Man City v Arsenal Betting Odds, Preview and Predictions

Emirates Stadium

Man City V Arsenal
The reigning league champions go into this match level on points with Arsenal and looking for a restoration of confidence after suffering in Madrid during the week. City lost in the Champions League at Real Madrid, while Arsenal came away from Montpellier with a win. With clean sheets hard to come by for Manchester City, can the Gunners, who look to be gathering momentum all the time, snap City’s unbeaten run at home in the league?

Man City v Arsenal Betting Odds at Online Bookmaker Paddy Power
Man City 3/4, Draw 13/5, Arsenal 15/4

A great looking match but one which surprised a little last season. They met three times last season and all of the matches were won by a 1-0 scoreline. Two wins went to City and one to Arsenal. Both sides won their respective home matches in the Premier League and there has only been six goals in the last six meetings between these two. So it usually a match in which defences have largely come out on top. Only Arsenal have conceded fewer shots on target this season than Man City in the Premier League, but the difference between the two sides is that City have been leaking goals whereas Arsenal have the best defensive record so far. City are on a 31 match unbeaten streak at home and that has to seriously be looked at. They haven’t played particularly well this season, but they haven’t been punished for their lapses. Arsenal have the potential to do so at the moment and they will test the unsettled City back line. The flow of things could just be in Arsenal’s favour and something of an upset could be on the cards. An Arsenal Correct Score 1-0 bet for a price of 7/1 with online bookmaker Paddy Power who will refund lost stakes on the market with their Money Back Special promotion for the match (see below).

Stat Attack:
City are without a clean sheet in their last seven fixtures
Arsenal have allowed the fewest amount of shots on target in the EPL
The Gunners have lost one of their last ten league matches on the road
City have not lost in their last 31 Premier League home matches

Head to Head:
All three games ended in a 1-0 scoreline between these two last season. Three of the last four meetings in Manchester between these two have ended in wins for City. Overall in the head to head, Arsenal have racked up 93 wins against City’s 47 in all competitions. That is quite a wide gap there. A second half goal from David Silva was enough to settle things at the Etihad Stadium last season, but the Gunners dominated possession in the game. Another reason to suggest that Arsenal may nick this one.

There are great refunds on offer from online bookmaker Paddy Power who are running a great Money Back Special. If the game ends in a draw, then the popular bookie will refund any losing Correct Score, First Goalscorer, Correct Score or Scorecast single bets placed on the match.

Man City v Arsenal Betting Preview:
How much will the defeat against Real Madrid have taken out of the short term confidence of Manchester City. They blew a lead twice in the game and it showed a problem they have had this season. City have been going well enough getting forward, that is really never going to be an issue for them. But the solid defence hasn’t shown up properly this season and that could be down to Roberto Mancini not starting the same back line in any successive games yet this season. They need to settle down quickly back there as the lapses they have suffered have not really cost them so far, but if it continues, then they will get punished. Especially against confident teams like Arsenal. City are without a clean sheet in their last seven matches in all competitions now. That Spanish defeat will have been draining for them mentally, but they have that tremendously long home record to bank on. They have touches of superb quality in Tevez and Aguero, match winners which often get them out of trouble. This is a match where they could just be a little vulnerable, that or the Madrid defeat will have woken them up and they will switch on.

Arsenal have just grown in confidence and look a very good side. Lukas Podolski has stepped up nicely to get on the score sheet, aided by Gervinho who is looking like has a new lease of life. Olivier Giroud still looks as if he is a man under pressure as he waits for his first goal though. Arsenal’s defence has been very good, although there were mistakes against Montpellier which should have been punished. Arsenal have conceded just one goal and while they have burst into life going forward, they haven’t sacrificed the discipline at the back. That is what makes them a dangerous side. Arsene Wenger’s men are on a nine match unbeaten run in all competitions and Santi Cazorla could be the one to watch as he created the most chances from open play in the Premier League this season. If the Gunners defence stays tight, Cazorla could just be the one to open up City at the back.


Liverpool v Arsenal Betting Odds, Preview and Prediction

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal)

Liverpool V Arsenal
Both of these giants are still looking to record their first wins of the season, so will something break here, or will the two take the share of the spoils? Both are looking to really kick start their season and have taken some disappointing results already this team. Liverpool have already came through one of the stiffest challenges in holding Man City to a draw, so will that give them the edge at Anfield on Sunday?

