Everton Double Chance
Everton have secured two wins, one draw and have only lost one of their last four games against Arsenal. The Toffees have already won 9 and drawn three of their 15 away games in the Premier League this season, while Arsenal have dropped points in 10 of their 16 home matches.
Each of the last two meetings between Arsenal and Everton have seen both teams score, with the Toffees claiming a 2-1 win in the duo’s last encounter back in December. Three of Arsenal’s and three of Everton’s last six outings in all competitions have ended with both teams finding the back of the net, so you can see why we doubt that either side will keep a clean sheet on Friday night.
We’re predicting a final scoreline of 2-1 to Everton, the same scoreline that was produced when Everton played host to Arsenal in December. The Toffees have won more games on the road than Arsenal have in their own backyard this season and while neither team in the best of form right now, Everton do put in better performances on their travels.
Fresh from announcing their intention to withdraw from the proposed European Super League, Arsenal will continue their Premier League campaign at home to top-four chasing Everton on Friday evening. The Gunners are currently ninth in the table, three points behind eighth-placed Everton, who still have ambitions of finishing in the Champions League positions this term despite a disappointing run of form
The proposed European Super League appeared to come crashing down on Tuesday night as all six Premier League clubs confirmed their withdrawal; the Gunners will now be keen to put an incredible few days behind them when they resume their league campaign at home to top-four chasing Everton on Friday evening.
Mikel Arteta’s side will bring a four-game unbeaten run into the contest, including an impressive 4-0 victory away to Slavia Prague in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final on April 15, which set up a semi-final with Villarreal, with the first leg due to take place next week. Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw by Fulham in their last league game, though, and needed a last-gasp equaliser from Eddie Nketiah to secure a share of the spoils against their relegation-threatened opponents.
The Gunners are currently ninth in the table, having picked up just 46 points from their 32 league games this term; they are nine points off fourth-placed Chelsea but sit just four points behind seventh-placed Tottenham Hotspur as the race for European positions continues.
Arteta’s side have won six, drawn four and lost six of their 16 home league games this term, which is a record that will hand Everton confidence, particularly as the Toffees recorded a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture at Goodison Park back in December.
