Arsenal vs Everton betting tips: Preview, predictions & odds

Arsenal and Everton square off at the Emirates Stadium on Friday evening amidst the aftermath of the failed establishment of the European Super League; a venture Arsenal was at the forefront of. The Gunners will be desperate to get three points on the books to possibly distract from issues off the pitch and in preparation for their Europa League semi-final date with Villarreal, while Everton looks to establish breathing room between them and an Arsenal outfit that is just three points behind and breathing down their neck.

Betting prediction: Arsenal 1-1 Everton

Just three points separate Arsenal and Everton when they clash at the Emirates on Friday, and the Gunners will be hopeful for a three-point haul in the wake of fan backlash regarding the clubs’ role in the European Super League fiasco. A win will see Arsenal leap over Everton on goal difference, while a victory on the road for the Toffees will give them much-needed breathing room as they look for course correction in their attempt to run down Liverpool, Tottenham, or even West Ham United. A draw could be on the cards here though, with both sides missing key assets, especially Arsenal who are sure to be without Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Martin Ødegaard.

Arsenal vs Everton: Recommended bets

Halftime/Full Time: Draw – Draw

There is not much separating the two sides here, either in the season data or in their recent performances. Arsenal’s chief goal-scoring threats both missing mean their firepower is considerably reduced, while Everton is not sure if Dominic Calvert-Lewin will stand up and be counted if he is back in the side. Everton has not won in five so perhaps there is scope to suggest even more so that a draw is highly probably if Arsenal does not pull out a win on their home patch despite the absentees.

Winning Margin: Score Tie

Under different circumstances, I would probably be included to lean towards Arsenal pulling out a win here given Everton has not won in five matches, but Arsenal being without a handful of vital attacking characters means they may not be fully at the races on Friday. They will still create chances despite it, but Everton should be able to nick a goal and a point on their travels.

Arsenal vs Everton: Match preview

The optics of Arsenal and the 2020/21 campaign have been as Jekyll and Hyde as their performances on the pitch. A run to the semi-finals has been an exciting time for fans around the globe, but the building excitement with a meeting against former boss Unai Emery in a competition he has great success in has been marred by the disastrous attempt by the club to be involved in the formation of the European Super League. And a Thursday meeting between defacto club chief Josh Kroenke and supporters did little to quell the anguish that countless are currently in the midst of.

Kroenke was adamant in his – and Kroenke Sports & Entertainment’s – position that they have no plans to sell the club in the wake of the failed ESL launch, or even under normal circumstances. If the owners have no intentions to sell, then things must change for the better, and soon if bedlam is to be avoided. And if the optics are to change, then the best possible finish in the Premier League should be viewed as a base-level requirement for the club, which includes Arsenal trumping one of their chief competitors this season in Everton as some sort of sign that they have not completely fallen by the wayside and been usurped by the Toffees in some measure.

Winning the Europa League and getting back to the Champions League is also of vital importance, and probably more so especially when finances are taken into account, but the slide suffered on the domestic front is far more telling than chips falling your way in a knockout competition that involves as much luck as it does a club controlling its own destiny. On the back of the events of the last 72-hours, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta must set his team up to be lively, direct, to play at pace, and to go for Everton’s jugular when at the Emirates, even if it will likely revolve around the young players yet again given the absence of both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyand and Alexandre Lacazette, as well as the likelihood that Martin Ødegaard will not be risked.

With planned fan protests to take place Friday evening as well, this makes proceedings even more important. Fans need evidence that the players and the manager want to rectify the current status as best they can. Reversal of fortunes this season in the Premier League would go a very long way to help the unrest come down from the critical mass it seems to have boiled to.

Key Everton piece tied down to future in a show of intent

Though their form has taken a dive by comparison to other parts of the current campaign, Everton has made considerable efforts – mostly successful – at pushing the club forward in the last few seasons. The appointment of Carlo Ancelotti showed ambition while bringing Alisar Usmanov into the fold as a financial avenue to help the club’s infrastructure and back-end improve was wise. To that same end, the appointment of Marcel Brands as Director of Football has paid dividends both in the clubs’ ability to tackle the transfer market, while also improving their academy set up into a more viable avenue for growth both on the pitch or in the checkbook.

With Brands recently being extended in his capacity at Goodison Park for another three years, Everton is not only showing faith in a man and a system that is working but showing their intent to push forward with what has worked rather than trying to overplay their hand and skip one too many steps away. The natural and incremental progression showed by Everton has the Toffees on the right track to be a sustainable re-imagined force in the Premier League that has staying power in or around the top seven, rather than a flash in the pan outfit that is in and out of contention depending on which way the wind blows any given season. Recruitment has been strong even if it was risky, and a gamble such as the deal to take a punt on James Rodríguez showed the value of putting faith in the right calculated risk.

But it is so easy for aside to rest on their laurels or let their guard down when things are running smoothly overall. The crux of it all has been Everton’s willingness to spend to improve their foundations in the immediate situation, while also targeting the long-term as well. But those decisions will only work in conjunction successfully if the right men are in charge on and off the pitch to keep the glue intact. After all the spending, if Everton currently sat 14th in the table, everything could have easily come crashing down like a house of cards. This is where Everton has been smart, with the incremental improvement mentioned previously. There is no need to rush your way up the table rapidly as long as you are still trending up, even if it’s by one place per season.

Considering the Toffees finished 11th last season, then invested in the summer, and are now in with a chance to potentially end up in the top six or seven comes seasons end, Marcel Brands and company have proven themselves worthy of the praise received and continued place at a club that hopes to get back to where it once was in the Premier League during the days of David Moyes.

Arsenal team news vs Everton

Mikel Arteta will be unable to call on four vital players when Arsenal host Everton in a key Premier League fixture.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has recovered after contracting malaria, but will not be called upon on Friday. In addition, Alexandre Lacazette, Kieran Tierney, and David Luiz are all unavailable.

Martin Ødegaard is back in training but will likely be rested with Villarreal on the horizon.

Everton team news vs Arsenal

Carlo Ancelotti only has two selection issues to contend with when Everton travels to the capital, with Abdoulaye Doucouré and Jean-Philippe Gbamin both guaranteed to be out.

The Italian headmaster should be all set to welcome back Dominic Calvert-Lewin, André Gomes, Yerry Mina, Fabian Delph, and Bernard into the fold, with Calvert-Lewin likely to start if fit enough.