Liverpool v Arsenal Betting Odds at online bookmaker Paddy Power:
Liverpool Evens, Draw 12/5, Arsenal 11/4

The Gunners haven’t found the back of the net yet this season, while Liverpool did put in an improved performance against Manchester City last weekend. So the Reds may just have the edge in this one and why odds are leaning towards the home side. However, it will require them overturning some poor history against Arsenal. Six of the last ten matches between these two have ended in draws and it looks as if that is going to be a sound option against this time. However, there could be value in backing Arsenal in an +0.25 Asian Handicap for a price of 23/20 at online bookmaker Bet365 because the Gunners have good form against the Reds.

Stat Attack:

Arsenal have allowed the fewest amount of shots on goal in the EPL so far
The Gunners have drawn five of their last six Premier League matches
Liverpool have won just one of the last ten against Arsenal
Liverpool have just one home win in the last six in the EPL

Head to Head:
Liverpool have only won one of the last ten matches against Arsenal, drawing six and losing the other three. So not a great run of form against the Gunners. During the run of the last seven meetings between these two, there have been seven goals scored after the 90 minutes of regulation time. So expect some late drama as that has happened quite a bit here. In the last four meetings at Anfield, there have been two draws and two defeats for Liverpool.

Online bookmaker promotion:
Online bookmaker Paddy Power have a great money back special running for your Liverpool v Arsenal betting on Sunday. Liverpool may need a big game from captain Steven Gerrard, and if Gerrard scores at Anytime in the match, then online bookmaker Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer/Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast single bets placed on the match. Great coverage from the bookie, who also offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account with them.

Liverpool v Arsenal Betting Preview:
After taking a hammering against West Brom on the opening day of the season and having Daniel Agger sent off, Liverpool responded quite well with a much more composed performance against Man City. The Reds were a little unlucky not to come away from Anfield with a win on that occasion, as a defensive error from Martin Skrtel gifted City a point. However, the Reds stuttered again on Thursday night, as only a late strike by Luis Suarez meant that they avoided home defeat against Hearts in the Europa League. Just as West Brom had done against Liverpool, Hearts worked very hard through the middle of the park and didn’t let Liverpool get into too much a rhythm. But what may work in Liverpool’s favour is that they will be up against a passing side who won’t harass them so much when they are on the ball. Joe Allen looks an important part of the Liverpool side, when the former Swansea man is dictating things in the middle of the park, Liverpool look good. If he is not on the ball, then Liverpool lack. Liverpool’s form at Anfield isn’t great though, winning just one of their last six games at home and if they happen to suffer defeat on Sunday, then it will be their poorest start since the 1962-63 season.

Arsenal have recorded back to back 0-0 draws to kick the season off, not the confident start that Arsene Wenger will have wanted in the post Robin van Persie era. In their opening fixture of the season, Arsenal struggled to carve out any decent chances against Sunderland, and were frustrated last weekend against Stoke as well. But Arsenal did look much better going forward after Wenger had changed things up, they looked to be a bit more cohesive and it doesn’t look as if too much more is needed before the new forward line with Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud start knocking in the goals. Some have questioned Arsenal’s selling this summer, with Alex Song also departing there is a transition period here for the Gunners. But there are positives to take, even though Arsenal have now drawn five of their last six Premier League matches. Defensively, the Gunners have looked far more sound than they have done for a long time and have allowed the fewest amount of shot on their goal out of all Premier League teams this season. If the forwards can just start scoring without sacrificing defence, Arsenal should have a very good balance to them.


Arsenal v Sunderland Betting Odds, Tips and Preview

Premier League Betting

Arsenal V Sunderland
With the Gunners resigned to having to sell their star striker Robin van Persie to their Premier League rivals Manchester United, will the Black Cats be able to capitalise on the Arsenal unrest and take an opening day win?

Arsenal v Sunderland Betting Odds at online bookmaker Paddy Power:
Arsenal 2/5, Draw 7/2, Sunderland 15/2

Verdict: After limping towards the end of last season in the Premier League, Sunderland boss Martin O’Neill has been a little unhappy that he hasn’t been able to be active in the transfer market. They snapped up Louis Saha on a deal to help out up front, but is that enough to solve the Black Cats’ lack of goalscoring talent which was evident last year? Arsenal will go into the season without Robin van Persie and how they cope without him is going to be the main factor of their season. Regardless, the Gunners go as short odds and with the squad proving that they are good enough with RVP, the Gunners still look decent for a +1.5 Asian Handicap at 23/20 with online bookmaker Paddy Power.

