Arteta expects Rovers to be a tough test
Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta is expecting a tough game from our beloved Rovers tomorrow and just wants to win the game.
Mikel knows what to expect from fortress Ewood and expects a physical test.
The game is nearly 24 hours away and to be fair, Mikel sounds like he just wants the game over - a good sign for Blackburn Rovers as Rovers look to make home a daunting prospect for visiting teams again.
Last season Rovers only lost 3 at home (ironically one of them against Everton) but that matters not this time as Big Sam's men look to kick on from last season where home form will be key again.
'I just want to get the game won and get the points. That would be a big relief,' Arteta told BBC Radio Merseyside.
'It's going to be tough physically and they're going to put the ball in the box a lot of times during the game.'
'So it's not just about us going there and trying to play good football because offensively they're going to make us defend and suffer.'
