At the time of writing Mikel Arteta has not been officially announced as Arsenal’s new manager but he could well be in the dugout to face one of his former clubs, Everton, this weekend.
The Toffees are also without a manager, although Carlo Ancelotti looks to be favourite to take over at Goodison Park, despite Duncan Ferguson having filled in ably as caretaker.
After winning against Chelsea and drawing at Manchester United last time out, this will be a big test for the Gunners, and they will have to do a lot better than they managed against Manchester City on Sunday.
Hector Bellerin and Dani Ceballos are both doubts for the match due to hamstring injuries, while the likes of Rob Holding (knee), Kieran Tierney (shoulder) and Sead Kolasinac (ankle) are out of contention. Granit Xhaka should, though, be available after recovering from a concussion.
Everton have a long list of injuries to contend with. Fabian Delph (hamstring), Gylfii Sigurdsson and Djibril Sidibe (illness) could return but Lucas Digne (groin) remains a doubt.
Theo Walcott (calf), Andre Gomes (ankle), Morgan Schneiderlin (calf), Cuco Martina (knee) and Jean-Philippe Gbamin (thigh) are all still on the sidelines.
The bookmakers have made Everton slight favourites with Betfair pricing them at 11/8. A draw is 11/4 with Betway while an Arsenal victory is currently 19/10 at Sky Bet.
Predicted Score – 2-2
