Can Arsenal Regain Top Spot at Fortress Goodison??

Arsene Wenger appeared outwardly unfazed after his side were held to a goalless draw at Fratton Park on Boxing Day, conceding the lead in the Premiership title race to Alex Ferguson’s, Manchester United. Wenger will however, privately be concerned that the Gunners have taken just two points from their last three away games, and on Saturday face a very tough trip to in-form Everton. So far in the Christmas period the French boss has resisted the temptation to make use of Robin Van Persie, recently returned from injury, but he may feel the Dutchman can make the difference to the Londoners on the road.

Everton continued their exceptional run of form beating Bolton 2-0 at Goodison Park on Boxing Day, their sixth straight home win in all competitions. Tim Cahill was again on the score-sheet highlighting his importance to the side, while Spaniard, Mikel Arteta who had been briefly sidelined with illness, also gave another influential performance. The Toffees are maintaining their pressure on the four Champions League places, currently in sixth position. David Moyes’ side have beaten Arsenal on their last two visits by an identical 1-0 score-line, a similar result would see them cover their spread as under-dogs at PinnacleSports.com who go Everton 2.020 (0/scratch & +0.5) with Arsenal 1.909 (0/scratch & -0.5)
