Arsenal and Everton will open the 33rd round of the English Championship. Will Arsenal break into a showdown for the top 6, or will the Toffees knock off the Gunners?
Arsenal’s current form
After two victories over Sheffield Wednesday and Slavia Prague by a combined score of 7-0, Arsenal managed to lose points against Fulham in a 1-1 draw. Arsenal would have been on the verge of defeat had it not been for Eddie Nketiah scoring a 97th-minute winner. Arsenal are in ninth place with such unstable and disgraceful results (we haven’t forgotten about the 0-3 defeat by Liverpool). The Gunners are three points behind Everton, although Arsenal have played one more match.
Everton’s current form
Everton have not won once in the last five rounds. The two defeats were followed by three successive draws. First, the Toffees failed to beat Crystal Palace 1-1 after coming off the break. Then, they had a 0-0 draw with Brighton. Last weekend, Carlo Ancelotti’s side had a real chance to beat Tottenham, but centre-back duo Keane-Holgate scored both goals. As a result, the Toffees let victory slip away, having another 2-2 draw. So Everton deservedly dropped to eighth place. They are four points clear of the top six, but the Toffees have one game in hand.

Arsenal vs Everton live stream
Premier League is one of the most commercially successful sports leagues in the world. It earns most of its income from television rights, so, for the most part, English Premier League broadcasts can only be watched for money. However, there is another option. For example, watch the Premier League on bookmakers’ websites. The only condition is to register or authorize on the site of the office.
Both teams are terrible when playing defensively, as the Toffees’ recent game against Tottenham proved, as well as Gabriel’s sloppy play against Fulham. Therefore, we recommend betting on the “both to score - yes” for 1.80 from Fonbet.
We also believe that Arsenal will be a little closer to winning, so we would like to draw your attention to the combination of two bets “home team will not lose” and “total over 2.5 goals” for 2.53 from Winline betting company.
In conclusion, we believe the match will end in a draw, as we see no other preconditions. Arsenal are unstable and are only loaded for the Europa League, where the Gunners have a good chance of winning. And Everton, although they have good performers, are still capable of conceding. Therefore, our prediction for the match is a draw. Olimp betting company gives odds of 3.49.
