Arsenal take on Everton in the Premier League tomorrow, and here’s our predicted line-up.
Goodison Park hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for us in recent years. The last time we won there, Arsene Wenger was still at the club, which means this is a curse we need to break tomorrow.
Mikel Arteta has to get his line-up right.
Predicted Arsenal line-up vs Everton
Mikel Arteta named a strong Arsenal line-up against Manchester United in our 3-1 win a fortnight ago, but we expect him to make two changes tomorrow.
The last time we played Everton at Goodison Park, we lost control of the midfield. We got bullied by a trio of Abdoulaye Doucoure, Andre Onana and Idrissa Gueye, and we have a feeling Sean Dyche will come with a similar approach.
We don’t expect our back five to be any different from our last game – Aaron Ramsdale, Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes and Oleksandr Zinchenko are all expected to start.

This is by no means a dig at Havertz – if this was at the Emirates, we’d back him to start. But, at a ground like Goodison Park, we feel Jorginho is the right man to control the game and progress the ball forward.
Martin Odegaard will start as usual in his number 10 role, with Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli starting out wide.
The one other change we expect is Gabriel Jesus coming in. Eddie Nketiah has been absolutely amazing for us, but we feel Jesus’ quick feet and dribbling will be key to unlocking Everton’s low block.
Predicted Arsenal line-up vs Everton: Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Jorginho, Rice, Odegaard, Martinelli, Saka, Jesus
