In the Super Sunday clash this weekend, fans will be eager to see a well-performing Arsenal squad play host to the Dogs of War at the Emirates Stadium. Everton will be extremely disappointed after suffering a devastating 3-1 loss against West Ham last weekend who are currently ranked 16th overall in the Premier League. In addition, two new managers, Marco Silva and Unai Emery, will meet on Sunday where they’ll be analysing the implementation of their tactics.
Arsenal: Home Team
It was certainly a doom and gloom situation for Arsenal following their first two matches of the season. On the opening day of the Premier League, Arsenal was outplayed and outsmarted by Manchester City which was followed by an unfortunate 3-2 defeat at the hands of Chelsea. This was certainly not the start fans were expecting, especially due to the recent departure of Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger.
However, although they are experiencing a bad situation, it could have easily turned into a horrible situation if the squad continued to lose important matches and drop points. Thankfully, Arsenal managed to obtain three consecutive victories where they managed to beat Newcastle, Cardiff, and West Ham. The two recent wins by Arsenal were away games and fans will be extremely satisfied with this as most of the away games in the previous season were mostly defeats.
It might only be three matches, but those victories will certainly give loads of confidence to the team which could produce a fourth consecutive win that will improve the squad’s standings in a familiar environment on the leaderboard. Xhaka and Ozil, two exceptional football players, obtained the necessary goals in their most recent game. Hopefully they can produce the same when they face Everton on Sunday.
Everton: Away Team
Underwhelming, Standard, Mediocre. These three words are probably what fans of Everton are thinking when they summarize how their team started this season. They must be optimistic after bringing in Marco Silva along with brand-new signings, but the fact that they only claimed one victory in 5 games doesn’t display a world-class team.
They recently suffered a loss against West Ham at home, which is arguably the biggest shock to fans. It also proves that Everton aren’t anywhere close to where they need to be. They are now travelling to a stadium where they currently have a horrible record and will hope and pray that a great deal of luck will come their way.
