Arsenal F.C. and Everton F.C. face off in a Premier League showdown on Sunday at Emirates Stadium. Kick-off is scheduled for 11:30 AM Eastern Time.
Everton currently sits in 10th place in the Premier League with 36 points, but they are only four points behind fifth-place, so almost everything is still in front of them with a strong finish.
Everton comes into this match playing some strong soccer, having won two matches in a row, and grabbing at least a point in each of their last five. The last loss for Everton in Premier League play came on January 1st against Manchester City.
In Everton’s last match against Crystal Palace, it was a goal in the 18th minute by Bernard that opened the scoring. Crystal Palace tied the game with a 51st-minute goal, but Everton was able to put two more goals in the back of the net before the game was over for the easy victory.
Each of the last two games for Everton the possession has been around 50 percent for each team, but they were able to take advantage of their chances.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin has put 11 goals in the back of the net for Everton, which is enough to lead the team.
Arsenal currently sits with 34 points which is good enough for 11th place, but a win in this game can move them into a tie with Everton.
Arsenal is coming off a game on Thursday in the Europa League where they were able to come away with a 1-0 victory. Alexandre Lacazette was able to put a goal in the back of the net in the 81st minute, and that was enough for the victory.
Arsenal’s last Premier League game was against Newcastle last Sunday, and it was a dominating performance putting four goals in the back of the net on the way to an easy victory.
Everton and Arsenal faced off in late December and the two teams played to a 0-0 draw.
Arsenal played a mid-week game in the Europa League, and that is going to have an impact on this game. Everton has proven they don’t need to control possession to win, and they are going to find the back of the net a few times to come away with a victory.
