Everton vs. Arsenal: Lineups

Darron Gibson is finally back from injury for Everton, and slots right into their starting XI for their crucial match against Arsenal. Arsene Wenger looks to be playing Aaron Ramsey as a wide player again, and has selected Theo Walcott ahead of Lukas Podolski, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Gervinho on the other flank. Thomas Vermaelen will play left back.

Everton starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Tim Howard; Leighton Baines, Sylvain Distin, Phil Jagielka, Tony Hibbert; Darron Gibson, Leon Osman; Steven Naismith, Marouane Fellaini, Steven Pienaar; Nikica Jelavic

Arsenal starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Wojceich Szczesny; Thomas Vermaelen, Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertesacker, Bacary Sagna; Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta; Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla, Theo Walcott; Olivier Giroud

Everton's formation is hardly set in stone given the adaptive nature of most of their players. Most of their midfield players can operate in multiple positions, so don't be surprised if their team looks different than the one listed here. Kickoff is at 7:45 p.m. local time, 2:45 p.m. ET from Goodison Park.
