Tonight we welcome the Toffee’s to the Emirates in a game that could really kick us on in the run in, or it could really derail us and put a halt to our great run. There is real positives on the teamsheet today as Rosicky and the BFG are both back available and I could go a long way to find an Arsenal fan who wouldn’t want both of them in the first team right now.
