Arsenal a tasty bet at 13/8 to beat the Toffees

Arsenal have a good record against Everton and rate a solid bet at 13/8 with bet365 and Betfred to beat them at Goodison Park today (12.45pm KO, Live on BT Sport 1).

Everton have won just one of the last 18 matches in all competitions against the Gunners (D6, L11).

The Toffees have also won just one of their last eight Premier League games at home (D2, L5), and when they last played on their home patch blew a 2-0 lead to go down 3-2 to West Ham.

Arsenal come into the game having beem knocked out of the FA Cup by Watford and Champiosn League by Barcelona, but that may well take off the pressure and enable them to start playing their free flowing attacking football and concentrate on the league.

To me they have the players to cut apart the Everton defence, and Olivier Giroud has a great record against them.

The French striker has scored five goals in his last five games in all competitions against them, including in each of the last three league meetings.

That makes him the obvious call in the goalscorer markets and the 11/2 about him netting the opener with the likes of bet365 and Paddy Power makes plenty of appeal, as does the 7/4 available with Betfred about him in the anytime market.
