After a couple of home games, next up is a trip to Goodison Park this weekend, so let’s take a look at our predicted Arsenal lineup vs Everton.

Everton have had a good start to the season, though perhaps not quite as consistent as their initial run of four wins suggested. They subsequently won just one of their next seven Premier League games before beating Chelsea and Leicester City this week.

Arsenal know all about runs of inconsistent form, beating Manchester United one week and losing 3-0 to Aston Villa the next, but they desperately need to put a few results together and make a run up the table now.

Let’s have a look at our predicted Arsenal lineup vs Everton for this weekend.

No real surprises here, as Bernd Leno prepares for another start. Runar Alex Runarsson will make the bench, and it’s hard to see him getting another game until the FA Cup fixtures at the earliest.

Defence

Hector Bellerin is back available again after his yellow-card suspension in midweek. The full-back will presumably retake his spot on the right, with Kieran Tierney and Rob Holding starting as well.

Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers are both returning to fitness and full match sharpness, so we could see them starting to break into the lineup more regularly. The same goes for David Luiz.

It’ll presumably be Luiz coming in for Gabriel Magalhaes as he did after the red card on Wednesday. Gabriel is suspended after that red.

Midfield

Granit Xhaka will miss out once again through suspension, whilst Thomas Partey remains unavailable after his injury. Mohamed Elneny and Dani Ceballos are both and available to feature, however.

Bukayo Saka needs to start, as he’s proving a key member of the side right now. He’ll play that left-central-midfield/left-wing-back role.

That leaves Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Joe Willock, and Emile Smith Rowe on the bench, assuming they make the squad.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finally got back on the scoresheet on Wednesday, and he’ll likely get another start on the left. Alexandre Lacazette may well come back in for Eddie Nketiah, however, as Arteta rotates between the two.

Arteta has options out wide on the right, with Willian, Nicolas Pepe, Reiss Nelson, and even Smith Rowe if he wants to use him there.

Nelson missed out on Wednesday through injury, but he may be available for Everton. The safer bet is Willian right now, as Pepe doesn’t really ever get consecutive starts.
