Arsenal v Everton Confirmed Team News & final predicted line-up of 2021-22

Arsenal will take on Everton at the Emirates today as we look to end the season with a win, but we do have some personnel issues to contend with.

The Gunners have to give their all to make sure they seal all three points today, but if their team is only as fit as they were to take on Newcastle on Monday, we could have a difficult afternoon on our hands.

While we will welcome Rob Holding back into the squad after his suspension, we still have to figure out whether one of Ben White or Gabriel Magalhaes is ready to start, as well as having to deal with the absence of Kieran Tierney and the fitness worries of Takehiro is also an issue also.

Thomas Partey returned to training this week, but I don’t think anyone is really expecting him to make the starting line-up, and we don’t believe he will make the squad either unfortunately. Emile Smith Rowe is another who didn’t make it through the Newcastle match, and is likely to be out of today’s starting line-up also.

Predicted Arsenal XI:

Cedric White Holding Tavares
Elneny Xhaka
Saka Odegaard Martinelli

If there wasn’t so much as stake today, I would have expected Bernd Leno to come into the side for one final appearance, but I’m not expecting Arteta to make any changes to his team that he wouldn’t intend to on a normal matchday.

It could be interesting if Lacazette makes his return to the team, with Nketiah amongst those who struggled on Monday, with the Frenchman having the leadership and experience which may help get us over the line this afternoon.

That back line does leave question marks, especially after White’s struggles in his previous fixture, but we can only hope that the players’ conditions have improved since our loss at St James’s Park.

Are there any players you are expecting to feature ahead of the selection above?

    1. I think laca will start and captain the side in his final game.

      I’m expecting Leno, Pepe and Nketiah to come on as subs in their last matches for the club too.

      Moving forward and off topic, the comments by Saliba are making me think, the club will extend his contract then give him another year at Marseille. He will get Champions League experience, however if we win and spurs lose, he will get Champions League experience with us. If he stays at Marseille, we will probably promote Ballard to the squad and as a 4th choice centre half with 66 matches and 10 international caps under his belt that is not a bad option.

      1. Oh well laca from the bench, I do wonder if Arteta is hopeful Eddie and Elneny might stay?

  1. This is an inconsequential match as our league position is already finalized. And Everton also have avoided relegation, so they won’t bother much either. Real fight is at the top of the table and for 17th position

  2. I reckon Everton won’t put up much of a fight. I remember us playing already relegated WBA at home on the last round of PL. We won 5-0 which was our highest scoring game all season.

    That being said no doubt our players will play like they shat themselves.

  3. I think arsenal have gone through there tough times and will bounce back with a 3-0 win with nketiah getting on the score sheet

  4. All an anti climax sadly but you can’t lose five games in nine. I think this will confirm why we didn’t make the top four. At best 0-0 at worst 0-1

  5. Everton have beating Arsenal 3 times consecutively last season (twice) and this season (once).
    So therefore, the Gunners shouldn’t take beating the Toffees for granted in the today’s final day of the season match between themselves. But take beating them very seriously and beat them resoundingly as if their lives depend on beating them before they can live
    Everton may have nothing other than their prestige and honour to play for in the match. And this can make them dangerous to play against today by Arsenal.
    As the Toffees could play with unlimited freedom in the match as against the Gunners who are likely to play under tension in their minds. As they are still nursing a faint hope to play in the UCL next.
    The faint Gunners hope that could be revived to come back to life at Carrow Road today’s afternoon
