Arsenal full-back Kieran Gibbs is confident the club's fresh legs can prove vital in the end of season shake up.

The Gunners are currently fourth in the Premier League, three points clear of Chelsea, and five clear of Newcastle United.

Gibbs is one of several players to recently return for Arsenal, with Bacary Sagna another comeback from injury, while Andre Santos and Jack Wilshere are also waiting in the wings.

"It is a relief to have a break until the next game and it was important for us to get that because we have played quite a lot recently in a short space of time," Gibbs said.

"We should have players coming back from injury now so we should be getting some fresh legs looking to go for the rest of the season strongly.

"Football changes so much. We've seen over the last few seasons that anything can happen now and it is important for us to cement our place [in the top four] and keep winning."

David Moyes is currently benefitting from his dealings in the January transfer window, which saw the addition of Nikica Jelavic and Steven Pienaar.

Just three defeats have come since the turn of the year, helping Everton into the FA Cup quarter-finals, where they face a replay against Sunderland, and the Premier League top half.

Having done Arsenal a favour earlier in the month by defeating Spurs, Gibbs warns that win in particular should serve as a warning ahead of Wednesday's clash.

"I saw Everton against Tottenham and they would have obviously been on a high after that. They are a good side and what the manager has done with that squad is quite amazing," he added.

"We know it will be a difficult game but we have the momentum and at the moment we are on a good run so we want to continue that."
