Hi to Thomas Armitage: "I'm a 9 year old gunners fan and I'm hoping for a 2-0 arsenal win, with Ozil assisting both and Sanogo and Giroud to score #COYG."

Hello to Keelan Twomey "Hi david. Have a good feeling today, I think the verminator is raring to go, and have a feeling he'll score, and ozil to get the other.. 2-0!! COYG! Please post this, following your commentary while at work today!" Happy to oblige!

A quick update on the match odds with Sky Bet as they make Arsenal the 21/20 favourites with Everton 5/2 and the draw on offer at 12/5. As ever, Sky Bet have some Price Boosts on their first goalscorer markets with the odds on Santi Cazorla and Kevin Mirallas increased to open the scoring.

Good afternoon to Rich Gregory: "Everton to get a win today 2-1, lukaku to score both for the blues and giroud off the bench for arsenal. Hoping Barkley will back to his best today! Come on you blues, Allez Allez oh!!!"

Good afternoon to Matt from Bishops Stortford: "So looking forward to this - the tie of the round easily. Though Arsenal are a hard team to beat at any time, I have this sneaking feeling that Everton have just enough today to get a positive result. Lukaku returning is a massive filip and he is usually good for a late goal so I'm hedging my bets between 1-1 and 1-2 with Lukaku as last goalscorer."

Hello again to Chris Green from Huddersfield: "Arsenal to win 2-0, with Ozil and Sanogo scoring the goals."

Hi to Josh Wing: "Not a bad line-up for Arsenal. Hopefully the Gunners can put the Stoke game behind them and come back in full force."

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger names a strong starting XI which includes club-record signing Mesut Ozil. Captain Thomas Vermaelen comes into defence in place of Laurent Koscielny, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mathieu Flamini are also in the side, which has Lukasz Fabianski in goal with Yaya Sanogo handed another chance to impress in attack. England midfielder Jack Wilshere will be out for at least six weeks after he fractured his foot during England's friendly with Denmark. Everton are without captain Phil Jagielka because of a hamstring injury, so 19-year-old John Stones starts in defence again. Spaniard Joel Robles is in goal, while on-loan Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku starts up front.

Everton: Robles, Coleman, Stones, Distin, Baines, McCarthy, Barry, Mirallas, Barkley, Pienaar, Lukaku. Subs: Hibbert, McGeady, Deulofeu, Naismith, Osman, Howard, Browning.

Arsenal: Fabianski, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Flamini, Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Cazorla, Sanogo. Subs: Rosicky, Podolski, Giroud, Viviano, Jenkinson, Miyaichi, Gnabry.
