Arsenal will look for a win to give ourselves a chance of snatching fourth place when we take on Everton at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

A run of four league wins in a row has given us a glimmer of hope of qualifying for the Champions League but unfortunately we’re relying on others to help us out.

Tuesday night’s 2-0 win over Sunderland saw us close the gap on Liverpool to just one point so it means we need Middlesbrough to get a positive result at Anfield and for us to beat Everton to snatch fourth.

We should be confident of doing our bit as we have an excellent record against Everton and they come in to the game having not won in their last seven games away from home.

However, even a win over the Toffees is unlikely to be enough and we’re facing the very real possibility of missing out on Champions League football for the first time in 20 years.

Team News

Laurent Koscielny is facing a late fitness test on a calf injury that kept him out of the Sunderland game but the French international trained today so he looks to be winning his race.

Aaron Ramsey is fit and available for selection despite limping out of the game in midweek with an apparent muscle injury so he should be OK to retain his place alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield.

However, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains unavailable as he’s still nursing a hamstring injury that’s seen him miss the last three matches.

Everton will be without goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg due to a groin injury so Joel Robles should retain his place in goal.

Ronald Koeman will also be without the services of Aaron Lennon, James McCarthy, Seamus Coleman, Ramiro Funes Mori and Yannick Bolasie.

Predicted Score

Arsenal 2-1 Everton: We are unbeaten in our last 20 home games against Everton and we always win on the last day of the season so I’m expecting us to collect all three points. Everton are a decent side under Koeman and no doubt they’ll give us a good game but I fancy us to edge it 2-1. Unfortunately I don’t think that will be enough to secure fourth place.

Betting Tips

Arsenal are the 2/5 favourites to win this game with the bookmakers but for those who want a little more value, I’ll come up with a few bets I like the look of. I nailed all three of my tips for the Sunderland game so hopefully I can pick a few more winners tomorrow:
