Current form — Everton v. Arsenal
Everton extend loosing run.
Results have been abysmal lately for Everton, who will be desperate to get a positive result in their upcoming fixture. Everton have had to endure a tough spell in their last 3 matches from which, they have nothing to show. They were beaten 3-0 by Manchester City, before Brentford ran out 1-0 winners. A third defeat on the trot followed against Liverpool, who came out 4-1 winners.
Arsenal keep target in sight.
Arsenal will be out to extend their fine run of results lately. It is all or nothing with Arsenal at the moment and sadly for them it has been more "nothing" than "all". They first went down 4-0 in an encounter with Liverpool, to which they replied by beating Newcastle 2-0. Their latest encounter once again had them on the losing side when they lost 3-2 against Manchester United.
It has the look of an equal match up in theory, Arsenal, however, still represent slightly better value in our opinion than Everton. Bookies have a home win priced at 3.40, with 2.10 for the away win. Adding a draw to the accumulator will get you odds 3.50. It all comes down to your preferred betting strategy.
