The Line: Arsenal -225 / Draw +400 / Everton +650 -- Over/Under: 2.5
Arsenal are set to play Everton at home at the Emirates Stadium.
Everton had a horrible weekend as they lost to West Ham United at home. The Toffees have struggled for consistency this season and that has caused major problems. As it currently stands, Everton are 10th of the ladder but they could easily be much higher if the players had more discipline on the pitch. In the last two games, Everton drew against Huddersfield Town and lost to West Ham. Both of those results should have ended in wins for Everton and the team will know that they must get more points if they wish to have a successful season. This is set to be a tough challenge since they are playing away from home against a top team in Arsenal.
On the other side of the coin, Arsenal will look to continue their great form. The Gunners started the season poorly as the team lost their first few matches but things seem to have changed to the side as they are now winning with ease. Arsenal won in the Europa League midweek with the likes of Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in exceptional form. This team is starting to adjust to life under Unai Emery as manager and there are many positives at the club. With the fans behind the team and the opposition struggling, I see this as a great chance for Arsenal to win another game.
When these two teams met last season, Arsenal won on both occasions with the last meeting ending 5-2 in favor of the Gunners.
All in all, I see this match ending in one result and that is a win for Arsenal. Everton have struggled in recent weeks and it is hard to see the Toffees turning their form around away from home against Arsenal. With the team playing well and at the Emirates, I am going to pick Arsenal to win.
