He may likely feature as he tries to rescue Arsenal's poor form and the fact that they lost to 3-1 to Swansea in their game on Tuesday, their new signing may be thrust into action quicker than expected. Everton, on the other hand, will be looking for Arsenal's former player, Theo Walcott to sharpen their striking force.
