Where: Goodison Park, Liverpool, EnglandWhen: Sunday, September 17, 5:30 PM CET
Everton didn’t start the season well, while on the other end, Arsenal and its fans can be happy with the way things develop. They are heading for Goodison as massive favorites, which is nothing strange due to the way Arteta’s unit played recent meetings. The Toffees are already under pressure, and with a loss here, they might sink even further in the standings.
Everton vs. Arsenal Preview
Sean Dyche is under pressure, and he might lose his job following the game against Arsenal. The former Burnley manager won only one point in four rounds, with the Toffees playing mediocre football.
All the good performances during the preseason period were quickly forgotten following the first three rounds and losses to Fulham, Wolves, and Aston Villa. Eliminating Doncaster from the EFL Cup and taking a point in Sheffield against United, 2-2, gave some hope to the fans, but overall, it doesn’t look well for Everton.
They had problems with injured players, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin should be back. However, Everton needs more than just one player to improve the situation.
Gabriel Jesus is back, and that’s a great boost for the Gunners, who immediately pushed their game to another level. Some would say that beating Manchester United, 3-1, was a consequence of luck, but everyone who watched agreed that the Gunners were better that day.
The team looks fluid but very sharp and tough when needed. Declan Rice still hasn’t reached his maximum potential, and we expect to see his contribution in some month or two.
In three of four EPL games Arsenal played, we saw both teams netting and over 2.5 goals, with the only one ending differently vs. Crystal Palace at Selhurst, 0-1. The defense has slight problems due to all the injuries and suspensions, but for the moment, that isn’t impacting the results.

Everton vs. Arsenal Head to Head
Both teams picked up a win in the 2022/23 season. Everton was better at Goodison, 1-0, in February, and one month later, Arsenal responded with a 4-0 beating.
Arsenal didn’t won at Goodison since 2017, losing four events and getting just one draw. It is one of the longest active negative streaks the Gunners have.
Everton vs. Arsenal Predictions
The Gunners are coming to Goodison at full speed and below-average Everton doesn’t have the strength to compete with the Premiership runners-up. Last year’s victory was on Dyche’s debut at home, and Arsenal players remember that. They will be fueled to silence the fans and the stadium.
