Everton will be looking to get back to winning ways after five league games without victory, but their task will be far from routine as they head to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side simply haven’t had the quality throughout the squad to keep pace with the race for European spots over the last couple of months, winning just three of their last 11 league games despite having been in the top four not too long ago, however briefly it lasted.

Arsenal, on the other hand, have had a largely dismal campaign spent in mid-table at best, with three points here able to carry them above their opponents into eighth - though they would still have played a game more.

The Gunners are still on the silverware trail in the Europa League, but there’s no question the season as a whole has been an innate disappointment to supporters - even without considering the club’s part in the European Super League shambles.

Here’s everything you need to know before the match.

When is the match?

The game kicks off at 8pm on Friday 23 April.

The match will be televised live on Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Ultra HD with coverage getting underway at 7:30pm. If you’re not a Sky customer you can grab a NOWTV Day Pass here to watch without a subscription.

What is the team news?

Arsenal will continue to be without David Luiz and Kieran Tierney because of injuries, while Alexandre Lacazette could also be a doubt following a hamstring issue. However, Martin Odegaard could return to the team following a foot injury, as could Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was recently treated for malaria.

Arteta is likely to make changes to his starting XI, with Nicholas Pepe and Thomas Partey likely to be included. Nketiah could play in the middle if Aubameyang has not returned.

Everton have a number of injury concerns, with Abdoulaye Doucoure, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Fabian Delph, Yerry Mina and Bernard all unavailable for this fixture.

Andre Gomes is likely to return from injury and the Toffees will be hoping that Dominic Calvert-Lewin is cleared in time for the match.

Confirmed line ups

Arsenal: Leno, Chambers, Holding, Mari, Xhaka, Partey, Ceballos, Saka, Smith Rowe, Pepe; Nketiah

Everton: Pickford, Coleman, Godfrey, Holgate, Digne, Allan, Andre Gomes, Sigurdsson, Calvert-Lewin, Rodriguez, Richarlison

Prediction

Everton’s away form this season has been very good, but they haven’t won at Arsenal since January 1996. Both teams have had unreliable form in recent weeks and with Everton’s many injuries, it is likely that Arsenal will come away with a victory on Friday night. Arsenal 2-1 Everton

Odds

Arsenal – 10/11

Draw – 13/5

Everton – 3/1
