Arsenal have the chance to open up an 8-point gap at the top of the English Premier League when they host Crystal Palace.

English Premier League leaders Arsenal host Everton on Wednesday looking to extend their lead on top of the table to five points.

Arsenal are looking for their third successive league win after beating Aston Villa and Leicester in their last two games.

They sit on top of the table with 57 points, two more than second place Manchester City and are keen to extend their lead atop the standings.

Everton on the other hand are coming off a 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa and are languishing in 18th place with 21 points.

Mikel Arteta’s current side could now become the third Arsenal team to reach 60 points in their first 25 EPL games with a win here.

Everton are winless in seven consecutive away matches in the Premier League and have scored just one goal in that time.

Arteta returns to his former side seeking revenge after Everton recorded a shock 1-0 victory against Arsenal on February 4.

If the Gunners are to clinch their first English Premier League title since 2004, they cannot afford to drop points here with City breathing down their necks.

Can Everton record a double over their mighty opponents or will Arsenal make light work of the match and get their third successive win?
