Everton may have a secret weapon to cause Arsenal problems

Arsenal take on Everton this coming Sunday, and in that match, they’ll be hoping to do something they haven’t done since 2017, which is beat Everton at Goodison Park.

With three wins and a draw, the Gunners come into the game feeling confident that they can finally overcome the Toffees on their own turf.

The Toffees have yet to win this season, and they may be desperate to rectify that against Arsenal. Arsenal will have to be at their best to avoid always dropping points to them as usual.

So which Everton player should the Arsenal team be concerned about going to the game? According to the ex-Everton defender Michael Ball, Sean Dyche should start their new striker, Beto, since he could provide his team with an element of surprise.

Writing for the Liverpool Echo, Ball spoke about Beto. He said, “A really big positive for us is we’ve got options in the forward area right now. When we’re pushing for goals there’s options to come on.

“I’d be happy for Beto to start against Arsenal; he’s showed enough.

“I’ve been really impressed with Beto’s performances, he’s only had two games but he’s got something different than Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The way he holds the ball up, the way he fights, it’s like he enjoys that a lot more.

“He’s new for the opposition, so might have that element of surprise, and that’s what we have lacked for many seasons. Beto’s a different animal to Calvert-Lewin, and that will cause Arsenal problems.”

Beto is one of those strong strikers who is excellent at holding on to the ball and who, if Everton plays to his strengths, may lead them to one of the most devastating attacks; he scored 10 goals in 33 appearances for Udinese last season. If Sean Dyche follows Ball’s suggestion and starts him on Sunday evening, William Saliba and Gabriel will have to be at their best to render him ineffective by denying him any “breathing space”.

  1. Hmm, haven’t we got our own “secret weapons” since we last played them?
    Havertz, Rice?
    If we don’t come away with all three points, then questions will have to be answered.

  2. Why is this guy being called a secret weapon, he may have only joined Everton recently but we know he is in their squad so he’s hardly a secret.

  3. Talk about hyperbole!

    A not at all secret , “secret weapon!” HOW l long for truth and NOT hype to appear in some articles!

  4. They don’t have anything to stop us as evident whenever they come to our ground for their annual obliteration but when the gods of football is behind a team they can beat anyone hopefully we beat them but……..

  5. Arsenal should start from the last game with more fire and brutality. Of course, no game is easy in the PL but setting your mind to the prize will take you over the line.

  6. It’s a must-win for Arsenal, this game. We cannot afford a repeat of what happened there last season or even what happened with Fulham at the Emirates in August.

  7. The most important thing will be not to give them customary gift of one goal in the firths 15 minutes.In the Emirates we can recover from it but not at Goodison Park.
