Barclays Premier League
Kick off: March 1st, 2015 1405 GMT
Looking to bounce back after the humiliating loss to Monaco in the Champions League, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made a few changes to the lineup and shape of the squad ahead of the game against Everton today. Mertesacker finds himself on the bench with Gabriel starting, and Welbeck is also benched with the Ox starting in his place.
This means that Wenger will abandon the two striker formation he has been playing lately in favour of the more familiar 4-3-3. Giroud starts as frontman, with the Ox and Sanchez flanking. Behind him, the likes of Cazorla and Ozil will look to provide. Coquelin will act as the holding midfielder.
The bench is a strong one, featuring the likes of Mertesacker, Chambers, Walcott and Welbeck. Hopefully, we will run out comfortable winners today.
