After having managed to get an impressive start to their Europa League campaign, Arsenal will now look to shift their focus to the Premier League this weekend.
Going into the next few fixtures after the 4-2 victory against Vorskla should give them confidence as they face a tricky test of Everton at Emirates. Although the Mersey side team are coming off a loss against West Ham United the Toffees have been impressive in patches this season.
Everton definitely wouldn’t be a simple team to beat but Arsenal have managed to win each of their last three games with relative ease and they would be hoping for something of same against Everton too.
Emery is still without the likes of Laurent Koscielny and Sead Kolasinac who have been long-term absentees for the club. Shkodran Mustafi and Hector Bellerin who didn’t feature in the 4-2 victory would be fresh to start this game against Everton.
They would partner with Sokratis who would feature in his third game in a span of eight days. And due to the lack of options, Nacho Monreal would be featuring at the left back position.
Granit Xhaka who provided a new dimension to this Arsenal side would be crucial in this game. Mattéo Guendouzi who came off the bench in the mid-week would likely be starting.
Aaron Ramsey who was in a free-floating No.10 role against Newcastle United would be returning to his position. Mesut Ozil and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang would be deployed on the wings by Emery. Aubameyang who scored a brace in the mid-week could be vital for Arsenal against Everton.
Alexandre Lacazette would be spearheading Arsenal’s attack after being on the bench against Vorskla. Lacazette and Aubameyang would be looking to exploit the inexperience of Mason Holgate and Jonjoe Kenny in the right side of Everton’s defence
