Arsenal v Everton
15:00 - 21/5/2017 - Emirates Stadium, North London
Arsenal laboured to a win over Sunderland in midweek to ensure the race to finish in the top-four goes down to the final day, but relying on Middlesbrough to get a result at Anfield leaves little reason for optimism. Nevertheless, they’re six wins from seven since changing to three at the back, keeping clean sheets in four of these and the solitary loss coming at a rampant Spurs.
Everton scored for the first time in four games when they beat Watford 1-0 at home to round off a successful campaign at Goodison. It’s been a different story on the road where they’re winless in seven and their overall record reads W4-D6-L8. They’ve lost three of five winless matches travelling to the sides above them in what’s been a regular theme in recent seasons. Since 2011/12, their away record against the current top-six is a disappointing W1-D14-L25.
Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea have all scored at least three when hosting the Toffees this term and with the goals slightly drying up the other end we’ll look to the Gunners to cover the -1 handicap. Despite their problems this season, Arsenal have still won 13 of 18 at the Emirates, eight of which were by at least a two-goal margin.
