Sam Allardyce

Why Arsenal should be worried about Everton clash this weekend


Arsenal will face Everton at the weekend and one former Gunners star has claimed that there might be some headlines made during the game.

The Toffees have struggled all season, having sacked Ronald Koeman and recent form under Sam Allardyce leaving a lot to be desired.

A relegation battle has loomed at several points this season, with the side only five points ahead of drop zone before the game against Leicester on Wednesday.

Though, January recruitment could go some way to fixing their broken side with Cenk Tosun and Theo Walcott coming in.

The latter scored two goals against Leicester and all eyes are on him ahead of this weekend.

That is because he will come up against the side in which he was sold due to being surplus to requirements.

Now, pundit and former Arsenal star Martin Keown has claimed the player could come back to haunt the club.

‘Arsene Wenger will feel that Walcott did not do that enough for Arsenal,’ Keown explained in his Mail column.

‘He could be a real danger this weekend and could come back and hurt them.

‘It is important, though, that the Arsenal fans have new players in Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang to pin their hopes on.

‘Imagine if Walcott scored two goals at the Emirates this weekend and Arsenal had not brought in anyone to replace him!’

Where will Aubameyang & Mhkitaryan play for Arsenal? Five possible formations

While many of the eyes at the Emirates will be on Theo Walcott, they will also be elsewhere.

That is because new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be making his Arsenal debut this weekend.

Not only that, he could be lining up with former Borussia Dortmund teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

We’ve gone and predicted how the side could lineup with both players in the team.
