Betting Preview: Arsenal

@Everton

Everton can close the gap on third-placed Arsenal to just one point if they win at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

David Moyes’ side are 10/3 with Paddy Power to follow up Saturday’s 2-0 victory over QPR with another victory and keep themselves in the frame for a coveted top-four spot and Champions League qualification.

Midfielder Darron Gibson sent the Toffees on their way against Rangers after his strike gave the home side the lead on 40 minutes, while striker Victor Anichebe sealed the points in the 56th minute by flicking Sylvain Distin’s header past Julio Cesar.

The visitors are 22/1 to repeat that scoreline against Arsene Wenger’s side, who have never finished outside the top four during the Frenchman’s near 17-year reign at the London club.

Gibson is 18/1 to get the first goal of the game with Paddy Power or 10/1 to score first for his team, while Anichebe – who also hit the post on Saturday after some great work by Kevin Mirallas – is 8/1 to hit the net first and 5/2 to score at any time against the Gunners.

The goal was Anichebe’s eighth goal of the season and the Nigerian international is desperate to reach double figures with just six games left.

“I feel like I am getting stronger every single game and I feel like the team is getting stronger too,” he said.

“Hopefully I can finish the season with a couple more goals to get to double figures.”

The QPR result earned Everton a fourth Premier League win in five games, three of which have brought clean sheets.

The Toffees are 4/1 with Paddy Power to keep another on Tuesday night and 15/2 to win to nil against the North Londoners.

Everton have scored in 12 of their 15 league games on the road and are 4/11 to score against Arsenal - or 7/5 to score the first goal against the Gunners.
