BBC pundit Chris Sutton has now predicted the outcome of Everton’s fixture against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

The Toffees welcome the Gunners to Goodison Park with Everton having won the last two home games against Mikel Arteta’s side.

However, writing for BBC Sport, Chris Sutton insists that the visitors will ‘find a way’ to overcome Everton on Sunday.

Sutton said: “Can Sean Dyche do it again against Mikel Arteta?

Another win would be massive but it’s a huge ask for Everton, even if they have been playing better at Goodison Park than their results suggest.

I think Everton will score but even if Arsenal aren’t at their best, they will still find a way to win.”

Everton have picked up just one point so far this campaign but performances against both Fulham and Wolves were generally promising, despite a lack of bite in front of goal.

However, the Toffees have since added £26m forward Beto to the ranks, who already looks to be a promising addition, while on-loan signing Arnaut Danjuma has scored twice in his last two outings for Sean Dyche’s side.

Last season’s top goalscorer Dwight McNeil made a second half appearance against Sheffield United a fortnight ago as he returns from injury, while loan signing Jack Harrison is back in training and could soon be in contention.

The Goodison crowd will as always be integral and the attacking options Dyche now has will no doubt make a huge difference, but this will be a tough test for the Toffees.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s availability is as of yet unclear following his recent injury at Villa Park, but his return to fitness would be a welcome sight.

If the England international is available, it will be interesting to see who Dyche asks to lead the line against the Gunners.
