It is a revenge mission for Arsenal this Wednesday as they host Everton in the rescheduled seventh-round fixture of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
The Gunners suffered a rare defeat to the Merseyside club three weeks ago, falling to a 1-0 loss. That loss began a series of poor results for Mikel Arteta’s side, who went on a three-game winless run in the PL (D1, L2), eventually reducing their lead at the top of the table.
But they seem to have bounced back now, with back-to-back wins over Aston Villa and Leicester City most recently. The win over the Foxes gave them their first clean sheet in six league outings and gave them a two-point lead at the top.
Having played a game less, this match affords them the opportunity to extend the gap at the top to five points with a win. And given that they have lost just one of the last 26 home PL meetings (W21, D4) and just once at home this PL campaign (W8, D2), they will highly fancy their chances of winning this game.
Meanwhile, since defeating Everton in his first game in charge, Sean Dyche has lost twice and one in three PL games. His most recent loss was a 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa, a result that kept them firmly rooted in the relegation zone.
They will travel to the Emirates looking to win away from home against a team starting a match at the top of the table for the first time since September 1986 (since D5, L19). However, they might fancy their chances here because they’ve beaten the Gunners in four of the last five H2Hs (L1).
