Arsenal draw swords with Everton in the Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium. While Everton are in the 8th position on the table, Arsenal are in the 9th position. A win in this game would propel the Gunners to equal points as Everton. Arsenal would then be ahead of Everton because of a better goal difference. The match is slated to begin at 12:30 AM (IST).
Arsenal are coming on the back of a 1-1 draw against Fulham and in the match before that, the Gunners had outclassed Slavia Praha 4-0. Alexandre Lacazette had scored 2 goals, while Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe had scored 1 goal each to script a fabulous win for Arsenal. Because of the win, Mikel Arteta’s team has qualified to the semi-finals of Europa League and will be facing Villareal. Arsenal will also be without any extra added pressure as they have withdrawn their name from the controversial European Super League.
Everton have seen a decline in their form recently. It has been six games since the Toffees tasted success and this will be a huge concern for them. Everton really need to pull up their socks if they need a top-four finish. A loss in this game would bring them down to the 9th position and would make their top-four berth chances even more difficult. They are coming on the back of a draw with Tottenham.
David Luiz and Kieran Tierney will be missing out on this game due to injuries. Alexandre Lacazette too is injured and will miss out.
Abdoulaye Doucoure, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Fabian Delph, Yerry Mina and Bernard will be missing out on this game. Andre Gomes should return and should be in line for selection after recovering from a thigh muscle injury.
