Everton vs Arsenal: How to live stream, who will win and pre-match buzz around crucial game for Mikel Arteta and struggling Gunners
Carlo Ancelotti's men are on a winning spree pipping Leicester City and Chelsea. An abysmal Arsenal would just mean another opportunity to cement their place at the top of the table
Arsenal is struggling and is in danger of underperforming for the second time in the English Premier League. Four wins in 13 games is a record not many would have expected from the Gunners, but they're there. It isn't a pretty picture with Mikel Arteta at a loss of words. Their lack of a quality, creative playmaker coupled with a form slump has seen them slip the rungs of the points table ladder quite rapidly.
Their record in the last five games sees three losses and two draws. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's lone goal was the saving grace in their clash against Southampton and they take on a resurgent Everton next.
Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti's men are on a winning spree pipping Leicester City and Chelsea. An abysmal Arsenal would just mean another opportunity to mow down another top-six team and cement their place at the top of the table. Here's everything you need to know about the all-important clash.
Kickoff is scheduled for December 19, 2020, at 12.30 pm ET.

Arsenal has enjoyed a dominant 108 wins in their 200 encounters with Everton since 1905. That should come as solace for Arteta who is pretty much out of answers at the moment with the Gunners getting miserable by the game. Granit Xhaka and Gabriel Magalhaes are serving suspensions. Gabriel Martinelli and Thomas Partey are injured, and Eddie Nketiah may make way for Alexandre Lacazette. If there is some form of good news, it has to be the return of Hector Bellerin.
Seamus Coleman might make a return for the home game while Ben Godfrey is set to fill in for Lucas Digne. Everton will miss the services of James Rodriguez, who is still recovering from injury.
Who will win?
Everton has looked a different side this year and is no more pushovers. In fact, that they're favorites to win over a struggling Arsenal shouldn't come as a surprise. We see this going the Toffees way.
