Everton vs Arsenal: Predictions, tips & betting odds

4:48 AM EST 2/2/23
Goodison Park, Everton
With the Gunners boasting an excellent defensive record they will be confident of keeping a clean sheet against the goal-shy Merseysiders

Everton will hope to end their catastrophic run of form in the Premier League this weekend, yet Sean Dyche's first game in charge of the Toffees will be the toughest test possible against top of the table Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta returns to Merseyside with the Gunners in superb form having picked up 35 points from the last 39 on offer.

Everton vs Arsenal latest odds

These two teams are separated by 35 points in the table, and it is unsurprising to find the visitors at just 2/5 (1.40) with bet365 to pick up three points.

A victory for Everton with a new man at the helm would feel like a potential catalyst for their season, yet they are clear outsiders at 15/2 (8.50) with the draw at 7/2 (4.50).

Everton vs Arsenal first goal scorer odds

The shortest priced player to break the deadlock is young Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah at 9/2 (5.50) with the 23-year-old in strong form scoring six times in all competitions since Boxing Day.

Next in the betting comes Bukayo Saka at 11/2 (6.50), the same price as Gabriel Martinelli with the Brazilian scoring first the last time these sides met, nine months ago.

The most fancied Everton player to score first is Dominic Calvert-Lewin at 10/1 (11.00) although the England forward has not notched a league goal since October.

Everton vs Arsenal preview

The Toffees' total of 28 goals conceded is the same as eighth placed Brentford yet the Bees have netted 32 times this season compared to Everton's 15 goals.

With no striker coming in during the transfer window, the Goodison Park outfit are likely to continue to struggle in the final third, and they look set to be in for a difficult afternoon against the Gunners' miserly defence.

The north Londoners have kept clean sheets in seven of their 10 league matches on the road this season and should be well-backed to record another shutout against one of the poorest teams in the division.

Everton vs Arsenal tips and predictions

Arsenal to win to nil is offered at 6/5 (2.20) which looks like the best way to back an away win in a one-sided market.
