The summer acquisition of Arsenal, Jurrien Timber, has been named in the first-team squad for the first time since August. The Dutch left-back will start on the bench for the match of the 38th round of the Premier League against Everton.

On August 12th, the footballer suffered a severe injury during the 1st round match of the Premier League against Nottingham Forest. The talented Dutch defender has only managed to play in two matches for the London team: the Premier League debut and the English Super Cup.

Last summer, Arsenal acquired Timber from Ajax for €40 million and had high hopes for this gifted player.

Arsenal is two points behind Manchester City with one round left in the championship. Mikel Arteta's team still maintains theoretical chances of winning the title. To achieve this, they need to defeat Everton and hope for a stumble by City in their parallel match against West Ham.

The opening whistle of the Arsenal - Everton match, like the entire 38th round, will sound at 17:00 Central European Time.