Stat Attack:

  • The Gunners have lost just one of their last 17 home matches in the league against Sunderland
  • Martin O’Neill has won just once in 16 EPL meetings against Arsene Wenger
  • Sunderland are carrying over a winless streak of seven away matches
  • Arsenal were the league’s highest goalscorers in the first fifteen minutes of matches

Head To Head:
There have been seventy meetings between the two sides at Arsenal and the Gunners have a big supremacy in the fixture. The Gunners have won 54% of the meetings at home against the Black Cats and recorded a win in the fixture last season. That was Robin van Persie netting a brace in a 2-1 win. Sunderland will be happy RVP won’t be there on Saturday, as the Dutchman has netted five in four home games against them. Despite two league defeats, Sunderland did record a home win over Arsenal in the FA Cup last season. Which means that Arsenal have won just two of the last five matches against Sunderland in all competitions. At home, Arsenal haven’t lost to Sunderland since a meeting in the 2002/03 League Cup.

Online bookmaker promotion:
If there is a red card in Arsenal v Sunderland betting (or in any Premier League match this weekend) then Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast bets placed on the match. This provides tremendous coverage on your match betting for the opening weekend of the Premier League. Online bookmaker Paddy Power offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account with them. The bookie will match the value of your first stake on a new account with a free bet, and also provide great coverage through their live in play betting portal.

Arsenal v Sunderland Betting Preview:
Life without Robin van Persie, that is what Arsenal are looking at. With the Dutch striker refusing to sign an extension to his contract, Arsene Wenger admitted that he had no choice but to sell their best player. Van Persie netted 30 of Arsenal’s 70 league goals last season and even with his haul they finished nineteen points off the top. So how are they going to close the gap this season? They have drafted in Olivier Giroud and they have the likes of Gervinho and Chamakh around. They also picked up Germany’s Lukas Podolski to help weigh in. But is that going to be enough to fill the void that Van Persie has left behind? Maybe, maybe someone will step up and fill their boots. Arsenal do have a good crop of young players to call on in Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere in particular. The likes of Mikel Arteta and Alex Song are going to be crucial in holding things together.

Sunderland really haven’t taken on much of a new identity since last season. It all started well for Martin O’Neill when he took over, but the same old problems still seem to be there, a lack of expansive play and goalscoring ability. The Black Cats have turned to Louis Saha for goals. They are solid enough through the middle and at the back, but they really have to find a new dimension in pushing forward this season if they are going to be looking for a top half of the table finish. The Black Cats finished the season without a win in their last eight matches. A draw looks as if it will be just about the best that they could pick up on this opening day. If their pre-season form is anything to go by, four defeats and a draw (scoring just one goal in those matches) it could be a long season ahead for O’Neill and Sunderland.




Arsenal v Chelsea Betting Odds, Preview and Money Back Special

Frank Lampard (Chelsea)

Little doubt about the big game in the Premier League on the weekend, as Saturday we have a look at Arsenal v Chelsea betting, which will have a big say in the final places in the top four. Chelsea need the win much more desperately than Arsenal, and defeat at the Emirates for Roberto Di Matteo’s men, could really scupper their chances of booking a Champions League place for next season. Online bookmaker Paddy Power have a great Money Back Special running for Arsenal v Chelsea betting. There is, without doubt a wealth of forward talent on the pitch, from Robin van Persie to Didier Drogba. So there is the potential for goals in this crucial top four battle. The two sides produced an eight goal thriller earlier in the season at Stamford Bridge, with Arsenal winning 5-3.

If there are four or more goals scored in Arsenal v Chelsea betting, then Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast single bets placed on the match. This provides some great coverage on your football betting, thanks to Paddy Power. It means that insurance can be taken on the First Goalscorer market for example, where Van Persie is 4/1 favourite with Didier Drogba at 13/2. In the Correct Score market, a 1-1 draw is trading as the favourite option at 11/2 with the popular bookie. These bets are more will be covered by the Money Back Special.

Online bookmaker Paddy Power offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account. The bookie will match the value of your first stake on a new account with a free bet, up to the maximum value of £50.

Arsenal v Chelsea Betting Odds
Arsenal to win: 21/20 at Paddy Power
Draw: 27/10 at Bet Victor
Chelsea to win: 11/4 at Bet365 

The Gunners look the part for a third place finish in the league, and they take a seven point lead over 6th placed Chelsea into this fixture. So the Gunners do have a bit of breathing space for a top four finish, and a win here could put them well in control. The Gunners have earned their position well, with a very strong run of form since the start of February, and they have won nine of the last eleven matches. Although they have lost two of their last four, including their last outing at home against Wigan Athletic, they are still in pretty strong shape. That home defeat against Wigan, was only their third home defeat of the season, and they have a W12 D2 L3 record for the season. They have the unquestionable prowess of Robin van Persie up front, and he has helped them score in all but one of their home games this season. The Gunners average over two goals per game at home, and their defence, by and large has been very solid, keeping four clean sheets in their last six matches. Can they get the win which will likely finish off their London rivals’ chance of a top four finish? Arsenal have held a pretty home strong record against the Blues, losing just three of the last nineteen matches. The Gunners have lost Mikel Arteta for the rest of the season through injury.

