Premier League: Everton vs Arsenal preview


Arsenal will be looking to extend their 14-match unbeaten streak in the Premier League when they face Everton at Goodison Park on Tuesday evening. Arsenal won both matches against Everton last season, 2-0 away and 2-1 at home. The Gunners have a great recent record against the Toffees, they won three of the last four matches and have not lost since 2014.

Everton are in trouble, they have not won in five matches and dropped to ninth place as a result. Last weekend they lost 3-2 at Watford after having held a 1-0 lead thanks to a goal from Romelu Lukaku. The last time they won a match was all the way back in October, when they beat West Ham 2-0 at home. Muhamed Besic, Matthew Pennington and Yannick Bolasie are injured, while Arouna Kone might also miss out.

Arsenal are still unbeaten away from home this season, they have not lost a match in the Premier League since the opening day defeat against Liverpool. They have lost just two matches in all competitions so far and have won their last three league matches. Last weekend they eased past Stoke City, it ended 3-1 after the Gunners fought back from one goal down. Chuba Akpom, Santi Cazorla, Mathieu Debuchy and Yaya Sanogo are still injured, while Per Mertesacker and Danny Welbeck have recovered but are not ready for a full match yet.

Probable line-ups:

Everton: Stekelenburg - Coleman, Funes Mori, Williams, Baines - Barry, Gueye - Mirallas, Barkley, Lennon - Lukaku

Arsenal: Cech - Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal - Coquelin, Xhaka - Walcott, Ozil, Iwobi - Sanchez

My prediction: Arsenal to win 2-1.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Everton win - 4.50
Draw - 3.80
Arsenal - 1.85

    It was an epic game in the end between Everon and Arsenal but the home side managed to win after two fine headers. Arsenal had their chances but they missed them which have cost them at least a point.
    Everton performance have been much improved from they shown lately and I think their win was deserved in the end, after all there's a bit of luck needed and when you in such long streak without a win as they were comes a night when all going your way.
    Jagielka was sent off in the end and will miss the Merseyside derby which would probably be a significant loss for Everton.
