Arsenal vs Everton Match Details
Arsenal vs Everton kicks-off at the Emirates Stadium at 16.30 on Sunday 23 February. The match is being broadcast live on Sky Sports.
Mikel Arteta lost his second game in charge of Arsenal to Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium but hasn’t lost in seven games in all competitions since. That run of form includes home wins over Manchester United (2-0), Leeds (1-0 FA Cup), and Newcastle (4-0), whilst a 1-1 draw against Sheffield United was also a fair result considering the top-notch away form of the Blades this season.
Arteta will be pleased that Arsenal have conceded just four goals in those seven games, also keeping four clean sheets. That compares very favourably with the 13 goals the Gunners have scored in the same period.
Things started brightly for Everton under Ancelotti, winning his first two games in charge and the away defeats by Liverpool and Manchester City that followed were only by a single goal. Another win against Brighton (1-0) was followed by a draw at West Ham (1-1), whilst only two goals in extra-time by Newcastle forced a 2-2 draw for the Magpies against the Toffees.
Everton have stepped up again since by coming from two goals behind to win at Watford, whilst they bagged another three goals in a 3-1 home win at Crystal Palace last weekend.
That means the only team Everton have failed to score against in nine games under Ancelotti is Liverpool, but they’ve also only kept two clean sheets.
Arsenal vs Everton Head-To-Heads
Arsenal have an excellent record against Everton, winning 33 and drawing 14 of their 55 Premier League games, whilst Everton have beaten the Gunner just eight times.
Arsenal’s home record against the Toffees is even more impressive, winning 21 and drawing five of their 27 games, with Everton recording just one away win.
Results over the last few seasons have been mixed, with Arsenal winning 5-1 and 5-2 two seasons ago, but last season’s games were won to nil by the home sides, whilst this season’s reverse fixture ended 0-0.
