Blues and Reds get set for showdown

50-50 Challenge

Stubborn Martinez not making best use of Everton's strengths

Everton manager Roberto Martinez praises his side for their efforts in their 2-nil defeat by Arsenal.

Winless on their last 20 trips to Arsenal, this sequence of misery never looked like ending for Everton during Sunday's 2-0 defeat at the Emirates.

Two poor, entirely avoidable goals extend this alarming league form to one win in the last 11 league games. Just six points separate the Toffees and the dreaded relegation zone.

As it is has been throughout the season, there is a sense many of Everton's problems are self-inflicted. Yet another goal conceded from a set piece underlined this area of...

Arsenal rebound from Champions League defeat with win vs. Everton

ESPN FC's Craig Burley talks Arsenal's victory following a rough week in the Champions League.

LONDON -- Goals from Olivier Giroud and Tomas Rosicky gave Arsenal an easy 2-0 win vs. Everton. Here are three quick thoughts from their Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

1. Giroud scores, still not enough for Arsenal

It is quite difficult to know what to make of Olivier Giroud. Watching him against Monaco midweek and even at points in Sunday's game against Everton, when he contrived to miss a virtually free header from about six yards out not once but twice, it's difficult...

Everton creeping toward a return to form in time to face vulnerable Arsenal

The ESPN FC panel discuss the necessary elements to a potential Arsenal victory over Everton.

At the start of the season, central midfield stood out as the strongest unit in this Everton squad. Then a crippling mix of injuries to some and a loss of form for others led to more questions than answers in the middle of the park.

That is why the current situation is sure to be a welcome conundrum for Roberto Martinez. For the first time in his tenure, Martinez has four genuine central midfielders available to him, each presenting valid arguments for their inclusion.

Darron Gibson has hit the...

Fantasy preview: Week 27

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson previews a busy week of Premier League fixtures ahead, and suggests top ELP fantasy picks.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini looks ahead to Sunday's Premier League visit to Liverpool.

For the first time this season, all 20 Premier League teams will not be in action for a league game week because of the Capital One Cup Final. Cup finalists Chelsea and Tottenham are idle as are Leicester and QPR.

There is one game to check announced lineups in Week 27 before the ESPN FC fantasy game locks: West Ham-Crystal Palace.

West Ham vs. Crystal Palace

West Ham blew a two-goal lead at Tottenham for a disappointing draw in their last game on Feb. 22. Still, some impressive...

Plenty of blame to go around for Everton's domestic distress

An 88th-minute own goal by Matthew Upson was enough for Everton to come back and earn a point at home.

Everton clearly left Switzerland without the quality evident in Thursday's 4-1 win over Young Boys. Reality needed just four days and 90 minutes of football to set in at Goodison Park. This latest home disappointment, a 2-2 draw against Leicester, summed up the season concisely.

Flashes of European verve are offset by persistent mediocrity on the domestic front. Winless in six matches at Goodison, Everton's three home wins all season is simply not good enough, nor is a tally of six wins from 26...

Ross Barkley, Romelu Lukaku back in form as Everton topple Young Boys

Roberto Martinez's Everton responded magnificently to falling behind against Young Boys by scoring four unanswered goals.

Often inhibited by their own dwindling confidence and a constant injury list, this season has given way to an Everton squad unrecognisable from the one so close to Champions League qualification in the last campaign.

Therefore, it was not before time when flickers of last season broke through during this emphatic 4-1 victory over BSC Young Boys.

Everton continue to clear Europa League obstacles in a manner far removed from their Premier League inconsistencies, saving their most complete attacking...
