Premier League leaders Arsenal will be looking to put the disappointment of their first defeat of the season behind them when Everton visit the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, September 11.
The Gunners saw their 100 per cent record come to an end last weekend at Old Trafford, where they lost 3-1 to Manchester United, who continued their resurgence after a poor start.
Mikel Arteta's side still hold a one-point lead over Manchester City (2nd) and Tottenham (3rd) in the standings and they will attempt to get back on the winning trail against the struggling Toffees.

Arteta felt his players lacked discipline in conceding the three goals to United and admits they need to show more consistency against their title rivals to come out on top.
"I'm very disappointed that we haven't won the game because the game was there for the taking," the Spaniard said. "We haven't won it because we lacked some discipline in certain moments to defend certain actions, and then we were involved in something in front of the opponent's goal.
"We need to be consistent with the top teams and to challenge at the top of this league, really you have to come here and play the way that you play, but also win and that's a very different story.
"But to play the way that we did here today I want to see how many teams will do it this season."
The Merseysiders have yet to register a win in the league this term, although they held arch-rivals Liverpool to a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park on Saturday to keep their first clean sheet of the campaign.
It was also their fourth one-point haul on the spin following 1-1 stalemates against Nottingham Forest, Brentford and Leeds prior to the city derby.

Everton manager Frank Lampard was encouraged by what he saw from his players against the Reds and is confident the results will come once the new signings have settled in.
"More than anything, the spirit and work ethic from our players was fantastic," Lampard said. Liverpool are a great team over the last six or seven years and we're at the beginning of the process but what you see today is a team that's progressing, we're working hard.
"We showed spirit, hard work but also quality to play and we're playing better, and we will get better.
"The positive side is the way the team is playing and it's developing. Some of the new players are just in and they're going to get a lot better. We're working very, very hard, I think today was a sign of that."
