Arsenal vs Everton: Preview and Starting Eleven

After a hard fought victory against Huddersfield Town just two days back, we are back in action tonight at the Emirates against Everton.

Everton are enjoying a very decent spell at the moment and after holding Chelsea to a draw at the weekend, they will certainly be looking for at least a point tonight. Last season they gave us a very hard time in this fixture and only Rosicky’s goal in injury time got us a point. So expect a very difficult game.  

As for us, we have given some very dominating and some very frustrating performances in the past few games. If we are to get the maximum points tonight and keep pace with United at the top, we will need another dominating performance from our team.

As for the starting eleven, I am expecting only Koscielny and Arshavin to keep their places from the last game.

Szczesny will return in goal as well as Djourou at the centre back position. On the flanks we will see our best fullbacks, Sagna and Clichy, to return as tonight we cannot take risks.

In the middle too, our most lethal trio of Fabregas, Wilshere and Song will be back.

As for the forwards, with Nasri out, I would prefer Arsahvin to start in his place with Van Persie and Walcott completing the team.

Probable starting XI: Szczesny, Sagna, Djourou, Koscielny, Clichy, Song, Fabregas, Wilshere, Walcott, RVP,Arshavin.

As for the game, I have said before that it won’t be easy, so we will need the right attitude from the start. Possession will be vital along with finishing our chances. We will need to make sure that we aren’t caught on the counter as Everton are very good at it. An early goal for us will make the game easier. However, if they score first, things will become more difficult.

Considering the fact that our first team will be starting, I am expecting a win but still we will need a top performance from them as we cannot drop more points in the Premier League. Another three goals plus a clean sheet will be amazing but I will be content with a win no matter how we get it. And I hope no one else gets injured.

Keep your fingers crossed!! This game will be exciting to the very end.
