What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Everton
Arsenal have beaten Everton at home for the past four Premier League seasons and should extend that hoodoo, judged on our Trueform ratings.
The Gunners will be seeking a fourth straight top-flight triumph this weekend, whereas Everton are coming off a disappointing defeat to West Ham on Merseyside.
Marco Silva’s side have netted in every match this term, though, so 3/2 for a home victory and both teams to score makes sense for our first Arsenal vs Everton prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal did us a favour when prevailing 2-1 at Newcastle, as we landed a trio of successful tips on that game, including a 31/4 correct score pay-out.
Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil were on target as the Gunners overcame a testing first half to follow up previous wins over West Ham and Cardiff.
Lucas Torreira’s introduction at the interval helped Unai Emery’s team to find a better rhythm as they claimed back-to-back away victories in the league for the first time since May 2017.
Emery said: “The challenge is to have better and better performances, to be more competitive and to have a lot of chances to win.
“We are happy with the two away victories, but we need to continue because we need to improve and be more competitive.”
The Gunners have looked very good going forward but are still coming to terms with new tactics at the back.
Last Arsenal EPL line-up: Cech, Bellerin, Papastathopoulos, Monreal, Mustafi, Ramsey, Ozil, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Emery made eight alterations for Thursday’s 4-2 Europa League win over Vorskla Poltava but the likes of Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette will be pushing for returns.
Lucas Torreira is expected to be fine despite taking a knock to the knee during the game, but Laurent Koscielny (Achilles), Sead Kolasinac (knee), Ainsley Maitland-Niles (leg) and Carl Jenkinson (ankle) remain absent.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton started the season off well, beating Southampton at home in between away draws at Wolves and Bournemouth, but the last couple of Premier League displays have been a let-down.
The Toffees were held to a 1-1 stalemate at Goodison Park by Huddersfield and then went down 3-1 to a West Ham side which had lost all four previous top-flight fixtures.
Gylfi Sigurdsson’s header gave Everton hope against the Hammers but they deservedly fell to a first defeat of the campaign.
“We didn’t perform in our level to win this match,” said Silva. “In this level, you cannot make mistakes like we made.
“After the first mistake we made, we didn’t react like we had to react and it looks like the game changed completely and we lost our confidence.”
The Merseyside outfit conceded 10 goals in two games against the Gunners last season and are sure to be put under plenty of pressure once more.
Let’s finish off our Arsenal vs Everton betting tips by taking 5/4 for the hosts to net at least three times on this occasion.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Holgate, Zouma, Digne, Kenny, Sigurdsson, Gueye, Schneiderlin, Walcott, Tosun, Calvert-Lewin.
Everton’s joint top-scorer Richarlison returns to the squad following suspension.
Defender Yerry Mina could come into contention for his debut after a full week of training following a foot problem.
Fellow centre-back Phil Jagielka should be ready to train with the squad again next week following a knee injury but Andre Gomes (hamstring) and Seamus Coleman (foot) remain sidelined.
ARSENAL 4-2 Vorskla – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2), Danny Welbeck, Mesut Ozil
EVERTON 1-3 West Ham – Gylfi Sigurdsson
Head-to-head: Arsenal 5-1 Everton, Everton 2-5 Arsenal, Arsenal 3-1 Everton, Everton 2-1 Arsenal, Everton 0-2 Arsenal, Arsenal 2-1 Everton
