Arsenal v Everton Tips and Betting Offers, Premier League, Sunday 21st May 2017
Can Arsenal sneak in to the top four on the final day of the season? They can still catch either Liverpool or Man City with a result this weekend. While it’s going to be an uphill battle to catch those two, the Gunners need to push for the Champions League.
While they’re competing for silverware next weekend, making the top four is arguably much more important for the future of the club, and Wenger’s hopes of staying on.
At this point in the season, it becomes needs must for the majority of games in the run in. With Arsenal in dire need of a win, they’ve been priced in to 4/9 with BetFred. Meanwhile the draw in this one is 10/3 with SkyBet. Everton are 6/1 with Ladbrokes to pull off a shock on Sunday, and deny the Gunners a spot in the top four.

At one point both of these sides harboured top four hopes, but a string of slips against top six sides ended Everton’s hopes of making the top six, never mind fourth. Despite that Ronald Koeman has enjoyed a good season with the Toffees, as he looks to re-establish them among the elite of the Premier League.
There’s little for Koeman’s side to focus on this weekend, as they can’t move up or down the table. They’re secure in seventh, knowing they face an early start for next season’s Europa League qualifiers. Meanwhile, this is a defining match for the Gunners, who risk missing out on a huge Champions League windfall. Their big names have to be at their best to have any chance of facing off with the continent’s top names next term.
Arsenal’s great recent form has been boosted by their switch to 3-4-3, which has been getting the best out of Alexis Sanchez. He’s been in great form in recent weeks, and he guided them to victory over Sunderland, scoring both goals in a 2-0 win. Despite being their top scorer, the Chilean is priced at 4/5 with Coral to find the net against Everton on Sunday. The visitors haven’t been that solid at the back on their travels, so we think you should take advantage of that price.
While we see Sanchez getting a goal for the Gunners, there are threats in the Everton line-up. This game could be the final time Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku step out for the Toffees, and we see them making an impact in what seems likely to be their send off. They should be able to find a way through the Arsenal defence, so we’re backing both teams to score here at 19/20 with bet365.
