Everton have been impressive in recent months after bouncing back from a slow start to the season. They face Arsenal on the back of a draw against Bolton during mid-week, thanks to Jermain Beckford's 94th minute equalizer for the Merseyside club. Everton's home form will also be a worry for Arsenal as they have lost only once in 6 games at the Goodison Park when Newcastle visited in September.
An inability to score goals has been a worry for Everton manager, David Moyes, who saw his side pass off many opportunities to test Bolton keeper Jussi Jaskalainen during mid-week. He revealed his thoughts of resorting to long balls to add to the goal tally.
He said, I might go and start crashing the ball into the box, do it that way. It doesn't really matter what you do between the boxes - it is what happens in the boxes.
