The Premier League is back with a boom as Arsenal takes on Everton at Goodison Park on 17 September 2023. The Toffees are known for showing no mercy on this fixture in their last five outings.
Mikel Arteta, despite being in the limelight, has not won since 2017 in the blue half of Merseyside. He is expected to be looking for a perfect way to overcome his Sean Dyche problem.
This fixture can be taken as a challenge by the team as they have oddly lost on this field to Everton with a 1-0 but managed to win a 4-0 at the Emirates. Further proving how much value this match could hold for the players. Arteta’s team is getting ready for the match with its most dependable players.
Is the team ready with its line-up?
Currently, Kai Havertz is suffering badly with a run of poor form and a lack of confidence. This could be a hard match for the team. The team is believed to go with Jorginho.
The Italian player has been working closely with Mikel Arteta at London Colney for the last few weeks. Martin Odegaard is set in his position, but the team still faces challenges as the spectators question the contributors of each player in the fixture.
The team also faces another big decision. Gabriel Jesus had shown composure and great finishing by ending the game against Manchester United. However, the player is still in need of reviving his knee injury from last season.
Another player, Eddie Nketiah, is reported to have been good and is set to make a comeback on 21st September 2023 for the Champions League group stage match with PSV. In the team’s Everton game last season, Jesus was unavailable, giving light to the Brazilian.
Bukayo Saka and Gabrield Martinelli are to continue. The team does not have many options in terms of players for the premier league games. Leandro Trossard scored a spectacular goal against Belgium, and he will be useful off the bench with Fabio Vieira.
The team’s defense remains the same from their win over Manchester United. Aaron Ramsdale is placed ahead of David Raya’s unavoidable Champions League debut.
Ben White, William Saliba, and Oleksandr Zinchenko are once again united with Gabriel Magalhaes. Magalhaes has spent an amazing break showing his talent with the Brazilian national side, leaving all spectators amazed. His great physical strength and composure could possibly make the game.
Arsenal is in need of calm energy and great composure throughout the game. This lineup is expected to bring it all together and impress the audience with great gameplay.
