THE LOWDOWN

EVERTON

  • Goodison Park turned toxic this past Wednesday night as Everton were soundly beaten by fierce rivals Liverpool 1-4 in the Merseyside derby, their third successive defeat in the Premier League and their eighth without a win.
  • Salomon Rondon suffered a hamstring injury against the Reds and probably won’t feature here, which may lead to a rare opportunity for Cenk Tosun although it would be no surprise if boss Rafa Benitez opts to field Richarlison as a lone striker.

ARSENAL

  • Arsenal suffered a second straight loss on their travels last time out and it will have been a tough one to take for Gunners fans, going down 3-2 at the hands of old rivals Man Utd, particularly after taking the lead in the first half.
  • Bukayo Saka began that match from the bench and the likelihood is that the England international will start at Goodison Park, whilst forward Alexandre Lacazette will also be desperate for a chance having also come off the bench at Old Trafford.

THE TEAM NEWS

EVERTON

PREDICTED XI (4-4-1-1): Pickford; Coleman, Godfrey, Keane, Digne; Townsend, Doucoure, Allan, Gordon; Gray; Richarlison

UNAVAILABLE: Calvert-Lewin (Injured), Davies (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Mina (Injured), Rondon (Injured), Gomes (Fitness)

ARSENAL

PREDICTED XI (4-4-1-1): Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Nuno Tavares; Saka, Partey, Maitland-Niles, Smith-Rowe; Lacazette; Aubameyang

UNAVAILABLE: Kolasinac (Injured), Xhaka (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Leno (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Right now, it looks like there is no end in sight to the current misery at Everton. The supporters have lost patience with both the team and the manager, the attacking players are struggling to score goals without Calvert-Lewin and the defence looks mentally shot of all confidence. Arsenal won’t have a better opportunity to claim three points from Goodison Park and the Gunners are expected to respond strongly to their Old Trafford defeat. Mikel Artea has got his side playing good football, creating plenty of chances and in Aaron Ramsdale, have a goalkeeper on top of this game to boot. All the ingredients are there for the visitors to claim three points on the road here, piling further pressure onto Rafa Benitez in the Everton hotseat.

Tip: ARSENAL TO WIN
