It is quite incredible the number of chances Arsenal create and concede.

In the opening peroid at Aston Villa in midweek, the Gunners could have scored a handful of goals, after the break the defence looked anything but assured and they could have even lost the game, instead of holding on to their early lead.

Arsene Wenger's side have had a terrible time with injuries, but it is hard to get away from the fact that they defend naively at times. They have just 2 clean sheets in 14 and 4 in 22, that is just not the Arsenal way.

They may not get so lucky today and I expect both teams to get on the scoresheet. The Toffees have scored in 8 from 9 at Goodison Park and in 10 of their last 11 home and away, only failing in the derby game with Liverpool.

I am taking the "over" 2 goal option, which looks fairly safe to my eyes, for the very adventurous amongst you/us , the 2-2 draw is a very big looking price on the exchanges.

5 points "over" 2 goals Everton-Arsenal 1.77 asian line.

1/2 point 2-2 draw Betfair 21.0.

Back later.
