It is all about keeping focus for Arsenal and continu8ing to build the momentum that the performances and results have got us after the three draws in a row during November that looked like they might derail our challenge for the Premier League title.
Since then Arsenal have played well and been ruthless enough to win by large margins against the likes of West Ham, Bournemouth, Stoke and Basel and I am sure that is exactly what Arsene Wenger is looking for in this evening´s trip to face Ronald Koeman’s struggling Everton side.
So it is no surprise to see the boss keep faith with the same starting line-up that bounced back from that Stoke penalty to win quite comfortably at the weekend, with the obvious exception of our injured German centre back Shkodran Mustafi who is replaced at the back by Gabriel.
Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal
Walcott, Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain
Subs: Ospina, Gibbs, Holding, Elneny, Iwobi, Lucas, Giroud
That back four will need to stay strong with Lukaku and Valencia to contend with but having Coquelin to protect them is a big help and we hope to see most of the goalmouth action at the other end. Any win will do to see Arsenal regain top spot for the night, but can we expect another big scoreline from the Gunners?
