A run of five consecutive Premier League victories for Everton allied with a wobble for Arsenal has reopened the race for a Champions League place and given that the Toffees are currently four points adrift of the Gunners with a game in hand, the pair’s mouth watering showdown at Goodison Park now has an enormous amount riding on it.
In the pair’s league meeting at the Emirates Stadium earlier this term and also in last season’s corresponding Merseyside fixture the pair drew one-each, a result that BetVictor price at a potentially popular 13/2 this time around. Alternatively, Ladbrokes’s offer 9/2 about the teams being inseparable at the end of each half and it’s 3/1 courtesy of bet365 to be a score draw.
Nevertheless, the momentum is with Roberto Martinez’s men who are worth an interest at 4/5 in Stan James’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market at the very least and for punters that believe the Blues will do the business, they’re an eye-catching 10/3 at Skybet to shade it by a one-goal margin.
BetVictor meanwhile, rate Everton’s on-loan front man Romelu Lukaku, who has struck four times in six matches, at an enticing 6/1 to break the deadlock.
