Arsenal Prediction – Can Arsenal gain back-to-back wins?

Arsenal finally ended their winless drought last time out in the Premier League when they registered a 2-0 home win against Manchester United and gave new manager, Mikel Arteta, his first win as manager with The Gunners.

However, Arsenal had previously managed just 1 win out of 15 matches played beforehand in all competitions which was a rare 3-1 win away from home against West Ham, and Arteta’s new reign at the north London club has produced mixed results to date.

A 1-1 draw with third from bottom club, Bournemouth, was followed by a 2-1 defeat at home to Chelsea before bouncing back with the aforementioned 2-0 win over Manchester United, but Arteta is expected to shuffle his pack for this upcoming FA Cup clash against Championship outfit, Leeds United.

With just 1 win out of their last 8 matches at home in all competitions, backing an Arsenal win may be a risky ploy but 6 of Arsenal’s last 8 matches have resulted with both teams scoring.

Leeds United Prediction – Can Leeds hold their own?

Premier League-elect Leeds United currently sit top of the Championship on goal difference above West Brom as they switch their focus to the third round of the FA Cup and a lucrative tie against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Leeds are in great form right now under manager, Marcelo Bielsa, as the Yorkshire outfit have lost just once out of their last 15 matches in all competitions, which came in the shape of a 2-1 defeat away at London side, Fulham in the Championship.

Being a cup match and also against a Premier League side away from home, it may be pushing the envelope to back a Leeds United win in Arsenal’s backyard here, but the visitors do stand a decent chance of claiming a top flight scalp here.

In addition, 6 of Leeds’s last 9 matches away from home have resulted with both teams scoring, so this looks the best option for this clash.


Key-Facts – Liverpool vs Everton

  • 6 of Arsenal’s last 8 matches have resulted with both teams scoring

  • 8 of the last 10 meetings between these two sides have seen both teams score


Betting Tips Verdict

Arsenal aren’t in convincing form right now while Leeds are capable of causing more than just a few problems.
