Everton-Arsenal 2-5 as it happened

Wenger Arsenal
22 October at 16:30
A brilliant sequence -- which ended in an Olivier Giroud overhead kick gave Arsenal its third consecutive Europa League victory on Thursday, but now the Gunners look to get back on track in the Premier League.
Arsene Wenger and his side will travel to Goodison Park on Sunday to take on Everton, who has struggled mightily to start the 2017/18 campaign. The Toffees sit on eight points through as many matches and are just two points above the bottom three.
On top of their domestic shortcomings, the Toffees currently sit last in their Europa League group with one point, after falling at home to Lyon three days ago.
The Gunners will have several tough decisions to make once more as Laurent Koscielny and Aaron Ramsey will likely miss the clash with injuries. However, Alexis Sanchez is expected back in the lineup for Wenger and Co.
Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman is expected to have a host of players back on Sunday for Everton, including Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Leighton Baines.
Arsenal has owned the head-to-head battle between these two clubs historically, with Everton winning just two of its last 23 encounters against the Gunners. Koeman and his men did manage a victory last season though when the teams met in December.
Everton XI: Pickford; Williams, Keane, Jagielka, Baines; Gueye, Schneiderlin, Vlasic, Sigurdsson, Calvert-Lewin; Rooney
Arsenal XI: Cech; Holding, Mertesacker, Monreal; Kolasinac, Xhaka, Elneny, Bellerin; Sanchez, Iwobi; Lacazette
