Arsenal will play Everton in the FA Cup Quarter-Final on Saturday in a massive game for both teams. The Gunners are searching for their first silverware in nearly a decade and will be desperate to navigate their way past their north-west rivals.

Today's big cup game starts at 12.45 p.m. GMT (7.45 a.m. EST) and can be watched online through live stream via the link provided below.

In team news, the Gunners will be without midfielder Jack Wilshere following his fractured foot, which occurred during England's friendly with Denmark during the week.

Meanwhile, it will still be too early for Aaron Ramsey and Kim Kallstrom to make their return to fitness and will miss out on today's game.

In slightly better news for Everton, defender Antolin Alcaraz will be available after recovering from a muscle problem that has kept him out of action for six games.

Arsenal must return to form after losing 1-0 to Stoke in the English Premier League last weekend. The FA Cup is an unforgiving place, and should the Gunners not bounce right back today their season could quickly start to look like it's falling apart.

That will be something manager Arsene Wenger wants to avoid at all costs. In recent years his team have often looked like competing for trophies until about two-thirds of the way through the season, when they suddenly fell off and lost a hold in all competitions they were competing in.

Wenger will be hoping this season will finally be the first silverware for his team since 2005.

Wenger has admitted the FA Cup is on his radar this season. He said, "It [the FA Cup] is one of the priorities. We had a disappointing result at Stoke and it is very important to come back with a strong response. The FA Cup is our absolute priority, just because it is our next game."

Everton manager Roberto Martinez, has said, "It's going to be a fascinating game from every angle you want to look into. We all know Arsenal have been an outstanding team for many years now and this season, apart from the setback they had at the weekend, they've been very, very consistent."

He added, "Playing at home is a major factor for them and they're going to try to take advantage of that and bounce back from the weekend. If you wanted to find a bad time to play them, now is probably the moment. The fixture in December gave us all a clear indication of what's needed if you want to be successful at the Emirates, and I think it's reaching that level of perfection to which we aspire."
