Everton are determined to launch a comeback in a bid to awaken their Premier League lives after a 3-0 loss to rivals Manchester United.
They travel to the Emirates to face on-form Arsenal and Martinez is confident his side will pull it off to walk off with maximum despite the nature of how hard the London club has become.
The Gunners defeated Manchester United 3-0 in their last home league match – a result from which Louis van Gaal’s side bounced back with victory by the same scoreline at Goodison Park last time out.
“It was a really bad day for us, one of those results you couldn’t see coming, you couldn’t expect and as a team we want to be back to reach our level,” Everton manager Roberto Martinez said of the United defeat.
“We’ll have to do it in one of the hardest arenas in the league and against one of the hardest opponents. Look at what they’ve achieved in the last few weeks and especially against Bayern Munich, we know we’re going to find a team in their best moment of confidence and belief.
“But in the same manner we need to look at ourselves and react to our performance at the weekend.”
“I wouldn’t say that a team as experienced in those [European] nights as Arsenal would suffer a hangover,” he added. “I don’t expect them to have any negative effect.
“If anything, they get an incredible momentum after that victory and they’ve got a big enough squad to find fresh legs if they need to and Arsene Wenger is the best man in doing that.
“Historically it’s not a fixture we do too well in at our football club so it’s another incentive for us.”
