Why is Arsenal vs Everton not on TV?

Arsenal and Everton meet in a crucial Premier League fixtures for two clubs at opposite ends of the table at the Emirates Stadium.

The hosts can move five points clear of Manchester City with victory, while a positive result for Everton on the road would be a significant boost as Sean Dyche bids to keep his side up.

The encounter was due to originally be played in September, but was postponed after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Arsenal vs Everton predicted line-ups

Arsenal: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Jorginho, Odegaard; Saka, Trossard, Martinelli.

Everton: Pickford; Coleman, Tarkowski, Coady, Mykolenko; Iwobi, Doucoure, Gueye, Onana, McNeil; Maupay.

What is the early team news?

An appearance off the bench against Leicester for Thomas Partey was welcome news for Mikel Arteta, though Jorginho is likely to continue in the starting anchor midfield role.

Knee injuries leave Mohamed Elneny and Gabriel Jesus still sidelined. Arteta must decide how to assemble his forward line having begun without a specialist centre forward at the King Power Stadium.

Everton will be without Dominic Calvert-Lewin, with a thigh injury the lastest issue ailing the striker. Also on Sean Dyche’s injury list are Nathan Patterson, James Garner and Andros Townsend. Neal Maupay may remain as Calvert-Lewin’s stand in up front.

Hello and welcome to The Independent’s coverage of tonight’s Premier League action as Arsenal host Everton. This fixture has been rearranged following the death of Queen Elizabeth II back in September and comes at a crucial time for both teams.

Arsenal hope to extend their lead at the top of the table to five points but defeat to Everton would leave them vulnerable to being caught by second place Manchester City. The Toffees meanwhile hope to escape the relegation zone and three points tonight would be enough to shoot them as high as 15th.
