3,676 pints of lager, 664 hours of porn, and a 150/1 shot when Everton face Arsenal at the Emirates

It has been 19 years since Everton beat Arsenal away from home, and we have documented all the important worldly things that have happened in that time

by Josh Powell | February 26, 2015

On January 20 1996, George Michael knocked Michael Jackson’s Earth Song off number one, ‘Poop Scoop’ legislation came closer to being passed as law, and an 84th minute winner from Andrei Kanchelskis gave Everton a 2-1 win away to Arsenal.

The best part of two decades later and George Michael hasn’t been seen since falling out of his car on the M1, pooing on the street will cost you up to £500 (or if your dog does it it’ll cost him £75) and Andrei Kanchelskis is chilling out in Latvia after getting relegated as manager of FC Jurmala.

A lot has changed in those 19 years, but Everton still haven’t managed to pick up an away win at Arsenal – despite 20 attempts in all competitions. And an awful lot has happened in the world since…

Almost20Years

Yes, that’s right. The earth has moved 11,156,800,000 miles through space, and the average man has watched almost a months worth of porn non-stop, yet the Toffees still haven’t managed to beat Arsenal. And the odds don’t suggest anything will change on Sunday either. The Toffees have won just two of their last 14 games in the Premier League and have lost six of their last seven on the road, while Arsenal have won the last nine games at the Emirates in all competitions.

Unsurprisingly then, the Paddy Power traders have put their higher level maths to good use, and priced Everton up as the big 5/1 outsiders. The Gunners are 8/15 at home to inflict more misery on the Everton fans travelling down to the capital. The number-crunchers have been hard at work in Power Tower, and have found that sticking £10 on Everton every week would currently leave you -£134.20 for the season. That’s the second worst profit and loss record in the league (behind Sunderland) and only goes to emphasise why Arsenal are a better punt.

If you’re after a sniff of value however, it may be worth looking at a cheeky 150/1 scorecast which has plenty of value behind it…

  • Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny is the third most profitable player to have been backing to score first this season in the Premier League. He has a profit of £230 if you had been putting £5 on him to score first every week. In comparison Santi Cazorla’s profit is £75 and Everton striker Lukaku’s is just £22.50
  • Backing the Gunners to win 2-1 every week would currently leave you with a €93 profit for the season. Five of Arsenal’s 14 wins have been by the 2-1 scoreline, a strike rate of 36 per cent

Clearly Arsene Wenger’s side are the team to include in your accumulators this weekend, but if you want a bit of jam on top, the 150/1 scorecast might give you a decent run for a quid. In fact there’s probably more chance of Craig David getting another top 10 single than Everton winning at the Emirates this weekend.
