Arsenal vs Everton Match Prediction

By Dean Carr

Arsenal welcome Everton to the Emirates Stadium on 21/05/17 as the Gunners look to give themselves a chance of qualifying for the Champions League. Arsenal overcame a stubborn Sunderland side last time out, winning 2-0 at home in a game they would’ve hoped to significantly improve their goal difference. Everton meanwhile beat Watford 1-0 on Friday night to finish their season at home on a positive note. Read on for a full match preview complete with betting tips and predictions.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Arsenal have the greatest incentive coming into this game, knowing they must put pressure on Liverpool as well as trying to maintain momentum ahead of next weekend’s FA Cup final. Everton won’t be too keen on doing their local rivals a favour, and I’m expecting Arsenal to secure a comfortable victory this weekend.

Arsenal Preview

With one Premier League game left of the season, we are still unaware as to what Arsene Wenger’s intentions are heading into next term as his side gave themselves an outside chance of getting into the Champions League with a 2-0 win over Sunderland. It took 72 minutes of wearing down Sunderland’s defence to open the scoring, as Mesut Ozil’s first-time, cushioned square pass was tapped in by Alexis Sanchez at the far post. Sanchez showed his predatory instincts inside the box again nine minutes later, converting from close range after Olivier Giroud’s excellent acrobatic effort was kept out by Jordan Pickford. The result ensures they have at least kept the race for a Champions League place alive for the final day of the season, as they rely on other teams to do them a favour. Should Liverpool fail to beat Middlesbrough, an Arsenal victory would see them go into the top four, while a Man City defeat would give them the chance to leapfrog Pep Guardiola’s side if they were able to overcome a five-goal swing. With four wins in a row before this clash, as well as being unbeaten in six at the Emirates with five victories and a draw, Arsenal look well positioned to do their half of the bargain this weekend as they look to rely on Middlesbrough and Watford to do them a favour.

Arsenal Team News

Santi Cazorla (achilles) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring) are both ruled out for the home side here. Laurent Koscielny (calf) will be assessed, while Lucas Perez (thigh) is available to return when Wenger sees fit.

Everton Preview

Ronald Koeman will be dissatisfied with the way his team have ended the season but did have something to smile about last Friday after watching his side beat Watford 1-0 at Goodison Park. Although a far from vintage home performance in comparison to some of the swashbuckling displays they have produced at home since the turn of the year, the 7th-placed side were handed the victory by a player who could’ve been scoring his final goal for the club. Contract rebel Ross Barkley drove the ball home from the edge of the box in what proved to be the game’s only goal, with the midfielder - at the time of writing - still yet to put pen to paper on a fresh deal with the club as the final weekend approaches. It seems Koeman does not see Barkley as an indispensable member of his squad and his situation has overshadowed the fact Everton finishes the season with nine wins from their final ten home matches. The club will be looking to press on and take their second half of the season momentum into next term, although they are entering an uncertain summer with the futures of Barkley and Romelu Lukaku remaining especially uncertain. With a positive Everton result ensuring Liverpool will finish in the top four, it will be interesting to see how the away side approach this fixture at the Emirates which has nothing riding on it for themselves.

Everton Team News

Ramiro Funes Mori (knee), Seamus Coleman (broken leg), James McCarthy (hamstring) and Yannick Bolasie (cruciate ligament) are all set for long spells on the sidelines. Aaron Lennon is missing due to personal reasons, while Maarten Stekelenburg (groin) is out.
