Premier League • Day 18
Everton – Arsenal
Both sides are without a manager and could change by the weekend. Everton are in 16th place and Arsenal who are in tenth but only four points above the home side. Since the sacking of Marco Silva, Everton have earned four points from games against Chelsea and Manchester United and climbed out of the bottom three. They are only three points above the relegation zone and could have Carlo Ancelotti in charge by the time this game takes place.
Arsenal are tenth in the table and seven points behind the final Champions League place and same number of points above the relegation zone. They might also have a new manager by the weekend with Mikel Arteta lined up for the job. The Gunners are struggling in defense and last weekend saw them lose 3-0 to Manchester City. The Gunners have only won one of their last seven league games .

Crystal Palace have gone unbeaten in their last four matches but have managed just two wins in their last nine matches. They have five wins in their last 15 matches and their last 10 matches have produced just three clean sheets. Newcastle have four wins, while Crystal Palace have two wins in the 10.
