The first revenge tie of the day. Both Arsenal and Liverpool host the opponents that surprised them back on the 4th February. In Sean Dyche’s first game in charge he managed to clinch the win over league leaders Arsenal in typical Dychey style. The Gunners will hope lightning doesn’t strike twice and instead make use of their game in hand on title rivals City and go 5 points clear at the top.

My Bet Builder Picks of the Pack
There’s some crazy value in this game having a look at the pack and how the game unfolded last month. If you add all of them below to your bet builder it comes through at 4/1, but feel free to add whichever selections you like.
Arsenal vs Everton
3 out of the 4 selections I’ve picked here came in the last meeting between the two sides last month at Goodison Park.
In that game, Everton received 4 cards to Arsenal’s 1.
Arsenal average just 1.58 cards this season, with their opponents averaging 2.38.
Everton average 2.21 cards per game, outweighing their opponents figures too.
Michael Oliver averages 3.80 cards per game, and I can see his eyes lighting up with the likes of Amadou Onana (7 cards) and even Jordan Pickford’s timewasting (5 cards).
I loved watching the battle ensue between Mykolenko and Saka last time out.
He fouled the winger 3 times, and ended up in the ref’s book.
The Ukrainian averages 1.05 fouls p/90.
Saka across the season has been fouled 1.83 times p/90 and attempts 4.30 dribbles.
On the other side of that battle is of course Saka. He in fact averages more fouls than his opposite number (1.17).
I expect the winger to want to get his payback on his counterpart, and he’s always prone to a late challenge if he sees player’s getting away with fouls on him.
Just last time out against Leicester he committed 3 fouls, and he has made at least one foul in 3 of his last 4.
In the last match, despite being away from home Arsenal had 71% of the ball and attempted 639 passes.
The player that attempted the most was Zinchenko.
In his inverted role, he finds himself in the majority of action and he attempted 98 passes.
I’ve backed him to get just 70 here, which is only just above his season average of 69.9 p/90.
Across the season, Arsenal have averaged 59% possession to Everton’s 46%.
