Arsenal face Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday in the Premier League, as they continue to push for a top-four finish.

Thanks to various different fixture complications, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have already played their 32nd games of the Premier League season. As a result, Spurs sit one point ahead of the Gunners and Chelsea are only behind on goal difference, but they’ve both played a game more.

Arsenal now have the chance to retake the lead among the top four contenders and move back into third with a win over Everton. Admittedly, a draw would also be enough to achieve that goal. However, it would also certainly give a lot of encouragement to Tottenham, who would only be behind on goals scored in that scenario.

Let’s have a look at the team news in each position and our predicted Arsenal lineup for Sunday’s fixture.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang dropped out of the starting eleven against Newcastle after having a temperature for the prior couple of days. Nonetheless, he came off the bench and had a big impact with an assist and a few good runs, so it was clearly nothing too serious.

As a result, we expect him to return alongside Alexandre Lacazette in the starting eleven. The two were working well together in the previous matches against Manchester United and Rennes, particularly with Mesut Özil behind them. The 30-year-old will complete the forward trio.

Alex Iwobi, Denis Suarez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are having to be patient at the moment. Unfortunately for them, Unai Emery’s current preferred system doesn’t utilise wingers, as he gets width from the wing-backs. As a result, they’ll have to settle for making an impact from the bench again.
