Arsenal vs Everton 101 Great Goals prediction: Arsenal 3-1 Everton
It wasn’t an ideal start to the season for Arsenal but they have since hit form and now face an Everton side who have some huge defensive problems.
The Gunners are in free-scoring form and have scored 11 goals within their last four Premier League games.
Meanwhile, Everton are yet to keep a clean sheet this season in all competitions and are shipping goals for fun.
However, the Blues do look to be a threat going forward under Marco Silva.
Massive odds on Arsenal to beat Everton!
Arsenal vs Everton: Who will win?
Arsenal go into the game as very heavy favourites, no surprises there.
They can be found at odds of 4/9 while Everton are priced at 11/2.
With Everton’s weak defence and both sides strong attacks, BTTS looks almost inevitable.
Both teams to score and Arsenal to win is priced at 13/8 while you can get BTTS and Everton to win at odds of 9/1.
A BTTS draw is priced at 9/2.
There are also some very interesting odds in the goalscorer market.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the favourite to score first at odds of 12/5.
If you fancy Auba to score anytime and Arsenal to win 1-0, that bet is priced at 18/1.
Strike partner Alexandre Lacazette is priced at 4/1 to score first.
What could be worth your money is a bet on an Everton player to score first.
The returning Richarlison is priced at a huge 12/1 to score the first goal of the game.
Theo Walcott is priced at the same odds on his return to the Emirates.
Considering Arsenal shipped two goals against Cardiff, it is certainly possible.
Arsenal vs Everton match preview
It was a less than ideal start to life at Arsenal for Unai Emery but the dust is now starting to settle.
After losses against Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal have gone on a four-game winning streak.
They beat West Ham 3-1 before a 3-2 win over Cardiff, even if the latter wasn’t a very pretty performance.
A 2-1 win over Newcastle came next before Arsenal kicked off their Europa League campaign with a win on Thursday.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is hitting form at the right time with a goal against Cardiff and two in the Europa League on Thursday.
Alexandre Lacazette may have missed out on the European clash, but will likely return to the line-up to face Everton and that could spell problems for the Toffees.
With the attacking firepower that Arsenal will likely have on show, Marco Silva’s side will struggle to get anywhere close to a clean sheet.

Can Everton finally find the right defensive recipe?
While Everton fans got what they wanted with a new attacking style of football after Sam Allardyce, they didn’t quite expect this.
Toffees fans wanted Allardyce out for his defensive style of football, among other reasons, and he was replaced by Marco Silva.
Despite Silva starting all of his previous jobs with a bang, he has failed to have the desired effect this time around.
Everton may have scored in every game they have played but they’ve only won one game so far this Premier League season.
The Blues have looked strong going forward, especially after the purchase of Richarlison.
The Brazilian had initially made a great start to life with the Toffees before being sent off against Bournemouth.
However, he will return against Arsenal this weekend and will provide Everton with another outlet in attack.
It is their defensive performances that will worry Toffees fans going into the game this weekend.
They have failed to keep a clean sheet so far this season and shipped three goals against a West Ham side who hadn’t won a single point this season before the game.
Their problem stems from central defence, with Phil Jagielka and Michael Keane failing to impress and Mason Holgate’s partnership with Kurt Zouma needing work.
While Yerry Mina could start the game, Everton will almost certainly be a liability at the back and Arsenal will likely exploit that.
You would be pretty naive to bet against Arsenal scoring at least one goal.
Arsenal team news vs Everton
Following Bernd Leno’s start in the Europa League, Petr Cech will likely feature this weekend.
Same goes for Hector Bellerin after Stephan Lichtsteiner started in their Europa League clash on Thursday.
Alexandre Lacazette will likely come back into the squad after sitting out that game too.
Sead Kolasinac, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Carl Jenkinson and Laurent Koscielny all remain on the sidelines through injury.
Everton team news vs Arsenal
The most notable team news for Everton is the return of Richarlison.
He has spent the past three games suspended after a red card against Bournemouth.
Summer signing Yerry Mina has been training with the club this week and could be set to start the game.
Tom Davies could also return to the starting eleven.
