Beleaguered Arsenal travels to Merseyside to face Everton in the early Premier League kick-off on Saturday in major need of a win.
Everton v Arsenal
Live on BT Sport 1/ BT Sport 1 HD
Everton have been highly inconsistent this season under the affable Roberto Martinez. Last weekend the Toffees won through the semi-final of the FA Cup, as two Romelu Lukaku goals secured a 2-0 win over Chelsea in a feisty affair.
That win will appease the unhappy Everton fans who were questioning Martinez’s future, which understandable considering the Toffees have suffered three defeats in their last four games at Goodison Park in the top-flight. The side from Merseyside are odds of 17/10 with BetVictor for the win in this clash.
Striker Lukaku has been on fire this season and has scored 25 goals in all competitions. The big Belgian can be backed at odds of odds of 9/2 to open the scoring in this one with BetVictor.
Arsenal arrives on Merseyside in woeful form. The Gunners have won just one of their last eight games in all competitions and are now 11 points off the pace in the race for the title. This is a must-win game for the Gunners.
The Toffees are actually one of their favourite opponents, as the Toffees have claimed just two wins in the last 20 meetings with the side from north London. Their recent away record in the top-flight does bode well for a victory here though, as Arsene Wenger’s side have won just two of their last nine games on their travels.
Arsenal are actually slight favourites to win this game and can be backed at odds of 17/10 with Bet365 to emerge from Merseyside with a victory.
I can see goals in this game with maybe a draw in the offing. The draw can be backed at odds of 13/5 with BetVictor.
