Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal squad has been revealed ahead of the final game of the Premier League 2021/22 season.
The Gunners take on Everton on Sunday afternoon and need a win if they are to have any chance of securing Champions League football next season. Arsenal sit two points behind Tottenham after back-to-back defeats last week, meaning the Gunners need relegated side Norwich to get a positive result against Spurs if they are to have any chance of finishing inside the top four.
Arteta is set to be without a number of first team players, with Thomas Partey ruled out for the clash against the Toffees, football.london understands. Kieran Tierney is another key player that will miss the final game of the season after the Scottish defender picked up a knee injury in April and is still recovering following successful surgery.
As for Everton, the Toffees secured their Premier League safety on Thursday night after an astonishing 3-2 win after goals from Michael Keane, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin turned the game around after Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace side were 2-0 up at half-time. With that in mind, football.london takes a look at the full squad at Arteta’s disposal for Sunday afternoon’s clash at the Emirates for the final time this season.
