Arsenal vs Everton, Kick-Off: 23rd September 08:30 PM (IST)

Unai Emery’s side host Everton at the Emirates in the Premier League on Sunday. This match is set to serve as a platform for the return of Theo Walcott to his boyhood club after his summer transfer to Merseyside.

The Gunners come in fine form, winning their last 4 matches including their Europa League tie against Vorskla Poltava. On the other hand, the Toffees arrive after a desolate 3-1 defeat against West Ham United.

Team News

Arsenal: Unai Emery made 8 changes for the 4-2 victory over Vorskla Poltava in the Europa League, and the rested will likely be back in the lineup. Lucas Torreria took a knock to the knee in the game but should be available for selection.

Everton: Andre Gomes and Seamus Coleman remain sidelined due to injury while Yerry Mina could make his debut after a week of training after his foot injury. Everton will also be encouraged by the return of joint top-scorer Richarlison after he completed a 3 game ban. 

Predicted Line-ups

Arsenal: Cech | Bellerin, Sokratis, Mustafi, Monreal | Xhaka, Torreira, Ramsey, Ozil, Aubameyang | Lacazette

Everton: Pickford | Kenny, Mina, Zouma, Digne | Gueye, Davies, Walcott, Sigurdsson, Bernard | Richarlison

Key Players

Arsenal: Pierre Emerick Aubameyang returns to the Premier League after scoring a wonderful brace against Vorskla in the UEFA Europa League. The attacker will hope he can replicate his performance against Everton.

Newcastle: Richarlison has proven to be worth the £50m transfer fee as he made a magnificent start to the Premier League. Whether the Brazilian is scoring goals himself or assisting his teammates, he will be essential for the Toffees.

Score Prediction

Arsenal 3 – 1 Everton: The Gunners are undefeated in 24 home matches against Everton in all competitions and will probably extend the streak. It should be a comfortable fifth successive win for Unai Emery’s side.
