Arsenal vs. Everton: the first of a long stretch away

New, comments

And the Gunners need to find a way to win.

Arsenal head to Goodison Park, now well into the home stretch in the league.

It’s really more of an away stretch—five of the Gunners’ seven remaining games are away from home, and they’ll likely need to improve on their away record in the next few weeks if they want to keep that 3rd spot that they have now. Arsenal have managed to take a little less than half of the away points available to them, which doesn’t sound too good, but that makes them 7th in the league in away points, which isn’t that bad.

Winning on someone else’s turf is hard, but Arsenal have put together a handful of good wins lately—if they can keep even some of that going, then they might be headed back to the Champions League next season.

Lucas Torreira is still serving his red card-induced suspension, and Granit Xhaka may miss today’s match with a groin tweak—he sat out against Newcastle, and those injuries don’t heal quickly. Laurent Koscielny will also likely be out today, which means a center back pairing of Sokratis and Skhodran Mustafi.
