Arsenal were not completely convincing in their victories over Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace, after which they were held to a draw at home to Fulham. But they claimed their first big scalp of the season before the international break, beating Manchester United 3-1 at the Emirates.
Everton are struggling at the other end of the table. Of a possible 12 points so far this term, they have picked up just one. There were a few promising signs in the 2-2 draw with Sheffield Utd last time out, yet Everton still needed a world-class double save from Jordan Pickford late on to avoid defeat.
Much has been made of Everton's lack of attacking firepower, but they are struggling in defense even more. Only Luton, Fulham and Burnley have conceded more goals so far this season, leaving Sean Dyche with plenty of work to do. Everton won this fixture last term, though, which gives them some hope for Sunday's showdown, as may the news of their prospective new owners.
Still, Mikel Arteta’s side ended the first sprint of the season before the international break with a dramatic win over Manchester United and look strong favourites to beat a Toffees team who are seriously struggling.
Mikel Arteta’s side snatched a late victory over Manchester United before the international break to make it ten points from a possible twelve in their opening four games as they look to keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the table.
Sean Dyche’s side, meanwhile, picked up their opening points of the season prior to the international break with a 2-2 away draw against Sheffield United. The Merseyside club won this fixture 1-0 last season in Sean Dyche’s first game in charge and will be hoping for a repeat performance to kickstart their league campaign.
Everton continue to grapple with a host of injuries to key players with Dele Ali and Seamus Coleman long-term absentees. Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Jarrad Branthwaite, Jack Harrison and Andre Gomes could all make a return to the starting XI following their various injuries, while James Tarkowski is expected to recover from a facial injury sustained against Sheffield United.
Arsenal, by contrast, have few injury concerns. Summer-signing Jurien Timber is set for a long spell on the sidelines, while Sunday’s game may well come too soon for Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny who are recovering from groin and knee injuries respectively.
A new era looms at Goodison Park, but on Sunday Everton's concerns will be altogether more short term than new ownership. With one draw and three defeats so far, Sean Dyche's side, set to be bought by 777 Partners before the end of the year, need to get points on the board.
Arsenal have similar priorities as they look to keep up with early season pace setters Manchester City. Mikel Arteta's side dropped just two points before the international break but now enter a pivotal point where they must balance Champions League and Premier League, the visit to Everton starting a crucial seven days that conclude with a north London derby at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners faced a dramatic finish in their most recent match, with a late winner from Declan Rice earning a victory against Man United at the Emirates Stadium. This put Mikel Arteta’s side on ten points with four games played, just two points behind the only team with a 100% record, Manchester City.
Sean Dyche’s Everton, meanwhile, have endured a tough start to their campaign and currently sit winless in the relegation zone. Just two goals in their four games so far were both scored in their last outing, a battling 2-2 draw at Sheffield United before the international break.
They will be boosted by the last time Arsenal travelled to Goodison, with a resounding performance earning a 1-0 win in Dyche’s first match in charge of the Toffees . However, he may be unable to conjure up a similarly raucous atmosphere after a tough summer on Merseyside has led to some discontent among the club’s loyal supporters.
Despite this, the Premier League remains a constant source of drama and despite their trevails Everton will retain a chance of achieving victory and Arteta’s men will have to be at their best to avoid another upset.
Having suffered an injury scare before the international break, Gabrial Maghalles could face a race to be fit and ready to face Everton after playing for Brazil on international duty. He suffered a knock on his international debut but carried on playing before spotted with an ice pack on his knee after the match - a return to training two days later was a relief to Arsenal fans.
Meanwhile, Thomas Partey is also expected to be missing from the action as he continues his recovery from an injury which was announced during the international break by the Ghanaian FA. He joins Jurrien Timber on the sidelines, with the Dutchman entering the ‘recovery’ phase of his injury following successful knee surgery.
For Everton, summer signing Beto may get a chance to impress from the start for Dyche following a facial injury suffered by Dominic Calvert-Lewin before the international break. Jack Harrison is also stepping up his recovery but it remains to be seen if he will be fit to start this weekend.
The Toffees earned their first point in the English top flight this season when they held Sheffield United to a 2-2 draw ahead of the international break, while Mikel Arteta's men recorded an impressive 3-1 victory over Manchester United.
Dyche’s team go into this weekend as one of five teams in the division still searching for a first win, having tasted defeats against Fulham, Aston Villa and Wolves before salvaging a point at Sheffield United last time out. Their home form has been dismal, having won one of their last six on their own patch which came in the crunch final day meeting with Bournemouth that saw them avoid relegation by the skin of their teeth.
A lack of goals continue to cause Dyche headaches, as his team have failed to score more than once in any of their last 15 league matches at Goodison, registered two goals this season despite boasting an xG of 7.3. He will be hoping that new £26 million striker Beto can change their fortunes, who has already saved them from an embarrassing League Cup exit at the hands of Doncaster Rovers.
Mikel Arteta is all too familiar with his opponents having played with the Toffees in his playing career but is yet to land a win on his old stomping ground. Arsenal know that a win here and in the North London Derby will set them up with a better points total than their first six games of last season.
This is an opportunity to get some points on the comparisons board and a three-point swing from the previous campaign. Yet there’s plenty of narrative on offer thanks to this week’s events.
Arsenal struggled with the new manager bounce as it’s called last season when Sean Dyche came in and managed to secure a pivotal 1-0 win in the race for survival. This year the Gunners arrive off the back of a Toffees takeover with 777 Partners securing a majority stake from Farhad Moshiri who himself has his former links to north London.
