Arsenal’s recent revival will be put to the test when they travel to Goodison to take on Everton, and they are 2.3 shots with Boylesports to come through with flying colours and bag all three points.
Since beating Spurs 5-2 after a run of poor results, things have gone from strength to strength and they are now unbeaten in their last four games in all competitions.
They have beaten Liverpool, AC Milan and Newcastle and with Robin van Persie continuing to bang in the goals have climbed into fourth position.
The Dutchman has already scored 37 goals for club and country this season (44 in his last 45 PL matches), and has netted five in the last four games for the Gunners.
He also scored the winner against Everton when the two sides met at the Emirates back in December – a game in which the Toffees failed to manage a single shot on target.
That makes the 4.75 on offer with bet365 about him scoring first look decent value, but an even better bet is surely the 2.1 available with the same firm about him scoring anytime.
As far as the stats are concerned Arsenal hold all the aces, as Everton have won none and lost 7 of their last 9 meetings.
However they are themselves in decent form at present, and David Moyes’ has made Goodison a tough place to go and come away with all three points.
But the Scottish manager seems to have his main sights set on winning the FA Cup judged on the weakened side he put out against Liverpool in the recent Merseyside derby, and it will be interesting to see what side he fields.
But in reality an on song Arsenal should prove too strong for the Blues, and I expect them to come away with a victory in what promises to be a tight affair.
Arsene Wenger’s men to win 2-1 is my idea of the outcome, and that scoreline is a 9 shot with bet365, Betfred and Paddy Power.
