The only Premier League match this Sunday is the one taking place at the Goodison Park, where Everton will welcome Arsenal. What should you expect from this game? Lots of excitements, that’s for sure. But, if you want to find out which of these two teams is more likely to win, you will have to read our Everton vs Arsenal prediction and betting tips.
The Toffees are at the 10th place right now, which isn’t a bad place to be considering how tough Premier League has become. Still, their ambitions are a bit higher. This team has a decent squad and a pretty good manager, which is why their fans (and their management) demand more.
Finishing among top 6 is a mission impossible at this point, but ending the season on the 7th place is a realistic possibility. And the reason why getting there is of such importance to them is that it could take them to the Europa League, although this depends on the outcome of the FA Cup as well.
They’re currently trailing by 4 points behind Wolves who are seventh, but there are still 6 rounds left to be played, so the Toffees definitely have a good chance to improve their table standing. The problem is that their schedule isn’t an easy one. They do play against already-relegated Fulham right after the match with Arsenal, but they also need to play against Man United and Tottenham before the end of the season.
But, there’s one really good news for Toffees that we need to mention in our Everton vs Arsenal prediction. Their injury problems are almost completely over. The only player sidelined at the moment is Yerri Mina. In the early stages of the Premier League season, they had over 10 absentees per game on a regular basis.
The Gunners are in a fantastic form, so it’s not a surprise that they’re flying so high on the table at the moment. They’re at the 3rd place, which is something not many of their fans thought was possible before the start of the season. But, will they stay among top 4 and get themselves a place in the Champions League?
It’s hard to say, considering that Tottenham, Man United, and Chelsea have basically the same thing in their minds. Arsenal will have to keep on playing well if they want to make their dreams come true. The good news is that their Premier League schedule doesn’t seem too difficult. Actually, the Everton match seems like one of their toughest challenges until the end of the season.
There is a problem, however. Arsenal are fighting on two fronts at the same time – Premier League and Europa League. Only four days after the game with the Toffees, they’re welcoming Napoli, meaning that their minds might already be set on the Europa League quarterfinal. And that’s the main reason why we won’t suggest putting money on the Gunners in our Everton vs Arsenal betting tips.

Everton vs Arsenal Prediction
The Toffees have been really good at home lately, beating Chelsea in the previous round and playing 0:0 in the Merseyside Derby two weeks earlier. Even though Arsenal is the favorite here, I don’t think their job is gonna be easy. And that’s why it’s better to bet on goals.
