Arsenal v Everton Build-up & Predicted Score for must-win season-ender

Arsenal will play host to Everton today in their final Premier League outing of he 2021-22 campaign, with a potential place in the top-four still on the line.

The Gunners arrive with everything still to play for, sitting two points behind rivals Tottenham in the hunt for the final Champions League berth, while today’s opponents can rest easy having secured their safety from relegation with a comeback win over Leeds United.

Much of our focus will be on the other result, knowing that Spurs need to lose in order to open the door for us to leapfrog them in the table today, but the players themselves will need to do their bit by sealing the win which will give us at least a chance of earning that top-four spot.

We go into today’s encounter on the back of consecutive defeats after losing to both Tottenham and Newcastle away from home, and the return to the Emirates should give us an important boost today. The fans will know what this could potentially mean, and I believe they will provide the twelfth man needed for today.

The Blues don’t have the worst form coming into today’s game either. They have three wins from their last five which has seen them earn enough points to assure themselves of their place in the top division of English football They could be forgiven for taking their foot off the pedal after sealing their survival however, and today could be more of a walk in the park for their players knowing that the hard work has been done.

While we haven’t been at our best over our last two matches, I still don’t imagine that they will let us down in front of our home crowd today. I believe we will actually win this one convincingly and put on a display for the Emirates crowd, and am predicting a nice 3-0 win over Frank Lampard’s side.

I hope I’m wrong, but I struggle to believe it will be enough to seal a CL spot however, but we will just have to keep our fingers and toes crossed on that one.

What are your predictions for today’s clash?


Tags Arsenal v Everton Everton


  1. We will probably win, but will most likely finish 5th which will be a disappointment after having 4th place in our grasp for so long. Transfers and next season my head space is at now. Just not interested in the game a little today. Will check the score but won’t be watching.

  2. Can’t see us winning or spuds loosing so will miss out out on champions league football and rightly so had the opportunity to seal it and bottled it when the pressure was on now paying the price plus nowhere near good enough for champions league would have been very embarrassing to watch!

  3. 1-1
    Or Everton win

    News will filter through from the Norwich game that the spuds are tearing the deflated/relegated team a new one. This will have a negative effect on our morale and performance seeing as we will already be in the midst of a tight game.

    Everton on the other hand bouyed by their new found safety will want to show what they can do today and Frank Lampard as ex chelski player, captain and manager will want to help bury our CL hopes.

    Really think that Everton under their new ambitious ownership may well end up finishing above us in the league next season. If they spend/recruit well I see them being in the mix for top 6 if not 4.

  4. It’s good to be optimistic but there’s need to balance it with reality. We had top 4 in our hands but we carelessly threw it away. I don’t believe Spurs worked this hard only to lose to Norwich a relegated team at the last match of the season. Let’s simply accept what we deserve and plan to achieve better next season.

  5. Useless games. Deep down all Arsenal fans are feeling miserable today because of what may have been. We had 4th spot in our grasp. I hope Arteta loses his perfect hairline today and goes completely bold by next week.
