This weekend’s Premier League action continues into Monday as we conclude the ‘week 15’ action with Everton hosting Arsenal at Goodison Park.

The sides have met 200 times in the league and with Arsenal winning just under half of those (98), then the Londoners will fancy their chances of getting something here.

The match betting backs that up with Arsenal on offer at 2.05, the Draw 3.40 and Everton 3.50.

Everton boss, Rafa Benitez, has also failed to get his side going this season – the Toffees are sitting just in the lower half of the table and already have more league defeats this season than wins.

On a plus though Everton to have a solid record against Arsenal recently – last season in the league they took 6 points off the Gunners and have tasted defeat just once in their last 5 when facing them.

In fact, Everton have also lost only two on the last 10 repeat fixtures too. With this in mind, the 1.72 on Everton/Draw in the ‘double chance’ market would make a certain amount of appeal.

However, these sides are also no strangers to draws – 28% of the last 18 clashes have ended with the honours shared.

We do tend to see goals though – 10 of the last 16 (63%) meetings have gone OVER 2.5 GOALS, while both teams have scored in 7 of the last 12. 3+ goals in the game can be backed at 2.00, with both sides to net at 1.80.

It can also be a fiery affair, which is supported with 4 RED CARDS in the last 11 meetings.

The scoring markets for Arsenal are dominated by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has scored 3 times in the last 7 head-to-heads – he’s on offer at 5.00 (1st) or 2.30 (anytime). Another Arsenal player that’s been doing well in front of goal this season is midfielder – Emile Smith-Rowe (pictured). He’s at 12.00 (1st) or 4.75 (anytime).

Looking at the Everton players, they are likely to still be without main striker – Calvert-Lewin – so it may be left to Brazilian – Richarlison – at 8.50 (1st) or 3.50 (anytime) to get their goals.

Overall, it’s a game that Arsenal will fancy their chances of winning, especially as Everton don’t look their strongest now, but with home advantage and a decent record in front of their fans when facing Arsenal, then the 1.72 on Everton/Draw in the ‘Double Chance’ market is how we are going to play this one.
