Arsenal and Everton tussle in the Premier League after both suffered very different fates in their Thursday Europa League matches.

Arsenal toughed it out in Belgrade to earn a 1-0 win to sit at the top of the group after three wins from three games.

Everton suffered a loss against Lyon to register another loss and sit bottom of their group.

Both the Gunners and the Toffees are suffering from Premier League woes, but it is undoubtedly Ronald Koeman who is having the worst of things.

Does it mean we should take things a little bit lighter? It wouldn’t matter if Everton were at the bottom of the league, bereft of a point or a goal, we should still take them seriously.

Crystal Palace were in the same position and then defeated champions Chelsea.

Plus, Everton are a far stiffer test than the Eagles on paper. After Koeman spent a bucketload on new players, much was expected from the blue half of Merseyside, so their underwhelming start to this season has heaped pressure on the Dutch boss.

Our side must take advantage of the sombre mood at Goodison, and heap more misery on Everton fans. We can ill afford another Premiership slip-up so soon into the season.

We escaped relatively unscathed against Red Star Belgrade in terms of injury, seeing as the majority of our first team regulars were not playing. With maximum points from our games in Europe, shouldn’t Wenger be considering them to revive our Premier League form?

Some players such as Olivier Giroud definitely deserve a shot at more games, but will Wenger go for two up top? The short answer is probably no. Alexandre Lacazette has been a rare beam of hope for us and must play, so to incorporate the useful Giroud, it would necessitate a shift in formation, which Wenger is loath to do.

Shkodran Mustafi is still out for the foreseeable, but Laurent Koscielny has a chance of making the team after limping off against Watford. Granit Xhaka has hardly set the world alight this season and his place should be under threat, especially with the return of Jack Wilshere, but the Swiss star will most likely play against Everton. Danny Welbeck will miss out after also injuring himself in our defeat last week.

Aside from these players, our side is intact. Everton need a win desperately - no wins in their last four games and just two points above the relegation spots, Koeman must know this is unacceptable.

To stiffen his side up, James McCarthy may come into the midfield, but Morgan Schneiderlin will need a fitness test as he didn’t last the full 90 against Lyon. There will be changes for Everton though, with Wayne Rooney and Leighton Baines amongst a raft of players who were left out on Thursday.

Our Premiership away form is of utmost concern though. Only Crystal Palace have conceded more away goals than us this calendar year - what a frightening stat. This must be arrested - and now.

So, does our away form improve or does Everton grab the win that keeps Koeman in a job?

Predicted Lineup - Cech, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal, Bellerin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Kolasinac, Ozil, Alexis, Lacazette.

Predicted Scoreline - 3-1 to The Arsenal.
