Arsenal vs Everton Team News

Upon the return of Thomas Partey to the Arsenal squad against Leicester after recuperating from a minor thigh issue, the spectators were relieved. Meanwhile, Gabriel Jesus and Mohamed Elneny, who are recovering from knee surgery, are confined to the treatment room.

Eddie Nketiah’s exclusion from the starting eleven was unexpected, amid rumors that he may have suffered an injury. He faces an uphill battle to reclaim his position in the team over Trossard or Martinelli, who despite sustaining a blow to the knee from Wilfred Ndidi while scoring the winning goal against Leicester, completed the entire match.

Despite this, Arteta has recently demonstrated that he is willing to rotate his resources, hence Partey, Nketiah, and Fabio Vieira, who, according to Arteta, is making a strong case for selection, may feature in the unforgiving March schedule.

Everton emerged unscathed from their encounter with Villa. However, Dyche is pessimistic about the chances of Dominic Calvert-Lewin recovering from his latest thigh issue in time to play against Arsenal, who were briefly linked with his signature.

Andros Townsend will require a few additional weeks to recover from his serious knee injury, while Nathan Patterson has encountered a setback in his recovery from a similar ailment and remains absent. James Garner is on the road to recovery from his back problem but will instead play for the Under-21s this week.

Dyche may consider Ellis Simms or Demarai Gray as his primary striker against the league leaders due to Neal Maupay’s ineffective performance. However, Alex Iwobi’s position is expected to be secure as he prepares to face his former team.

Arsenal likely lineup:
Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Trossard

Everton likely lineup:
Pickford; Coleman, Tarkowski, Coady, Mykolenko; Doucoure, Gueye, Onana; Iwobi, Gray, McNeil

Odds:

The odds for the Arsenal vs Everton match are as follows:

Arsenal – 1.30 Draw – 5.25 Everton – 11

Prediction:

Arsenal will have the home advantage, and they’ll be looking to build on their good form in recent weeks. Everton, on the other hand, will be looking for a big response after their disappointing defeat to Villa.

We predict that this match will end in a 3-1 Arsenal favour. Both teams have quality attacking players, but their defences have been vulnerable this season. Saka and Martinelli will both be on the scoresheet, and help to regain the home advantage for the Gunners.
