Analysis and possible outcomes for Arsenal vs Everton

Arsenal, who has been in superb form this year, just lost to United and dropped a point. The Gunners have so far averaged over two goals per game in the Premier League. The Gunners’ defense has also been strong; following such pushing, they only gave up about 1.5 goals. With nine goals combined, the combination of Martinelli, Odegaard, and Jesus has found its footing.

Everton, on the other hand, has appeared to be playing solid defense, but the toffees’ inability to produce goals has ultimately proved to be their downfall. Team shots combined per goal are pitiful, at 6. Their forward’s shooting accuracy is under median, hovering around 30%.

Everton tactics and strategy

Since Lampard’s arrival, fans have nearly turned formation predictions into a game. The former Chelsea manager doesn’t know which starting lineup or structure will work best. 

Everton’s pressuring is subpar under Lampard for a reason. Players must cooperate to block passing routes, provide angled pressure, man-mark choices close to the ball, and then make sure the lines are compact in order to successfully use a high block.

Arsenal tactics and strategy

Since then, Mikel Arteta has switched from the 3-4-2-1 formation to the more adaptable and dynamic 4-2-3-1 formation. 

With the additions of William Saliba and Zinchenko this season, the defense, which was perhaps the part of the field that needed the most improvement, has augmented the offensive drive with defensive Solidarity. 

The most well-planned midfielder is Arteta, with Partey and Xhaka providing offensive and defensive support, respectively. Martin Odegaard, the aggressive midfielder, has assisted Arteta in attacking by allowing him to take advantage of Saka and Martinelli, two Wingers. In place of Aubayemeng, Gabriel Jesus has been a fantastic addition to the Arsenal. Gabriel Jesus offers both an attacking threat and a dribbling edge.
