The best thing about Mikel Arteta’s brief time in charge of Arsenal is that it’s enjoyable to watch the Gunners again. We’ve not yet reached the point that I’m convinced and confident that it isn’t all going to come crashing down at any moment, but we are working towards that point.

Arsenal have a big match against Everton today. They have a chance to get within a few points of a Champions League spot and to finally get out of the mid-table congestion that they’ve been stuck in all season. But the Toffees are playing well. New boss Carlo Ancelotti has lost just once in the league, and it was to Manchester City. Even though today’s match is at the Emirates, it’s going to be a tricky one.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I have confidence in Arsenal today. The defense has given up just 5 goals in 9 matches this calendar year, and I think the offense will find a couple goals at home. Come on you Gunners.

Arsenal - Leno, Bellerin, Mustafi, David Luiz, Kolasinac, Ceballos, Xhaka, Pepe, Ozil, Aubameyang, Nketiah

Everton - Pickford, Baines, Mina, Holgate, Sidibe, Iwobi, Delph, Schneiderlin, Sigurdsson, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin
