Arsenal need to get back to winning ways when we take on Everton at the Emirates this evening.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette unavailable, Mikel Arteta has handed a start to Eddie Nketiah up front with Gabriel Martinelli missing out.

Pablo Mari is recalled to line-up alongside Rob Holding in defence so Gabriel drops to the bench. Calum Chambers replaces Hector Bellerin at right-back and Granit Xhaka continues at left-back in the absence of Kieran Tierney.

Thomas Partey comes back into the Arsenal midfield and is joined by Dani Ceballos while Emile Smith Rowe keeps his place in the side. Martin Odegaard returns to the squad after an ankle injury but has to settle for a place on the bench.

Bukayo Saka starts once again for Arsenal while Nicolas Pepe is given a recall so Willian has to make do with a place among the substitutes this evening.

These are the line-ups:


Leno; Chambers, Holding, Mari, Xhaka; Partey, Ceballos; Saka, Smith Rowe, Pepe; Nketiah.

Subs: Ryan, Bellerin, Cedric, Gabriel, Elneny, Odegaard, Willian, Nelson, Martinelli


Pickford, Coleman, Godfrey, Holgate, Digne, Allan, Andre Gomes, Sigurdsson, Calvert-Lewin, Rodriguez, Richarlison

Subs: Olsen, Mina, Nkounkou, Delph, Davies, Broadhead, Iwobi, King, Bernard.
