Ones to watch
Arsenal: Nicolas Pepe
It’s fair to say Nicolas Pepe, who became Arsenal’s record signing last summer, has not begun his Gunners career the way he would have wanted.
The 24-year-old Ivorian winger managed just one goal and two assists in his opening 10 league appearances, totalling 729 minutes. However, last time out against Newcastle United, we saw Pepe at his devastating best and Arteta will be hoping it’ll be a moment they’ll look back on as the start of something special.
Key stat: Nicolas Pepe was involved in three of Arsenal’s four goals against Newcastle United on matchday 26.
Everton: Dominic Calvert-Lewin
The absence of Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford means opportunity knocks for Danny Ings and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, both of whom have been in good scoring form of late.
This season, Calvert-Lewin has gone from being on the fringes to Everton‘s most important forward alongside Richarlison, meaning David Luiz and company will likely have their hands full on Sunday.
Key stat: Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored 43% of Everton‘s league goals under Carlo Ancelotti.

Arsenal are now looking to kick on under Arteta after securing their second league win under the Spaniard last time out. Everton, who are recovering quickly under Ancelotti, are certain to provide a sterner examination than Newcastle but the Gunners — with their home advantage — should have enough going forward to run out narrow winners.
