Olivier Giroud is back in the Arsenal side after being rested for the midweek clash against Hull at the Emirates.

The Frenchman has been Arsenal's main man in front of goal this season, and was given a rest by manager Arsene Wenger, with Nicklas Bendtner starting and scoring.

But Giroud returns as Arsenal look to open-up a seven-point advantage at the top of the table after seeing Chelsea and Manchester City dropped points yesterday.

Arsenal: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Arteta, Wilshere, Ramsey, Ozil, Cazorla, Giroud.

Substitutes: Fabianski, Vermaelen, Monreal, Rosicky, Flamini, Walcott, Bendtner.

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Oviedo, Distin, Jagielka, Barry, Barkley, Pienaar, McCarthy, Mirallas, Lukaku.

Substitutes: Robles, Heitinga, Jelavic, Deulofeu, Naismith, Osman, Stones.
