There are two games in the Premier League to look forward to on Wednesday evening and both carry significance at the top and bottom ends of the table.
Frontrunners Arsenal welcome Everton to north London, as Mikel Arteta’s side look to claim a win that would take them back to five points clear at the top of the standings - with the Gunners 1/1 to be crowned champions this season.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are also in action as they prepare to host Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield.
|What||Arsenal v Everton|
|Where||Emirates Stadium, London|
|When||19:45, Wednesday 1st March 2023|
|Odds||Arsenal 1/3, Draw 15/4, Everton 9/1|
Arsenal might well have revenge on their minds when they take on Everton not long since the Toffees stunned the Gunners at Goodison Park in early February.
James Tarkowski’s goal in the 60th minute saw the hosts shock the Premier League frontrunners in Sean Dyche’s first game in charge of the Merseyside outfit.
The loss was in the midst of a four-game winless run for the Gunners, but the north London outfit have since responded with back-to-back wins on the road at Aston Villa and Leicester City.
Back in the home comforts of the Emirates, the Gunners will be confident of gaining revenge against an Everton side who go into this game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa.
Arteta’s side have an impressive record at home in the Premier League against the Toffees, having won seven of their last eight meetings at the Emirates.
A win for the Gunners and both sides to score would have landed in five of the last seven league meetings between these teams at the Emirates and is available at 5/2 to happen again on Wednesday.
Goals might also be on the cards in the capital, with this fixture having its fair share of high scorelines over recent meetings.
There have been no less than 27 goals scored in the last seven Premier League encounters between these teams at the Emirates and over 3.5 goals on Wednesday night is available at 2/1.
When it comes to the goalscorer markets, it could be worth backing in-form home forward Gabriel Martinelli to get on the scoresheet.
With nine goals in his first 24 Premier League appearances of the campaign so far, Martinelli is currently Arsenal’s top goalscorer in the competition.
The 21-year-old scored against both Villa and Leicester in his last two outings and also netted against Everton in a 5-1 victory at the Emirates in the final league game of last season.
Martinelli is well priced at 15/8 to Score Anytime against the Toffees.

|What||Liverpool v Wolves|

|Odds||Liverpool 1/2, Draw 15/4, Wolverhampton 5/1|
Revenge is also likely to be a motivator for Liverpool on Wednesday evening when they welcome Julen Lopetegui’s Wolves to Anfield.
Wolves added a blow to Liverpool’s top-four hopes with a 3-0 win over the Reds at Molineux on 4th February and these sides should be very familiar with one another, as they prepare for their fourth meeting of the season.
They played out a 2-2 draw in the FA Cup earlier this season, before Harvey Elliott’s goal saw the Reds progress in the replay at Molineux.
Lopetegui’s side won’t have any fear of heading to Anfield, but the West Midlands side’s form of late has been found wanting. A 1-0 defeat on home turf to strugglers Bournemouth came as a shock, before Wolves played out a 1-1 draw at Fulham.
As for the Reds, they will be determined to get back to winning ways after a frustrating 1-1 stalemate at Crystal Palace last time out.
The Merseysiders have won all of their last five Premier League games at home to Wolves and the hosts are 1/2 to secure the three points on Wednesday evening.
Just one team to score has been the way to go in this fixture over recent years, with a team winning to nil occurring in eight of their last 10 meetings in all competitions.
With that in mind, a Liverpool Win to Nil is worthy of consideration at 6/4.
