With every Premier League fixture that passes we get further away from Romelu Lukaku scoring 25 to carry Everton a year ago. Now they couldn’t buy a goal if it came 50% off, and are looking to avoid a loss to 6th Place Arsenal that would send them to rock bottom.

Odds

Everton – (3.80)

Arsenal – (2.05)

Draw – (3.60)

Goal Over/Under – 2.5
Over – (1.80)
Under – (2.00)

Both Teams to Score
Yes – (1.70)
No – (2.05)

It’s never a great sign when the odds of a draw are higher than a team’s odds of winning.

It is absolutely wild that through 8 matchups Everton has only scored 5 goals, with elder statesmen Wayne Rooney notching 3 and Oumar Niasse netting 2. This against their 13 goals against really paints a simple picture of why they are at 2-2-4. And yet, they still sit within striking distance of a decent table spot, only 2 games back of jumping from 16th to 5th, so there’s no concern that they may throw in the towel against a middling club like Arsenal.

Speaking of, Arsenal is riding an impressive wave right now but has yet to be seen whether they’re for real or not. They sit at 4-1-3 on the year with a +2 goal difference, with a record of 3-1-1 over their last 4; it’s important to note though, that those 3 wins came against the 10th, 14th, and 19th place clubs in the league table.

So over the first half of the season, nothing separated these two clubs in terms of poor play, but now Arsenal is a force to be reckoned with? This seems like the perfect fixture to find out.

Though they were excited to get Alexis Sanchez back on the pitch a month ago against Liverpool, the former goal phenom has yet to notch a goal through 5 matches. Their offense seems to move through Alexandre Lacazette and Danny Welbeck, who have 4 and 3 goals respectively. While I don’t think they deserve to be in a better table position for it, it does speak to the talent on the club that such a great player like Sanchez can take a back seat to the squad’s youth.

Prediction

Everton 0 – 1 Arsenal

This could very well end in a draw, with both clubs giving up plenty of goals on the season. But considering Everton just can’t figure out how to score, the edge goes to Arsenal.

Look for Arsenal (2.05), Under 2.5 goals (2.00), and No on both teams scoring (2.05) all to hit, to earn back little over double your bet.
