Everton’s love of late goals to see them reverse trend v Arsenal

| 05.04.2014

Having dropped out of the title running Arsenal are now looking warily over their shoulder at Everton, who have an immense opportunity to take pole position in the race for fourth if they can beat the Gunners at Goodison.

A win for fifth-placed Everton in front of the Sky Sports cameras and they will close to within just a point of Arsenal in fourth , with a midweek game in hand at home to Crystal Palace to follow.

Such a momentous victory can be backed at 6/4 with Ladbrokes and although historically they have fared particularly badly against the 19/10-rated opposition in the Premier League ,there is plenty of reason to believe they can flip things on their head in this one.

Although Everton haven’t beaten Arsenal in the league in 13 attempts, the last three have been drawn (12/5) and anyone
who saw the 1-1 draw at the Emirates will be aware that the Toffees played the Londoners off the park for the first 45.

And where Arsene Wenger’s side have stuttered badly in recent times, especially on the road against opposition from the higher echelons, Roberto Martinez’s Toffees are flying.

After a wobble of their own, Everton have rediscovered the swagger which they showed in the reverse fixture and are on their best run of the season, winning their last five straight league games.

Meanwhile, their home form is only bettered by the current top three where Everton have won 11 of their 15 Goodison Park outings, only tasting defeat once all season.

One notable string to Everton’s bow that can be the difference here is their ability to score decisive goals in the last ten minutes of games.

No other side has grabbed more points than the Merseyside’s via this method and an Everton goal between the 75thmin – full-time looks a great shout at 21/10.
