Predicted Arsenal line-up vs Everton, Tomiyasu keeps his place

Arsenal welcome Everton to the Emirates Stadium for the final game of the Premier League campaign.

The Gunners are currently two points behind leaders Manchester City and need a huge favour from West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium to have any chance of winning the league.

Ahead of the game, manager Mikel Arteta has a fully fit squad to choose from. Jurrien Timber could be back in the matchday squad for the first time since recovering from a knee injury.

Formation: 4-3-3

Predicted Line-up:

David Raya has already won the Premier League Golden Glove award with 16 clean sheets in the top-flight campaign. The Spaniard is expected to continue in goal ahead of Aaron Ramsdale due to the club’s outside chance of winning the league.

In defence, it should be a familiar back four in Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes and Takehiro Tomiyasu. Arteta has regularly changed his left-back this term. Tomiyasu, 25, appears to be his preferred choice at the current point due to his better defensive attributes.

Thomas Partey has brought a sense of calm with his distribution and ball control from the number six role and he should keep his place ahead of Jorginho. Declan Rice and Martin Odegaard will form the central midfield for the Gunners as usual.

In the final third, no changes are on the cards. Leandro Trossard scored the Gunners’ winner at Old Trafford with his superb timing into the box. The Belgian has netted 17 goals for the campaign and has proved a brilliant signing for the club. He is set to start from the left wing.

Bukayo Saka was substituted with a minor knock, but he should reclaim his spot on the right flank. Kai Havertz has had an exceptional 2024 with eight goals and six assists in the Premier League. He will be aiming to end the season on a high with another goal involvement at least.
