Prediction on: Everton vs Arsenal
Posted on Nov 27th, 2012 by Araz Heydariyehzadeh
Everton remain undefeated at Goodison Park this season and Arsenal who failed to beat Villa on the road last week will have a uphill battle on their hands if they want to come away from this game with anything at all.
Both teams are on a run of indifferent form at the moment, Arsenal should and could have beaten Villa last week whilst Everton once again created bundles of chances but with Fellaini missing through suspension, couldn't convert their chances and missed out on 3 points once again leaving them with just 1 win in 7 games.
Arsenal's Away Form
Arsenal currently have the 5th best away record in the league but have managed to win only 2 of their 7 matches on the road with their last away win coming at the start of October against West Ham.
Just 7 away goals is pretty poor going for a team of their calibre but they have managed to salvage a higher than expected return of points from those goals but conceding only 5 making theirs the best away defence in the league.
Everton Fail To Score
Everton remain undefeated at home and whilst they have struggled for goals of late, managing just one against Norwich and Reading in their last two games you might expect a much better defence like Arsenal's to stand a good chance of keeping them out and taking all 3 points.
Everton though are top of one particular table which should put to bed any notions of an Arsenal clean sheet, the Toffees are one of only 3 teams to have failed to find the back of the net only once in their games this season. An impressive record and one that they should look to continue, the drop in the volume of goals recently has been more a product of bad luck rather than bad play and they are playing some excellent stuff on the pitch which is bound to be rewarded with ore goals sooner or later.
Arsenal have been excellent at the back in their away games this season conceding just 5, against an Everton team who has had little luck in front of goal recently this should stand up well and keep Everton's goal tally down. The Toffee's though have a nack for finding a goal from somewhere and with the great football they've been playing they're bound to find a break through in a tight game like this one and we think that might just be enough to nick this game, but with only 2 clean sheets Everton usually concede one too so we're ging for 1-1.
Show the world you know the score!
