Arsenal vs. Everton: Preview and TV schedule

Michael Regan

League leaders Arsenal face a tough test on Sunday, with high-flying Everton rolling into town.

Arsenal's 2-0 win over Hull City in midweek ensured they maintained their four-point gap at the top of the Premier League table heading into week 15, though they have a sterner test against Roberto Martínez's high-flying Everton side on Sunday.

The Toffees visited Old Trafford and haunted former boss David Moyes in midweek, picking up a 1-0 victory to move them up into fifth place in the table -- level on points with Merseyside rivals Liverpool. They've now not lost in their last seven Premier League matches, and they've certainly got the potential to upset the Gunners on Sunday.

Arsenal still are plagued by injuries, though are hoping that Mathieu Flamini and Bacary Sagna will shake off their groin and hamstring problems respectively. Everton will definitely be without the injured trio of Leighton Baines, Arouna Koné and Darron Gibson.

Arsenal injuries and suspensions

Out: Yaya Sanogo (back), Lukas Podolski (hamstring), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee), Abou Diaby (knee), Ryo Miyaichi (hamstring). In doubt: Mathieu Flamini (groin), Bacary Sagna (hamstring).
