Arsenal travel to Goodison Park on Sunday to face Everton, as they eye a top four finish in Unai Emery’s first season in charge. Arsenal are now in pole position to qualify for the Champions League next season, sitting fourth in the table with 63 points, one below north London rivals Tottenham, level with Chelsea and two above Manchester United.
However, the Gunners have a game in hand on their competition, and exclusively play teams outside the top six in their remaining fixtures, meaning that – so long as they fix their problematic away form – they have to be considered favourites.
Arsenal have the chance to go third in the Premier League if they can avoid defeat to Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon. The Gunners can leapfrog their north London rivals, Tottenham, with just a point on Merseyside, as the battle for Champions League places continues to rage. Everton are 10th and are in a fight to secure a top half finish, in what has been a pretty disappointing season for Marco Silva’s side. However, victory over Unai Emery’s men would notch them up a spot in the table with just five games left to play.
Everton, meanwhile, have recorded back-to-back league victories for only the second time this season, taking them up to 10th with 43 points. Although it’s been a difficult campaign for Marco Silva in his first season with the Toffees, he will be targeting the 7th position currently occupied by Wolves, which most likely ensures Europa League qualification for next season.
