Everton to be too strong for weak Gunners
<div><h2 style="text-align:center">Everton vs Arsenal</h2><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/eng/premier-league/arsenal-fc-vs-everton-fc-3841480/" target="_blank" title="Game Odds"><strong>Saturday 21st December at Goodison Park</strong></a></p><h2><strong>Everton</strong></h2><p>Carlo Ancelotti may or may not be in charge for Everton’s third tough match in a row. Duncan Ferguson has gained 4 points out of a possible 6 against Chelsea and Manchester Utd. The attitude of the players has been everything that a new/interim boss would want. With the results rewarding the players’ faith in each other it has increased confidence at the same time. This group have always had individual talent but lacked urgency on the field. In the last two encounters we have seen them start to enjoy all aspects of the game that come within Premier League clashes. Richarlison has all the weapons to finish off the good work by his team mates. Ferguson last week away at Old Trafford packed his midfield with energy and bite leaving a horse shoe of flair and individuality. Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been brought back in to give an honesty and energy to the front line. Bernard can unlock any defence if he has willing partners ahead of him.</p><p><strong>KEY Strengths</strong>: Strong in the Tackle, Balls into the box, Work rate.</p><p><strong>KEY Weakness</strong>: Being off the pace, allowing opponents’ time on the ball.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%;height:12px" /></a></p><h2>Arsenal</h2><p>Shambles spineless and rudderless are labels being aimed at Arsenal football club right now. A clean sheet is a long to distant memory in the Premier League. Last weekend the Gunners hosted last season’s Champions and were 3-0 down and out at half time. Anyone of an Arsenal back four would struggle to get into any other Premier League side. The midfield has lovely footballers who do not command respect through performance. No obvious leaders are stepping up when the chips are down. Mezut Ozil continues to drag all around him down to his level of urgency. Even the most ruthless individual must feel some empathy for Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette. Arsenal fans need this whole situation to be cleared up as soon as possible because this experience may well scar interim boss Freddie Ljungberg for some time to come.</p><p><strong>KEY Strengths:</strong> Strikers, Pace</p><p><strong>KEY Weakness:</strong> Weak and slow back line, no leaders, want to play perfect game.</p><p> </p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Any sort of pace and aggression from Everton will be enough to gain the three points. Arsenal are feeling sorry for themselves and will need the home side to start slow and respectful for them to get into this game. The Everton strikers have all the attributes to make this trip north a fruitless one for the men from North London. I expect the home side’s midfield to jump all over Arsenal and not give them a chance to catch their breath.</p><p><strong>Best Betting Tips:</strong></p><ul> <li>Everton to win @2.40 with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Betfair</a></li> <li>Everton to win and over 1.5 goals @2.70 with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></li></ul></div>
