How Arsenal could lineup versus Everton

Arsenal could be without Ox, Koscielny for Everton game

Arsenal will seek to maintain their slim hopes of making the top four when they host Everton at the Emirates this weekend.

The north London outfit currently trail Liverpool by a single point in the table, and their chances of Champions League qualification depends on the Reds failing to achieve a win over relegated Middlesbrough.

Formation: 3-4-2-1


Petr Cech has been the club's number one role since the start of the campaign, and he is a definite starter against Everton this weekend.

The defence could remain as it was in midweek with Shkodran Mustafi, Rob Holding and Nacho Monreal making up the back three.

With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain still out with a hamstring niggle, Hector Bellerin will continue at right wing-back with Kieran Gibbs in the opposite direction.

Granit Xhaka has stood out in his central midfield position of late, and he could be backed to feature alongside Aaron Ramsey, who has overcome his minor knock.

Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have blossomed as a pair in the new formation, and they could be backed to start behind the main striker this weekend.

Olivier Giroud has started upfront in the last few games, and he could be benched in order to facilitate Danny Welbeck in the lineup.
