Will Everton stop Arsenal overtaking Tottenham ?
Everton is in a good run. The win against Chelsea last month was their first in 26 games against top six opposition.
Arsenal away form is awful . Only 5 wins on the road this season for Emery's team.
Everton on a good run with two wins in the last two games.
ARSENAL take on Everton at Goodison Park on today and Gylfi Sigurdsson believes his side can cause an upset at home.
Sigurdsson is confident ahead of the clash against the Gunners as Everton come into the game off the back of two straight wins.The Toffees have also managed to keep four clean sheets in their past five matches and Sigurdsson hope a good result will help Everton push up the table.
The 29-year-old admits it won’t be an easy task facing Arsenal who are looking to secure a Champions League qualifying spot but feels Everton can build some momentum if they can take something away from the game.“ It’s so important in this league as back-to-back wins gives you momentum. “
Arsenal are on a very good run. They are going for the top four so every game for them is crucial but if we can build on the last couple of performances, get something out of the game, then hopefully we can finish the season strongly.” Arsenal go into the game in fourth, one point behind rivals Tottenham in third, but with a game in hand. Everton are currently 10th in the table but are only four points off Leicester who sit in 7th.
Meanwhile Arsenal is looking forward to a 6th victory out of the last 7 games.
Unai Emery says Mesut Ozil will be allowed to start more away matches because he is now “playing like a team player”.
Superlative home form has propelled Arsenal into the top four and Ozil has been a big part of helping the Gunners to eight successive Premier League victories at the Emirates Stadium.
