Arsenal will be looking to bounce back following their Champions League defeat against MonacoReuters

Arsenal and Everton face each other at the Emirates stadium as both sides look to improve their respective positions in the Premier League.

After a humbling 1-3 home defeat to Ligue 1 Monaco in the first leg round of 16 of the Champions League, the Gunners will be looking to bounce back in this Premier League fixture against Everton.

The North London club came under heavy criticism after they again failed to do well in the round of sixteen of the Champions League for a fifth consecutive year. The Gunners chances of qualifying to the quarter-finals of the Champions League is quite low, following their heavy defeat at home.

And Wenger admits that his side played poorly and made a lot of mistakes against Monaco on Wednesday.

"It is always hard (to watch the match again), it is hard to see that you make mistakes," Wenger told Arsenal's official website. "We are all human beings. We were born without any guarantee that we would not make mistakes."

However, the 65-year-old Frenchman insists that his side have a very good opportunity to "put things right" when they face Everton on Sunday.

"It is a very good opportunity for us to put things right again. Having watched the game again, we started quite well and the goal against us was a big blow."

"We were shocked that we were 1-0 down after we rushed our game. We lost our discipline and everybody became too individual, we were too impatient, then we lost our game a little bit."

"Apart from that, we are on a strong run. This is a different competition and it is just important we continue our run in the Premier League again."

Everton, on the other hand, will also be looking to get a positive result in this fixture despite them doing pretty poorly in the Premier League of late.

The Toffees seem to be focusing at their energies in the Europa League, where they have managed to progress to the round of 16.

Due to this reason, their Premier League form has suffered as they have only managed to register a single win in their last six fixtures.

Many believe that Everton have a good chance of picking up some points at Arsenal, following their recent Champions League defeat against Monaco, but manager Roberto Martinez insists that Arsenal will be back to their best on Sunday.

"I don't think Arsenal will suffer from a psychological setback after what happened in their last game," said Martinez, according to the Guardian. "They have incredible experience in these sorts of games."

"We expect an Arsenal fully focused on trying to carry on the outstanding form they have in the league."

Despite admitting that Everton have a "real difficult task" ahead of them, the Spaniard says that his side also be hoping to get a good result.

"Arsenal have only had one home league defeat and we know we have a real difficult task in front of us. But at the same time, after our result last weekend, we are desperate to perform well and get a good result."

Expected Starting Line-ups:

Arsenal: Ospina; Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs; Coquelin, Cazorla, Ozil, Welbeck; Sanchez, Giroud

Everton: Howard, Baines, Stones, Jagielka, Coleman, McCarthy, Barry, Barkley, Mirallas, Lennon, Lukaku