Chelsea must quickly come down from the euphoria of beating Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday night. The Blues scraped a 1-0 win, thanks largely to a massive defensive effort and huge slices of luck. The Blues suffered a heavy 5-3 at Stamford Bridge against Arsenal earlier in the season, and really need to reverse that on Saturday. Chelsea have still lost only one match since Roberto Di Matteo took over from Andre Villas Boas, but again, luck has played a huge factor in their progress. They were lucky to beat Wigan, they were lucky to be awarded a goal that never was in the FA Cup semi final versus Spurs, they were luckily saved by the woodwork on a couple of occasions against Barcelona, and the list can go on. But if luck is on your side, then you have to roll with it. Maybe all this luck will translate into success for Chelsea on all fronts. Chelsea’s away form is nothing to write home about still, as they have only won one of their last seven matches on the road. So they will go as underdogs here, especially based on Arsenal’s good home form. But this is another crucial match for Chelsea, and it is awkwardly sandwiched in between the two Champions League semi final matches. The Blues expended a lot of energy in shutting Barcelona out, so they will probably need to shuffle their pack and Fernando Torres could spell Didier Drogba ahead of the trip to Spain, but Drogba has a great goal scoring record against the Gunners.


Arsenal v Wigan Betting Odds, Preview and Money Back Special – 16.04.12

Robin Van Persie (Arsenal)

Arsenal v Wigan betting for Monday night’s Premier League match has some coverage being offered on it by online bookmaker Paddy Power. Arsenal look to have third place in the league firmly in their grasp and really just have to play the season out, while Wigan are still struggling to remain in England’s top flight for next season. Robin van Persie found his way back on to the score-sheet again against Wolves over the Easter weekend, his first goal in five matches. So, with Van the Man netting his 27th league goal of the season, he naturally is the main focal point of Arsenal betting in the goal scorer markets. Van Persie rounded off a 4-0 win over Wigan earlier in the season.

If Robin van Persie scores the last goal of the game against Wigan on Monday night, online bookmaker Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Score-cast single bets placed on the match. So great coverage being offered by the bookie for your football betting, and it means that you can look at the First Goalscorer market for example, where Van Persie himself is 2/1 favourite to open the scoring. The Gunners trumped Wigan 4-0 earlier in the season, and a reasonable 2-0 Correct Score bet on Arsenal fetches 11/2 with Paddy Power.

So great coverage on your sub markets for Arsenal v Wigan betting with Paddy Power. The highly popular online bookmaker welcomes new punters with a matched initial stake welcome bonus. The bookie will match the value of your first stake on a new account with a free bet, giving you some great free betting cash to get started with!

Arsenal v Wigan Betting Odds
Arsenal 2/7, Draw 9/2, Wigan 9/1 at Paddy Power

Arsenal go into the weekend’s round of matches with a five point lead over Spurs in the race for third spot. It has been a tremendous turnaround in form from Arsenal from the first half of the season, and with seven wins in their last eight matches, a lot of credit is due to Arsene Wenger. Sure, they have the massive asset of Robin van Persie, and his goals have carried the team, but the team behind him has gotten stronger and stronger over the course of the season. The Gunners have rattled off five wins from their last five home matches in the league, and have kept clean sheets in their two at the Emirates. Better reading than that, the Gunners have kept four clean sheets in their live five Premier League matches home and away. So they are in great form, and with twelve wins, two draws and two defeats at home this season, they are a strong bet. Arsenal have averaged just over two goals per game at home, and their mean defence is only conceding at a rate of 0.75 per game. Arsenal have only failed to score in one home game this season. So, unbeaten in five at home, their last home game producing a win over Manchester City, can Arsenal seal the deal on third spot?

