Arsenal vs Everton Preview | Latest Team News | Expected Line-Ups | Predicted Score
Arsenal take on Everton at the Emirates in the Premier League on Sunday. Here is a preview with the latest team news, line-ups and prediction
Arsenal will be hoping to make it four consecutive Premier League victories in a row when we take on Everton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Unai Emery has recovered from a disappointing start to secure wins over West Ham, Cardiff City and Newcastle United in recent weeks to move us into the top half of the table so we can close-in on the top four with another victory tomorrow.
Arsenal also got off to a winning start in the Europa League after easing to a 4-2 win over Vorskla on Thursday night so we head in to this game in fine form and will have no excuses for not picking up another three points.
We’ll face an Everton side who’ve won just one of their five games so far this campaign and lost 3-1 at home to West ham last time out so this is a good opportunity to register our fifth successive win in all competitions.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is a doubt for the game after picking up an ankle injury against Vorskla in midweek while Lucas Torreira will also be given a late fitness test after limping off with a knee problem.
Sead Kolasinac is edging closer to making his comeback from a knee injury but this game comes too soon so he remains on the sidelines along with Laurent Koscielny, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Carl Jenkinson.
Emery is set to recall a number of first team regulars with the likes of Petr Cech, Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette all expected to return.
Everton welcome Richarlison back from suspension while Yerry Mina could start after recovering from a foot injury. Phil Jagielka should return to training next week but is still unavailable along with Andre Gomes and Seamus Coleman.
Arsenal 2-1 Everton: We are unbeaten in our last 24 home matches against Everton and have scored more Premier League goals against them than any other side so we should be confident tomorrow. It’s usually more difficult after a European game but we played at home on Thursday and some of our key men were rested so hopefully it won’t be much of an issue. Everton have a solid side and we’ll no doubt allow them some chances but with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in good form, I think we’ll have enough firepower to get the three points.
