A Holding own-goal and a Mina header trumped Pepe’s spot kick as the Toffees ran out 2-1 winners in he reverse match. Can they do the double against the Gunners for the first time in recent history?
Gunners look to dent Ancelotti’s top four hopes
Arsenal would most likely need to win the Europa League for a chance at Europe given that they’re six points adrift of the European spots. They play Villarreal in the semis of the Europa League next week and would face either Man United or Roma in the final if they get past the Yellow Submarine. In their most recent game, a late equalizer from Nketiah snatched a point for the Gunners as they played out a 1-1 draw against relegation-threatened Fulham.
Ancelotti’s troops are still in the discussion for Europe but the hype is slowly dwindling taking into account their recent form. With no wins in five and three consecutive draws, it would take quite a lot for them to get into the top four with the side currently six points Chelsea having played a game less. A Sigurdsson brace made sure they didn’t lose to Spurs with the game ending in a 2-2 draw.