Wigan did their chances of surviving a world of good, when they turned in a wonderful home performance to beat leaders Manchester United last week. Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has fervently stuck to his football philosophy, and Wigan’s good passing game has finally started to reap the rewards it deserves. The Latics were unlucky to come away from Stamford Bridge without a point in the match prior to the Man Utd fixture, but that defeat against Chelsea remains their only loss in the last six matches. So Wigan are actually in pretty good form, having lost only two of the last ten. They are fighting for their lives, but they are doing it in style. It has been a tough run in for Wigan, but they are hanging in there, and their form may just get them over the line. But just because they turn up and surprise a very tepid Manchester United, doesn’t mean that they are going to go to the Emirates and grab another three points. They will be heavy underdogs for the match, even though their away form has been decent, with just one loss in their last four away matches, a win away at Anfield coming in that run. Wigan have only won four matches away from home this season, and while another would be timely, they only average a goal per game away from home and have only kept one clean sheet all season on their travels. They are the best footballing side of the relegation candidates, and a point away at Arsenal at this stage would be momentous


Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Odds and Preview – 08.04.12

Arsenal - Theo Walcott

Arsenal v Manchester City betting could prove to be a big Premier League title decider on Sunday, in a negative way for the visitors. City already are five points behind Manchester United heading into the weekend, and boss Roberto Mancini has already conceded this his side won’t be winning the title if they lose at the Emirates. So it is down to the wire now for Man City, but they, and Arsenal have a tremendous amount of goalscoring potential in their sides, and that is why it will be worth heading to Boylesports to take some coverage on your Arsenal v Manchester City First Goalscorer betting. Back a First Goalscorer in the match at Boylesports, and if your bet loses, but your selection scores the second goal of the game, then Boylesports will refund your lost stake on the market. A great bit of insurance to take as it is available, and it should be extra valuable when backing the main protagonists in this match.

In the Arsenal v Manchester City First Goalscorer market, Robin van Persie is 4/1 favourite, with City’s Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotellli at 6/1. So there is good value around, all backed up with the insurance from the Boylesports promotion. This same promotion also applies to Sunday’s other big Premier League match of Man Utd v QPR.

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Odds
Arsenal: 13/8 at Stan James
Draw: 5/2 at Bet Victor
Manchester City: 9/5 at Bet365

Arsenal have the chance to do their old rivals Manchester United a huge favour on Sunday. Arsene Wenger is able to select from a fully fit squad, and they of course have their own important agenda, of trying to finish third in the table. So this is the big highlight match of the weekend, and a match which could have huge reverberations in settling the top four. Arsenal looked a long way from ever making the top four at the end of January, but a blistering run of seven consecutive wins fired them upwards rapidly, helped along by the failings of Spurs and Chelsea, it has to be said. Still, the Gunners have been going along at a fair old pace, that was until they ran into QPR last weekend at Loftus Road. The Gunners had their win streak brutally snapped by a 2-1 defeat, which has left them level on points with fourth placed Spurs. So this is a massive match for the Gunners, but naturally it pales into comparison of the importance it has for the visitors. Wenger will have a bit of revenge in mind, because twice he has faced City this season and both occasions it ended in a 1-0 loss for the Gunners (once in the league and once in the Carling Cup).

There are some very interesting stats to look at for Arsenal v Manchester City betting. The Citizens haven’t won at Arsenal for 26 matches, yet the Gunners have only managed to score in one of the last six meetings against the Northerners. Since a 2-1 reverse at home against Manchester United, Arsenal have won their last four home games straight, scoring seventeen goals in those four matches and conceding just four. So the Gunners are going to be a formidable opponent for Manchester City and their title hopes. In total, the Gunners have only lost two home games all season, winning eleven of their fifteen fixtures there. While there were questions over the rigidity of the Arsenal defence, the Gunners concede on average less than a goal per game at home. Going forward, they average over two goals per game, and surely Robin van Persie is due a goal. The flying Dutchman has not netted in three matches now.

So what can City produce under pressure? They haven’t been able to cope with the pressure of being expected to win the league title so far, so can they produce a stirring finish? Well, their away record against Arsenal isn’t good, but at least they will be boosted by the return of Sergio Aguero who has missed the last two matches. City have suffered in those last two matches, scraping an away draw at Stoke, and the needing to come back from a 3-1 deficit against Sunderland at home last week. For the first time this season, City dropped points at home in that 3-3 draw, and it left the Citizens with a bit of a resigned air. Dropping four points in two games at this stage of the season, is something you won’t see United doing. Forget all the verbal banter that has been dished out, City have to perform on the pitch and right now, a repeat of their 1-0 league success over the Gunners earlier in the season would suffice. But City have conceded in each of their last four matches, and they have just one away win in their last four, losing two of those. There are not going to be any more chances should they lose this one.

