Soccer Betting: Arsenal and Everton Meet in EPL’s Hottest Match of the Weekend

Posted by Aaron . on October 23, 2015 in

Over the past few years, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United have reigned supreme in the English Premier League, with the Liverpool being the only club coming close to breaking up that trio. Arsenal has always been there or thereabouts, but have always found a way to come up short. They are keeping pace with City at the top, and may feel that they have a legitimate shot this season. They will continue that push when they host Everton at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon.
Date/Time: Saturday, October 24th, 12:30 PM.
Location: Emirates Stadium.
Soccer Betting Odds: Arsenal -200

This week was one of the most memorable in Arsenal’s (6-2-1) recent history, as they sprung the upset over Bayern Munich in the Champions League. While that win was indeed a huge one, the Gunners really need to be careful not to let that success go to their heads when they head back into league play this coming weekend. Arsenal have been in great form of late, and have back to back 3-0 wins over Manchester United and Watford to prove it.
Arsenal vs Bayern
Several factors can benefit Arsenal this weekend, the team is playing well as a unit right now, but you cannot deny that the return to form of Alexis Sanchez has not been as decisive as many of us expected. The Chilean has netted 6 goals in his last 3 domestic games, including a magnificent hat-trick against Leicester City. Arsenal are also getting great service off the bench from Olivier Giroud, but you wonder how long the enigmatic Frenchman is going to be satisfied with cameo roles.

On the other hand, Everton (3-2-4) is as tough to figure out as they always are, as this is a team that has always struggled to play consistently and chase the big players. Case in point, the same team that laid a 3-1 beating on Chelsea also managed to look pretty awful in taking a 3-0 dismantling at the hands of Manchester United last weekend.
Everton need more goals from Belgian kicker Romelu Lukaku, and they also need to figure out a way to work Stephen Naismith into the team on a more regular basis. The Scotsman always seems to make a positive impact when he plays, but he is all too often given a seat on the bench, leading to rumors that a move may be in the offing.
At the end of the day, Arsenal have much more offensive firepower than Everton, which should prove to be the difference here. I like the Gunners to come away with a comfortable 2-0 win.
