Earlier this season the Toffees left the Emirates with a vital point from the 1-1 draw between the two sides in December and will be looking to put in another excellent performance against the London club.

Flamini believes that the match-up will be decided on the midfield battle between the teams and is relishing a typical English cup tie.

"Everton played an amazing game against us at the Emirates," said Flamini. "We have to play them again in the FA Cup and we know it won't be an easy.

"We're talking about Everton but we could easily to talk about every team in England. That's part of the English game. When you want to win a game you have to first of all win the challenge and win the battle in the midfield.”

As well as the FA Cup, the Gunners are currently still challenging for the Premier League title as well as the Champions League, although they face an uphill task coming back from a 2-0 deficit against Bayern Munich.

"The FA Cup is another title, it's another objective," he said. "You know Arsenal has been looking for a title for so long,” added the 29-year-old.

"We're fighting for every single one. I'm talking of course about the Premier League, I'm talking about the Champions League. Even though we know it's not going to be easy but we'll go over there [to Germany], we'll have nothing to lose and we'll give everything.”