Can Everton rediscover their top form? The Toffees had gone seven matches unbeaten in the Premier League until they ran into Liverpool recently, and suffered a 3-0 loss at Anfield. That was uncharacteristically slack of Everton to concede that may, because they really don’t give that much away. Neither do they score too many either and that is the basis of Everton’s season. Keep everything tight and find a match winner from somewhere They have been doing that, and doing that well, and have racked an extremely good home sequence of form. They have won their last three league matches at Goodison Park, beating Manchester City, Chelsea and then Tottenham, so they are in great shape. Their downfall in this match could be fitness, as they were embroiled in a tough FA Cup tie against Sunderland on the weekend, which ended in a draw, whereas Arsenal got a weekend off. While Everton are likely to finish a comfortable mid-table position, they could have one eye more on the possibility of an FA Cup semi final at this point.

But boss David Moyes will be looking for three points, and, as is Everton’s wont, if it comes, it will probably be by a tight one goal margin (7/2 at Bet365). Only once in the last fourteen league games have Everton scored more than one goal in a match, so is Arsenal just get one in the back of the net, the Toffees could be struggling. But the Everton defence has been good at home, because they haven’t conceded in their last three home games, and on average conceding under one goal per game at home. They have only conceded thirteen home goals this season, but they have only scored fifteen, and that is the measure of Everton.

The Gunners have a lot more to play for than their hosts in Everton v Arsenal betting. Arsenal go into this game in fourth place, but they can leapfrog North London rivals Spurs with a win on Wednesday night. The Gunners looked out of the race for a third place finish, but Tottenham’s slump and the Gunner’s impressive run of five straight wins have closed the gap to one point. There is also more at stake behind them as well, because Chelsea are just three points back from them. But the Gunners are in great form at the moment, and although they have rode their luck recently, scoring last minute winners in their last two outings, they have also played some strong football. They look good, dangerous and fluent going forward, spearheaded by Robin van Persie of course (3/1 First Goalscorer at SkyBet).

The Gunners though are conceding goals, and they have had to come from behind in their last four matches to take three points. So they do give up goals, at a not so good rate of 1.93 per away match this season, but they could get away with it, with Everton being so shy on the scoring front. If it comes down to simply fire-power, Arsenal should win this, as they are scoring on average 1.86 goals per away game. But Everton, as proven so often, time and time again can shut up shop and sneak winners. The Gunners did earn themselves a 1-0 win over the Toffees earlier in the season, and Everton have only won one of their last six home matches against Arsenal. So Arsenal are favourites to keep their strong momentum going, but it will not be an easy match, and 1 Goal Winning Margin for the Gunners is priced at 3/1 with Bet365.

Arsenal v Spurs Betting Odds
Arsenal to win: 8/5 at Boylesports
Draw: 12/5 at Bet365
Spurs to win: 19/10 at Stan James

The two sides produced three goals when they met earlier in the season at White Hart Lane, with Spurs taking a 2-1 victory and a big three points. It is Tottenham who are holding on to third place at the moment in the Premier League, a massive ten points ahead of fourth placed rivals Arsenal. Spurs have lost a bit of ground in the race for the Premier League title, sitting seven points back of leaders Manchester City, but Harry Redknapp’s men continue to prove what a good side they are, with defeats few and far between in the league. Spurs have lost just four matches in the Premier League this season, only one in their last eleven, which makes for some pretty impressive reading. Three of their four losses though this season have been on the road, but with a 50% win success on the road this season, the stats still make pretty good reading for Tottenham. They are the stronger of the two North London sides at the moment, and clearly aren’t far from being genuine title contenders. Spurs do play some very tidy and neat football, and they are one of the most exciting teams going forward with width, and one of the big added dimensions of their game this season has been the addition of the massive presence of Emmanuel Adebayor up front, who has the strength and quality to really trouble the jittery Gunners back line in Arsenal v Tottenham betting. Adebayor of course enjoyed great times with Arsenal, but now in a Spurs shirt he is proving to be a vital addition to the Spurs squad. But Spurs just have so many good attacking options, with the creativity of Gareth Bale and Rafael van der Vaart just for starters. So Spurs will head across the capital and start the match as favourites to pick up three points. A draw wouldn’t be a bad result away from home and in terms of keeping their dominance over Arsenal at ten points. However, Spurs have bigger ambitions and will want to come away with all three points in their outside title quest.

