Everton faces Arsenal on Saturday, December 19th at Goodison Park for an English Premier League match.
Everton is coming off a 2-0 win over Leicester City in its last match on the road on December 16th. Everton was able to pick up the important three points over a formidable club on the road, which is what the Premier League is all about. Everton has now won back-to-back matches and has earned points in four of its last five matches overall as well. Everton started the year red hot but cooled off a bit as the season moved on. Now, Everton is heating up yet again and finds itself with a 7-2-4 record. That record is good enough for 5th place in the Premier League standings currently. Everton has scored 23 goals and has conceded 18 goals to its opponents, giving the club a +5 goal differential so far this season.
Arsenal is coming off a 1-1 draw to Southampton in its last match at home on December 16th. Arsenal has struggled in Premier League play recently, despite excelling in UEFA Europa League competition. Arsenal's last Premier League win came at the beginning of November over Manchester United on the road. Since then, Arsenal has taken a few tough upset losses and draws to weak clubs, such as a 1-0 loss to Burnley. Arsenal is now 4-2-7 this season, which is good for 15th place in the Premier League standings. Arsenal never wants to be outside the top-10, let alone sit in 15th place. Things will need to change if Arsenal wants to avoid an embarrassing season and perhaps even relegation if things got out of hand.
The last time Everton and Arsenal met was on February, 23rd of 2020. In that match, Arsenal was able to defeat Everton by the final score of 3-2 at home.
There is nothing that shows me that Arsenal is going to re-group and win this match on the road. Everton has been in great form and Arsenal is the opposite. I will take Everton to win this match outright.
