What has been said?
Everton boss Dyche was left thrilled with his side’s performance against Sheffield United and claimed it would have been an ‘injustice’ if the Toffees didn’t come away with anything.
He said: “The only frustration is we let two soft goals in. That was more of a team thing, not individuals, the team’s shape, defensively, but another good performance and a performance on the road as well. So frustrated, but pleased overall with the performance levels.”
Meanwhile, Arteta has hailed Arsenal’s will to win.
After the club’s 3-1 victory over Man Utd, he said: “We all worked so hard and planned everything for moments like this.
“These moments will stick with us, with the crowd so connected to the team with the big history of these matches, it’s great.
“The will, the determination of the team, that will to win and go and go and go, I’m so proud of them.
“A team needs different tools to win football matches, and the capacity to react. We did that in the first half and that set the tone and brought some calmness to the team.”
Arsenal haven’t had a great track record at Goodison Park in recent years, but we expect them to break the ‘curse’ on Sunday.
