Arsenal head to Goodison Park on Sunday as they look to pick up another three points against Everton. The Gunners won 3-1 at home against Manchester United last time out.
Mikel Arteta’s side are joint-second 2nd in the Premier League table after the first four games. They have picked up 10 points and are level with Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and West Ham, with Manchester City top.
Arsenal have a few injury woes to deal with. Defender Gabriel Magalhaes is a doubt for the game after picking up a thigh probelm on international duty with Brazil during the international break and he will need to be assessed.
Jakub Kiwior is ready to step in if ready and has said: “It is going to be a difficult match. It was a difficult match last year and it’s going to be a difficult match this year. It’s an away match and there are no easy matches in this league, but we have to get on the pitch and do what we are prepared to do and win the match.
“Of course there is an excitement. I’m the sort player who always waits for the day of the match, so the day when the match is played is always very important for me.”
The Gunners will be without Thomas Partey, Jurrien Timber and Mohamed Elneny for their trip to Merseyside. The latter has returned to training but this weekend may come too soon.
As for Everton, Seamus Coleman, Dele Alli and Jack Harrison are sidelined. Jarrod Branthwaite, Andre Gomes and Lewis Dobbin are doubtful and will need to be checked on by Sean Dyche over the next couple of days.
On a more positive note for the Toffees, they could have striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin back for the clash against Arsenal. The former Sheffield United man has been out of their past two fixtures with a facial injury but is now back training with his teammates.
Defender Michael Keane is also pushing for a return and could get the nod ahead of Branthwaite again. The centre-back missed their 2-2 draw away at Sheffield United in their latest match with a knock.
Out: Partey, Timber, Elneny, Coleman, Alli, Harrison
Doubts: Gabriel, Gomes, Dobbin
