Indeed, while Mikel Arteta has seen his side come up short against the biggest teams in the league, these are the kind of games Arsenal have generally won with relative ease since their dodgy start to the season.
By Monday night, Arsenal will know what they need to do in order to keep up with the top four race and will surely hope to take advantage of what looks like toxic Goodison at the moment.
Should they control the game correctly, the home support could well aid their cause.
