Everton will welcome Arsenal to Merseyside on Saturday evening in the 14th Round of the Premier League season.
Stadium: Goodison Park.
- Everton have secured back-to-back Premier League wins
- The Toffees have failed to score in only one of their last ten home matches in all competitions.
- Arsenal have ended with ten men in their last two Premier League games
- The Gunners are yet to win a league game in six tries.
- They have not scored more than a single goal in their last nine PL games
After picking up just one win in November, Everton have picked two wins on the bounce and are unbeaten in December (Win 2, Draw 1).
The Toffees have now climbed up to fifth in the standings following their recent turn of form. They head into this tie on the back of an impressive win over fellow top-four hopefuls Leicester City on Wednesday.
They will be looking to make it three wins on the bounce in the league for the second time this season after achieving the same feat in the opening weeks of the season
Robin Olsen; Mason Holgate, Yeri Mina, Michael Keane, Ben Godfrey; Gylfi Sigurdsson, Andre Gomes, Abdoulaye Doucoure; Alex Iwobi, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.
Allan limped off in Everton’s mid-week win over Leicester with a muscle injury, offering Andre Gomes the chance to come back into the side.
Under pressure, Mikel Arteta will be looking for his first win in six games in the Premier League. The Gunners boss has struggled with discipline issues in recent times in his squad but will be hoping he ends this game with all eleven players on the team.
The Gunners have made their worst start to a season after 13 games since 1974-75 and are already nine points adrift of their hosts in 5th place.
Bernd Leno; Rob Holding, David Luiz, Tierney; Maitland-Niles, Mohamed Elneny, Dani Ceballos, Saka; Nicolas Pepe, Alexandre Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Granit Xhaka and Gabriel Magalhaes are unavailable for Arteta through suspension meaning that Rob Holding returns to the starting IX.
