Arsenal v Everton prediction & betting tips brought to you by football expert Tom Love.
Arsenal vs Everton Stats
- Incredibly, Arsenal are undefeated in their last 23 home matches against Everton in all competitions.
- Everton have drawn their last 3 games.
- Arsenal have drawn 3 of their last 6 game in all competitions.
Betting Tip: Martinelli to score anytime
It may surprise a few people that Everton are above Arsenal in the league table, in fact the Toffees are 3 points ahead of them with a game in hand on the Gunners. Does that make the odds-on quotes about the hosts too short to be involved with on Friday night? Probably.
Mikel Arteta will likely be without main two strikers in Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang for this one so it could be a very youthful attack for the North Londoners with Gabrielle Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah likely to partner Emile Smith-Rowe and Bukayo Saka in forward areas. It’s been the Brazilian Martinelli, who’s hardly featured until of late, that has excited fans. His direct and aggressive style is something this side has lacked and if his last two league games are anything to go by it won’t be long till he gets a goal. I’m willing to chance a point on him to notch here at 12/5.
Overall, Carlo Ancelotti has done a good job at Everton this season and it’s been a real shame to see their incessant injuries in the midfield department see them tail off slightly in the second half of the season. They have, however, lost just thrice on the road all season and just once in their last 11 which was at Stamford Bridge. It’s a record that demands respect and I expect them to get a result here.
Betting Tip: Draw
At the prices it’s the draw that looks most attractive at 12/5. Despite Everton’s commendable road record they are struggling for wins of late but Ancelotti has the nous and experience to get a point at the Emirates.
Arsenal vs Everton Odds
Both teams are coming off the back of a draw but the bookies see Arsenal as the favourite with best odds of 20/21.
