This weekend was a decent one for Arsenal – we beat Stoke City 3-1, Manchester City lost, Liverpool only drew and Tottenham also lost by a single goal at Old Trafford.
But tonight sees us travel up to Merseyside in a game we usually struggle in. The results have been okay but it’s always a tough game up there and they always give us a run for our money.
Last year we beat them 2-0 at Goodison Park, with goals from Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck, and the season before we drew 2-2 after late, late goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud to steal a point at the death. In 2014 we got mullered 3-0, and the season before that it ended 1-1. So the results have been mixed.
But what do you think? Can we beat Everton tonight?
It seems as if a win tonight would set a real marker in the title race and you just have the feeling that we might bottle it.
I think Everton will make it tough for us, considering how open they’ve been recently and in the process dropped silly points. They’ll be defending for their lives, especially as they know we have the ability to rip them apart when we’re on song.
I think the game will end 2-1 to Arsenal, and it’ll be very tight.
