Arsenal’s late show against Manchester United saw big celebrations as they secured a massive 3-1 win over a big rival and gave them 10 points out of 12 so far this Premier League season. What a rollercoaster of emotions for The Gunners as they were inches away from going 2-1 when VAT came to their rescue.
Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus’ goals in injury time saw The Emirates erupt as they once again got maximum points at home to Manchester United.
Last seasons runners up now head to Goodison Park as the Premier League returns after the International break and Arsenal will be looking to put the foot on the gas and secure another 3 points in the hunt for their first Preimier League trophy in 20 years.
With Jesus back fit now, he may have done enough to start against Everton and providing no injuries in the final internationals, then Saka, Rice and Martinelli will be ready to dominate the game against relegation threatened Everton.
Everton haven’t invested in their squad over the summer and will be hoping that they can replicate last season’s 1-0 win over Arsenal. The Toffees got on the board this season with a 2-2 draw away at Sheffield United, and this followed defeats at home to Fulham, away at Aston Villa and at home to Wolves.
Both home defeats this season came by the scoreline of 0-1 and scoring goals is a problem for Everton, but not by the lack of trying. They were unlucky against Fulham, however didn’t perform anywhere as good against Wolves.
Everton will be hoping Arsenal aren’t on their A game or this could be a long afternoon. Mikel Arteta’s men will be ready to put last seasons defeat behind them and show that Goodison Park can be a good place for them to come and play football.
Bukayo Saka, on the back of winning England’s player of the year, will be looking to add to his goal tally this season and with Eddie Nketiah also playing well, we fear for Everton in this game.
Everton will be very defensive and Arsenal just have to ensure they don’t overplay or leave gaps open on the counter attack, and should they ensure this doesn’ happen, they can look for a nice win on the road here before the Champions League starts.
|Everton||5/1 William Hill|
|Arsenal to win and both teams to score||21/10 William Hill|
Arsenal don’t keep many clean sheets and they will look to attack from the off. With the Champions League starting next week, Arsenal could take their foot of the pedal should they get a couple of goals ahead.
Therefore, our punters.pub bet of the day is Arsenal to win and both teams to score at 21/10 with William Hill.
