Lampard should certainly welcome a few more faces to Merseyside as Everton look to avoid being dragged into another demoralizing relegation battle, but a clash with Arsenal hardly represents the easiest pre-season start for the Toffees.

We say: Arsenal 3-1 Everton

Arsenal’s young attacking stars have already shown their affinity for finding the back of the net in pre-season, and their recent friendly exploits will serve them well against the Toffees and their lack of preparation.

It shouldn’t take long for Lampard’s familiar-looking side to clash again, but a full-strength Arsenal XI should have too much for Everton here.
