The Gunners have taken 10 points from their last six games while the Toffees have picked up 11.

With just two points and one place separating the two sides in the table, it is likely to be a hotly contested encounter.

Arsenal are showing improvements under Mikel Arteta

Arsenal are unbeaten in 2020 in all competitions having won five and drawn four in their nine games so far.

Arteta’s side broke a their run of four consecutive Premier League draws with a 4-0 thrashing of Newcastle last weekend.

Things certainly seem to be looking up for the Gunners especially with their three clean sheets to add to the good run of results.

Sokratis is an injury concern for Arteta as the defender had to come off in their Europa League clash with Olympiakos due to a knee injury.

After the game, Arteta said: “Sokratis got a twist in his knee and playing in a different position there are different physical demands and he suffered a little in the end.”

Arsenal have no other fresh injury concerns with Kieran Tierney, Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares all still out.

How Arsenal should line-up against Everton

Alexandre Lacazette had been dropped for the Newcastle game in favour of Eddie Nketiah but he came off the bench to get a goal and an assist.

He followed that up with the winning strike in the Europa League against Olympiakos.

The striker has rediscovered a little bit of form and warrants a place in the starting XI.

The three other attacking players behind him pick themselves on current form with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil and Nicolas Pepe all scoring against Newcastle.

Pepe also added two assists in a fine performance at the Emirates.

Alexandre Lacazette scored the winner for Arsenal in their Europa League match

Arteta has rotated his midfield pairing often this season with Matteo Guendouzi, Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira and Dani Ceballos to choose from.

Guendouzi has been a bright spark for the Gunners this season, particularly when they were under-performing while Unai Emery was in charge.

Xhaka has been brought back in from the cold by Arteta and the north London club look like a better side with him in the starting XI.

Bukayo Saka has been an able deputy at left-back while Arsenal deal with injury problems with the defence.

David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi are their best options at centre-back at the moment.

Everton themselves are in good form under Carlo Ancelotti and have only lost one league game during the early part of his tenure.

Their next run of four games will be a test, though, as they face Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.

They could make a surprise charge for the top four as they are just five points behind Chelsea and their next few games will either make or break their chances.

Fortunately, Ancelotti has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the match with the Gunners at the Emirates.

How Everton should look…


How Everton should line-up to face Arsenal

Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are a no-brainer pick for the front two for Ancelotti as they have 20 Premier League goals between them this season.

In his pre-match press conference, the Everton boss said: “Bernard is okay, but I’m not sure Theo Walcott will play against Arsenal.”

Assuming Walcott is out for Sunday’s game then Alex Iwobi would be an able deputy on the right hand side.

Andre Gomes has made a remarkable recovery from injury

Andre Gomes should go straight back into the midfield alongside Gylfi Siguardsson following his remarkable recovery from a serious ankle fracture dislocation.

The defence picks itself with Lucas Digne, Michael Keane, Yerry Mina and Seamus Coleman all the best available.

Jordan Pickford’s place has come into question in recent weeks due to some inconsistent form but he is still the top goalkeeper at Everton for now.
