Arsenal will be aiming to get back to winning ways after their setback against Manchester United midweek when they face Everton on Monday at Goodison Park. The Gunners are currently sitting 5th in the table, competing for a top 4 spot in the Premier League. After a run of impressive games, defeats against Liverpool and Manchester United have been a reality check for Mikel Arteta as there are loads of improvement left in this Arsenal squad. Arteta will be hoping for his players to bounce back in the same way they did against Newcastle as 3 points are up for grab again on Monday.
Predicted Arsenal Lineup Vs Everton
Aaron Ramsdale will continue between the sticks hoping to keep up his brilliant form. With Leno out injured, Arthur Okonkwo will presumably keep his place on the bench again.
The duo of Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes has been solid for the Gunners till now, as Arteta will expect them to continue the same way and keep it tight at the back. Takehiro Tomiyasu will keep his place in the right full-back position, but Kieran Tierney might get the nod ahead of Nuno Taveres this time around.
The injury to Granit Xhaka has been a big blow to Arsenal as they continue to miss the services of the midfielder. Albert Sambi Lokonga is expected to come back into the starting XI, replacing Elneny as he has been the Gunner’s best performing midfielder at the moment. Thomas Partey should keep his place in the middle of the park as Arteta will expect a much better performance from the Ghanaian this time around.
Gabriel Martinelli’s brilliant form must be rewarded with another start by Arteta as he has scored and assisted in his last two starts for the club. Emile Smith-Rowe and Bukayo Saka will hope to continue their brilliant form and step up again if Arsenal are going to achieve anything this season. Martin Odegaard is expected to miss out, but he will play a vital role from the bench in the later stages of the game.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will lead the line as he will expect to turn around his poor goalscoring form at the Goodison on Monday. The striker has been criticized for his lack of goals upfront this season but is expected to be given another chance. Alexandre Lacazette will be on the bench providing cover for the forward positions.
