Arsenal vs. Everton: Preview and TV schedule

Michael Regan

Arsenal and Everton go head-to-head over a place in the FA Cup semifinals in Saturday's early kickoff.

With Manchester City the only other powerhouse left in the FA Cup, both Arsenal and Everton will consider themselves in with a brilliant chance of going all the way and lifting the trophy. Only Manchester United have lifted the FA Cup more times than the Gunners, but they haven't emerged victorious since 2005. Everton, meanwhile, haven't lifted the FA Cup since ten years before that.

With home advantage Arsenal are certainly the favourites, but they head into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat away at Stoke City, and still dogged by injury problems. They also haven't beaten the high-flying Toffees in almost two years, with the last three meetings between these sides ending deadlocked.

The latest injury to be added to Arsène Wenger's long list is that of Jack Wilshere, whose World Cup is in doubt after he picked up a foot injury on international duty. Aaron Ramsey and Kim Källström are both still among those sidelined, while Nacho Monreal and Laurent Koscielny are doubts. Everton have no new team news, with Phil Jagielka's return close, but not close enough.

Arsenal injuries and suspensions

Out: Abou Diaby (knee), Theo Walcott (knee), Jack Wilshere (foot), Aaron Ramsey (thigh), Kim Källström (back). In doubt: Nacho Monreal (foot), Laurent Koscielny (hamstring).
