Petr Cech remains out with a calf injury, so David Ospina will continue in goal, while Gabriel may get the nod ahead of Per Mertesacker in central defence. Hector Bellerin, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal should form the rest of the back four.


Mathieu Flamini is ruled out of the trip to Goodison Park after coming off with a slight knock against Barcelona in midweek. Mohamed Elneny impressed at the Nou Camp in any case, and may start alongside Francis Coquelin at the base of midfield in Arsene Wenger’s standard 4-2-3-1 formation.

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil look likely to take two of the advanced midfield positions, with Joel Campbell perhaps getting the nod on the right after being an unused substitute on Wednesday night.


Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi are all options for that starting berth, though. Welbeck could well continue as the lone striker for the Gunners, although the fresher Olivier Giroud also appears a viable option.


Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla and Tomas Rosicky remain out for the Gunners.

Having said this, here is how we expect the boss to lineup his side against Everton.
