Arsenal Desperate for Three Points

Arsene Wenger Arsenal Premier League

Arsenal was flirting with the possibility of a Premier League title just a couple of weeks ago, but while they still have a chance, they have made it really difficult on themselves taking just one point from their previous three Premier League games. Arsenal will look to stay on pace with the Leicester’s and Tottenham’s of the world with an away win at Everton Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Everton has five losses in their previous seven home games in the Premier League.
  • The reverse fixture was a 2-1 Arsenal win back on October 24.
  • Arsenal has scored at least two goals in each of its last four games versus Everton.

Everton is a slight +150 home favorite at online book Bet365 while Arsenal is +170 and the Draw is +240. In totals markets, OVER 2.5 goals is -143 while UNDER 2.5 goals is +110.

Arsenal, who was in the driver’s seat atop the table earlier this season, is presently 11 points back of Leicester at the top of the league entering the weekend. With nine games remaining, Arsenal still has a chance, but it would take something close to a miracle to win the league. Furthermore, the Gunners have been eliminated from the FA Cup (thanks to Waford) and Champions League (courtesy Barcelona) so now they can focus solely on league fixtures. Still, it looks like it’s going to be a trophy-less season for Arsenal supporters.

Everton enters the weekend 12th in the league and well back of the European spots. The Toffees can seemingly score at will, but their issues are solely on the defensive end. They’ve scored the fourth-most goals in the league (51) and have conceded the joint-highest amount of goals (39) with Chelsea of anyone 12th or above.

This could be a game with goals as there have been OVER 2.5 goals in six of Everton’s previous seven matches in the Premier League.
