Arsenal XI vs Everton: Jorginho benched - Starting lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for game today
Jorginho will have to wait to make his Arsenal debut today after not being picked for the starting line-up against Everton as Thomas Partey recovers from injury.
The new £12million signing from Chelsea is eligible for the trip to Goodison Park after being registered with the Premier League.
Mikel Arteta does not disrupt his regular starting line-up after Partey overcame a rib injury picked up in the FA Cup defeat at Manchester City.

Arteta said ahead of the game: “Let’s see, that one is still a doubt. Let’s see how he comes in today and if he’s able to train or not. We will make a decision on that.
“He’s not ruled out and it’s nothing very significant, but it was significant enough to get him out of the game which for Thomas is a bit unusual but hopefully he’ll be fine.”
Elsewhere, the Gunners are without Mohamed Elneny following his operation on a knee injury. Gabriel Jesus (knee) and Reiss Nelson (hamstring) remain absent.
Emile Smith Rowe missed the trip to Manchester after picking up a thigh problem and, despite that being described as a precaution at the time, he also misses out today.
Arsenal XI: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Partey, Odegaard, Xhaka; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli.
Subs: Turner, Tierney, Tomiyasu, Holding, Kiwior, Jorginho, Trossard, Vieira, Cozier-Duberry.
