According to reports, Sean Dyche is set to start both Beto and Dominic Calvert-Lewin against Arsenal at Goodison Park on Sunday. Beto made his debut for the Toffees before the international break against Sheffield United where he didn’t score but he caused their defence all sorts of problems throughout the game and Arsenal can expect a similar challenge tomorrow afternoon.
According to the Goodison News, Beto will make his Goodison Park debut on Sunday while Dominic Calvert-Lewin is expected to be available after a facial injury with both players expected to start the match.
Sean Dyche is “preparing to partner” the fit again striker with his new summer signing as they look to claim their first win of the season after three defeats and a draw in their first four games.
Arsenal travel to Goodison Park having lost this fixture last season in Sean Dyche’s first game in charge of Everton, and in fact the Gunners haven’t won against the Toffees at their own place since the 2017/18 season – six years ago!

Sean Dyche is preparing his side in a traditional 4-4-2 formation with two big strikers up top to cause Arsenal all sorts of problems. Beto and Calvert-Lewin are known for their aggression and strength so Saliba and Gabriel will have to be at the top of their games to keep the two Everton men quiet tomorrow.
The Gunners centre-backs faced a similar test last time out when Rasmus Hojlund was brought on for Manchester United and they managed to deal with him well. Gabriel will have to produce a similar performance on Sunday if Arsenal are to come away from Merseyside with all three points.
A win would see Arsenal jump up to third in the Premier League table, level on points with Liverpool and two points behind the leaders, Manchester City.
