Arsenal Preview – Gunners to extend unbeaten run?

Arsenal made a terrible start to their Premier League campaign, losing their opening three to sit rock bottom during the first international break of the season in September. However, since a 5-0 mauling at Manchester City in August, the Gunners have really turned a corner.

Arsenal have gone seven league and cup games unbeaten, winning five and drawing two. In the second round of the Carabao Cup, Mikel Arteta’s men thumped EFL Championship side West Bromwich Albion 6-0 at The Hawthorns. They then beat Wimbledon 3-0 at home.

Our betting prediction:
Arsenal to win to nil

(odds taken 1325 GMT, Monday 25 October)

With no European football to deal with, Arsenal can concentrate on the league and the domestic cup competitions this season. Victory on Tuesday will take them into the last eight of the Carabao Cup, and the home win is priced at just 3/5.

Leeds United Preview – Can the Whites upset the London side?

Leeds United, who finished ninth last term, have made a poor start to this Premier League campaign. The Yorkshire side are currently 17th, just three points above the drop zone. They have won one, drawn four and lost four of nine games so far.

Leeds beat Crewe Alexandra in their first Carabao Cup game of the season in August, with late goals from Jack Harrison (2) and Kalvin Phillips doing the business. They then needed penalties to see off Fulham at Craven Cottage in the previous round.

Leeds have won just three times this term, with two of those coming in the cup. Marcelo Bielsa’s boys are priced at 9/2 to cause an upset in the capital in midweek.


Arsenal vs Leeds United Betting Advice

Back in November 2020, these two teams played out a goalless draw at Elland Road in what was the first Premier League meeting between the pair since 2004. The reverse game at the Emirates ended in a 4-2 win for the Gunners.

They have squared off numerous times in the FA Cup in recent years, but this will be the first EFL Cup meeting between Arsenal and Leeds since January 1980.


Key Facts – Arsenal vs Leeds United Betting Tip

  • Arsenal are on a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions
  • Leeds have not beaten the Gunners since 2003
  • United have picked up just two wins in normal time this season


Arsenal have been in red-hot form since that heavy loss at the Etihad in August. They made light work of West Brom and Wimbledon in the earlier rounds, and Arteta’s troops should win this one in front of their home supporters. You can get 7/5 for the hosts to be winning at half time and full time.

Alexandre Lacazette has scored in both rounds of the cup this season. The Frenchman was also on target in a 2-2 league draw with Crystal Palace recently. Lacazette is available at 4/1 to score first in this one.
