Arsenal Vs Everton: Prediction, Team News, Stream And Odds

Fresh from announcing their intention to withdraw from the proposed European Super League, Arsenal will continue their Premier League campaign at home to top four chasing Everton on Friday evening.

The Gunners return to league action after drawing their last game with Fulham courtesy of a last-minute equaliser from Eddie Nketiah.

The result means the north London club have won just two of their last seven games in all competitions.

Currently sitting in ninth in the table, a win would move them level with Everton and just six points off fourth place.

The Toffees are also going through their own rough patch of form and are winless in their last six games in all competitions, including a draw in each of their last three games.

The Merseyside club currently sits eighth in the table, but a win would put them just three points off the top four, with a game in hand over the teams around them.

With plenty still to play for both sides, SPORTbible previews the game between Mikel Arteta's two former sides...

Arsenal vs Everton predictions and betting odds

Both sides have quality among their ranks, but their current form wouldn't necessarily suggest that.

Arteta will be keen to get his side firing ahead of their Europa League semi-final clash next week, while Everton still have a very real chance of making the top four if they can get back on the winning trail.

Ultimately, with neither side at their best, and with their best attackers being unavailable or not fully fit, it likely means the game will lack goals too.

Arsenal are 21/20 to win in midweek, with Everton priced at 13/5 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 12/5.

Odds are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change.

Prediction: 0-0

Arsenal team news and injuries

Advert

The Gunners are set to be without both of their first choice strikers following their draw with Fulham.

Arsenal's star forwards in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are not likely to feature

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is still recovering after contracting malaria on international duty for Gabon, while Alexandre Lacazette hobbled off in the second half with a hamstring injury at the weekend.

With the two star forwards missing, Eddie Nketiah should get the nod from Arteta after scoring on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Kieran Tierney and David Luiz are long-term absentees in defence, meaning Granit Xhaka should continue to deputise at left-back, while Hector Bellerin is likely to remain at right-back.

Everton team news and injures

Carlo Ancelotti's side are still struggling without several key players, including top goalscorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The England international has missed the last two games with injury and while Everton expect him to be available against Arsenal, it's unlikely that he'll start.

Midfielders Abdoulaye Doucoure, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Andre Gomes and Fabian Delph are all unlikely to be available too, while defender Yerry Mina is also injured.

It means the Toffees are likely to go with three at the back once again with two defensive midfielders, relying on Gylfi Sigurdsson and James Rodriguez to create the chances for Richarlison up top.
