Arsenal vs Everton XI: Predicted Lineups and team news for Premier League 2022-23

Arsenal will finally play their game in hand on Wednesday when they host Everton at the Emirates.

The Gunners have been playing catch-up with title rivals Manchester City ever since this fixture was initially postponed back in September following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, but there is finally time to get this game played and Arsenal will hope to restore their five-point lead at the top of the table.

They’re up against an Everton side who have fallen back into the relegation zone after losing to Aston Villa, but Sean Dyche’s side are the only team outside of Manchester to have won a league game against Arsenal this season, having done so just a few weeks ago in the boss’ first game in charge.

Arsenal team news

Thomas Partey was back on the bench last time out and may well get a start here, leaving just Gabriel Jesus and Mohamed Elneny as confirmed absentees.

Striker Eddie Nketiah was dropped for the win over Leicester and there have been mixed reports about his fitness, but he is expected to be part of the squad here, although Leandro Trossard’s impressive showing in his place could keep him on the bench.

Arsenal predicted lineup vs Everton

(4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Trossard.

Both Dominic Calvert-Lewin and James Garner are approaching returns but are not expected to make it back in time for this one.
