Arsenal star: We need to be aware of these two ‘really good’ Everton players

Everton Goodison 3

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin looks ahead to his side’s Premier League clash with Everton.

Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has pinpointed Everton duo Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas as the two players his side need to pay extra attention to on Sunday, the club’s official website report.

The Gunners go into the match looking to bounce back from a disappointing 3-1 Champions League defeat at home to French outfit Monaco on Wednesday.

The Toffees, in contrast, swept past Young Boys of Switzerland 7-2 on aggregate in the Europa League, and following their devastating performance Bellerin is well aware of threat goal-getters Lukaku and Miralles pose.

"Everton have got a lot of good players, especially up front like Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas. They're really good players with good technique and they'll score goals so we need to be careful,” Bellerin said.

"It's going to be a hard game because they need points that they've missed throughout the season. We know they're going to go 100 per cent."

The deadly attacking duo?

Poor Swiss outfit Young Boys felt the full force of the Toffees powerful attack, but for boss Roberto Martinez, he will be mystified as to why his fearsome duo have failed to repeat their European exploits in the Premier League.

With 26 Premier League matches gone, the Belgium internationals only have a combined tally of 12 goals - which rather frighteningly is two less than Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin.

It just hasn’t clicked for the Merseysiders going forward this season, and Lukaku in particular has often been somewhat wasteful - no more so than during last weekend’s 2-2 draw at home to Leicester City.

However, their talent is obvious and with the Goodison Park outfit renowned for late surges up the table, Martinez will be hopeful the goals and subsequent positive results can start to arrive - beginning on Sunday.
