Ozil, Sanchez and Lacazette start: Everton v Arsenal teams

Arsenal have to get back to winning ways today after last week’s defeat to Watford, but a wounded Everton at Goodison Park is not the easiest way to do that.

Can we take advantage of their poor form? These are today’s official line-ups.

Everton: Pickford; Kenny, Williams, Keane, Jagielka, Baines; Vlasic, Gueye; Rooney, Sigurdsson, Calvert-Lewin

Subs: Robles, Mirallas, Martina, Niasse, Klaassen, Davies, Lookman

Arsenal: Cech, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal, Bellerin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Kolasinac, Alexis, Ozil, Lacazette

Subs: Macey, Holding, Wilshere, Coquelin, Iwobi, Walcott, Giroud

Let’s give them a good rollicking. Up the Arse!

Ox in the Box

That looks like our strongest team we could put on the pitch, Cazorla aside.


I’d agree if it was Wilshere and not Ramsey


I’d say Wilshere for Xhaka


Wilshere and Ramsey!?? Do you plan to start watching soccer tomorrow?


Depends on how Ozil and Sanchez feel really if both are up for it and play as we know they are capable we should win BUT if not Ozil in particular becomes a defensive liability ! For pity’s sake give Laccazette some SERVICE! !!

sixteen swans

About as good a starting eleven as we could have put out.

Even the bench doesn’t look all that bad.


Feeling a 12-0 today plz*

*to us.


I’d be surprised if this one ended 0-0
Everton played a full strength team Thursday, fancy us for a flurry of late goals


No they didn’t they left shrek out for a start that jug eared scouse ogre always saves his best performances for us !!!


Nick, you called it.


Sigurdsson started on the bench as well – played 30 minutes

Mancunian Gooner

Best team on. Hopefully best result aswell come on you gooners

Sourish Ghosh

Wilshere for Xhaka – and that’d be our strongest lineup!


Totally different type of players. Xhaka was bad against Watford but at his best provided plenty of creativity. Hoping however that Jack can play some part.

Heavenly Chapecoense

Time to dump Xhaka so that he learns his lessons..


Strong team.. Good Enough team to beat Everton.. #COYG

Nordin Bin Hassan

Im gonna already pee in my pants!
If they deliber the goods, I think Im going over the edge. And not only pee will be the end product.


Go ahead and sit the next few plays out champ


Big show of faith in ozil by aw. Time for him to repay


Why Wenger would be praised for showing faith in one of our best players?


Repay what? Our most creative player should always be first choice if fit

Cliff Bastin

Part of me dreams of the regular 7-0 or 6-0 demolitions we have them. The other part is afraid of a Rooney dive.

Cliff Bastin

Used to give them*


Rooney dive incoming. You read it here first.

He\'s got no hair but we don\'t care...

Xhaka again. Hooray!!!!!…sigh


do the arsenal media team get the team sheet with positions or just a list of names? I know its a knit pick but that team should be playing 352 rather than 3421 they have shown it as. Regardless I hope Ozil Alexis Lacazette is as good as we hope it is, otherwise the jack and olli option is on the bench. Baring injuries I’d like Iwobi to get a sub on late for Ozil/Alexis whomever wasnt taken off for jack. Tough game today, Everton are a good team on paper and are shite on the pitch. are we going… Read more »

Lord Bendnter

Good strong lineup, we should win this
… what I thought before the Watford game too


What is Xhaka doing in the starting line-up?


Playing in midfield.


Playing is a bit of an over-statement


Agree his overall play has been poor and his standing still watching Cleverly run on to strike home a loose ball last week was criminal!


Providing creativity as he usual does.


Another player that has something on wenger and so will never be dropped


No reason to drop him

Obvious Pete

This is the strongest team.

Mr Wood

Been waiting for Lacazette, Ozil and Sanchez to start a match together, let’s hope the reality lives up to the dream.

Man Manny

That line-up should deliver a minimum of 3 points. COYG!

Man Manny

That should do nicely. If we get an early goal, it could go really pear shaped for them – such is their confidence level right now.


Hope that Xhaka is finsished with his dipped form – strong looking team against a team that is struggling – get stuck in – COYG


Apparently, he isn’t. Why the fuck is he so slow?


He was clearly fouled


I can confirmed Xhaka is slower than the HFB. His speed is appalling.


I can confirm this is a contest between two AWFUL teams. Poor Laca, must be asking himself where the f… he’s ended up…


I think we’ve actually played well bar Xhaka… I’ve been happy with the speed we’re moving the ball and we should have scored 4 1st half


Xhaka was excellent

Making Arsenal Great Again

What game are you watching? I’m sure it’s not the one the rest of us are. Put down the crack pipe and enjoy what’s been a great game so far

I’d say we’ve been good going forward. The major issue at the moment is that midfield two: unbalanced and flimsy. At the moment I’d even rather see Coquelin in there simply because he can tackle and will do something to protect the back four.

Reckon there are more goals to come in this one.


“more goals”… you meant plenty, didn’t you ? 🙂

He\'s got no hair but we don\'t care...

How long before the manager continues to wind up our record signing by taking him off AGAIN and putting Giroud on?
Take off either one of the players desperate to leave.


Yes take off a player who is helping to destroy Everton

He\'s got no hair but we don\'t care...

Wow, I mean I knew I’d be right about him pissing off Laca by taking him off but I didn’t expect the manager to dump on him even further by taking him off for a midfielder when we’re 3-1 up. Genius.
