After what turned out to be a very exciting transfer window for Arsenal, it’s good to return to Premier League action at the Emirates.
Everton are the visitors on Saturday evening and Arsene Wenger has said whether or not we can expect to see the club’s new signings on display.
“Certainly [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan will start. That’s a possibility, yes,” Wenger revealed.

“We had Jack [Wilshere] who was sick – I still have to assess him today. I hope he will be capable of being in the squad. He’s better. He’ll train with the team today and we’ll see how he feels.
“Aubameyang, I have to assess how well he feels. Aubameyang was sick as well so we have to assess him today. Apart from that, Welbeck is not completely back from injury. He’s not ready.”
So, it seems that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will definitely feature for the Gunners but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may not return in time. It will be fascinating to see how this new-look Arsenal team lines up against Everton.
