The Gunners chase for a top-four spot continues on Merseyside, with Unai Emery aiming for his team to show more quality away from the Emirates

Arsenal will try to make it three successive Premier League wins when they travel to Goodison Park to face Everton on Sunday.

Unai Emery’s side go into the weekend lying fourth in the standings after a 2-0 win over Newcastle on Monday, and with a game in hand over their rivals are well placed to secure Champions League football next season .

The Gunners, however, face an Everton outfit that has specialised in upsetting the established order in recent weeks, having hit Liverpool’s title challenge by securing a scoreless home draw and Chelsea’s top-four hopes by beating them 2-0.

Arsenal would underestimate their opponents at their peril.

Squads & Team News


Position Everton squad
Goalkeepers Pickford, Stekelenburg
Defenders Coleman, Keane, Digne, Mina, Baines, Kenny, Jagielka, Galloway, Zouma
Midfielders Gueye, Gomes, Lookman, Sigurdsson, Bernard, Davies, McCarthy, Schneiderlin, Baningime
Forwards Richarlison , Tosun, Walcott, Calvert-Lewin

With just Yerry Mina unavilable for Marco Silva, the Everton manager has named an unchanged XI from the one that overcame West Ham last week.

According to the boss, Jordan Pickford is in the right frame of mind to start, despite appearing to be involved in an altercation outside a bar in Sunderland, which appeared on social media earlier this week.

Everton starting XI: Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne; Gueye, Gomes; Richarlison, Sigurdsson, Bernard; Calvert-Lewin

Position Arsenal players
Goalkeepers Cech, Leno, Martinez
Defenders Koscielny, Lichtsteiner, Monreal, Jenkinson, Kolasinac, Medley, Pleguezuelo, Mustafi
Midfielders Elneny, Ramsey, Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Willock
Forwards Ozil, Iwobi, Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang, Nketiah, Suarez, Mkhitaryan

Unai Emery has made two changes to the side that so easily dismantled Newcastle and has been forced to relegate Aaron Ramsey to the substitutes bench.

The Welshman broke the deadlock at the Emirates on Monday night but was withdrawn in the second period through injury.

Ramsey was replaced by Mohamed Elneny, who deputises for the Gunners’ No.8, and starts just his third league game of the campaign.

The second change sees Henrikh Mkhitaryan selected ahead of Alex Iwobi.

Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also on the bench for the second game in a row despite registering an assist when he was introduced against Newcastle.

Arsenal are still missing combative midfielder Lucas Torreira as he faces a ban, while Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin and Danny Welbeck are all long-term problems.

Confirmed Arsenal starting XI: Leno; Mustafi, Sokratis, Monreal; Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi, Eleney, Kolasinac; Ozil (c), Mkhitaryan Lacazette. 

Subs: Cech, Lichtsteiner, Jenkinson, Iwobi, Suarez, Ramsey, Aubameyang

Match Preview


Unai Emery Arsenal

After two years without Champions League football, Arsenal have the scent of Europe’s elite club competition in their nostrils once again.

Under the guidance of Unai Emery, they find themselves well placed to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League and with it the opportunity to once again mingle with the game’s biggest sides.

Five wins in their last six league outings saw them climb as high as third before Tottenham’s midweek win over Crystal Palace, but with a game in hand over their neighbours (a tricky trip to Wolves), they have to be one of the favourites to come through what is currently a four-way logjam in the fight for third and fourth.

Goals from Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette gave them a 2-0 win over Newcastle on Monday, building on a similar success against Manchester United at the Emirates before the international break.

While in the latter years of Arsene Wenger’s spell Arsenal retained a capacity for brilliance, they lost their ability for consistency and that it what the Spaniard is still trying to instil in his side.

“The next challenge away to Everton is a big one as we need to convince people we can also be consistent away,” Emery said.

“We played key matches against Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea. We had this opportunity and won this opportunity because we were being consistent, winning more matches to be closer to them.

“Now, I know it's going to be difficult to stay in the top four. I'm not thinking about that. My first target is to create a big atmosphere. We're creating it little by little.”

Indeed, the Gunners lie 10th in terms of points picked up away from home in the Premier League this season, and while this is partly due to an imbalance in where they have played their fixtures, they have comfortably the poorest road record of any of the ‘Big Six’.

Everton, who recently defeated Chelsea 2-0 at Goodison Park and frustrated Liverpool to a 0-0 draw at the venue, will try to take advantage of that weakness.
