We are all set for an enticing London derby on Wednesday as Arsenal host West Ham hoping to leapfrog their rivals on the EPL table

Struggling Everton are set to host Arsenal at Goodison Park on Monday night, looking for a first win in eight matches.

The Toffees come into the game on the back of a 4-1 humiliation in the Merseyside derby, leaving them in 16th with 15 points.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are also coming off a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United and remain in seventh place with 23 points.

Everton have not won since seeing off Norwich 2-0 at the end of September and it does not look good for manager Rafael Benitez.

The pressure is truly on the Spanish tactician as a defeat to the Gunners could see the former Liverpool manager depart.
