Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 24 Premier League home matches against Everton (W20 D4), since a 2-1 defeat in January 1996.

Everton are looking to complete their first PL double over Arsenal, having won 2-1 at Goodison Park in December.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has been directly involved in five goals in his last seven PL appearances, with three strikes and two assists. That is as many as in his previous 23 outings in the competition.
