Arsenal vs Everton: Predictions
Domestically it has been an exceptionally underwhelming campaign for Arsenal, but Mikel Arteta has the opportunity to leapfrog his former club Everton on Friday and move into eighth with a win at the Emirates Stadium. However, The Toffees are fighting desperately to keep pace in the European race.
Unless The Gunners can mount an extraordinary end-of-season run then their best route into continental football next season could be via the Europa League backdoor, but even that would take a monumental effort to bring home the top prize given some of the quality left in the competition, not least Manchester United.
As such, Arteta will be looking to finish the domestic campaign as strong as possible to just relax some of the pressure building on his shoulders if they do fall flat in the Europa League, and that means bouncing back from a late draw with Fulham last week and putting in a serious performance against Everton.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side started the season like a house on fire but that form has just placated in recent weeks and they risk falling further away from the European hunt unless the Italian can mastermind a turnaround, with the club currently caught in the riptide of a five-game winless run.

Arsenal vs Everton: Match Stats
Goals are usually a given where both these sides are concerned. For the hosts, they have kept just three clean sheets at home in the Premier League this season, with only Everton, Sheffield United (two each) and Newcastle (one) keeping fewer. In fact, The Gunners have conceded the first goal in each of their last four Premier League matches at the Emirates, which will certainly give the travelling Evertonians a glimmer of optimism.
One player who could have a huge say in this contest is the in-form Gylfi Sigurdsson, who notched a brace against his former club Tottenham last week, and has now been involved in five goals across his last seven Premier League games (three goals, two assists), as many as in his previous 23 in the competition.

Having walked away with maximum reward over the festive period at Goodison Park, Everton will now be looking to complete their first league double over Arsenal since the 1985/86 season. That winter triumph came courtesy of a Rob Holding own goal and a Yerry Mina second, and Ancelotti could really do with another result to stay clinging to the coattails of those above them.
