Reason for Everton vs Arsenal Predictions
Everton moved up to fifth in the Premier League after winning at Leicester City on Wednesday. They bid to make it three straight league wins when hosting Arsenal, who is down in 15th. Everton has had an up and down season but is in one of their up phases at present. The last week has seen them beat Chelsea 1-0 at home and then win 2-0 at Leicester. The clean sheets will please Carlo Ancelotti as their only other one before this week was in the opening 1-0 win at Tottenham. Everton had lost to both Manchester United and Leeds United before beating Chelsea 1-0 last weekend, making it three home league wins for the season. Only two goals have been scored in the previous two home league games at Goodison Park. Bernard is a great player, and with one move, he can create problems for the opponent. He has excellent dribbling, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. Top scorer Dominic Calvert-Levin played 36 games, scored 13 goals last season, and this youngster uses every opportunity to endanger the opponent, and a great career is ahead of him.
Arsenal came from behind to get a home point against Southampton on Wednesday evening. That ended a run of four straight home losses, but they are still only five points above the bottom three at the time of writing this preview. The Gunners haven’t won any of their last six league games with just one win in the previous nine. Scoring is a major problem for them, with just three scored in the last nine Premier League games, and one of those was a penalty. Only one of their last five away league games has ended in victory, a 1-0 win at Old Trafford. Their only other away league victory this season has been at Fulham in September. Three of the last five on their travels have been lost, and just two goals scored. It has been a tough fixture list, though, with games including Liverpool and Manchester City. Four of their last five away league fixtures have had under 2.5 goals scored in them. Nicolas Pepe showed why he was brought in, he has good dribbling, speed is his advantage, he is the starter in every game, and last season he scored several important goals. Ainsley Maitland-Niles shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, although both sides haven’t been too efficient so far in the season.
