Premier League: Arsenal vs Everton; Will the Gunners go above the Blues?

After the shambolic ridiculous farcical couple of days which will go down in the football history books there is still games left to play believe it or not.

There is still European places to play for and they are to play for now the Super League nonsense has been put to bed.

These two clubs have been stumbling near enough since Christmas with inconsistent form but there’s still a change for Europe which both sides will want unless it’s the Europa Conference League.

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is looking forward to the game as he said: “Yeah it’s a really important game, not decisive but important. I think we are ready. 

“It’s true that we didn’t have a good moment in the last month, but now we are much better.”

Everton need to be much better however they’ll be playing an Arsenal side with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alex Lacazette so the Blues chances should be a bit better.

As well as that Ancelotti confirmed that Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph and Bernard are all fit.

So the calvary is back for the Italian who will be hoping Sigurdsson can have another good performance against North London opposition after his two goals last time out against Tottenham Hotspur.

Ancelotti talking about that game said: “Honestly after the game I was happy about the performance. 

“We were more aggressive, played with more intensity and this is the format we want to use in this kind of game.

“We tried to press more forward, keeping the defensive line higher than normal and I think this gives us the possibility to have more chances.”

Arsenal will have their Europa League semi-final in the back of their minds so whether manager Mikel Arteta makes changes for that remains to be seen.

Everton surely cannot let an Arsenal team who have been flirting with mid-table mediocrity all season go ahead of them, it would be a serious let down and the end of anything to play for.

Realistically it’s a must win otherwise it’s another season of disappointment.
