Arsenal XI vs Everton: Confirmed team news, predicted lineup and injuries today

Mikel Arteta could name same team for fifth game in a row



Arsenal are second in the Premier League and two points off leaders Manchester City, who host West Ham this afternoon. The Gunners need to beat Everton and hope City drop points to win their first title in 20 years.


Arteta has opted for the same XI in the last four league games and could do so again this weekend.

Bukayo Saka limped off during the win at Old Trafford last time out after aggravating a cut on his leg he picked up against Bournemouth earlier this month.

The winger is understood to be recovering well, though, and is expected to play against Everton.

One change Arteta could make is in midfield, given Thomas Partey struggled in the 1-0 win over Manchester United. Jorginho, who signed a new contract with Arsenal earlier this month, could come in for the Ghana international.

Leandro Trossard scored the winner at Old Trafford and will hope to keep his place on the left flank, although Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus are alternative options.

Predicted Arsenal XI (4-3-3): Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Odegaard, Partey, Rice; Saka, Havertz, Trossard
