Everton vs. Arsenal. Two thunderous strikes by Demarai Gray delivered three precious points for Everton in Everton vs. Arsenal match. On a night of protest then jubilation inside Goodison Park, Everton ended its eight-match winless run by rallying for a 2-1 victory over Arsenal on Monday in Premier League 2021-22 — and it was all thanks to a winger whose offseason arrival from Bayer Leverkusen for 1.7 million pounds ($2.25 million) is proving a bargain.
Arsenal and Everton
Arsenal and Everton both try to bounce back from rough midweek losses when they meet for an English Premier League match on Monday at Goodison Park. Arsenal (7-2-5) lost 3-2 on Thursday to a Manchester United team that had won just once in its previous eight league matches.
But the Gunners have lost to four of the league’s top five teams in scoring, and Everton doesn’t have a lot of firepower with star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin injured.
The Toffees (4-3-7) are winless in their last eight matches, but they beat the Gunners in both meetings last season. Everton has scored one goal in its last four matches, with that coming in a 4-1 loss to Liverpool on Wednesday.
The kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET in Liverpool, England. Arsenal is the +102 favorite (risk $100 to win $102) on the 90-minute money line in Caesars Sportsbook’s latest Everton vs. Arsenal odds.

Why you should back Arsenal
It has all been coming together for the Gunners since their 0-0-3 start. They lost to Brentford in their opener, but the other four losses have come to Chelsea, Man City, Liverpool, and Man U. They have had some trouble scoring, but Emile Smith Rowe has been in peak form, and he scored in the loss to the Red Devils.
He has five goals and two assists in league play, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has seven in 16 overall matches. Martin Odegaard also scored in Thursday’s match, but his penalty led to the winning goal, so he will be looking to atone.
Odegaard was among the signings as the Gunners spent big money this summer. Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale also was among those additions and has made a major impact. He has six clean sheets in 11 matches, saving almost 81 percent of shots on target.
Arsenal has allowed 20 goals in 17 games in all competitions, with nine coming in the first three EPL games and seven in losses to Liverpool and Man United. Everton holds the ball less than 41 percent of the time and puts 27 percent of its shots on target, both numbers in the bottom four in the league.
Why you should back Everton
The Toffees aren’t the same team without Calvert-Lewin, who will miss a few more weeks with a quadriceps injury. That means Richarlison, Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend will remain the keys to the attack. Gray leads the team with four goals, Townsend has three and Richarlison has two, and each has set up two goals.
Richarlison should be fully healthy after returning from injury Wednesday, and Gray scored the lone goal in the Merseyside derby drubbing. Both teams have scored 17 goals, while Arsenal has conceded 20 and the Toffees have yielded 24.
Everton will have an extra day of rest, and manager Rafa Benitez should be able to formulate a plan to limit an Arsenal attack that has struggled to finish its chances. The Toffees also will have some confidence from their strong recent record against Arsenal. Everton won 2-1 at Goodison Park last December and 1-0 at the Emirates in April.
The Toffees have posted three clean sheets in going 3-1-1 in the last five matchups. They have scored 11 of their 17 goals this season at Goodison Park, while the Gunners have five goals while conceding 14 on the road.
