Arsenal should make changes after maintaining their four-point lead at the top in the Premier League on Wednesday against Hull.

Arsène Wenger will be tempted to recall the likes of Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Olivier Giroud while Theo Walcott could start for the first time since September.
But Bacary Sagna is rated by Wenger as short of fintess and will not return.

Meanwhile, Everton manager Roberto Martínez will take the same squad which defeated Manchester United in midweek to league leaders Arsenal this weekend.
Centre-back Antolín Alcaraz, who has yet to make his debut after a summer move because of injury, traveled with the team to Old Trafford and could be involved.

Left back Leighton Baines is still three to four weeks away from recovering from a broken toe while striker Arouna Kone and midfielder Darron Gibson are long-term absentees.

Key Notes:
Everton have gone 12 games since they last beat Arsenal, in March 2007 at Goodison Park. Their record at Arsenal is even worse; in 21 Premier League visits to Arsenal (Highbury and the Emirates Stadium), Everton have won just once, in January 1996. Arsenal have won 16 and drawn four of the remaining 20 games, scoring a massive 49 goals and conceding 16.
