Arsenal v Everton (1600 KO, Sky Sports Premier League)
It's one of those games Arsenal have loved over the years with the stats heavily in their favour and quite startling for Everton fans. Considering they play them every year it's amazing to think the Gunners haven't lost this home fixture since 1996!
The laws of probability would tell you that they're due a result, but don't bank on that coming this weekend as Arsenal just look like they're growing into themselves under Unai Emery having won four on the spin in all competitions and scoring 12 goals in the process.
Draw specialists Everton have just one win this season so far and looked all at sea during their 3-1 home defeat against West Ham last week - there's no reason to suggest Arsenal could not carve them open in similar fashion.
Both Everton's away games have ended 2-2 but they've led in both so will be kicking themselves, but they are still in tenth so all is not lost. Expectations are higher these days at Goodison, though, so Marco Silva needs to start delivering wins sharpish - it's just not likely to be this Sunday.
Score prediction: Arsenal 3-1 Everton (Sky Bet odds: 10/1)
That stats all point to an Arsenal win but more importantly the contrasting form of the two teams points to a home win as well. The Gunners actually perform better after European games over the last few years and although not usually the Europa League, their midweek win will only help their spirits going into this one.
Best bet: Arsenal win and both teams to score at 2/1
Neither team has managed a clean sheet this season, Everton have scored in every game and Arsenal have only failed to score in their season opener against Manchester City. For combination bets such as this they don't get much better.
Goalscorer bet: Richarlison anytime scorer at 4/1
Aubameyang and Lacazette always look dangerous but they're a short enough price to score, while Richarlison is an inviting price given he's still Everton's top scorer with three goals in three games. He's back from suspension and the Toffess have struggled for goals without him, so Marco Silva must start him on Sunday - plus he bagged twice for Brazil on his first start for good measure.
RequestABet: Arsenal win, both teams to score, Aubameyang & Richarlison to score
