All the Liverpool supporters will have their eyes on the television when Everton will entertain Arsenal. Liverpool’s Champions League spot is in danger as Arsenal could leapfrog them from the fourth position if both the results of the games goes in their favour. With the top two spots already decided it is between Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool to share the rest of three positions.
Knowing that a win would give Arsenal a chance to sneak into the top four, Everton might be a bit defensive to prevent the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez running riot. No matter what happens, Ronald Koeman’s side are going to finish the season in the seventh position.
Predicted 4-3-3 Everton Lineup Against Arsenal
Joel Robles must have to keep his concentration for another match. The Spaniard is one of the surprise inclusions in the starting lineup since the start of this season.
The veteran pair of Phil Jagielka and Ashley Williams will once again have to do the job for the last time as Everton has the habit of slipping at the final moment.
Leighton Baines might have not the best of the season but he still has the potential to ward off a challenge from the opposition ranks.
Seamus Coleman’s injury has been a boon in disguise for Mason Holgate. The right-back has started most of the matches since Everton’s preferential right back got injured.
Ronald Koeman brought Morgan Schneiderlin from Manchester United in the winter to provide steel to the midfield and the French midfielder has done that duty with utter perfection. He has given a new edge to the holding midfield area and will be at the heart of the midfield to give assurance to the Everton backline.
Idrissa Gueye and Tom Davies will be further ahead in the midfield in a bid to jeopardise Arsenal’s chances. Davies has been a staggering improvement in the Toffees midfield while Gueye has been a tireless engine in the middle of the pitch.
The rise of Ross Barkley has been evident as the England international is the second highest goal scorer of his team. The midfielder will take his position on the right wing.
Kevin Mirallas has been very inconsistent but if he is still one of the promising attacking players in the Everton side. He will operate on the opposite flank.
Romelu Lukaku will spearhead the attack.
