15 August 2010: Everton 1 Arsenal 6

Arsenal caught the Blues completely off guard on the opening day of last season. Everton were still on holiday as the Gunners smashed in three goals in each half, with Saha nabbing an injury-time consolation. David Moyes will do his best to ensure there is no repeat this weekend.

18 March 2007: Everton 1 Arsenal 0

The Blues' last home league win against Arsenal came courtesy of an Andy Johnson stoppage-time strike in March 2007. Although Arsenal knocked the ball around with typical panache it was Everton who threatened more often, twice hitting the woodwork through Lee Carsley and Leon Osman before Johnson slotted past Jens Lehman late on.

While Everton fans may not remember him so fondly now, Wayne Rooney's first Premier League goal came in undeniably spectacular fashion as the Blues saw off Arsenal at Goodison Park. Rooney, then just 16, came off the bench and struck a breathtaking last-minute winner, prompting Arsene Wenger to state: "Rooney is the biggest England talent I've seen since I arrived in England."
