A win will launch the Gunners ahead of the Toffees in the Premier League standings.
Arsenal, fresh off a scoreless draw with Aston Villa Saturday, are unbeaten in their last five matches. Arsene Wenger's club failed to notch a goal this past weekend but scored 10 of them in the three matches prior.
As it stands, the Gunners are in sixth place, one point behind Everton.
The Toffees, however, have won just once since the month of September. David Moyes' men stormed out of the gate in EPL play, winning four of their first six matches. Scoring goals has been problematic ever since, which could be troublesome with Arsenal hungry to get back to their high-scoring ways.
You'll want to tune in Wednesday afternoon as the two clubs attempt to claw their way up EPL standings.

Everton: Can the Toffees fend off Arsenal and retain fifth place in the EPL standings?
A surprise contender that roared out to a 4-1-1 start in Premier League play, Moyes' club now have both Arsenal and Tottenham (tied with the Gunners) nipping at their heels in the EPL standings.
A win and the Toffees can buy some breathing room. Everton have not lost in six home EPL matches this season, so confidence will not be an issue.
Belgian star Marouane Fellaini has been the club's biggest bright spot this season, and the talented midfielder will need to be at his best to keep the Toffees undefeated at Goodison Park. For a squad with Champions League aspirations, a match of this magnitude holds plenty of weight—especially considering battles with Manchester City and Tottenham follow Wednesday's clash with Arsenal.
If the Toffees claim to be legitimate Champions League contenders, they must defend their home field against Wenger and the red-hot Gunners, keeping pressure on the top four teams in the standings.
Arsenal: The Gunners need to start picking up points in bunches.
We're starting to wonder if Wenger and his club remember what it's like to lose a match. Even on a day where they failed to tally a single goal, the Gunners came away with a point against Aston Villa.
Of course, their sixth-place standing in the EPL shows what little value draws actually hold.
Walking away with a point is a nice consolation prize, but Arsenal need to start picking up wins. Dominating Tottenham 5-2 two EPL matches ago was an impressive sight, but the Gunners' 0-0 draw with Aston Villa exposed the inconsistencies that still plague this club.
There is plenty of Premier League action yet to be played, but Wenger and his men remain in search of a balanced approach from match to match.
Spanish duo Mikel Arteta and Santi Cazorla must reemerge for the Gunners to be successful. The two have struggled to find room to roam as of late, and it's played a big part in the club's lack of consistency.
Traveling has proven to be somewhat of a chore for the Gunners, who have notched just two goals in their last three Premier League matches away from home. This will be a tough test for Wenger's club as they attempt to extend their unbeaten streak to six matches and climb into fifth place overall.
Goals will come at a premium in this match between two clubs fighting to ascend in the EPL standings. Both have struggled with consistency as of late, but it has affected the Toffees more in terms of coming away with points. That said, Moyes' club is at home, where they are a much more formidable foe.
Everton pulls out a closely contested match 2-1 at Goodison Park.
