According to the Daily Mail there was no sign of Seamus Coleman in Everton training yesterday, which means that Jonjoe Kenny will continue to start.

Coleman has picked up an injury which left him sidelined for Everton’s match at the weekend, which came against West Ham United.

 

The right-back is not anticipated to miss too much of the season, but it seems that he won’t be fit to play at the Emirates.

It means that Marco Silva will be forced into continuing to giving Kenny chances at right-back.

Kenny is still very young, and could be in for the biggest test of his career at Arsenal.

The England youth international has impressed when offered chances in Everton’s first-team previously, but taking on a side of Arsenal’s quality will be a tough test for him.

Kenny actually was one of Everton’s better performers in their 3-1 defeat to West Ham United last weekend, but the Toffees defence, as a whole, will be wanting a much improved display this weekend.
