Arsenal took on Everton in the premier league game this tuesday night at Goddison Park and it was a crucial game for both sides. Arsenal started confident in the opening 20 minutes and they opened the scoring thanks to deflected Alexis Sanches freekick which founds its way into the net after Ashley Williams failed to clear a weak shot. However Everton got themselves back into the game just before the break when Seamus Coleman scored to make it 1-1. Ashley Williams scored a late second half header to make to 2-1 for Everton.

Match Preview: Arsenal are playing Everton this Sunday a team against which they have done pretty well over the years. And going into this weekend they will be odds on favourites to get something out of this match considering how poor Everton have been so far this season. Even with the unpredictability attached with Arsenal’s form, they should have enough about them to see off what is turning into a sorry Everton side.

Arsenal will have to cope with massive injury pile up with Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Flamini and Cech joining Wilshere, Rosicky and Cazorla on the treatment table. So Daivd Ospina set to continue in goal Hector Bellerin, Monreal, Mertasacker and Koscielny to make up the back four. Elnany and Coquelin to play in holding roles with Ozil, Campbell and Sanchez (doubtful) playing behind Olivier Giroud.
Everton will be delighted with the form of Lukaku who can not stop scoring at the moment and his well taken double against Chelsea got themselves a place in the semifinals of FA Cup. This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Saturday.
Match Predictions: Everton has been woeful at home losing 7 games this season and their recent form against Arsenal is not something they will be looking up too having only won 1 game in the last 17 meetings. But this is the perfect opportunity for Everton to get something out of a game against Arsenal. I am going with a 2-1 win for Everton with Lukaku scoring a brace.
Arsenal has been woeful of late and they needed a reaction from the squad against Everton in league game. Thats exactly when Wenger got when Arsenal brushed Everton aside with a superb first half performance. Early goal from Danny Welbeck in 7th minute and a magnificent counter attacking goal just before the break from Iwobi made it 2-0 and put Arsenal in commanding position.
