The Gunners will hope to boost their bid for a Premier League title win on Wednesday night.

Arsenal will be out for revenge on Wednesday night when Mikel Arteta’s title-chasing side face relegation-threatened Everton at the Emirates Stadium.

The two sides have spent the entirety of the season sat at opposite ends of the Premier League table - but that meant little in the previous meeting last month when a James Tarkowski goal gave Sean Dyche a win in his first game in charge of the struggling Toffees.

There seemed to be some hangover from that Goodison Park defeat as Arsenal took just one point from their next two games after following up a home draw with Brentford by falling to a 3-1 defeat against title rivals Manchester City.

However, Arteta and his men have firmly established themselves as front-runners in the title race in the last two weeks by claiming maximum points from recent visits to Aston Villa and Leicester City to head into Wednesday’s rearranged meeting with Everton looking to move five points clear of City.

Why was the original meeting postponed?

The Premier League announced that all fixtures taking place over the weekend of 11th September would be postponed and rearranged following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II just days earlier.

Is the game broadcast live on television?

No, the original meeting of the two sides was not scheduled for live television broadcast and the Premier League’s blackout rule, which forbids any live coverage of games taking place a 3pm, comes into place.

Despite the rearranged game, the fixture can still not be permitted for live broadcast.

Where can I keep up-to-date with the game?

There is no live television coverage of the game but TalkSPORT are advertising they will have ‘live and exclusive national radio commentary of the entire 90 minutes - plus updates from FA Cup fifth round games taking place on Wednesday night.
