Arsene Wenger's alarming March has seen them virtually out of the title race, while also allowing Everton to catch up, with a victory over the North London side at Goodison Park on Sunday taking them to within a point of their opponents, with a game in hand.
"We respect and admire this Arsenal team and we know we'll have to be perfect," Everton manager Roberto Martinez said. "But if we achieve that level of perfection in our performance, we're capable of competing against anyone at Goodison -- it's the perfect place to try to do that.
"It [the home form] is very significant, especially at this stage of the season, where the season has been so good and the players have earned the opportunity to be challenging for a top-four finish. It's not by accident that we've got ourselves into this position and we want to fight now for every point we can.
"With four games out of the seven to be at Goodison, that's going to be a major influence, and we're going to use that to our advantage.
"Arsenal this weekend is a great opportunity, a great occasion but, in the same manner, winning it doesn't guarantee you a place in the top four and losing it doesn't put you out of the race. There's 21 points to play for and it's down to how many we can get of those."
Arsenal drew with Everton in the Premier League reverse fixture at the Emirates, but beat the Toffees 4-1 in the FA Cup quarterfinal, and Wenger will hope for a result akin to the latter.
"It's an opportunity to go forward and as well an opportunity to make a distance with Everton," Wenger said. "As I told you after the last game against Man City, we look in front of us and behind us as well. That's what the game is about on Sunday.
"Everton are a good side, that's why they are where they are. I think in the first game we were caught just at the end. In the second game we won 4-1 and scored two late goals, so they were two interesting games. I think it will again be very interesting on Sunday."
Team news: Everton: Ross Barkley is a doubt for the game with a calf problem, while Phil Jagielka and Steven Pienaar are ruled out along with long-term victims Arouna Kone, Darron Gibson, who is close to a return, and Bryan Oviedo.
