Everton v Arsenal Betting: Action at both ends as Koeman reaches potential D-Day

With neither side looking comfortable at the back, Al Hain-Cole is backing goals when the Gunners take on the Toffees at Goodison Park

Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from their shock defeat at Watford when they travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton in Sunday’s Premier League clash.

Having recorded a late 1-0 Europa League victory over Crvena Zvezda on Thursday thanks to Olivier Giroud's wonderful goal, the Gunners are priced at even odds (2.00) with SportPesa to also return to winning ways in the league on Merseyside.

Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman’s men fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to Lyon in their European outing, but are on offer at 14/5 (3.80) to pull off a morale-boosting victory against their high profile opponents.

None of the last six encounters between these sides have resulted in draws, however you can get odds of 51/20 (3.55) on them playing out a stalemate in this one.

Coming after a run of four consecutive clean sheets where they only dropped points in a goalless draw away at Chelsea, the Watford defeat was a major blow to Arsene Wenger’s team.

Strangely enough, that stalemate at Stamford Bridge is the only point they have claimed in four matches away from home this season, with 10 of their last 16 league fixtures on the road resulting in defeat.

In fact, only Crystal Palace have conceded more goals away from home in the Premier League since the start of 2017 than Arsenal, meaning the Toffees should fancy their chances of finding some joy in attack.

However, having only kept one clean sheet in an EFL Cup clash against Sunderland in their last 11 fixtures, the hosts are unlikely to prove particularly sturdy at the back themselves.

Therefore, odds of 4/5 (1.80) seem generous on at least three goals being scored for the seventh time in nine encounters between these sides, as well as Everton’s sixth game in seven in front of their own fans.
