EVE vs ARS Dream11 Team Prediction: Arsenal makes the trip to Merseyside as they face Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League. After a poor run of form, it felt like Carlo Ancelotti’s men was headed for more disappointment as they faced Chelsea, Leicester City and Arsenal in back-to-back fixtures. However, they have done very well to get 6 points out of 6 against Chelsea and Leicester City and will look to make it 9 when they take on lowly Arsenal. The Gunners have failed to record a win in the Premier League in their last 6 games and have just 1 win in their last 9 league games. Arsenal has also picked up a red card in each of their last three games in the Premier League with Nicolas Pepe, Granit Xhaka and Gabriel Magalhaes all receiving their marching orders. However, the good news is that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ended his goal-scoring drought and Mikel Arteta will hope that they can build on that.

EVE vs ARS Prediction, Team News, Starting XI
A) Everton Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Everton has some injury woes with James Rodriguez, Lucas Digne, Fabian Delph and now Allan joining the treatment table.
Doubtful: Seamus Coleman is close to full fitness but is unlikely to be risked for this fixture.
Expected changes: Robin Olsen started over Jordan Pickford and kept a clean sheet which should be rewarded with another start. Allan’s absence means that Ancelotti might shift to a 3-man defence of Yerry Mina, Michael Keane and Ben Godfrey, seeing Mason Holgate and Jonjoe Kenny occupying the flanks. Abdoulaye Doucoure and Andre Gomes are likely to start in central midfield with Doucoure playing a more defensive role. Former Arsenal man, Alex Iwobi, will relish this opportunity like Theo Walcott did in midweek as he starts alongside Richarlison and the in-form Dominic Calvert-Lewin upfront.
Everton Starting XI (probable):
Robin Olsen (GK)
B) Arsenal Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Gabriel Martinelli and Thomas Partey will miss the game through injuries with Gabriel Magalhaes and Granit Xhaka are suspended.
Doubtful: Reiss Nelson is the only doubt for the EVE vs ARS Dream11 Prediction.
Expected changes: Bernd Leno will continue to start in goal as usual, with David Luiz returning to the lineup in the absence of Gabriel Magalhaes, in a 3-man defence with Rob Holding and Kieran Tierney on either side of him. Granit Xhaka’s suspension means Mohamed Elneny and Dani Ceballos will play in central midfield and Bukayo Saka’s excellent performance against Southampton will see him start on the left flank. The trio of Nicolas Pepe, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should be recalled for this fixture.
Arsenal Starting XI (probable):
Bernd Leno (GK)
EVE vs ARS Today Match Prediction:
Bookies have pegged this to be a close matchup as Paddy Power and Coral have placed an Arsenal win at 2.40 and a win for the away side at 2.88 and 2.90 respectively. The Gunners were dealt a huge blow as Gabriel Magalhaes, who was one of their best players, received a rather harsh sending off. Everton, on the other hand, will be high on confidence despite their injury concerns after beating Chelsea and Leicester City in a row. The Toffees have also scored 12 goals more than Arsenal but a solid second-half performance by the away side against Southampton might just have been the catalyst for change that Mikel Arteta’s men needed for the EVE vs ARS Today Match Prediction.
EVE vs ARS Dream11, Captain & Differential Picks
Captain Options –
Dominic Calvert-Lewin – Calvert-Lewin has been one of the best strikers in the league this season with 11 goals in 13 starts and is the joint top-scorer as well. He has also created 7 goal-scoring chances and has 23 shots on target as well. He also has an average of one goal every 104 minutes.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – The Arsenal faithful will hope that Aubameyang will have found his goal-scoring form after bagging the equaliser against Southampton. He has created 14 goal-opportunities despite playing out of position for the most part. He is one of the best strikers in the league and Everton will know not to judge him by his recent form.
Richarlison – The Brazilian has 2 goals and 3 assists in the league this season and has created 13 goal-scoring chances. He has completed a mighty 30 successful dribbles and has succeeded in 16 tackles as well. 13 shots on target means that the Arsenal defence will have to work quite hard to keep him at bay.
Differential Picks –
Alexandre Lacazette – Lacazette has been one of the better players in this poor Arsenal side and has scored 3 goals in the league. He has also created 9 goal-scoring chances with 9 shots on target. He has been criticized in terms of missing big opportunities and the Frenchman can not afford to do that against a side like Everton.
Alex Iwobi – Alex Iwobi, in particular, will be looking forward to this game against his former side. He has 2 assists all season and will fill-in for the injured James Rodriguez. Iwobi has created 11 goal-scoring chances in his limited playing chances and has succeeded in 9 dribbles.
Bukayo Saka – Bukayo Saka has been excellent for Arsenal and seems like the only player who is trying hard. He was the creator of Arsenal’s equaliser against Southampton and has created 11 other goal-scoring chances. Saka has also done very well to complete 18 successful dribbles.
