Arsenal Form

The hosts come into this match with an impressive streak, having won their last five games consecutively. In this period, they have netted 14 goals and conceded just two, achieving four clean sheets. This strong performance has brought them close to Manchester City at the top, although City capitalized on their game in-hand against Tottenham. In their most recent outing, the Gunners secured a 1-0 victory over Manchester United and will aim to end the season on a high note.

The visitors, however, have dealt with off-field challenges twice this season, losing a total of eight points. Despite this, the Toffees are unbeaten in their last five matches across all competitions, with four wins and one draw. They have scored seven goals and conceded only once, maintaining clean sheets in four of these games. In their most recent match, they secured a straightforward 1-0 victory against Sheffield United at home.

Another Arsenal match saw Bukayo Saka limping off the pitch once more. The 22-year-old collided with the advertising hoardings at Old Trafford and had to be substituted in the 82nd minute. Despite this, he is expected to play his usual right-wing role in the upcoming game. Meanwhile, it is uncertain if long-term ACL injury victim Jurrien Timber will get any playing time. Although he has returned to competitive action with the Under-21s, he was not included in the squads for the matches against Tottenham Hotspur, Bournemouth, or Manchester United. Consequently, Takehiro Tomiyasu will continue as Mikel Arteta's preferred left-back, likely featuring in an unchanged starting XI for the fifth consecutive game.

Meanwhile, Everton almost emerged from their win against Sheffield United unscathed, but in second-half injury time, unfortunate midfielder Andre Gomes suffered a blow to the face and is now doubtful for the trip to the Emirates. Although Gomes might still be fit to play, manager Sean Dyche will be without four players: Dele Alli (groin), Vitaliy Mykolenko (ankle), Jack Harrison (hamstring), and Nathan Patterson (thigh), with Patterson's injury also ruling him out of Scotland's Euro 2024 squad. Rising talents like Lewis Dobbin, Chermiti, and Lewis Warrington—who debuted in the Premier League as Gomes's replacement last weekend—might be considered this weekend. However, Dyche is likely to start with his senior players given the strong opposition.

Predicted Lineup

Arsenal possible lineup:

Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Odegaard, Partey, Rice; Saka, Havertz, Trossard

Everton possible lineup:

Pickford; Coleman, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Young; Garner, Onana, Gueye, McNeil; Doucoure; Calvert-Lewin

Everton's commendable performances at Goodison Park have not carried over to their away games, and Dyche's team is expected to offer minimal resistance against an Arsenal side poised to reach 89 points. The Gunners should secure a straightforward end-of-season victory in front of their home fans, though it is unlikely to prevent Manchester City from achieving their fourth consecutive title.

Prediction: Arsenal 4-0 Everton
