Thomas Partey has been named in our starting line-up for today’s trip to Everton, as Mikel Arteta restores the six players he rested at Manchester City last week.
The Ghanaian midfielder has overcome a rib injury that forced him off at half-time at the Etihad Stadium eight days ago, allowing the boss to name the same side that started our last league game - the 3-2 win against Manchester United.
That means Aaron Ramsdale, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Ben White, William Saliba, Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli all return to the starting line-up, with new signing Jorginho named on the bench alongside fellow January signings Leandro Trossard and Jakub Kiwior.
Sean Dyche’s first teamsheet as Everton boss sees him recall Dwight McNeil to the side, having worked with him previously at Burnley.
That is one of two changes to their side that lost 2-0 to West Ham United in Frank Lampard’s last game in charge, with the other seeing Abdoulaye Doucoure replace Yerry Mina in what indicates a possible switch to a back four.
Everton: Pickford, Coleman, Tarkowski, Coady, Mykolenko, Onana, Gueye, Doucoure, Iwobi, McNeil, Calvert-Lewin.
Subs: Begovic, Godfrey, Vinagre, Holgate, Mina, Davies, Gray, Simms, Maupay
Arsenal: Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Partey, Xhaka, Odegaard, Saka, Martinelli, Nketiah.
Subs: Turner, Tierney, Tomiyasu, Holding, Kiwior, Jorginho, Vieira, Trossard, Cozier-Duberry.
