History of the Everton v Arsenal fixture

Arsenal face a trip to Everton at Goodison Park at lunchtime on Saturday, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 90 games played, Gunners have recorded 26 wins, and Everton have come away with 39 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in August 2004, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 4 winners in a Premiership match.
