Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Arsenal will travel down to Goodison Park on the 22nd of October to face Everton in the Premier League.
However, Arsenal will be without England striker Danny Welbeck, with reports suggesting he would not be considered for selection for the game at Goodison Park.
Welbeck was substituted against our defeat to Watford last weekend and also didn’t not fixture against Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League.
The England International previously missed five games, including England’s final two World Cup qualifiers, due to a hip problem suffered in the draw at Chelsea in September.
Arsene Wenger’s team travel to an Everton side who have won just two of their last 12 games in all competitions, with manager Ronald Koeman under significant pressure having spent £140m (€156m) in the summer. Former Gunners midfielder Paul Merson expects Arsenal to take full advantage.
He told Sky Sports: “Which Arsenal will turn up? The one we’ve been raving about for a month before Watford? Or the team who turned up at Watford?
“This could be a must-win game for Ronald Koeman on Sunday. You look at Craig Shakespeare’s sacking, and Leicester were always tipped to finish mid-table. Everton were a shoe-in for seventh, at least, and Koeman is under severe pressure. They could be in the bottom three after this.
“I’m going for Arsenal. I know they were beaten at Watford, but Everton are not a team who are going to kick you off the pitch. Arsenal will be more comfortable playing against them. Koeman bought a lot of the same in the summer, and lost Romelu Lukaku. I don’t think it was money well spent.”
