Reason For Everton vs Arsenal Predictions

  • Both clubs should have new managers in place before Saturday.
  • Arsenal’s last eight Premier League games averaged 3.25 goals per 90 minutes.
  • Everton’s last eight top-flight contests averaged 3.5 goals per game.
  • Everton were involved in an energy sapping Carabao Cup quarter final tussle on Wednesday.

New faces in both dugouts at Goodison Park?

Everton’s meeting with Arsenal in Saturday’s lunchtime kickoff looks set to be one of the most compelling matches of the weekend and of the season in its entirety, with both clubs hoping to have new permanent managers in place by the end of the week.

The Toffees are close to tying up a deal to appoint highly-regarded Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager, while Arsenal have made moves to instil former Gunners and Everton midfielder Mikel Arteta as their new boss.

With fresh appointees expected to lead out their respective new teams at Goodison Park this weekend, and the potency of the new manager bounce in effect, Saturday’s game promises to be a cracker.

Everton’s cup commitments

Ancelotti could have a jaded squad to work with after Everton’s pulsating Carabao Cup quarter final tussle with Leicester City in mid-week.

The Blues fought back from two down at home to the Foxes, levelling in second half injury time through Leighton Baines before they were eventually ousted on penalties.

In what was almost certainly his last game at the helm, interim manager Duncan Ferguson opted to field a full-strength team on Wednesday – something that is sure to have energy sapping repercussions of some sort on Saturday.

Everton, do however, take on an Arsenal outfit that have been largely dreadful away from home in the Premier League this season. The Gunners won on their last assignment at West Ham, though that 3-1 triumph was one of two away victories that bookended another six winless matches in between.

Arsenal’s form at the Emirates has been just as patchy, though there has been consistency in the Gunners games in terms of goals. Arsenal regularly combine some sparkling attacking play with haphazard defending – a mix that that has a noticeable effect on numbers behind their results.

An average of 3.25 goals were plundered per 90 minutes of action across Arsenal’s last eight top-flight matches, with over 2.5 goals scored and both teams registering in five of those same eight fixtures.

Everton’s last eight Premier League ties have been similarly exciting, with 3.5 goals scored per game on average, with over 2.5 goals hitting the net and both teams scoring in five of those matches.

Perfect recipe for goals

Under the stewardship of new managers, both sides will be pushing hard to make a positive start this weekend, and that should in turn lead to an open, end-to-end contest between two teams with major defensive weaknesses.

With that considered, the over 2.5 goals and both teams to score combination appeals for Saturday’s fixture, while our correct score prediction settles on a 2-2 draw.

Both teams will be going for the jugular on Saturday, and that should ensure that their respective fragility at the back is even further exposed than normal.

Arsenal have already conceded two or more goals in 10 separate Premier League games this term, while Everton shipped two or more goals nine times so far this season, and those statistics scream that goal-scoring opportunities should be plentiful at either end on Merseyside on Saturday.

While Everton would ordinarily back themselves to beat poor travellers Arsenal, especially after proving their mettle in successive games against Chelsea, Man Utd and Leicester – their mid-week cup endeavours should take enough of an edge off their intensity to allow the Gunners to snatch a point.
