David Moyes and Arsene Wenger will lock horns on Wednesday

Closing the gap which separates them from the Premier League's top four will be the target for Everton and Arsenal on Wednesday.

The Toffees sit fifth at present, with the UEFA Champions League places four points above them.

Dropping four points in their last two games has left them playing catch-up, but a run of only one defeat in 10 suggests there is not too much wrong with the Toffees right now.

The same could be said for Arsenal, with the Gunners unbeaten in three and only a point worse off than their midweek opponents.

Inconsistency is plaguing Arsene Wenger's plans, though, and a disgruntled fan base has started to air its displeasure.

Wenger insists he is not overly concerned by Arsenal's patchy form, or the chants aimed in his direction during a goalless draw at Aston Villa on Saturday, but he will want to see his side improve on an away record which has already seen them drop 12 points on their travels.

David Moyes will be delighted to see Marouane Fellaini come back into contention for Everton.

The talismanic Belgian is available again after serving a one-match ban.

Phil Neville remains sidelined with a knee problem, so Phil Jagielka is expected to deputise as skipper for the third match in succession.

Arsenal will have forward Theo Walcott back from a shoulder problem for their trip to Merseyside.

Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky (Achilles) is back in full training after his long injury lay-off, but will not feature at Goodison Park.

Defender Andre Santos (stomach muscle) remains out of action, while midfielder Abou Diaby (thigh) continues his rehabilitation.
