Everton vs Arsenal Match Analysis & Prediction
17/09/2023 6:30 pm
The dreaded trip to Goodison Park comes early for Arsenal this season, as the Gunners aim to rectify their recent Merseyside mistakes when they face Everton in the Premier League on Sunday evening.
The hosts find themselves languishing in the relegation zone in 18th place on one point through four matches, level with 17th-placed Sheffield United.
Prior to the international break, Evertom earned a point in their last Premier League match, drawing 2-2 against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, extending their winless season start to four games.
The Toffees have lost each of their two previous Premier League matches at Goodison Park this season, suffering a 1-0 defeat to Fulham on August 12 before most recently losing to Wolverhampton Wanderers by the same scoreline on August 26.
Meanwhile, Arsenal’s last league match saw them claim a 3-1 dramatic victory over Manchester United at home to extend their unbeaten start to the league campaign to four games.
That result has left Mikel Arteta’s side sitting in fifth place in the Premier League standings on 10 points through four matches, two points behind league leaders Manchester City.
When the two sides last met in Premier League action, Arsenal won 4-0 at Emirates Stadium last season. Gabriel Martinelli led the Gunners with goals in the 46th and 80th minutes, while Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard were also on the scoresheet.
