Everton vs Arsenal Betting Tips
Both Everton and Arsenal are currently without managers, although probably not for too long. Everton have reportedly agreed on the terms with Carlo Ancelotti, while Arsenal are expected to hire Mikel Arteta as their new manager. Still, the caretake managers of these two teams will be in charge over the weekend, when these two meet at Goodison Park.
The reason why these two teams are manager-less is that they’ve been dreadful this season. Everton are just three points ahead of Southampton, the closest team from the relegation zone. Arsenal are in the 10th place, but unlike Everton, their form doesn’t seem to be improving.
Since firing Marco Silva, the Toffees won 4 points in two Premier League matches. Arsenal, on the other hand, won the same number of points but in four matches since Unai Emeri has no longer been in charge. The worst thing is that Fredrick Ljungberg-led Arsenal played against some pretty weak teams in those four games, including Norwich and Brighton.
Everton, however, played against two real heavyweights since Duncan Ferguson has been their caretaker manager. They beat Chelsea at home and drew with Manchester United at Old Trafford. Ferguson is the man whom many point out as responsible for getting those points as his 4-4-2 tactic proved destructive for those two attacking sides.
Another attacking side that’s playing against Ferguson’s Everton is Arsenal. This team has scored 24 goals in 17 matches so far and are desperate for points. This means that the Gunners are likely to attack with all they got in this game, which is exactly the kind of footballing style Ferguson likes to play against.

Everton Form and Latest News
The Toffees have improved their performances significantly since Marco Silva’s departure. They now look like a serious club that deserves to be in the top half od the table. Of course, their style of play isn’t too attractive, considering that Ferguson insists on the old-fashioned tactic in which keeping their net safe is the priority.
In the clash against Arsenal, Everton will be without several first-team players. But, the good news for Toffees’ fans is that this team has a really long bench. In fact, other than the teams from the top of the Premier League table, only Everton seems like a team with at least two good players for every position on the pitch.
Arsenal Form and Latest News
Fredrick Ljungberg is the fan-favorite, but this guy is not a great manager. And it seems he doesn’t have ambitions to become one. In fact, the Swede himself has already begged the club management to appoint a permanent manager as soon as possible, which shows that he’s not too confident in his managerial abilities.
Apart from the problem with the manager, Arsenal also have problems with injuries, especially at the back. They could be without three full-backs, namely Tierney, Bellerin, and Kolasinac, although the Bosnian defender might be able to pass the fitness test. Nevertheless, Arsenal’s defense looks very vulnerable at the moment.
