Everton v Arsenal betting preview: Can Arsene Wenger’s side extend winning run?
Arsenal will be looking to record a third successive Premier League victory at Everton on Tuesday night
Arsenal will return to Premier League action on Tuesday night when the Gunners travel to Everton on Tuesday night.
Arsene Wenger’s have been in superb form in recent weeks in the Premier League and the Champions League. Arsenal are unbeaten in the English top flight since a 4-3 loss to Liverpool in their opening fixture of the 2016-17 season.
The north London side were 5-1 winners against West Ham United in their last away game in the English top flight. Alexis Sanchez scored a second-half hat-trick at the London Stadium to underline his status as one of the Premier League’s best players.
The Gunners secured top spot in Group A on Tuesday night thanks to their 4-1 win against Basel in the Champions League. Lucas Perez netted a hat-trick in Switzerland while Alex Iwobi netted his first Champions League goal.
Unsurprisingly, Arsenal made it three successive victories after a 3-1 win against Stoke City at the Emirates Stadium. Goals from Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott and Iwobi cancelled out Charlie Adam’s opener.
It won’t come as a surprise that Arsenal are favourites with 888sport to beat Everton on Tuesday night given the Toffees’ miserable run of form in the Premier League.
Ronald Koeman’s side lost 3-2 to Watford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon despite Romelu Lukaku’s goals either side of half-time. Everton have only managed to register one victory in their last six Premier League games.
In fact, the Merseyside outfit have lost three games and drawn twice. The Toffees haven’t beaten Arsenal since Steven Naismith and Lukaku scored at Goodison Park, while Mikel Arteta netted an own goal against his former club.
Arsenal have won three of the last four meetings between these Premier League rivals, including a 2-0 win on Merseyside last season thanks to goals from Danny Welbeck and Iwobi.
Arsenal are three points behind leaders Chelsea in the Premier League title race after the Blues were 1-0 winners against West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The Gunners are looking to win the Premier League crown for the first time since 2003-04 when Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira inspired the north London outfit to title glory.
