Arsenal XI for Everton clash – The Ox starts

Even with Arsenal having been reminded by Aaron Ramsey of how much the team has suffered in recent with injury problems, it is also crucial for Arsenal to keep up the recent level of performances and results in the Premier League.

In Everton the Gunners have an opponent that can give anyone a hard time on their day and Roberto Martinez will be keen to at the very least play well and put last week´s home defeat by Man United to one side. So I will be amazed to see Arsene Wenger rest any key men like Mesut Ozil or Alexis Sanchez.

Obviously we need to replace Ramsey but I think that will be our only change and in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Arsenal have a ready made replacement. He may not play the same way as Ramsey but he is a more natural wide man and has the pace and direct running to give Everton´s weakened left flank some real trouble. This is my team.

Cech
Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Coquelin, Cazorla
Ox, Ozil, Alexis
Walcott

I expect a fast start from the Gunners and if we can get an early goal then I think we could go on to have the result sewn up with enough time for Wenger to then rest Alexis, Cazorla or whoever needs it the most.
