EFC Vs AFC: Line-up – Chambers, Mertesacker, Ozil, Alexis, Sanogo, Diaby, Podolski; First Four To Start. The Rest From The Bench.

Arsenal take on Everton at the Goodison Park in Saturday’s evening time kick-off of the Premier League.

The match which the Gunners will be hoping go their favour so as to lift up their teams’ spirit ahead of their Champions league play-offs return leg at the Emirates against Besiktas next week Wednesday after going goalles in the whole 90 minutes in Turkey in the midweek in what many would regard as a not-so-good performance by Arsene Wenger’s men.

Arsenal however, will be boosted by the return and reintegration of their World Cup winning German trio which will all be available for selection against Everton.

Here is my predicted starting line up for Everton Clash…

Wojciech Szczesny will definitely be in goal for Arsenal today against Everton.


Mathieu Debuchy: The Frenchman will start today for Arsenal against Everton as he has had an impressive start to his new Arsenal career so far.

Nacho Monreal: With Kieran Gibbs out with a hamstring problem, Nacho Monreal will once again deputise in defence for Arsenal today against Everton.

Per Mertesacker: The BFG is back! and is another sure bet for the clash at Goodsion Park. Per will take over from youngster Calum Chamber who have had a fine start to his Arsenal career. But the Gunners assistant captain’s vast experience will be needed against an organized Everton side.

Laurent Koscielny: Koscielny will definitely start –  pairing with Mertesacker again at the heart of the Arsenal defense.


Calum Chambers: Yes Chambers! this might come as a shocker to you but Arsene Wenger has many times over the last few weeks said that he see’s the youngster much as a defensive midfielder and may eventually explore that possibility now that Arteta is down injured. Although chances that this will not happen are high but never rule Wenger out in situations like this. The young lad has proved himself so far and may as well get his chance as a defensive midfielder now that Arsenal are about rounding up the signing of a third choice defender.

Aaron Ramsey: The Welshman has continue to improve on his game since last season and look set for another amazing season. He’s had a good pre-season and equally a fine start to the season so he’s a sure bet for Arsenal against Everton.

Santiago Carzola: Carzola should yet again make another appearance for the gunners against Everton, and he is likely to have a good game with Ozil and Ramsey in the Arsenal midfield as the trio have in the past worked well together in the middle of the park as well as going forward.

Mesut Ozil: The German returned from a victorious World cup outing and has been reintegrated into the Arsenal team. It is expected that the prolific midfielder would start today for the Gunners against Everton as Wenger will be looking to give Ozil enough game time ahead of Besiktas clash latter this week.


Alexis Sanchez: Sanchez will start ahead of Podolski in today’s game as Wenger continues to get his new boy enough game time to get him to top gear in the Arsenal team in no time. He will looking to get him into the rhythm with top man Olivier Giroud.

Giroud: There’s been misconception as to who will lead the line for the Gunners this season, with the other option being Yaya Sanogo. But in a match of this magnitude i believe there should be no sentiments as regards who to start as Giroud remains the better option for Arsenal if the Gunners are expected to have an easy run against Everton today.

It is Expected that with this line up the Gunners should comfortably cruise to a 3-1 victory (my guess). going by the team’s current burst of confidence upfront with the return of key player and also coupled with the support from the fans. COYG!!!

What are your guesses?
