This match falls after the international break and in game week 5, Arsenal will be further looking to better their form after a fantastic win against Manchester United in game week 4, In contrast, Everton has endured a challenging start to the season, suffering defeats in three of their four matches while settling for a draw in the other.
This shaky beginning appears to be an extension of their struggles from the previous season when they narrowly avoided relegation and concluded their campaign in the 17th position, marking a rather disappointing season for the club. The football betting sites have a wide range of football markets on their websites.
Being in better form and looking stronger, Arsenal fans can expect a goal fest from their team.
The betting tip is...
Arsenal to score over 2.5 goals
During this summer transfer window, Sean Dyche made significant moves to strengthen the Everton squad. He brought in five new players, with three joining permanently, while Arnaut Danjuma and Jack Harrison were secured on loan deals for the entire season.
However, despite these additions and a renewed mindset, Everton has encountered difficulties in delivering remarkable performances. In the ongoing 2023–24 season, they have played four matches, managing only one draw and suffering three losses, resulting in a goal difference of -6.
Dyche's team must step up their game if they aspire to secure their place in the English Premier League and make a positive impact this season.
Predicted Lineup: Jordan Pickford, Ashley Young, Jarrad Branthawaite, James Tarkowski, Nathan Patterson, Amadou Onana, Idrissa Gueye, James Garner, Arnaut Danjuma, Jack Harris, and Dominic Calvert Lewin
In the 2023–24 season, Arsenal is setting its sights on securing their first league title since 2004, following a close call in the previous year.
During the previous season, the Gunners showed remarkable dominance throughout the campaign, marking perhaps their best opportunity in 20 years to clinch the Premier League title. However, Manchester City managed to outpace Mikel Arteta's team in the final stretch, securing the title with three victories in their last nine league games.
In pursuit of their long-term objectives, Arsenal secured the services of Declan Rice, a key addition to their squad, who has been in fantastic form. Additionally, this summer witnessed the arrivals of Kai Havertz and Jurrien Timber, further bolstering the team's prospects.
Timber is injured after suffering an ACL a couple of weeks back and will be a big miss for the Gunners.
Predicted Lineup: Aaron Ramsdale, Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel, Oliver Zinchenko, Martin Odegaard, Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, Bukayo Saka, Eddie Enketiah, and Gabriel Martinelli
In this upcoming match, Everton finds themselves in a challenging situation due to their recent poor form. However, it's worth noting that they managed to secure a surprising 1-0 victory in the same fixture last season. Their success came by maintaining a solid defensive shape and capitalizing on set-piece opportunities.
If Everton can replicate this defensive resilience and continue to be sharp on set pieces, they certainly have a chance to upset the odds once again. However, it's important to acknowledge that Arsenal appears to be the stronger team in current form. They have shown dominance and consistency, and all signs point to them being the favorites to win this match.
