Could Everton repeat there feat of last season where Rooney Stamped his presence on the EPL with a spectacular late winner that ended Arsenals Unbeaten run. Well if so they may have to do it without him as he may not be fit for this match. Moyes will wait till game time to make his decision on Rooney, Ferguson, and Graveson. Yobo (who's out of the side due to International duty), Pistone (knee), Wright (Knee) Nyarko (Foot) will all miss this match.

Game Preview

With this many injuries it will be an uphill battle.

Oh Yes Mr Rads end the match in a draw. 1-1 to the mighty Blues.
Now in the scheme of things this result may not mean much yet for the next month we will play teams in the top 6 of the EPL its a good start.

Heres the match report on a well deserved point at Goodison:

Late Radzinski goal stops Gunners in their tracks


Everton stopped Arsenal in their tracks with a hugely committed display at Goodison Park to earn a 1-1 draw with a late Tomasz Radzinski goal.
Arsenal maintained their unbeaten record this season, but it was an uncomfortable night for them. Everton roughed them up, did not give them a moments peace, and eventually got their reward through the Canadian's late goal.

And the irony was that it was an Arsenal player who finally made the difference.

Francis Jeffers, back at Everton on loan after an unhappy spell at Highbury, will have loved every second of his part in the goal that stopped Arsenal chalking up another win on the back of Kanu's first-half effort.

Jeffers came on as substitute, his eighth such appearance in 10 games since his return to Merseyside, and sprinted away to fire in a shot that Jens Lehmann could not hold, giving Radzinski the chance to score in the 75th minute.

Arsenal escaped on 16 minutes when Rooney's corner flew into the box, hit an unsuspecting Kevin Kilbane, and deflected goalwards where Ashley Cole hacked off the line.

But on 29 minutes the visitors made the breakthrough. Thierry Henry slipped the ball through a square back line and Kanu was onto it in a flash to slip round David Unsworth and Nigel Martyn before sliding home his first league goal of the season.

Nine minutes later Rooney squandered a gilt-edged chance to equalise. Kilbane swung a cross in from the left and the teenager powered into the six yard box unmarked, but sent his point-blank header wide of a post, holding his head in disbelief.

Freddie Ljungberg got himself booked for charging down a Rooney free-kick, and from the second effort Rooney fired his next effort through the wall for Lehmann to block.

When Kilbane limped off, Everton's response was another striker with Jeffers introduced to the fray.

And it was he who played a major part in Everton's deserved equaliser on 74 minutes.

Ferguson's header wide sent Jeffers scampering away on the right and when his fierce cross-shot was palmed away by Lehmann, Radzinski was coming in unmarked on the left to angle his shot into the unguarded net.

Wot a finish by Radz, he was around 5 feet away from the ball and had to slide shot it into the net from such a tight angle.

David Moyes has given praise to the Evertonians at the match for thier win. They pured us on even when we went a goal down. And we responded by maintaining the pressure till Rads got the equaliser.

Evertonians Spurred us on
