Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Arsenal could line up in Friday's Premier League clash with Everton.
Arsenal will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they welcome Everton to Goodison Park on Friday night.
The Gunners, who are currently ninth in the table, nine points off the top four, will again definitely be without David Luiz and Kieran Tierney for this match through injury, while Alexandre Lacazette is facing a spell on the sidelines with the hamstring injury that he picked up in the 1-1 draw with Fulham last weekend.
Martin Odegaard is expected to overcome a foot problem to be available, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was recently hospitalised with malaria, is still unavailable for selection.
Aubameyang's absence could see Gabriel Martinelli start through the middle, although Eddie Nketiah, who netted the late equaliser against Fulham, is another option in the final third of the field.
Mathew Ryan could keep his spot between the sticks at the expense of Bernd Leno, but head coach Mikel Arteta is expected to make changes from the side that featured last weekend.
Nicolas Pepe and Thomas Partey could both come into the starting XI, with Mohamed Elneny potentially dropping down to the bench.
Hector Bellerin could again be preferred to Calum Chambers at right-back, though, while Rob Holding and Gabriel Magalhaes should retain their spots in the middle of the defence.
Arsenal possible starting lineup: Ryan; Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Xhaka; Thomas, Ceballos; Pepe, Smith Rowe, Saka; Martinelli