Arsenal have not exactly been in the sharpest of form of late, crashing out of the FA Cup against Sunderland and then suffering the 4-0 demolition at the hands of AC Milan in the Champions League. Arsenal’s defence has looked shakier and shakier over the past couple of weeks, and although they have won their last two Premier League outing, those are the only two out of the last six league matches which they have managed. The Gunners suffered three straight losses before breaking out of their slump, but they have fallen backwards again, and will finish the season empty handed and only a Champions League place next season to play for. The race for fourth in the Premier League is tight one, with just one point separating themselves, Chelsea and Newcastle, so Arsenal v Tottenham betting is of huge importance here. The Gunners can’t afford to drop more points in the hunt for a top four finish, while a win over their fierce rivals will certainly do their confidence a whole world of good. Do Arsenal have the ability to grind things out when the going is getting tough? Do they have the ability to win ugly, something which Tottenham have learned to do quite well this season? While Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has had the support of the chairman that he will be saying there, he is a man under pressure after failing again to bring silverware to the club. Could Arsene Wenger’s future all depend on Spurs? Arsenal have only managed one win against the top four sides this season, losing twice to Manchester United, and once each against Liverpool, Man City and Spurs. The only success the Gunners have had against any of the other big teams was a win at Stamford Bridge. Still, Arsenal have racked up 8 wins at home and have suffered two defeats there. Do they have the confidence in their game and at the back to take anything from Arsenal v Tottenham betting?

EPL Match Preview: This is usually one of the best fixtures on the calendar year, Arsenal v Manchester United betting. There is pretty much some controversy, talking points and high quality action when Arsene Wenger and Alex Ferguson comes together. It is always a hotly contested affair, and it could be a great re-union for Paul Scholes, who has just come out of retirement and Arsenal’s Thierry Henry who has joined his old club on loan until the end of the season. United go into Sunday’s fixture trailing their big spending rivals Manchester City by three points and with Tottenham breathing right down their neck just two points back, United have to keep up the pressure. Arsenal’s revival looked to be going well until the last couple of fixtures where they have dropped six points. That has left them trying to play catch up in fifth place in the table, four points behind fourth placed Chelsea. So the points at stake are going to be massive for both of these clubs in what is really going to be a superb Sunday of action in Premier League betting. Can the Gunners get one over on their old rivals and dent United’s title hopes? Or can the Red Devils rediscover that winning consistency.

Arsenal Form: Sadly Thierry Henry could miss out on the big clash with Manchester United. The striker is struggling with a calf strain and he may have to miss the showcase fixture at The Emirates. The Gunners have been spluttering a little bit of late, going into the home match against Manchester united on the back of two away defeats. It hasn’t been a great start to the new year for Arsene Wenger, as he has seen his side crash away at Fulham and then at Swansea City. Still, they can look at their home form and take a lot of heart as they have suffered only one defeat there, picking up seven wins and two draws. That is a 70% win record at home in the Premier League this season for Arsene Wenger’s men and they are on a run on nine matches at the Emirates with no defeat. In the raising of their form since their poor start to the season, Arsenal have scored in each of their last nine home games racking up 16 home goals this season. That’s not a particularly hot tally for a home side of their calibre to be honest, but Arsenal’s defence at home has been marvellous, conceding just 6 goals at the Emirates. All this adds up to Arsenal scoring 1.6 on average per home game and conceding on average just 0.6 per game. So that is pretty strong stats for backing Arsenal to get something out of this game. Arsenal have kept clean sheets in half of their home fixtures this season, and at the Emirates is where the bulk of their points have come from. Arsenal have been at their sharp shooting best in the second half of matches, with 58% of their league goals coming after the break. The second half though is where they have conceded most of their goals as well, so we can expect second half fireworks. The Gunners are already missing Mikel Arteta because of injury and influential defender Thomas Vermaelen is also struggling to be fit for the match. Arsenal need to shake off their inconsistency again and get back to what they were doing so well on their eight match unbeaten streak. Robin van Persie will be the big danger man again, and the pressure will be on him if Thierry Henry can’t make it.

Manchester United Form: Sir Alex Ferguson will have been a bit dismayed as his side’s recent form They really dropped the ball at home against Blackburn and then were a total shambles at the back against Newcastle. They are missing Nemanja Vidic in the heart of the defence, because as Newcastle proved, if you get at the United back line with pace then you are going to get rewarded. United did hit back with a 3-0 home win over Bolton though last weekend, but the fits and starts of scoring form from Wayne Rooney continues as he hasn’t hit the back of the net in the league for four matches now. With Javier Hernandez not chipping in either, Dimitar Berbatov has suddenly come back into the fore for the Red Devils. United, being United, have a decent away record in the league this year, running up seven wins, two draws and one defeat. That is a 70% strike rate away from home, exactly the same as Arsenal’s home form, so it all points to a fascinating meeting again. Although they lost their last away match, they are six away games without picking up a draw now and they are scoring at a fair old click away from Old Trafford. United have hit 19 away goals at a rate of 1.90 per game, and the defence has been much better away from home that it has at Old Trafford this season, conceding only six at a rate of 0.60 goals per match. The stats of United’s away form and Arsenal home is remarkably similar. United have bagged the most amount of goals in the final fifteen minutes of matches, and they have opened the scoring in 81% of their matches this season, which is a great stat to pay attention to. Wayne Rooney is still the key man for them, having hit 13 league goals, and six of them away from home. Their current form does read two losses and a win in their last three matches, and this is a big period for the Red Devils in the league and the FA Cup with some big fixtures coming up. United do get back Chris Smalling and Phil Jones into their defence as options for the trip to the Emirates.

