By dissecting the team into various categories, the 50% mark is the perfect time to monitor several aspects of the Toffees play so far, …

Everton play their first home game of 2012 on Wednesday night with Bolton the visitors to Goodison. Everton are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Bolton at Goodison Park; the Trotter's last win was an emphatic 4-0 win on 17th December 2005. The sides met in November as 10-man Bolton lost 2-0 thanks to goals from Marouane Fellaini and Apostolos Vellios.

The Sky cameras are present for Everton's first match of the New Year, as the Toffees travel to the Hawthorns to play West Brom.

Louis Saha | Striking Struggles | Opta Stats

Unable to find that elusive bargain of a striker in the summer, mainly due to the paltry scraps of cash their bleak bank balance forces them to barter with, Everton have unsurprisingly struggled in front of goal this season. In fact, only Swansea and Wigan – both pre-season favourites to be relegation fodder – have scored fewer than the 18 strikes the Toffees have registered so far. On countless occasions Everton have dominated games, carved open opponents, sent in lavish …

Robin on Song at Arsenal Party

On a weekend of celebration for Arsenal Football Club, a wonder strike from Robin van Persie enabled the Gunners to sign off their 125th anniversary weekend with a familiar 1-0 score. Arsenal typically, dominated the majority of possession (61.3) but were hindered by playing without a recognised full-back. The injury to Andre Santos in the Champions League match against Olympiakos, forced Arsene Wenger into changing his defence yet again. Amazingly, the Gunners have named 20 different starting back four combinations …

Arsenal v Everton - Match Preview

Arsenal celebrate 125 years this weekend with a match at home to struggling Everton. The Gunners go into this tough clash having taking 19 points from a possible 21 in the league and having had the opportunity to rest the majority of the first team in mid-week against Olympiakos. Last season, Arsenal won this fixture 2-1 after a dubious goal from Saha in the first half. However, these two sides have had many faces come and go since then, one …
Johnny Heitinga v Everton Centre Backs

Johnny Heitinga v Everton Centre Backs

Seen by many supporters to have been Everton's last marquee signing, Johnny Heitinga has continually struggled to establish himself on the pitch in his more natural position of centre-back. Brought in to help fill the void left by Joleon Lescott, more often that not he has found himself required to fill in at right-back, or as a defensive midfielder at Everton, with David Moyes preferring to use Phil Jagielka and Sylvain Distin at the back. The Dutchman now fiercely divides opinion at Goodison Park. …
