Arsenal v Everton Past Meetings

This will be the 197th competitive fixture between the two clubs, with Arsenal ahead on the head-to-head record with 98 wins compared to Everton’s 56.

Arsenal have won five of the last six fixtures, including 5-2 at Goodison Park earlier in the campaign – after which Ronald Koeman was sacked by The Toffees.

Everton have never won at the Emirates Stadium and their last away win at Arsenal came back in January 1996.

Arsenal v Everton Stats

Arsenal have won nine of their 12 home league games this season – the division’s third best record.

Everton’s away record this season has been awful, winning just one of their 12 games on the road and collecting just eight points – the fourth lowest in the Premier League.

The Gunners have won just two of their last eight matches in all competitions – both coming at home – after enduring their worst run of form of the campaign.

Everton’s recent win over Leicester ended a winless run of seven games in all competitions – they have lost four of their last six.

Wayne Rooney has scored more league goals against Arsenal than any other side in his career.

Arsenal v Everton Team News

Arsenal will be without long-term injury absentee Santi Cazorla, while there are doubts over both Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck.

Everton will be without long-term injury quarter Leighton Baines, James McCarthy, Ramiro Funes-Mori and Maarten Stekelenburg.

Reason for Arsenal v Everton Bets

Neither of these sides are in-form but home advantage has been crucial for Arsenal this season and it should see them to another three points here.

The Toffees have been toothless on the road in a spell of form which dates back to early 2017, and their recent record in this fixture is particularly grim reading – without an away win in over two decades.

It is hard to see past an Arsenal win especially with new signings Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang available.

However, the real man to watch could be Alexandre Lacazette – who will now know he must fight harder than ever to stake his claim for a place in the Gunners side.

Unlike the Gabonese forward, he is likely to start and having already hit nine league goals this season – including one at Goodison Park this season – he will be the man to watch this time around.
