Team News

Everton star man Calvert-Lewin continues to recover from his thigh problem, but Tom Davies will miss out and Salomon Rondon sustained a hamstring injury in the Merseyside derby.

Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina have outside chances of making the squad on Monday, and Mason Holgate's return from suspension will give Benitez a much-needed defensive boost.

Either ex-Arsenal man Alex Iwobi or Anthony Gordon should benefit from Rondon's absence this week, and the latter could be given the nod after being brought on for the Venezuelan in midweek.
Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Coleman, Godfrey, Keane, Digne; Townsend, Doucoure, Allan, Gordon; Gray; Richarlison

As for Arsenal, Bukayo Saka was fit enough to come off the bench at Old Trafford, but long-term victims Sead Kolasinac and Granit Xhaka remain on the sidelines and Emile Smith Rowe is a slight doubt with discomfort.

Second-choice goalkeeper Bernd Leno is also nursing a groin strain but was not going to displace Ramsdale either way, and Nuno Tavares will aim to keep Kieran Tierney out of the team once more.

Saka's expected return to the first XI could spell trouble for Gabriel Martinelli, with Arteta highly unlikely to drop Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang despite his lack of ruthlessness recently.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tavares; Partey, Lokonga; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang

Prediction: Everton 0-1 Arsenal
