Everton vs Arsenal 22 October 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Everton will be at home at Goodison Park this weekend as the Toffees take on Arsenal in the English Premier League. Both teams are desperate to get three points and as a result I am expecting a great game of football.

Everton lost midweek to Lyon and with that loss, the manager is in talks of losing his job. This is not ideal for a club that spent big over the summer transfer window. This side has failed to replace Lukaku and their new signings are not playing well yet. With the talent in the side, I think they will eventually become a good side but at the moment, they are not.

On the other side of the coin, Arsenal are also in a spot of bother after they lost to Watford last weekend. This would not have pleased the manager or the fans and as a result the Gunners will look to make it up with a win away from home in this game. The Gunners played in the Europa League this week but they should still be fresh as most of the first team players were rested.

With all that in mind, I am going to predict that Arsenal will win this game. The Gunners are the better side at the moment and they have a big reason to try to win in this game. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a decent price on this bet and as a result that is the best option. Other than that, the over 2.5 goals is also a decent bet since neither defense is in good form at the moment.
