Team news: Saka out, Martinelli in, Timber returns

Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka before a game

Mikel Arteta has been forced to make one change to his side for today’s crucial Premier League game against Everton, with Bukayo Saka missing out.

The winger has picked up a slight muscle injury and will sit this one out with Gabriel Martinelli taking his place, which marks the first time Mikel has been forced to change his line-up in five games.

Meanwhile, there is a welcome return to the bench as Jurrien Timber takes his place amongst the replacements, his first call-up since his ACL injury on the opening weekend.

William Saliba starts for the 38th time in the league this season, as he looks to complete an ever-present campaign. If he completes the full 90 minutes he will become the first outfield player for us to play every minute of a Premier League season. 

Everton meanwhile are unchanged from the side that beat Sheffield United 1-0, but Andre Gomes and Arnaut Danjuma don’t appear among the substitutes as Sean Dyche looks towards next season with the pair set to depart in the summer.

Arsenal: Raya, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu, Partey, Rice, Odegaard, Trossard, Martinelli, Havertz. 
Subs: Ramsdale, Timber, Zinchenko, Kiwior, Jorginho, Vieira, Smith Rowe, Nketiah, Jesus.

Everton: Pickford, Coleman, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Young, Garner, Onana, Gueye, McNeil, Doucoure, Calvert-Lewin.
Subs: Virginia, Crellin, Godfrey, Keane, Warrington, Hunt, Dobbin, Chermiti, Beto.
