Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Everton

Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League fixture with Everton.

Arsenal welcome Everton to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon looking to move ahead of their next opponents in the Premier League standings.

While Everton can move as high as seventh place, Mikel Arteta is hoping that his team can progress into eighth spot by the end of the weekend.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of squaring off against the Merseyside outfit.
