Arsenal needs a miracle to happen to reach the Champions League next season. If Manchester City or Liverpool slip against their opponents, Arsenal will have a chance to jump over them and extend their Champions League odyssey.

Everton is a tough nut to crack and despite the fact that they have no competitive motives in this fixture regarding place in the standings. Ronald Koeman's squad will, for sure, try to make things unpleasant for the Gunners. They like to play big games, and since they have no result pressure, they just might relax tonight and start displaying some good football.
Arsenal News And Form
Lately, Arsene Wenger's team plays an excellent football. They have 4 consecutive victories in which they conceded only once, and on 3 occasions they kept a clean sheet. Also, during that span, they scored at least 2 goals in each encounter. In the last 9 games, they have 7 victories and only 2 defeats, and we're beginning to question ourselves what would have happened if Arsenal played like this throughout the whole season. Their defense is looking exquisite, and in 5 out of the last 6 games, we saw under 2.5 goals thanks to the back line. It is a pity that they started playing in this rhythm few weeks before the end of the season.
