All eyes will be on the biggest mover on transfer deadline day at the Emirates Stadium, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, when Arsenal take on Everton on Saturday night. The Gabon striker, who netted 31 times in the Bundesliga for Borussia Dortmund last season, arrived on Wednesday for £60million, allowing Olivier Giroud to complete a shock move to Chelsea later that same day.
GRAB THIS FROM BETWAY
Just how Arsene Wenger will play him, Alexandre Lacazette, Mesut Ozil and his former Dortmund teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the same team remains to be seen, but the prospect really is mouth-watering. Despite losing to Swansea on Tuesday night, the Gunners fans will be excited about this game. Sam Allardyce’s Toffees were lucky to get their first win of the year against Leicester this week and they are definitely there for the taking in this one.
Away from home, Arsenal have come unstuck in recent weeks, losing to relegation-threatened sides Bournemouth and Swansea and only drawing at West Brom. But they are a different animal at the Emirates, recently beating Crystal Palace 4-0 and Chelsea 2-1 to progress to the Carabao Cup final. Aubameyang should thrive in front of his new fans.
TAKE THIS CORAL OFFER NOW
Everton, as mentioned, have now only won once in 2018, but their performance in that game and form overall will worry their manager. Although they are ninth in the league, they are only eight points clear of the relegation zone.
Aubameyang heads straight into a side that has no fresh injury concerns, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan could get a first start.
Theo Walcott should start against his former club, while Seamus Coleman could be rested after making his return from a double leg-break on Wednesday.
