Mikel Arteta, Arsenal midfielder, said that this weekend his old club Everton will put their title credentials to the test, and pay per head sportsbooks can’t wait to see what will happen on the pitch when this match gets underway.
Pay per head sportsbooks saw that in August 2011, a 31-year-old Arteta left Goodison Park on transfer deadline day after six seasons on Merseyside, where he turned into a crucial player.
Arteta and many pay per head sportsbooks were happy to see that the Toffees did not come unstuck since Roberto Martinez took over from David Moyes, whom he defeated on Wednesday night with a very impressive 1-0 away victory at Manchester United.
Everton are in fifth place, behind Liverpool on goal difference, and price per head services can see that they trail leaders Arsenal by seven points after the Gunners’ midweek victory over Hull.
The Spaniard knows that his old side will give a very difficult test of just how far the Gunners can go in 2014, and many pay per head sportsbooks believe that they’ll go very far.
“Everton are having a great season and they have got great results against top teams, which is not easy,” noted Arteta.
“It was a big result (at Manchester United), it was massively important for them and will boost their confidence, so we are going to face a really difficult team for sure.”
Arteta added: “I know the fundamentals of the club and I was happy with the way they dealt with the transfer window.
“I think they did really well and improved the team compared to where they were before. They deserve to be (up) there.”
Arteta believes that the competition for places in the squad helped the Gunners to a great start in the Premier League.
“We have struggled in the last years a little bit to do that because of the numbers and injuries and now we have almost everyone fit, apart from Lukas Podolski and Alex (Oxlade-Chamberlain), that is a very good sign,” added Arteta.
“I think it (competition for places) is great. Everybody has to be on their toes and everybody is important.
