Arsene Wenger has made three changes for the Gunners’ crucial clash against their fellow top-four hopefuls who head into the game fresh from beating QPR 2-0 on Saturday
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has made three changes from the starting XI which beat Norwich 3-1 for their crucial clash against Everton – including recalling Theo Walcott.
England international Walcott came of the bench on Saturday but gets a chance to impress in place of Gervinho.
Elsewhere, Wojciech Szczesny replaces the injured Lukas Fabianski in goal while Per Mertesacker comes straight back into the side after sitting out the win against the Canaries through suspension – replacing Thomas Vermaelen.
As for visitors, Toffees boss David Moyes has opted to make just the one change from the side which beat QPR in their previous match – handing a start to highly-rated Ross Barkley in place of Leon Osman.
