Arsenal vs Everton live score, updates, highlights from Premier League midweek match

Arsenal have multiple things to gain from Wednesday’s fixture against Everton as they host the Toffees at The Emirates in a midweek Premier League showdown.

With both teams eliminated from FA Cup competition and not involved in the ongoing FA Cup Round of 16, these two clubs can get back on track with their league fixture schedule after their game in September was postponed due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth.

The Gunners will now look to cash in on the game in hand they’ve carried over Manchester City for the last few months, and it represents a prime opportunity to build a slight cushion at the top of the Premier League table. Arsenal can go five points clear at the summit with a win today, but anything less would see them remain within reach of Pep Guardiola’s side.

Arsenal will also want revenge for defeat to Everton just a month ago in Sean Dyche’s debut with the relegation-threatened club. Arsenal fell 1-0 in that early February match, a game which significantly decreased their room for error in the Premier League title fight.

The Sporting News will be following the Arsenal vs. Everton match live and providing score updates, commentary and highlights as they happen.

88 mins to kick: One fascinating matchup wrinkle to watch in this match is the battle in the air. Arsenal are not a team that has excelled in the air this season, winning just 44 percent of their aerial duels this year, the lowest percentage in the Premier League.

It’s not exactly something Everton are exceptional at, as their 46 percent rate is third-worst in the league, but the Toffees do have a high volume, contesting 679 of them, which is seventh in the English top flight. Still, the last time these two teams played, Everton won 17 of the 29 duels for a 57 percent win rate, and scored the only goal of the match on a set-piece header by James Tarkowski.

Going to face a fair few tonight

107 mis to kick: One of the more interesting lineup debates for Arsenal today is whether manager Mikel Arteta should continue with Eddie Nketiah at striker, or select Leandro Trossard for his second start of the season at the position. Nketiah has dipped in form of late, and is reportedly carrying a knock, which could see Trossard get another start as he did against Leicester City over the weekend.

Gabriel Jesus is reportedly supposed to be back from his long-term knee injury before the upcoming international break, but there are still a few more weeks to navigate before their big summer signing is contributing again.

Arsenal can only fill the Gabriel Jesus-shaped hole in their side with Gabriel Jesus. However Leandro Trossard offered a better approximation of the Brazilian than Eddie Nketiah, who had been nursing a slight knock in the week. https://t.co/D3qkJtrov0 pic.twitter.com/YIk5AhW14T

120 mins to kick: Arsenal can become the first English club to register 100 top-flight league victories against a single opponent, sitting on 99 league wins against Everton. Their head-to-head history dates back to 1905 when Everton won the first league meeting between the two sides by a 1-0 score, but Woolwich Arsenal won the next matchup just a few weeks later 2-1.

Arsenal could become the first team in Premier League history to register 100 victories against a specific opponent when they face Everton tonight.

Arsenal vs Everton lineups, team news

The Gunners are in great form, and it’s largely due to their overall health and lineup consistency. Gabriel Jesus remains out, but he is eyeing a return in the coming weeks as he soon finds out when he’ll start training with the team.

Thomas Partey returned to action with a substitute appearance over the weekend, and could be set to reclaim his place in midfield from Jorginho, who has done well in the former’s absence. Mohamed Elneny is the only long-term absentee after knee surgery.

The biggest lineup call for Mikel Arteta will be whether to select Ben White or Takehiro Tomiyasu at right-back, while Oleksandr Zinchenko seems to have snatched the primary left-back position from Kieran Tierney. Arteta could also again select Leandro Trossard at striker if he believes Eddie Nketiah isn’t fit or suitable for the role today.

Arsenal projected starting lineup (4-3-3): Aaron Ramsdale (GK) — Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel, Oleksandr Zinchenko – Martin Odegaard, Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka — Bukayo Saka, Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel Martinelli.

Everton’s only confirmed absence is Andros Townsend, who continues to work his way back from an ACL injury and could be ready to return in early April.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is also likely to miss out, as it may be just a little early for his return from a hamstring injury. Nathan Patterson has a knock and could be held out, while James Garner is likely back.

Everton projected starting lineup (4-5-1): Jordan Pickford — Seamus Coleman, Connor Coady, James Tarkowski, Vitaliy Mykolenko — Alex Iwobi, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Idrissa Gueye, Andre Onana, Jeff McNeil — Demarai Gray.

Arsenal vs Everton betting odds

Despite the result in the reverse fixture just weeks ago, the betting market is fully behind Arsenal as they chase a Premier League title, and they are 1/3 favourites in some places. Everton, meanwhile, are upwards of 8/1 underdogs on the moneyline.

In fact, the game flow odds indicate the betting market has questions about Everton being able to score. While the over 2.5 total goals is a slight favourite, both teams not to score is heavily weighted, meaning the betting market thinks Arsenal have a chance at hitting the total all on their own.
