If Arsenal (7-13-6; 34 points) or Everton (10-6-10; 36 points) are going to take advantage of Manchester City’s looming UEFA Champions League ban, they’ll have to start Sunday.
The Gunners and Toffees square off at the Emirates then, and new managers Mikel Arteta and Carlo Ancelotti are unbeaten in their last five matches. They’re six and four points back, respectively, of fifth-place Tottenham Hotspur thanks to Spurs’ loss to Chelsea on Saturday, and the 11 remaining matches after Sunday represent more than enough time to make up that ground.
Fifth place, should City remain banned, will be enough to qualify for Europe’s top competition next season. Sunday’s game in North London could be a defining result in that race.
Here’s how to watch Sunday’s Arsenal-Everton match online and on TV.
