What have you got for us, Hammers?

Victory for Manchester City in N17 means Arsenal are praying for a final day twist on Sunday. The Gunners' deficit is two, but their superior goal difference means if West Ham could squeak at a draw at the Etihad - you've got to hold out some hope, right?! - Arsenal would be crowned champions should they get the business done against Everton.

Mikel Arteta has been blessed with a healthy squad during the run-in, and barring an unwanted late surprise, he should have a full complement of players available this weekend. Whether he decides to include Jurrien Timber, who travelled to Old Trafford last Sunday, in the matchday squad is another matter.

Here's how the Gunners could line up against Everton on Sunday.

Goalkeeper & Defenders

David Raya (GK) - The Spaniard just can't stop keeping clean sheets! Raya is aiming for his 17th Premier League shut out this weekend.

Ben White (RB) - White has been ubiquitous in the backline this season, and I'm going to stick my neck out and suggest that won't change on Sunday.

William Saliba (CB) - Saliba was excellent at Old Trafford last week amid another stellar campaign. The channel-running of Dominic Calvert-Lewin represents a tricky challenge.

Gabriel (CB) - It's set to be a dogfight in both boxes on Sunday with Everton proving similarly proficient at set-pieces as the Gunners. Gabriel has benefitted the most from dead-ball situations this season.

Takehiro Tomiyasu (LB) - It'd be nice to see Timber in the squad, and even sweeter to see him get some minutes to round off the campaign. However, Tomiyasu is certain to start.


Thomas Partey (CM) - If Arteta does make a change to his team on Sunday, Partey will likely come out in place of Jorginho. The Ghanaian could be playing his last game for the game in this one.

Declan Rice (CM) - It's been a superb debut season for Rice, and the dominant midfielder will be hoping to finish the campaign with a bang this weekend.

Martin Odegaard (CM) - Many a Gooner will be dreaming of this man lifting the Premier League title under some north London sun on Sunday afternoon.


Bukayo Saka (RW) - Saka starred on the final day last season amid fears of a burn out. His form down the stretch hasn't exactly been consistent and he was poor last weekend, but it'd be fitting for him to shine at the Emirates

Kai Havertz (ST) - Havertz has cemented himself as Arsenal's leading man up top, with the German's productive run continuing at Old Trafford. A physical Everton centre-back pairing will make life difficult for him.

Leandro Trossard (LW) - The match-winner from Sunday has kept Arsenal in this title race... arguably. He'll be remembered ever so fondly on the red side of north London should the Gunners end up with the title.
