Arsenal take on Everton in the Premier League at the Emirates tonight. The game doesn’t mean a lot for the Gunners, but a win will put us level on points with the Toffees.

Mikel Arteta has claimed that he is only focusing on the game tonight, but he will surely have an eye on next week’s game against Villarreal.

The clash against Unai Emery’s men is our biggest game of the season. That game should be our priority, but building momentum is important as well, and a win against Everton tonight could help the players massively.

Arteta makes five changes

After fielding a a fairly weak side against Fulham last weekend, Arteta is expected to bring a few of his big guns back. Sadly, both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are ruled out of the game.

Martin Odegaard has a chance of returning, but starting him would be a foolish move. He will likely get a spot on the bench, and hopefully, he will stay there wrapped in cotton wool ahead of our big game next week.

In goal, Bernd Leno replaces Maty Ryan after sitting out last week. Calum Chambers and Pablo Mari come in for Hector Bellerin and Gabriel Magalhaes as well, while Rob Holding and Granit Xhaka keep their places.

Thomas Partey will likely replace Mohamed Elneny in the middle of the park. The Ghanaian is expected to start alongside Dani Ceballos, who has looked a lot better recently.

The trio behind the striker is expected to be the same as last week.

Gabriel Martinelli is set to start on the left with Emile Smith Rowe starting in attacking midfield and Bukayo Saka out on the right flank. If they click, they can hurt Everton, or any other side for that matter.

With Auba and Laca both out, Eddie Nketiah is expected to get the nod up front. The young Englishman scored late last weekend to rescue a point, and although many fans would prefer Martinelli or Folarin Balogun, the 21-year-old will likely be the one to start.
