Arsenal vs Everton 101 Great Goals prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Everton

Arsenal got only their second win under Mikel Arteta at the weekend, and will be looking to build on that against Everton.

The Gunners have been pretty inconsistent under the Spaniard, beating Manchester United then being held by Crystal Palace is a pretty good example of that.

However, the win over Newcastle felt different.

It took Arsenal until the second half to click, but when they did, they looked unplayable.

Now, Mikel Arteta will be looking to take encouragement from that and replicate the performance in front of their own fans at the Emirates.

Though, Carlo Ancelotti will be looking to stop them in their tracks.

Everton are a well-oiled machine under the Italian, who succeeded Marco Silva at the end of 2019.

Since Ancelotti joined, only Liverpool have taken more points than the Toffees.

Now, with a top-six spot in Everton’s sights, Ancelotti will be looking to mastermind a rare win at the Emirates this weekend.

Arsenal vs Everton: Who will win?

Following their comprehensive win over Newcastle last weekend, Arsenal go into this game as the favourites.

The Gunners are priced at evens to win, which isn’t the worst price.

Considering Everton’s recent form, it’s always going to be a risk, but the Toffees’ form away from home has always been inconsistent.

Everton go into the match priced at 13/5 to win, which represents good value if you do fancy Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

A draw, which on the face of it sounds a very plausible result, is also priced at 13/5.

Though, we’re backing an Arsenal win for this one.

The Toffees just seem to struggle away from home, and the Emirates is a historically bad stomping ground for them.

Both teams to score and an Arsenal win, priced at 11/4, is also a very attractive option.

A 2-1 scoreline in favour of the home side, as we predict, is priced at 17/2.

Moving onto the goalscorer market, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang unsurprisingly leads the charts.

The Gabon striker is priced at 3/1 to score first, having scored 15 goals in the Premier League so far this season.

Alexandre Lacazette (15/4), Gabriel Martinelli (9/2), Eddie Nketiah (5/1) and Nicolas Pepe (11/2) all follow after.

That means that Everton’s most likely scorer according to the bookies is Richarlison, priced at a whopping 13/2.

The Brazilian was brilliant in Everton’s last game against Crystal Palace, and represents very good value.

Though, our pick for first goalscorer goes to Nicolas Pepe.

The Ivorian looks to have finally hit form, and his set-pieces add some value to his 11/2 odds.

Arsenal vs Everton match preview

Arsenal could be starting to hit form at just the right time.

With the race for the top six now wide open, Mikel Arteta’s side have a real chance of moving up the table and being brought into the conversation for Europe.

That would likely not be the case if Arsenal hadn’t comprehensively beaten Newcastle at the weekend.

Before that game, Arteta really struggled to start his Arsenal career positively.

The Gunners had some pretty disappointing results against the likes of Burnley and Crystal Palace.

Though, their win over Newcastle, specifically in the second half, showcased what this Arsenal side can do.

Some fluid football, clinical finishing and a bit of flair combined to give Arsenal a confidence-building win.

Now, they’ll be looking to build on that against Everton this weekend.

Can the Toffees come away with all three points?

Arsenal aren’t the only side in form, though.

Everton are one of the Premier League’s most in-form sides under Carlo Ancelotti.

In fact, since the Italian took over at Goodison, only Liverpool have picked up more points.

Everton are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games, picking up three wins during that time.

The form of several players will also encourage the fans.

Richarlison is starting to thrive from Ancelotti’s management, producing a brilliant performance against Crystal Palace in his last outing.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has also impressed, while Mason Holgate has grasped his chance in the team with both hands.

If anyone was going to stop Arsenal this weekend, Everton are one of the best teams to do so right now.

Arsenal team news vs Everton

Sokratis Papastathopoulos is the only player that didn’t make it through the Olympiacos away win unscathed.

Mikel Arteta confirmed after the game that the defender had twisted his knee towards the end.

Calum Chambers and Kieran Tierney will miss out due to long-term injuries they sustained this season.

Cedric Soares is nearing a return to fitness, but this game will likely come too soon.

Lucas Torreira missed the Olympiacos clash due to illness but could be available this weekend.

Mesut Ozil also missed the trip to Greece, but that was down to personal reasons and will likely be in the squad on Sunday.

Everton team news vs Arsenal

The big news for Everton this weekend is the return of Andre Gomes.

Despite suffering an ankle fracture-dislocation in November, Gomes is already back available for Carlo Ancelotti.

The Italian also hinted recently that Gomes could start on his return to the side.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin remains out with a long-term injury, while there looks to be no other concerns for Everton going into this match.
