Arsenal posted their usual pre-match team news update on Saturday, with a few new bits of information to go over, particularly with Özil, Torreira, Bellerin and Sokratis.

As we know, Özil missed the trip to Olympiacos for personal reasons. He’s back available for selection this weekend though. The same goes for Torreira, who missed the trip to Greece with an illness.

Bellerin also didn’t travel for the Europa League match as a precaution, with a ‘tight left groin’. Arsenal are assessing him ahead of the Everton game. Sokratis is also a doubt with a right knee injury.

As a result, we could well see Ainsley Maitland-Niles making a return at right-back. Cedric Soares still won’t return to full training until the end of the month.

Kieran Tierney appears to be back in full training, which is good news. He still probably won’t feature for a few more weeks though. Calum Chambers is out long term.
