Everton vs Arsenal predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League fixture

Arsenal travel to Everton in the Premier League on Saturday as the visitors look to stop Carlo Ancelotti’s men from recording a third straight victory in the division.

Everton will fancy their chances against an out-of-sorts Arsenal, with wins against Chelsea and Leicester in the Toffees’ last two games, which have them pushing for a place in the top four. In fact, the hosts could climb to second in the league with three points here – depending on how Southampton do against Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have had a man sent off in their last two Premier League outings – in the loss to Burnley and draw with Southampton. As such, Mikel Arteta’s team are 15th in the table, with little chance of pushing up – even if they are to take all three points at Goodison Park.

A win would mark their first victory since the beginning of November, and the Gunners will be desperate to make that a reality.

What is the team news?

Arsenal will be without Thomas Partey, long-term absentee Gabriel Martinelli and the suspended Gabriel Magalhaes. Hector Bellerin, meanwhile, should return to the starting line-up after serving a one-match ban. 

Everton left-back Lucas Digne remains on the sidelines, but right-back Seamus Coleman could be back on the bench. James Rodriguez is expected to miss out once again in midfield, as is Allan.

Predicted line-ups

Everton: Pickford; Holgate, Mina, Keane, Godfrey, Kenny; Iwobi, Gomes, Doucoure, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin

Arsenal: Leno; Holding, Luiz, Tierney; Maitland-Niles, Elneny, Ceballos, Saka; Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Odds

Everton: 5/4

Draw: 5/2

Arsenal: 21/10

Prediction

If Arsenal can keep 11 men on the pitch, unlike in their last two league outings, they might finally be able to end their poor domestic run. That said, Everton are in fine form at the moment, with wins over Chelsea and Leicester in their last two games. Everton 1-1 Arsenal.
