Pepe And Ceballos To Start, Lacazette Misses Out: Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Everton

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta will be determined to keep the momentum after winning consecutive games. They face Everton tomorrow which will be a step up in quality on their most recent opponents.

The Gunners will likely stick with the same backline that kept a clean sheet against Newcastle, with Bukayo Saka keeping his place ahead of the fit-again Sead Kolasinac. Hector Bellerin should come back in for Sokratis after being rested versus Olympiakos midweek.

In midfield, Dani Ceballos’s superb performance last weekend against the Magpies will likely be rewarded with another start alongside Granit Xhaka in central midfield. After missing the match in Greece on Thursday due to personal reasons, Mesut Ozil will likely return to the number 10 role.


There’s more debate to be had over who will start in the front three. Alexandre Lacazette scored versus Olympiakos but his all-round performance still wasn’t great. The Frenchman could be dropped for Nicolas Pepe, with captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang moving centrally.

Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Everton:

Leno, Bellerin, Mustafi, Luiz, Saka, Ceballos, Ozil, Xhaka, Pepe, Aubameyang, Martinelli
