Two sides currently on the rise, Arsenal and Everton meet at the Emirates for what promises to be an intriguing affair on Sunday, but it is worth noting that the visitors have not won here since 1996.

Arsenal are mounting an overdue charge of putting themselves back into the race for an European tournament next term, and after trouncing Newcastle 4-0 last time in the league, many feel they can pull it off in the season’s run-in.

For the first time this season, they have kept a treble of clean sheets in their last three games in all competitions, after following up the victory versus the Magpies with another disciplined 1-0 win at Olympiacos in their Europa League game on Thursday.

Mikel Arteta seem to be striking the the right chords with his management of the team, with noticeable individual improvements glimpsed, make-shift left back Bukayo Saka and striker Alexandre Lacazette the stand out names.

The latter scored for the second game running in that narrow victory in Piraeus, after having contended with a two-month goal drought and much of how his side fare in the run up to the campaign’s ending could hinge on his performances in front of goal.

Their opponents, Everton are another side that have led an impressive turnaround of fortunes in the division. Under the guide of Carlo Ancelotti, the Tofees now have an outside chance of finishing fourth, having lost just one (to Manchester City) of their last eleven league games, winning six of them.

Their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace last weekend means they are now just five points off fourth place and two over their hosts on Sunday, but you have to go as far back as January 1996 to the last time they managed to win at this ground.

Suggested bets

This game could prove to be a close one, with both sides having impressed of recent, and that could leave very little room for value in the betting. Despite Arsenal’s dominance in this fixture, Everton are expected to make it competitive and backing both teams to be on the scoresheet is one of the likely markets to take. It is prized 8/13.

Richarlison is 21/10 to score anytime, and is one player on value well equipped to find out Arsenal’s defence which have toughened up in recent weeks.
