I do a lot of long and ultra-long haul Y travel on EK. My advice would be to:

Definitely bring/ask for: earplugs, eyeshades
Possibly bring: bottle of water, noise isolating earphones, neck cushion

The only strategy is sleep whenever possible. Take an aisle seat towards the back of the plane as it's likely to be less full. You won't care about lavatory noise as you will have earplugs and eyeshades. On the GLA-DXB leg you want to be in rows 46+ in the 2-4-2 configuration. I would probably ignore scheduled meals in favour of sleep: if you wake up and need food, you can get snacks between meal services like biscuits. More water.
