Let’s go for a new day of Premier League on the Foot Mercato site! This Saturday, Arsenal moves on the lawn of Everton, at Goodison Park, on behalf of this 22nd day of the English championship. A real clash of extremes between two formations with diametrically opposed dynamics. Premier League leader (50pts), undefeated since September and winner of its last two big games against Tottenham (0-2) and Manchester United (3-2), the London club hopes to continue its incredible series and widen the gap with his runner-up in the standings, Manchester City (45pts). Opposite, the Toffees (19th, 15pts), who have just separated from Franck Lampard and appointed Sean Dyche as head of the first team following catastrophic sporting results, will try to win their first meeting for almost three months and start this new chapter on a good note. This part will be followed live with live commentary on the Foot Mercato site from 1:30 p.m.
For this new Premier League outing, Mikel Arteta has decided to opt for a tactical scheme organized in 4-3-3, which has been very successful since the start of the season. Unsurprisingly, William Saliba is aligned in central defense with Gabriel. The midfield is made up of Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard, while Gabriel Martinelli, Buyako Saka and Eddie Nketiah start on the attacking front. On the local side, Sean Dyche has decided for his big first and aligns a system organized in 4-4-1-1. The offensive line is led by Dominic Calvert-Lewin, supported by Abdoulaye Doucouré. Former Parisian Idrissa Gueye and ex-Lillois Amadou Onana are lined up in front of the defense and will have the heavy task of containing the Gunners’ formidable and sharp offensives this season.
The essays :
Arsenal: Ramsdale – White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko – Xhaka, Partey, Odegaard – Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli.
Everton: Pickford-Coleman, Tarkowski, Coady, Mykolenko-Iwobi, Gueye, Onana, McNeil-Doucouré, Calvert-Lewin.