Head to Head: Arsenal actually have a pretty strong head to head ascendancy in this fixture, winning 57% of their home matches against United. United have managed just 26 wins at Arsenal out of 100 attempts going into this match. The Gunners actually average just over two goals per game in this fixtures, while United are at just averaging 1.3 per game at Arsenal. In last year’s corresponding fixture, Arsenal grabbed a 1-0 victory after suffering two consecutive home defeats against Manchester United. In the overall head to head between these two, it is the Red Devils who are head 89 wins to 78 for Arsenal, with 46 drawn matches in total between them. The last draw between them was a 0-0 at Old Trafford back in May 2009.


Swansea v Arsenal Betting Odds, Tips and Preview – 15.01.12

Premier League Betting

The return of Thierry Henry to Arsenal was the big talking point ahead of their FA Cup fixture against Leeds last weekend. It was the talismanic Frenchman who stood up and scored the winning goal of the third round tie, reigniting his passion for the club. That was a big emotional moment for Henry on his return to North London and it will be interesting to see what the Gunners legend can now produce in the Premier League. Henry is only back on loan while the MLS season is closed down and Henry will at least give Arsene Wenger some alternative attacking options up front, as they have been lacking in that area, with no-one offering support to Robin van Persie. Will boss Arsene Wenger go for a dual pronged attack of Henry and Van Persie against Swansea? Arsenal need to muster up a response to their last Premier League outing which was also on the road, as they went down 2-1 at Fulham on January 2nd. The goals have started drying up just a little bit for the Gunners, so the arrival of Henry may give them an extra spark. Arsenal have only scored more than one goal in just one of their last six Premier League matches. A trip to face Swansea is not going to be an easy one, and Arsenal haven’t secured a great record on the road this season. The Gunners have landed just four wins and a draw out of their ten away fixtures this season, and they have conceded a goal in each of their last three games away from the Emirates. Their have conceded a tremendous amount of goals on their travels this season, 22 in total which is an average of 2.20 per game. What has seen them through has been the twenty away goals they have scored, so there is potential for a pretty tight game at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday. The Gunners have only managed just two clean sheets out of ten on the road, and 80% of their away games have, not surprisingly ended over 2.5 goals. The Gunners need the input of Robin van Persie and there is the feeling that a victory will probably just come by a one goal margin. With Arsenal suffering two defeats out of their last three away fixtures, this match is by no means a foregone conclusion. They are still in a scrap for fourth place at the moment, and obviously won’t want to lose any more ground to the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool who are sandwiching them.

Swansea are ticking along a nice enough pace, which should see them maintain their Premier League status if they keep up their form. The Swans are now undefeated in their last three matches in the league and go into Swansea v Arsenal betting on the back of a well earned three points away at Aston Villa at the start of the year. It is Swansea’s home record which is still making impressive reading in the league, as they have suffered just one defeat at the Liberty Stadium this season. For Premier League new boys, that is a pretty great stat to look at for the Welsh club’s fans. Swansea have won four, drawn five and lost just that one game at home, and the only side to beat them on their home turf has been Manchester United, who scraped a 1-0 win there. There have been just four goals conceded by Swansea at home, as they are proving to be a pretty tough team to break down, and conceding at just 0.4 goals per game, should give them hope of taking another important point off one of the top teams in the Premier League, just as they did against Spurs during the festive period. The Swans have only netted twelve times themselves in their ten home games at just over 1 goal per game, but with 60% of their home matches ending in clean sheets for them, they will make life difficult for the Gunners. Eighty percent of Swansea’s home games have ended Under 2.5 goals this season, and with their very attractive style of football they will be confident of making use of the fortress Liberty Stadium. There hasn’t been many too goals flowing for the Swans of late, and boss Brendan Rodgers will be looking for his defence to stand tall again. But having failed to score in five of their last ten matches, they will be looking to top scorer Danny Graham to overshadow the Premier League return of Thierry Henry.
