After a disappointing defeat to Manchester United, the Gunners will be looking to get back on schedule as they look ahead to their Monday night fixture at Goodison Park.
Arsenal took an early lead against the Red Devils in a bizarre turn of events, Manchester United player Fred ‘injured’ goalkeeper David de Gea which left him on the floor which in turn left Emile Smith-Rowe to score in an open net.
Everton have picked up the fewest points in the league over the last eight games, with only two points to show for their recent struggles.
It seems like Everton have had a constant flow of injuries this season, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Yerry Mina still both out, plus an additional four players not able to play, we expect to see yet another weakened Everton side on Monday night.
Everton have a good record against Arsenal at Goodison Park, a record of W3-D1-L1 shows that the Toffee’s have a shining light in getting out of this slump that they are currently in.
There has been an average of 2.8 match goals over the course of those games with a 0-0 stalemate on one occasion and seven goals in one game being the two outliers.
Arsenal To Win
Both teams have managed to score in three out of the five outings at Goodison Park, and with that outcome currently floating just below evens you could find some value in this market.
However, since their injury crisis Everton have only managed to score three goals in the last four matches they’ve played at Goodison Park, and just five in their last seven games, whilst conceding 16.
Hale-Ender Emile Smith-Rowe has been on good form as of late, he is the highest goal contributor for Arsenal this season with seven goals and assists and Gabonese striker Pierre Emerick-Aubamyang right behind him with six, although many have questioned his decision making in the final third and his lack of poise in front of goal, something Arsenal fans were so used to seeing in seasons past so there’s every chance Alex LAcazette may come into the starting lineup for this one.
We expect Mikel Arteta’s men to get the victory here with Everton’s ever-mounting injury list and them lacking any real identity at the moment.
Despite the fact that they have a good record against Arsenal, they’re certainly low on confidence and without any real notable goal-threat, it’s difficult to see them coming away with anything here.
