After starting the campaign with consecutive defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea, the Gunners have won four matches in a row in all competitions. Everton are three points and three places back after a mixed start to life under Portuguese boss Marco Silva. Last weekend’s 3-1 home loss to West Ham was a big blow, and the Merseysiders couldn’t find a way to beat Huddersfield or Bournemouth in their previous two fixtures, either. They’re thankful, then, for their early win over Southampton and opening day draw at impressive Wolves. It means the points have kept coming and their Hammers blow is Everton’s only defeat. But they’ll need a sharp improvement to come away from the Emirates with anything on Sunday.

Arsenal v Everton Team news

Sead Kolasinac, Laurent Koscielny, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Carl Jenkinson remain long-term absentees for Unai Emery’s team.

Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be assessed after picking up an ankle knock in their Europa League win. Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Petr Cech and Alexandre Lacazette are all likely to feature after being rested in midweek.

With Aubameyang performing well through the middle on Thursday, it will be interesting whether Emery will move him back out to the left of the front three or give him a chance in his preferred position.

Yerry Mina could be in line for a debut after returning to training this week although Seamus Coleman, Michael Keane, James McCarthy, and Phil Jagielka are still sidelined through injury.

Having signed for big money from Barcelona, Mina will be under pressure to hit the ground running when he does return to fitness and take up a place in the heart of the defence.

The most notable inclusion to the team and one Everton fans will be relieved about is the return of Richarlison from suspension. With three goals in his two games for Everton, Richarlison was red-hot at the beginning of the season. The Brazilian made his debut for his national side and will be aiming to carry on where he left off.

With the Toffees suffering to an early season slump, his flamboyance and vigour might inspire Everton upon his return to better results.

Stat Attack

  • All 10 goals scored by Arsenal in the Premier League this season have come from different players showing that the Gunners’ offensive play can be unpredictable and complex.
  • The Gunners have failed to keep a clean sheet in their opening five games of a top-flight season for the first time since 1988-89. They conceded in each of their first eight games during that season.
  • Everton have conceded five goals from set pieces this season, the most in the division after five matches.
  • Theo Walcott has scored 56 times in all competitions at the Emirates Stadium, second only to Robin van Persie.

Likely line-ups

Arsenal: Cech, Monreal, Sokratis, Mustafi, Bellerin, Xhaka, Torreira, Ramsey, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette

Everton: Pickford, Kenny, Holgate, Zouma, Digne, Gueye, Bernard, Sigurdsson, Walcott, Richarlison, Tosun

Arsenal v Everton betting tips

The Toffees are yet to keep a clean sheet in six games in all competitions this season, conceding twice in both of their away league games so far.

This run looks set to continue against an Arsenal side that put 10 goals past them in last season’s two league encounters, and who have scored more goals against Everton than against any other team in the Premier League era.

However, Silva’s team should at least feel confident of maintaining their record of scoring in every match so far, with the hosts yet to keep a clean sheet in six games this season.

With neither defence looking convincing, a ‘safe’ bet here could be Over 2.5 total goals. (1.46 with Leovegas) However a bet with more value and a market I like here is Arsenal to win and BTTS. (2.63 with Leovegas) The return of Theo Walcott is an interest to me as well. The amount of times a former player scores against an old team is astounding and the ex Gunner scored 56 times at the Emirates. While he is not likely to do ‘an Adebayor’ on Sunday, Don’t be surprised if he scores. (5.00 With Leovegas) Anytime and is (12.50) to open the scoring at the weekend.
