John Barnes predicts Everton v Arsenal result, goalscorers

Everton Goodison

Everton and Arsenal will face each other in the Premier League this weekend.

Former Liverpool and Newcastle United winger John Barnes has predicted on that the Premier League game between Everton and Arsenal this weekend will end in a 1-1 draw.

Everton will take on Arsenal at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

“Everton have got the bit between their teeth after the FA Cup win over Chelsea, but this is a must-win match for Arsenal if they still have any hopes of challenging for the title,” Barnes wrote on

“I think they will balance one another out on the day, though. Goalscorers – Romelu Lukaku and Olivier Giroud.”

Everton have been underachieving this season, but they have a good team who can give Arsenal a run for their money.

The Toffees have virtually nothing to play for in the league between now and the end of the season, while the Gunners are still in the hunt for the league title.

Arsenal have to win at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon in order to retain their chances of catching Leicester City, but there is a good chance that Barnes’s prediction could come true.

The North London outfit have not been playing well in recent weeks, and their results have also been disappointing.

For Arsenal to win against Everton on Saturday afternoon, they have to score the opening goal of the match.
