The 23-year-old Wales international has not featured for the Gunners since suffering a thigh strain during the 3-1 win at West Ham on Boxing Day.

Ramsey, who scored 13 goals in the first half of the season, was only expected to be sidelined for around six weeks but a couple of niggling setbacks have delayed his return.

However, he is now in line to make a welcome comeback as Arsenal take on the Toffees in a match which will have a crucial bearing on whether or not they can secure a top-four finish.

Spanish left-back Nacho Monreal could also feature at Goodison Park, while midfielder Abou Diaby is closing in on a return after being out for more than a year with a serious knee injury.

"Aaron and Nacho Monreal are back training with the squad, so that is good news. Hopefully they will be available for Sunday. Diaby is back on the pitches, so that is good news," said Wenger.

Midfielders Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil remain on the sidelines but centre-back Laurent Koscielny may be available for the FA Cup semi-final against Wigan next weekend following his calf problem.

"The FA Cup will be too soon for Ozil, but he will hopefully be back soon after that," added Wenger.

Ozil later wrote on his Facebook page about a determination to return in good form, but at the right time.

The German said: "Dear fans, I can assure you that I'm doing my best to return to the pitch as soon as possible. But in the end, only two things matter: to have confidence in yourself and to be patient!"

Watch Everton take on Arsenal live on Sky Sports 1HD on Sunday at 1.30pm.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
