Arsenal vs Everton| Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The sixth round of the English Premier League will be closed with one fantastic game. Arsenal is hosting Everton at Etihad stadium, in a clash where both teams just need to win. The Gunners are at the seventh position, with nine points from 5 games, while Everton has three less at the position No.10.
Hosts managed to overcome difficulties from the beginning of the season, and they clinched a win in the last round, away from home against Newcastle, 1:2. Meanwhile, the Toffees experienced their first defeat of the season, when West Ham surprised them at Goodison, 1:3.
After two losses in the first two games, Unai Emery managed to regain the control on the team, and pulled his boys from the negative spiral. The Gunners had three wins since, and they netted at least two goals in each of them. It appears that they finally caught the rhythm regarding their offense. However, the defensive line is still vulnerable, because Arsenal allowed at least one goal in every Premiership match since the season started. This is the biggest weakness of this assembly, and they need to do something about it if they intend to reach the Champions League this year. The man who needs to snap out is Mesut Ozil. The German midfielder is the key of any success in Arsenal, and if he plays well, then the Gunners fans shouldn’t worry about a thing.
No Richarlison, no fun. This should be the motto of the Toffees. The Brazilian international missed the match against the West Ham, and that was immediately felt on the pitch. Everton’s attack was simply too dull to do anything against the Hammers. We have to be honest and say that Jordan Pickford was also the man who influenced the most on this result. The English national team goalkeeper hasn’t been seen that bad in a while. As we said, this was the first defeat of the season, but what most of you didn’t know is that this was the 10th straight event in which Everton allowed at least one goal. Also, in the past nine, eight finished with both teams to score and with over 2.5 scores, which makes this club excellent when betting on high efficiency.
