Sports Mole looks ahead to a crucial clash in the top-four race as Arsenal welcome Everton to the Emirates Stadium.

Third face sixth at the Emirates Stadium tonight as Arsenal and Everton clash looking to boost their Champions League credentials.

The Gunners are in pole position for a top-four finish in the Premier League after recording their fourth successive league victory in dramatic fashion against Norwich City last weekend.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger should have Tomas Rosicky back after missing the Norwich match with a hamstring strain, while Per Mertesacker returns to the squad after serving a one-match ban.

Wenger does have a fresh fitness worry with goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, who suffered a rib injury on Saturday that may see Wojciech Szczesny take his place in the starting XI.

Everton manager David Moyes is likely to stick with the same side that secured a fourth win in five Premier League games last weekend with a 2-0 success over Queens Park Rangers.

Recent Form:

Arsenal: LWWWWW

Everton: WLWWDW

Possible starting lineups:

Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Arteta, Ramsey, Rosicky, Cazorla, Giroud, Walcott

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Gibson, Osman, Fellaini, Pienaar, Mirallas, Anichebe

Sports Mole says: 2-1
