves a chance of snatching fourth place when we take on Everton at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

Despite winning six of their last seven games, Arsenal are in fifth place, one point behind fourth placed Liverpool and three adrift of third placed City. Everybody will be under scrutiny so you just want the teams like Everton to fight against us, Middlesbrough will fight against Liverpool, Watford will fight against City.
Both Lukaku and midfielder Ross Barkley could be making farewell appearances for Everton, who are bidding to complete their first league double over Arsenal since the 1985-86 campaign.

"We defended two situations [against Palace] worse than against West Ham", the German continued, though insisting that being home or away was not a contributing factor because they "pretty much play the same style wherever we play". "Did Liverpool? No. If we have to cope with it, we have to cope with it".More news: Comey to testify publicly in Congress
