Arsenal took another huge leap forward in their quest for the Premier League title by beating Manchester United last time out.

The Gunners left it late to claim victory but it was one that kept them five points clear of Manchester City with a game in hand. They do play City in the league soon, however.

For now, it means that Mikel Arteta’s men are coping with almost everything thrown at them and are many fans’ favourites to lift the trophy in a few months.

Everton, on the other hand, are in desperate trouble. Currently sitting in 19th place, level on points with Southampton at the bottom, they haven’t won a game since October.

However, having appointed Sean Dyche as manager, they now have someone in place who can lead their players more effectively. 

It’s a long road until the end of the season and it doesn’t come tougher than this.

Everton FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Sean Dyche will bring resilience and organisation as manager

     Everton have won three of their last four games against Arsenal

Reasons to be fearful:

     Winless from their last eight away games

     Squad is in a weaker position after January transfer window

Everton badly needed to get the transfer window right with the club stalling in 19th place, although they enter February in a weakened position.

The Toffees brought no new players into the club, although allowed Anthony Gordon to leave and join Newcastle in a £45m switch. It hasn’t gone down well with supporters.

The one glimmer of light for Everton is the appointment of Sean Dyche, who was a stalwart at Burnley for so many years. He stands as good a chance as any at turning this group of players around.

He couldn’t have hoped for a tougher start, however. Although Everton have a good record against Arsenal in recent seasons, their current form is dreadful.

Star Man – Demarai Gray

Everton’s best player this season has had little support from his teammates but must now work with Calvert-Lewin and try and score the goals that will get his club out of this mess.

Arsenal FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

     Strengthened well by bringing in Trossard and Jorginho

     Could win their 100th game against Everton – the first team to achieve that landmark

Reasons to be fearful

     Lost their FA Cup game against Manchester City

     Poor record away to Everton recently

Arsenal broke down another barrier in the way of Premier League glory by beating Manchester United in their last game.

In a close encounter, one that reminded fans of classic battles from the days of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger, a last-minute winner gave the Gunners the three points they needed to stay clear at the top.

They’ve also spent wisely in the transfer window, acquiring Brighton’s Leandro Trossard and Chelsea’s Jorginho to strengthen important positions in the second half of the season.

Now, they can’t afford to let things slip. Two games against Manchester City fall within the next two and a bit months. Tricky tests against Brentford and Aston Villa come before the end of February.

This game could be a potential banana skin too, with Everton looking to save their season by appointing Sean Dyche as manager.

Star Man – Bukayo Saka

Saka’s exceptional drive from the edge of the area helped the Gunners on their way to three points over United. He has been at his brilliant best this season and thrives with quality players around him.

     Everton fans will be right behind new manager

     Expect Arsenal to dominate possession

     Could be a closer game than people imagine

You cannot underestimate the impact of bringing a new manager into a club, particularly one of Sean Dyche’s stature. He’s Everton’s best hope of survival this season.

It will take him time to implement his tactics and ideas but we should see a better Everton going forward than the one under Frank Lampard. 

Whether they will be better here is another question. Arsenal are on fire and, despite losing in the FA Cup, have an excellent run of form behind them.

You’d expect another three points for the Gunners here, but it could be closer than some people imagine.
