Everton vs. Arsenal: Premier League – Match Preview

Everton will be looking to increase the pressure on Mikel Arteta when Arsenal travel to Goodison Park on Saturday.

Everton recorded an impressive 2-0 win away at Leicester City in the week, with goals from Richarlison and Mason Holgate.

The win was their second consecutive, having beaten Chelsea at Goodison Park last weekend, with Gylfi Sigurdsson scoring the winner.

Arsenal ended a run of four consecutive home losses with a 1-1 draw at home to Southampton on Wednesday evening.

Theo Walcott opened the scoring against his former side, however Pierre Emerick Aubameyang earned the Gunners a much needed point.

Team news
Seamus Coleman and James Rodriguez are closing in on returns, however it is unclear whether they will feature here.

Jordan Pickford was on the bench against Leicester City, however Carlo Ancelotti confirmed he would return.

Gabriel was sent off in the draw with Southampton and will miss out here meaning David Luiz is likely to come into the side.

Hector Bellerin is back from a ban of his own, however there is no guarantees he replaces Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Expected starting XI’s
Everton (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Holgate, Mina, Keane, Godfrey; Gomes, Doucoure; Iwobi, Sigurdsson, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin
Arsenal (3-4-3): Leno; Holding, Luiz, Tierney; Maitland-Niles, Elneny, Ceballos, Saka; Pepe, Nketiah, Aubameyang

Predictions

Everton have won just three of their last 28 matches against Arsenal

Correct Score: 1-1
There have been under 2.5 goals in both of Everton & Arsenal’s last four league games

Anytime Goalscorer: Richarlison
Since returning from suspension Richarlison has been impressive and he will fancy his chances against a poor Arsenal side
