Everton v Arsenal betting tips: Gunners could heap more misery on Benitez
Preview and odds for Monday’s match
After defeat at Manchester United on Thursday, Arsenal have the chance to get back on track as we pick out some Everton v Arsenal betting tips.
The 3-2 loss was the Gunners’ second in three matches and both sides will be desperate to win this one, with Everton without a victory since September.
Monday’s match at Goodison Park kicks off at 8pm and is live on Sky Sports.
Everton v Arsenal match odds
The pressure continues to mount on Rafa Benitez with Everton now eight games without a win.
They have picked up just two points in that time and were humiliated at home by local rivals Liverpool in the Merseyside derby in midweek.
Arsenal find themselves in fifth place having turned their season around following a dreadful start to the campaign.
Arteta has trusted his youngsters, who have thrived of late and they could easily have left Old Trafford with all three points on Thursday evening. Their quality could come to the fore here and they are chalked up as the 23/20 favourites.
Everton have struggled for goals since Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been missing with injury and the Toffees scored for the first time in four games on Wednesday evening.
"Dominic Calvert-Lewin is getting better, he's doing really well, but he's still a couple of weeks [away], minimum. We have to be careful."

Everton v Arsenal head-to-head
The hosts did the double over Arsenal last term and they ran out 2-1 winners when they clashed here at Goodison Park.
The Gunners last won at Goodison back in 2017 courtesy of a 5-2 victory.
Alexandre Lacazette was on the scoresheet then and although another seven-goal thriller is unlikely, the Frenchman could find the net at 2/1.
Everton v Arsenal key battles
Arsenal youngster’s have repaid Arteta’s faith in recent months and no one has impressed more than Emile Smith-Rowe, whose fine season has seen him creep onto Gareth Southgate’s radar.
Having bagged a first international goal for the Three Lions against San Marino in the international break, the 21-year-old hit his fifth of the season at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
Benitez would have been delighted to see Demarai Gray score his fourth of the season in the Merseyside Derby.
The summer bargain buy has been one of the few bright sparks of Everton’s campaign to date and he could be the man to cause the Gunners most problems.
For a speculative build-your-bet option, why not try Smith-Rowe and Gray to both have two or more shots and also both provide an assist at 75/1 in Everton v Arsenal betting tips.
