English Premier League predictions for Man Utd – Arsenal
Few days after their draw against Manchester United at the Old Trafford Everton hosts Arsenal at the Goodison Park. Let’s take a look at this fixture in our English Premier League predictions.
Duncan Ferguson is just a temporary manager for Everton, but so far he’s doing pretty well with the job. In his first game he managed to lead his team to a win over Chelsea, while few days ago Everton won a point during their difficult visit to the Old Trafford. This is pretty good for a caretaking manager without any experience so far. According to some rumours Everton could hire Carlo Ancelotti really soon. But right now it’s Duncan Ferguson who manages the team.
Because of the poor results under the management of Marco Silva Everton are now 16th in the Premier League with just 18 points won. This is not what they hoped for in the beginning of the season. Everton has a solid squad with really good players in it, but they made a lot of bad results since the start of the campaign.
Arsenal are in a similar position. Just like Everton, they are currently managed by a caretaker – Fredrik Ljungberg. At this moment the Gunners are negotiating with their former player Mikel Arteta who must become the new manager. The only problem is the compensation which Manchester City want for Pep Guardiola’s former assistant.
Just like Everton, Arsenal need points at the moment. The Gunners are now 10th in the league with 22 points, which is 7 points behind the 4th Chelsea. They still have a chance to fight for a Top 4 finish, but only if they do really well from now until the end of the campaign.
In our English Premier League predictions we believe that it’s going to be very interesting to watch this game because of the delicate situation of both teams. Everton are in high mood because of their last two results, but let’s see what Arsenal can offer.
