What Trueform says for Everton vs Arsenal
Arsenal are fancied to give their Premier League top-four prospects another boost by edging out Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.
The Gunners have won the last four encounters between these teams by an aggregate score of 15-5, including a 5-2 triumph at this venue last season.
We’re backing the Londoners at 23/20 to extend that sequence for our opening Everton vs Arsenal prediction.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton will be buoyed by back-to-back 2-0 wins over Chelsea and West Ham either side of the international break.
First-half goals from Kurt Zouma and Bernard helped the Toffees to beat the Hammers at London Stadium, but they were aided by some poor defending.
Skipper Seamus Coleman told the club’s website: “We want to finish strongly and keep aiming for that seventh place.
“To get 2-0 up at half-time, it was important we held onto it. We did that and now we want to keep building.
“We wanted to be focused and that’s what we did, and we kept the ball well. I think everyone put in a shift and now we need to keep going like this.”
The Toffees have done well over the past month or so, but we can’t get away from that poor head-to-head record against the Gunners.
Looking at the Everton vs Arsenal odds, there is plenty of appeal in 13/5 for an away win and both teams to score.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Keane, Zouma, Digne, Coleman, Gomes, Sigurdsson, Gueye, Bernard, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.
Defender Yerry Mina is Everton’s only major absentee. The Colombia centre-back is likely to be out for several weeks with a hamstring problem.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal stayed on course to finish in the leading quartet with a 2-0 win over Newcastle at Emirates Stadium, where Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette did the damage.
That was a 14th home victory of the season, whereas they have only picked up maximum points on the road five times.
“We need to convince people that we can be consistent away,” admitted Unai Emery. “Our challenge is to be as consistent away as we are at home.”
However, the Gunners have already started to do just that, winning at Huddersfield and drawing with Tottenham in their last couple of Premier League away matches.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang only came on for the last half an hour against Newcastle but his pace is a useful weapon on the road.
The Gabon flyer has netted six times on his travels in this competition and we like 22/1 for him to score first in a 2-1 away win to finish off our Everton vs Arsenal betting tips.
Last Arsenal line-up: Leno, Sokratis, Monreal, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Ramsey, Ozil, Maitland-Niles, Iwobi, Guendouzi, Lacazette.
Arsenal will hand late fitness tests to Laurent Koscielny (foot) and Granit Xhaka (groin), but Ramsey is okay after a minor problem.
Lucas Torreira remains suspended, Danny Welbeck is out with an ankle injury and knee issues continue to sideline Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding.
West Ham 0-2 EVERTON – Kurt Zouma, Bernard
ARSENAL 2-0 Newcastle – Aaron Ramsey, Alexandre Lacazette
Head-to-head: Arsenal 2-0 Everton, Arsenal 5-1 Everton, Everton 2-5 Arsenal, Arsenal 3-1 Everton, Everton 2-1 Arsenal
