Everton prepare for crunch Arsenal clash with piggy back training session

Sean Dyche has been preparing his Everton players for their crunch Premier League clash against Arsenal by making sure their piggy-backing skills are in top condition.

The Toffees took part in a rather usual session before their trip to the Emirates with players paired up as Dyche watched on with a big grin on his face.

Alex Iwobi and James Tarkowski were among those made to hold their team-mate in the air until getting a signal from the boss, when they would promptly swap positions.

One fan then wrote on Twitter: "I'll be watching the next game closely when they concede a free kick at the edge of the box. Interesting wall incoming."

A second posted: "This must be the future evolution of football where players jump on their opponents to pass, dribble and score."

A rival hit back with: "It won't save them from losing to Arsenal in today's match."

If nothing else, the Sky Sports clip showed a fine camaraderie between the playing squad as they look to secure survival, with Dyche's men a point from safety.

Having picked up two wins from their four league fixtures since the arrival of the former Burnley boss, the first was a huge dent in Arsenal's title charge.

Mikel Arteta's men have since clawed back a two-point lead at the top before their game in hand on Wednesday evening (March 1) with the Spaniard feeling confident.

He said: "It’s a case of doing things better than we did when we played them a few weeks ago and earning the right to win the game. Hopefully tomorrow we will play much better than we did that day.

"It’s like with any opponent. We showed [the players] what they do, what they are about, what we expect to do to try to beat them and nothing different.

"With Sean [Dyche], it’s quite clear what he’s done and where the success they’ve had is coming from. Tomorrow we’ll prepare the game in an appropriate and similar way."
