Arsenal have plenty of questions to answer following their latest disappointing defeat to Swansea on Tuesday – this time against Everton at the Emirates.
It’s not like the Toffees are in great form, but they enter the fixture with a confident boost from their victory over Leicester City in the last round.
The Gunners might throw new star signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the action, but he will have a late test as he is reportedly suffering with flu.
Time is running out for Arsenal to show their intent for a top four spot. A drop of points here could prove to be very costly.
Arsenal team news
Wenger would be pleased to have new signing Henkrikh Mkhitaryan at his disposal. Star striker Pierre-Emerck Aubameyang’s debut is in doubt, however, as he will have a late evaluation due to reports that he is down with flu. Jack Wilshere is also a doubt for similar reasons.
Danny Welbeck and Santi Cazorla are the only two who will not be on the starting sheet. Welbeck is out with a muscular injury, while Cazorla is a long-term absence.
Everton team news
Former Gunner Theo Walcott will be reunited with his old team-mates after having scored a brace in his previous match for the Toffees.
Everton, however, have been struggling and this is no small part to a number of players missing to long-term injuries. James McCarthy, Leighton Baines, Maarten Skletenberg, and Ramiro Funes Mori are all out on the sidelines for this fixture.
