The sixth matchday of the Premier League holds a duel between two traditional clubs ready. Arsenal and Everton meet at the Emirates Stadium. Both teams are more than 120 years old. The Gunners were founded in 1886, the Toffees already eight years earlier. The game will start on Sunday at 16:00. In this duel also meet two teams who have exchanged their coach in the summer. At Arsenal, Unai Emery inherited the legacy of coach legend Arsène Wenger. Everton picked Marco Silva to replace Sam Allardyce. It will be exciting to see which of the two will prevail. To help you with any bets, the betting base has collected the most important facts about the game.
The new era of the Gunners began bumpily. After 22 years Arsène Wenger ended his career and was replaced by the Spaniard Unai Emery. A positive preparation was suddenly slowed down. In the first two games, the team from the north of London conceded two defeats. However, the program with Manchester City and West Ham was also steep. This was followed by three victories, the last succeeded away against Newcastle. Emery’s primary goal before the season was to stabilize the defensive. The Gunners were active in the transfer market. Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papasthatopulos and Lucas Torreira were all obliged to realize this endeavor. However, this went so far thoroughly wrong. In each game the Gunners conceded at least one goal. A total of nine goals conceded Petr Cech in the goal of Arsenal so far. For the team of Emery offensively more. Ten goals after five games is an appealing return. Specifically, each goal was scored by another player.
To achieve the set goals for the season, the defensive must be stabilized. A key player could be the new signing Lucas Torreira. So far, the 22-year-old was only used as a substitute. Also against Newcastle he had to watch the first 45 minutes from the bench. At break, he came in and changed the game of Arsenal in the positive. After the game, the coach was satisfied. “He helped us find a better balance,” Emery commented after the game. Torreira seems ready for the starting eleven. For the bookmakers, the Gunners are the clear favorites in the game against Everton. For a win by Arsenal against Everton the betting odds are in the 1.4 range.
At Everton, not only is the coach new. A total of six new players are in the squad of Toffees since the summer. These players cost the team from Liverpool a total of almost 100 million euros. Therefore, the expectations on the Merseyside course high, after all, last season was invested heavily in the team. Under Sam Allardyce, only poor football was served with the expensive team. Therefore, the Englishman had to vacate his post in summer. Under Marco Silva, the owners hope for an increase in the ranking in the table, but also a higher attractiveness on the course. So far this has not really worked out. The low point was the defeat on the final day against West Ham. At home, the Toffees went down with 1: 3. Moreover, there is only one victory on the balance sheet. This succeeded on the second match day against Southampton.
The newcomer Richarlison, who has met by league rivals Watford to Everton, was previously the most important player, although he was only used in two games. The Brazilian has scored three goals so far, but fell on the third match day with an attack on Bournemouth negative. He will be back for Arsenal for the first time. Even so, betting odds for a win by Everton are very high. This could be related to the past duels of the two teams. Last season, the Toffees conceded two bankruptcies. The goal difference in these two games was 3:10 from the perspective of the Liverpoolers.
PREDICTION: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.46
