Arsenal have bounced back from a recent dip in form that saw them go four games without a win in all competitions (D1, L3), including league defeats to Everton and Manchester City, with two season-defining away victories against Aston Villa and Leicester City.
While the former was a dramatic high-scoring contest, the latter was decided by a single goal from Gabriel Martinelli.
These results means Arsenal have returned to the top of the table after title-contenders Manchester City had snatched it away from them earlier last month. In fact, Arteta's side opened a sizable five-point buffer over Pep Guardiola's juggernaut.
However, the Citizens ensured they remain hot on the heels of Gunners, cutting down the gap to two again after beating Bournemouth in stunning fashion, as the three-horse title race continues to heat up ahead of sason's business end.
Mikel Arteta will want his troops to maintain their momentum, pick up another three points as they look to cash in their game in hand with vengeance on their minds.
As for Everton, they also got a crucial victory over Leeds in a relegation six-pointer either side of a dismal Merseyside derby defeat and home loss against Aston Villa last time out in which they wasted numerous golden goal-scoring chances.
The Toffees are now back in the relegation zone after other results went against them over the weekend, but crucially are only one point adrift of safety as of yet.

With Sean Dyche's battling for each and every point in sight in order to secure survival, there should be no fear factor here against the league leaders after handing them a 1-0 upset at Goodison Park in the reverse fixture early February.
