Betting Tip: Arsenal & Under 4.5 Match Goals

Plainly put, Arsenal’s top-four hopes are in tatters after losing their last two matches, one of which being to Tottenham in the North London Derby. They followed that up with a loss away to Newcastle United but now they return to the Emirates, an arena where they’ve dropped points in just six of their 18 league outings.

Everton avoided the drop with a game to spare after an enthralling comeback at home to Crystal Palace during the week. They found themselves 2-0 down but showed grit and determination which resulted in them winning 3-2, meaning they can relax on the final day of the Premier League season.

Mikel Arteta will be wanting to ensure his side return to winning ways here as their only hope of achieving a top four finish is by winning and hoping Tottenham Hotspur lose away to relegated Norwich City.

I can see Everton easing up somewhat as their fears of relegation have subsided and it was an emotional night at Goodison Park. They’ll look to frustrate the hosts but they’ve been poor away from home, failing to win 15 of their last 16 road trips. I don’t see them winning here and I’ll lean towards Arsenal achieving victory with fewer than five match goals being scored.

Betting Tip: Arsenal Win to Nil

I like the price on Arsenal achieving a victory by way of a clean sheet here. I mentioned above that I feel Everton might ease up and that’s part of the thinking. The ‘Toffees’ have lost seven of their last nine away matches and given that they’ve only just guaranteed their survival, I don’t see the visitors taking to the pitch desperate to secure points.

Arsenal have failed to score just three times on home soil this campaign and those matches were against Chelsea, Burnley and Liverpool. I’d be exceptionally surprised if they didn’t hit the back of the net here considering they need to do their part and win the match to stand any chance of snatching a place in the top four.

The scenes at Goodison Park highlighted the relief amongst the staff and fans alike after their triumph against Crystal Palace. But after an immense high often comes a low and I’ll side with an Arsenal win to nil for a point.
