Gaining an early advantage in their Europa League first-leg out in Greece on Thursday night, Arsenal will look to continue their top-six charge when they welcome Everton to the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
Eventually picking up what was a hard-fought late 1-0 win away at Olympiakos in midweek, the Gunners have made a string of improvements since bringing in Mikel Arteta and now find themselves in the midst of a nine-match unbeaten run across all competitions.
On the flip side, also enjoying quite the revival after bringing in a new boss, Everton landed a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace last weekend and have now secured back-to-back Premier League victories. In fact, Carlo Ancelotti’s squad are enjoying a five-match unbeaten run in England’s top-flight.

Arsenal match on
Leaving it late to snatch a 1-0 win out in Piraeus in midweek and also putting in a rampant second-half display against Newcastle at the Emirates last weekend, it appears that the mood in Mikel Arteta’s camp is certainly on the rise.
Still battling it out in three competitions, Pep Guardiola’s former right-hand man finds his side sat seven points adrift of the top-four and looking to mount what would be a shock European charge.
Along with French international Alexandre Lacazette bagging the winner out in Greece on Thursday and now recording back-to-back strikes, there is no doubt that Arteta will be most impressed by his side’s new-found resolve at the back.
Overcoming an early wave on foreign soil and helped by David Luiz putting in one of his best performances for the Gunners, Sunday’s hosts have now recorded three clean sheets on the bounce across all competitions for the first time since April 2019.

The free-scoring Blues
Building off of their stunning comeback at Vicarage Road earlier in the season and picking up a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace at Goodison last weekend, Carlo Ancelotti’s men are enjoying a Premier League unbeaten run that stems back to New Year’s Day.
Bagging a trio of goals in back-to-back victories against Palace and Watford, the former Napoli boss is another new Head Coach that finds the mood in his camp quickly on the rise after a sluggish start to the season.
Unsurprisingly, two standout performers who have continued to lead Everton’s attacking charge this season has been the blossoming duo of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Brazilian ace Richarlison.
Both finding the net against the Eagles on Merseyside last weekend, both of Ancelotti’s MVPs have recorded a trio of strikes in their last four Premier League appearances and will make the trip to North London filled with confidence.
You might be interested to know that Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison can be found priced at 21/10 and 15/8 respectively with William Hill to extend on their run this weekend.
