Premier League preview and odds: Arsenal vs. Everton

October 24, 2015 17:30pm – Emirates Stadium

Premier League

Arsenal will be looking for their fourth straight win in the Premier League when they welcome Everton to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening.

Gunners on a roll

Arsenal are in a good place right now - they followed three straight wins in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich in the midweek Champions’ League group match, and will go into this weekend’s game against Everton full of confidence.

In their last three league games they`ve scored eleven goals and conceded just two, leaving them second place in the table just two points behind pace-setters Manchester City.

The Gunner’s recent good form will be bring welcome relief to boss Arsene Wenger who was heavily criticised in many quarters for failing to bring in a striker during the summer transfer window. The Frenchman`s decision to stick with his current players now seems to be paying off with Alexis Sanchez in particular grabbing the plaudits for his dazzling displays.

Everton sunk last time out

Things have not been quite so rosy for Everton who have managed just one win in their last four league matches. Most recently, they followed up a draw at home to derby foes Liverpool with a home defeat to northwest rivals Manchester United.

That loss left them tied on points with Liverpool and Southampton with a 13-point tally. Despite their mid-table habitat, the Toffees have only lost two games all season. However, they only have three wins to their name having shared the points on four occasions.

Team news

Aaron Ramsey has joined a list of familiar names in the North London treatment room that includes Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Danny Welbeck.

Meanwhile, Everton are hoping that Tom Cleverly can recover in time for the trip to London although at the current time that seems doubtful. Muhamed Besic is missing with a hamstring injury along with long-term absentees Leighton Baines, Tony Hibbert and Steven Pienaar.

Betting odds and tips

Arsenal’s only danger this week will be feeling overconfident following their impressive win against Bayern Munich. Their visitors have not lost a game on the road this season, although they have yet to visit a top six team.

The home win can be backed at a best price of 4/9 with several bookies including Betfred. The Merseyside team have only conceded two away goals this season so don’t expect a big score-line. A 2-0 win for Arsenal is available at 8/1 with Betvictor.

In the anytime goal score market, current hotshot Alexis Sanchez can be backed at a decent 13/10 with Bet365.
