Everton are still searching for their first win of the Premier League season and will have to dig deep if they are to get them against Arsenal today.
All the talk around Everton may be about off-the-pitch developments right now but attention will soon turn to on-field matters with Sean Dyche's side in desperate need of three points.
The Blues did manage to put a stop to their Premier League losing streak of three games with a 2-2 draw away to Sheffield United prior to the international break and their manager Dyche will be hoping his men are beginning to turn the corner.
Bu with Arsenal unbeaten so far this season, this afternoon looks set to be a major test for Everton. The Gunners faced a dramatic finish in their last game before the international break with as late strikes from Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus sealed a 3-1 home win over Manchester United.

The Blues will be hoping the emergence of new boys Beto, who scored against Doncaster in the Carabao Cup, and Arnaut Danjuma, who also scored in that match and earned the point at Sheffield United, will have enough fire power to spark their season into life.
The match between Everton and Arsenal takes place on Sunday, September 17 at Goodison Park in Liverpool and kicks-off at 4:30pm UK time.
