Pressure on Everton’s Ronald Koeman in today’s premier league derby as they face Arsenal by 8:45pm. They are still in 9th place in the table which isn’t bad but they were in the top four in early September and dreaming of Europe but this is a distant dream now.
Arsenal are absolutely flying in the league at the moment and ended Saturday at the top of the league and as you would expect they are playing very attractive football.
Alexis Sanchez has been impressive in the striker role this season and both he and Mesut Ozil are in cracking form at the moment.
Everton have no new injuries but could make changes after a run of one win in 10 Premier League matches.
Ross Barkley, Aaron Lennon and Enner Valencia are among those in contention for recalls.
Gabriel is likely to come into the Arsenal side in the absence of Shkodran Mustafi, who faces three weeks out with a hamstring injury suffered against Stoke on Saturday.
Arsenal will again be without midfielder Aaron Ramsey for the Premier League trip to Everton, with the Wales international set to miss a second game in succession with a hamstring problem. The 25-year-old had played in the club’s nine matches before missing the win over Stoke City and is now set for a new spell out of the team.
