General view outside Goodison Park before the match

Everton and Arsenal will face each other in the Premier League on Tuesday evening.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that both Everton and Arsenal will score on Tuesday evening.

Everton will take on Arsenal at Goodison Park in the Premier League later this evening.

Owen believes that both the Toffees and the Gunners will find the net.

“The Blues have only won one of their last eighteen against Arsenal and the Gunners are looking for a 12th win in the PL at Goodison Park,” the Englishman wrote on Betvictor.com.

“Everton will have to defend better than they did at Vicarage Road to stand any chance against a rampant Arsenal, but I wouldn’t write off the hosts in another game where I expect to see goals.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Both Teams To Score at 4/6.”

Playing at home will give Everton an advantage, but Arsenal will head into the Premier League match at Goodison Park as favourites.

The Gunners have the better squad and are also in better form at the moment.

The North London outfit will head into the game on the back of a 3-1 victory over Stoke City at the Emirates Stadium in the league.

Everton can pick up a point this evening, but as Owen says, they have to defend better.

It is hard to see Ronald Koeman’s side win against Arsenal, but they can certainly draw if they defend well and take their chances.

Everton won four of their first five league games but have only earned one victory in 10 subsequent matches, according to BBC Sport.
