After a miserable performance at home last weekend put a big dent in the Everton fans’ confidence, the manager Marco Silva is expecting a reaction today from his charges. Nevermind that the Blues have never beaten Arsenal at the Emirates, spanning across three decades, or that Silva beat the Gunners three years ago with Olympiakos in the Champions League, today is a new day.
The Blues will welcome back Richarlison into the squad, with the Brazilian winger’s suspension showing how reliant the attack has been on his innovation. Bernard also did well after his introduction just before the break and should play a part today. It’ll be interesting to see if Silva keeps the backline constant or new signing Yerry Mina will get his Toffees debut.
