The Gunners are looking for the first Premier League win since November 1, but it won’t be easy against the Toffees at Goodison Park on Saturday. Here is our Everton vs Arsenal Preview for this Premier League encounter.
Everton Recent Form & Team News
Rejuvenated Everton have secured consecutive Premier League victories against top-five finishers from 2019/20, taking their five-game form to: W3, D1, L1. They scored six of their seven goals in that sequence before HT, and each of their previous two opening goals have arrived within the 20th-25th minute period.
The Toffees’ record in their last PL home fixture before Christmas (1992-present) reads well: W12, D10, L6 (GF 34, GA 28), though they are winless in their last five such games (D2, L3). Both years ending in ‘0’ yielded draws, while eight of the ten draws in the whole sequence (including last season’s home clash vs Arsenal) ended 0-0.
Player to watch: Richarlison scored in midweek vs Leicester, and against Arsenal in the last H2H meeting. Both goals arrived before HT.
Carlo Ancelotti cannot count on Allan (thigh), Fabian Delph (thigh), Lucas Digne (ankle), and Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Achilles tendon). Seamus Coleman (thigh) and James Rodriguez (calf) are questionable.
Arsenal Recent Form & Team News
Arsenal have picked up just one win in their previous nine PL games (W1, D2, L6), So far, their attack has been a major issue, as evidenced by the fact that they haven’t scored more than a single PL goal in nine matches. Furthermore, their goal average of 0.85 is the fourth-lowest in the league, although their 110 PL goals versus Everton is more than they’ve scored against any other PL side, or any PL side has scored against another for that matter!
The Gunners have failed to score in three of their previous four PL matches on the road (W1, D1, L2), while both teams have scored in just one of their six PL away matches so far. Indiscipline is also an issue, as no team has picked up more PL red cards than Arsenal’s total of seven since Mikel Arteta took charge of the first team in Dec 2019.
Player to watch: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace (and the winner) in the last H2H meeting, maintaining his 100% record (W3, D/L0) across goalscoring games vs Everton.
Hot stat: Arsenal’s tally of 14 points is the club’s lowest at this stage of a top-flight campaign since 1974/75.
Mikel Arteta will be without Gabriel (suspension), Thomas Partey (thigh), and Mesut Ozil. Sead Kolasinac (muscle), Martinelli, and Reiss Nelson (head) are questionable to feature.
