Team News

  • David Moyes has Marouane Fellaini back from suspension, and the big Belgian international will go straight back into the starting eleven.
  • Naismith will hope to retain his spot in the team after scoring Everton's only goal against Norwich at the weekend, but Bryan Oviedo, who set the goal up, may be preferred.
  • Kevin Mirallas, Darron Gibson, Victor Anichebe and Seamus Coleman are all rated as doubtful for the game after missing the Norwich clash and could be included in the starting team.
  • Jack Wilshere will be back in the Arsenal starting lineup after being rested for the draw with Aston Villa at the weekend.
  • Arsene Wenger looks set to be without Theo Walcott once again, so Aaron Ramsey, Gervinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will all be in contention to play on the right.
  • A second game in 5 days may come too soon for Kieran Gibbs, who has just returned from injury, but Wenger will probably be reluctant to play Vermaelen at left-back so may push Gibbs to start.

Prediction

  • Everton have started to fall off the pace somewhat at the top of the Premier League table, having won only 1 of their last 7 matches, though they are still fifth and ahead of today's opponents Arsenal, and will be pleased with their started to the season.
  • Arsenal looked to have got back on track after their 5-2 thrashing of Tottenham last week, but stumbled to another dour goalless draw - their third of the season in just 13 games - and will need to improve if they are to get a result a Goodison Park.
  • However, the Gunners have a fantastic record against Everton, in particular away from home, having scored 14 goals in their last 5 visits to the blue half of Merseyside, winning on four occasions. David Moyes has got Everton playing really well, but they will have had the wind taken out of them by Norwich's last gasp equaliser at the weekend and Arsenal should pick up another win at Goodison.

  • @DonnyVantage Did't prove to be a good bet mate. Unlucky as I thought Jelavic would.

  • I'm backing Giroud and Jelavic to score, for 7 to 1. Thoughts?

  • Arsenal were clearly resting against villa so you can expect to see arsenals best 11 take the field and put right not scoring last time out. Everton have fellanni back who will terrorise the arsenal defense. Evertons defense also seems to give away too many chances for me. Should be a cracking game and the Most obvious for both teams to score!
