Everton will face Arsenal at Goodison Park, in Liverpool, at 33rd Round of English Premier League. Everton against Arsenal is always the match with big interest after their previous matches in English Premier League. This round is very important fighting for positions in the league. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
We can say easily that this season is finished for Everton since they were knocked out from other tournaments and now stand at the middle of PL table. Chances to take one of the top 6 teams in the league is impossible and they can only reach 7th place. Even after signing great players last transfer window and great preparations last summer, they didn’t reach season’s goals. This season Everton had ups and downs, however, their losing amount is bigger than wins, as a result, they are at 10th place.
Sigurdsson and Richarlison are two leading players of the team. However, the team has more talented and skillful players, these two made everything for the team to succeed. They playing very unpredictable and not stable football, as they can win against a strong team and then lose to weaker ones. All main players are fit and ready to face Gunners on Goodison Park.
This year they are really strong at stealing the ball from the opposition, attacking set pieces, attacking down the wings and creating chances using through balls. However, they have weaknesses at defending against through ball attacks, avoiding individual errors and protecting the lead.
Arsenal this year is one of the favorites to stay in top 4 of Premier League. They have one game in reserve, so if they take 3 points from Liverpool, they will strengthen their position in 3rd place. At home, Arsenal is playing much confidently than in away games. In the last 10 away matches, they won only 3 games and lost 5 in different competitions. Moreover, they took revenge against Stade Rennes after 3:1 lost at Rennes, they won 3:0 at Emirates Stadium and got the ticket to Quarter-finals of UEFA Europa League.
At home Arsenal, of course, is showing one of the best results in PL and lost only once in 17 games. Aubameyang and Lacazette are playing great football and making a very dangerous attacking lineup. Moreover, they have very strong midfielders, which can make match difference controlling the possession and giving dangerous passes. Unfortunately, most of the season’s time Danny Welbeck, Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding are injured. Right now, Arsenal should think about what they should do with them.
The Gunners this year are very strong at finishing scoring chances, shooting from direct free kicks and attacking down the wings. However, they are weak at aerial duels and stopping opponents from creating chances.
Obviously, Arsenal is stronger in the last several years. Gunners won the last 4 meetings and lost only once since the year 2014. 4 out of 5 last games finished with goals from both clubs and with more than 2.5 goals.
