Arsenal will be high on confidence after their 2-0 win over Bayern Munich and the Gunners look to carry on their winning run in the Premier League when they host Everton at the Emirates Stadium later tonight. How will Arsenal line-up for the clash? Here is their possible playing XI
Goalkeeper: Petr Cech
Wenger will not risk 3 points by playing Colombia’s David Ospina in front of the goal. So, it is certain that EPL’s clean sheet record holder and Arsenal’s new signing Petr Cech will be the Arsenal goalkeeper for Arsene Wenger’s man.
Defence: Hector Bellerín, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal
Arsenal’s defence has been rock solid so far this season and Wenger won’t tinker much with his defensive combinations. This means Laurent Koscielny will start alongside Per Mertesacker at the back while the Spanish full-backs Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal will be first choice right-back and left-back respectively.
Midfield: Francis Coquelin, Santi Cazorla, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mesut Özil and Alexis Sánchez
Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla has been a revelation for Arsenal this season and once again, the duo is set to to start at the base of the midfield and has a crucial role to play for the Gunners. English winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will start in place of Aaron Ramsey as the Welshman is ruled out of he game due to a hamstring injury he sustained in the Bayern Munich clash. Ox will start in the right side with Arsenal’s in-form hitman Alexis Sanchez starting on the left. Mesut Ozil, who has been in brilliant form this season will be playing right behind the striker in the number 10 role.
Attack: Theo Walcott
England’s Theo Walcott will once again start ahead of French striker Olivier Giroud up front after Wenger himself has revealed that the Englishman will be his first choice at Arsenal.
