CONFIRMED – Arsenal Team Update for Everton Game

Arsene Wenger ArsenalEverton drew their first game away from home against promoted side Leicester in their first fixture and will look to kick off their home campaign with a win against Gunners.

The Toffees did dismantle Arsenal at Goodison last season but can they repeat that feat again on Saturday?

Arsenal are going to make a few changes to their lineup that played against Besiktas at the weekend with captain Mikel Arteta certainly going out with injury.

Arsene Wenger has provided the updated team news for the game against Everton.

Speaking about the former Evertonian Mikel Arteta, Wenger claimed:

“We just have Mikel Arteta who is out for sure from the Everton game. Everybody else we have to check this morning, but we have no major [new] problems apart from him compared to Besiktas.”

So the skipper is out but will vice captain Per Mertesacker feature or not?

Wenger did claim that trio of Mertesacker, Ozil and Podolski got the extended break after the World Cup and were targeted for return against Everton. However, all of them will not feature mainly in the starting XI as Wenger stated:

“I will check of course today and tomorrow to see if they will be available for selection. That is a target I fixed to them to prepare to be ready for selection against Everton.”

“Will I use the three? Certainly not because they lack competition but they might be included for Saturday.”

Can Arsenal take revenge against Everton this weekend? we shall see.

    Wenger should get world class strikers if he is to compete in the big four race other wise the likes of giroud and sanogo are classless prayers.

      Giroud is one of the worst & lazy striker I have seen in recent years, Mr Wenger pls sign world class striker to compete in premier league.

    if wenger cannot buy world classic striker,dm and cd pls,he shoul quit the emirate.we are tired of uncompeting with other big clubs both europe and england.arsenal is only club among some clubs in europe considered to be big clubs that have not won champions league.this is very bad for a big club like,if wenger is not ready to buy aforementioned players,let him leave emirate for a new classic coach who can handle the team.

    arsene wenger pls sign world class striker if you want be among 1st-4th clubs. Because lack of quality striker is killing the club.

    Imo, Wenger should be looking to sell Giroud or swap him for some better legs out there, like Cavani. O! Gosh! Am dumbed to hear that liverpool have signed Mario 4 as low as 16mil, what a hell of hope that beast would ve created in our lineup. It wasn’t to be, so we move on. Wasting tym wit Giroud would mean igniting the lid to end of ur career mr.wenger. So I suggest u be swift enough to catchup with may be Cavani or Reus b4 d deadline date or ve ur mind madeup to use sanchez as cf while ur boy sit it out on d bench more. Addressing this stricker issue is so much an urgency as getting a DM as well as sorting our injury problems. Aah! Season barely started and almost 4 players are already out! Kosy not 2 fit, arteta out, sanogo out, gibs out, ospina out! So will solve this problem???
