A decent Premier League game to round-off Sunday’s fixtures as Everton travel south to face Arsenal.
Arsenal start the weekend in 10th place on 34 points, while Everton are in 9th with 36 points – but with this being one of the later games this weekend then those actual league positions will probably be different by the time this game kicks-off.
The match betting sees Arsenal on offer at 2.00, the draw 3.60 and Everton also 3.60.
The sides met earlier this season and that ended 0-0, so the neutrals will be hoping that score line won’t be repeated – but if you do think a 0-0 score is on the cards again then you’ll be rewarded at 13.00.
Last season’s repeat fixture ended Arsenal 2-0 Everton, with goals for Lacazette and Aubameyang.
The both teams to score market is a bit of a tricky one as the last three head-to-heads saw both teams ‘not’ score, but they did in 5 of the last 9. For reference only, both teams to score is on offer at 1.61 or both teams ‘not’ to score is 2.20.
The last three clashes all went UNDER 2.5 GOALS – so this might appeal at 2.10.
It’s also been a fixture with a bit of RED CARD history – 3 of the last 7 clashes saw a sending off – 1 for Arsenal and 2 for Everton.
The Gunners have lost just two of their last 11 league games vs Everton, and actually won 7 of their last 10 against the Merseysiders too.
With 5 draws in the last 15 head-to-heads, that’s a fair 33% return so the 3.60 on offer on another stalemate – just like we got this season – has a certain amount of value attached to it.
It’s a tough game to call, as new Everton boss – Ancelotti – has certainly turned things around. The Toffeemen are now unbeaten in their 5 league games. Arsenal are also in Europa League action this week (Thursday) – they have to travel to Greece to face Olmpiakos – so having just a few days to get over that game would certainly favour a fresher Everton.
With that in mind, we think the safer option is to side with the draw at 3.60.
BEST BET: DRAW @3.60
