Arsenal vs Everton
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 23rd September 2018
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
Arsenal started the season with the wrong footing after 2 losses but later bounced back to their form to win 3 consecutive EPL matches. Additionally, they also clinched a win in their UEFA Europa League fixture against Ukraine’s Premier League, Vorskla.
They will be striving to take advantage of the fact that they are playing in their home ground. The Gunners will be without 4 of their players who are out with injury. Nevertheless, the key players including Ozil, Aubameyang, and Lacazette in the forward positions will be in the starting XI.
Everton is on the road amid the prevailing inconsistencies in the last 5 games. They have only one win, 3 draws and 1 loss. With this mixture of results, they may not be certain that this game will be in their favor.
Even with their performance woes, they have been able to score in every of the 5 played games. This shows that the striking form is intact. Perhaps, they should work on their defensive lines which seems more porous and unfocused.
They have 7 of their players with injury, a factor that may just contribute to their loss in this matchup.

Arsenal vs Everton: Prediction
The gunners are the most suited to clinch a win in this fixture. They are in high spirits and will be aiming to continue with their winning streak. However, they easily concede and there are high chances that they will have at least one netted by Everton.
Additionally, winning for the visitors will prove a difficult endeavor. Their striking power is remarkable and will not hesitate to utilize any chance they get. I foresee a thrilling game with over 2.5 goals.
