Everton V Arsenal: Gunners Seek win at Goodison Park

Everton boss, Ronald Koeman has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Tuesday evening’s Premier League fixture with Arsenal.

Everton will face the Gunners at Goodison Park with the same squad that was available for selection against Watford at the weekend.

The only definite absentees are Muhamed Besic and Yannick Bolasie, who are both ruled out with cruciate knee ligament injuries.

Matthew Pennington is back in training but Koeman revealed last week that the young central defender will work with the Under-23s squad initially as he aims to regain his fitness following four months on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

Everton are unbeaten at Goodison Park in the Premier League this season but Ronald Koeman has told his players they must improve after a run of just one win in their last 10 league games.

The Toffees have lost five and drawn four since beating Middlesbrough in mid-September, with the only victory since then coming against West Ham United at Goodison at the end of October.


Arsenal are unbeaten in the league since losing to Liverpool on the opening weekend and have also won three on the spin in the competition – beating Bournemouth (3-1), West Ham United (5-1) and Stoke City (3-1).


The Blues will be out for revenge after first-half goals from Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi gave Arsenal victory at Goodison back in March.


Welbeck opened the scoring on seven minutes by rounding Joel Robles and slotting home after being put through by Alexis Sanchez.


Arsenal academy product Iwobi, making his first Premier League start, then capped the occasion by holding off the threat of Ramiro Funes Mori to complete the scoring three minutes before the break.


Taking charge of Tuesday evening’s match is 41-year-old Durham-based official Mark Clattenburg.

He is yet to oversee an Everton match so far this season, with his last match  featuring the Blues coincidentally being Arsenal’s 2-0 victory at Goodison Park last season.
