Everton team news: Trio to return vs Arsenal, attacker 50-50

A rejuvenated Everton outfit are due to play against Arsenal in a Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Both teams will be going all out for victory in order to revive their hopes of finishing in the top four this season.

The Toffees enter the clash in good form after having won three out of their last five league games.

By contrast, the Gunners have won just one out of their previous five league games but enter Sunday’s clash on the back of a 4-0 thrashing of Newcastle United.

Everton could be set to welcome back Andre Gomes for the first time since November after the Portugal international recovered from ankle surgery, according to BBC Sport.

The report added that Fabian Delph is available again after serving a ban while Bernard has also overcome a minor injury.

Everton veteran Theo Walcott is set to be assessed ahead of the game against his former club.

The game is a tough one to predict.

Everton have  improved significantly since Carlo Ancelotti became their manager.  They however do not have a good away record against Arsenal after not winning in 23 top-flight fixtures against them.  

Everton are in high spirits and have lost just one out of their previous 11 league games.

They can fancy their chances of winning against the Gunners especially under the proven Ancelotti.

They will however face a difficult task against Mikel Arteta’s side.

The two teams last played out to a 0-0 stalemate at Goodison Park in December.
