Theo Walcott urged to prove Arsenal wrong by Sam Allardyce

Allardyce said: "A lot of things have been said about Theo - he hasn't reached his full potential and all that - but I don't know how you could say that after last season's performance - 30-plus games, 19 goals".

They have also moved to replace the departed Alexis Sanchez with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but the pacy striker is doubtful because of illness which could prevent him from making his debut this weekend.

Arsenal enter the match off the back of a 3-1 defeat to Swansea City, who at the time were bottom of the Premier League table.

Arsenal welcome Everton in a crunch Premier League clash on the back of a moderately successful January transfer window.

Despite big investment, Everton have struggled to break away from mid-table this season and now sit in ninth, a full 11 points behind sixth-placed Arsenal, but Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is not willing to underestimate their opponents on Saturday.

22 years without a win and some awfully one-sided games decided in Arsenal's favour in between mean that it's been a while since an Everton team went to the Emirates and gave the home side a scare.

Everton meanwhile have been desperate to sign a left back to replace the injured Leighton Baines, but have found it hard to source one who is available, and now seem to have settled on the Man City central defender Mangala, who does have experience of playing at left back.

But while there was one in at Everton on deadline, there were two heading out of the club, with one move in particular infuriating Allardyce.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is in line for his first start, and one can expect the Armenian to slot into the right side of attack alongside Ozil and Iwobi in the Arsenal attack.

Since joining Everton from Sligo Rovers in 2009, the Donegal man has demonstrated this strength of mind consistently.

Danny Welbeck and Santi Cazorla are the only two who will not be on the starting sheet. Meanwhile, Aubameyang could feature despite suffering with a minor fever.

Playing his first game under Sam Allardyce, "outstanding" was the only way the Everton boss could describe such a return.

We are going for a 3-1 home win instead, and you can back our prediction at the best odds of 11/1 at the same bookmaker.
