It’s been a season of rapid progress for Mikel Arteta’s young Arsenal side, with a return to European football guaranteed no matter what happens on the final day of the season. The Gunners are still in with a shout of a top-four finish, and Champions League football, but are certain to finish no lower than fifth in the Premier League, which is a fine achievement after consecutive seasons outside of the top six.

The 2-0 defeat at Newcastle on Monday means Arsenal can’t afford a slip-up in their final game of the campaign, and will also have their eyes and ears on how their rivals, Spurs, get on. Is there one more twist in the tale that will see Mikel Arteta’s Gunners playing Champions League football next season?

We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Arsenal – from their next league game, to the latest football betting odds.

When is the next Arsenal Premier League fixture?

Arsenal face Everton at the Emirates Stadium in their final game of the Premier League season, with the game kicking off at 16:00 on Sunday. Three points are required if the Gunners are to qualify for the Champions League next season, and the home side will be looking for an improved showing after their previous game with Everton in December.

That meeting at Goodison Park saw Everton win 2-1 despite Martin Odegaard giving Arsenal a first-half lead. The Toffees also triumphed the last time they visited the Emirates Stadium in April 2021, although that game was played behind closed doors.

What are the odds that Arsenal win their next game?

Arsenal are 1/2 to finish their season by beating Everton at the Emirates Stadium. Although they’ve lost their last three Premier League games against the Toffees, they haven’t lost four league games in a row against these opponents since 1924.

This will be the third time that Arsenal and Everton have met on the final day of the season, and the Gunners have won both previous occasions, scoring seven times. An Arsenal win on Sunday with four or more goals in the match is 23/10.

Bukayo Saka has played every single Premier League game for Arsenal this season. If he features against Everton, he’ll become the Gunners’ second-youngest player to feature in every game in a single Premier League campaign after Cesc Fabregas in 2006-07. Saka has had an excellent season and is 11/8 to sign off with a goal anytime against Everton.

What is the latest Arsenal injury and transfer news?

Ben White started at Newcastle but team-mate Takehiro Tomiyasu limped off with a muscle injury and may not be risked for the final game of the season. Mikel Arteta was hopeful that the injury was not too serious, so don’t be too surprised to see Tomiyasu out there on Sunday. Kieran Tierney continues to rehab after his recent surgery, but Thomas Partey could make a surprise return.

Who are Arsenal’s key players?

Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has provided much-needed solidity in goal, keeping four clean sheets in seven league games. He’s ably supported by a cast of young British talent, including Kieran Tierney, Ben White, Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe. The permanent signing of Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid in the summer has also been paying dividends this season.

What are the Arsenal odds to finish in the top four of the Premier League?

Arsenal are now 11/1 to finish in the top four of the Premier League, and the equation is simple. A Spurs loss at Norwich coupled with a win for the Gunners on the final day will see them replace their North London rivals in the Champions League spots.

It’s testament to the great young core of players at Arsenal this season that they have two contenders for the PFA Young Player of the Year Award: Bukayo Saka is 11/8 for the honour, with team-mate Emile Smith-Rowe at 33/1.

Who is the manager of Arsenal?

After serving his apprenticeship under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, Mikel Arteta is stepping out on his own at Arsenal. Arteta, a former player at the club, is the latest manager challenged to emulate the success delivered by Arsene Wenger. He already has an FA Cup in his trophy cabinet.

Where is Arsenal’s stadium?

Arsenal play at the 60,000-seater Emirates Stadium in north London, having moved there in 2006 from Highbury. It is the fourth-largest football stadium in England after Wembley Stadium, Old Trafford and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
