Arsenal News and Form

The Gunners suffered a 1-0 away loss at West Ham last weekend and that continued their poor form out on the road. But the flip side of that is that they are going so well at home. So it’s balancing out for them at the moment in a way. Arsenal are undefeated in their last ten Premier League home games. That’s where they are at at the Emirates. On home soil in the top flight, they have averaged over two goals a game. Less than half of the games at the Emirates have gone over 2.5 goals though which is a not to their defence. They have conceded at under a goal per game on average on home soil in the top flight this term. They have actually taken a clean sheet in three home games this season, although home and away combined they have not managed one in any of their last six. Arsenal’s overall home record in the EPL this season is W8 D2 L1 and that does suggest they are going to pose some problems to their London rivals in this one. So far this season Arsenal have faced each of the current top three at home in the league. They drew against Liverpool, lost against Man City and beat Spurs. So it’s not been terrible at home from them in the big games. Six of their eight home wins this season have been by a two-goal margin so that could be a little trend worth having a look at. The Gunners do pose an attacking threat as they are on a ten-match scoring streak at home. Arsenal have scored 10 and conceded 0 goals in the final fifteen minutes of home matches this term

Arsenal v Chelsea Head to Head

The Blues earned a 3-2 home win over Arsenal earlier this season The Blues are unbeaten in four EPL games against the Gunners (W2 D2) Arsenal are undefeated in two at home against the Blues in the League (W1 D1) Four of the last five league meetings have gone over 2.5 goals  
Key-Facts - Arsenal v Chelsea
  • Arsenal have not conceded a home goal in the final fifteen minutes of a match this season
  • The Gunners have hit the back of the net in each of their last ten home games going unbeaten in that sequence
  • Chelsea are on a three match winning streak away from home in the Premier league
 

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea pulled out a 2-1 home win over Newcastle last weekend, although it wasn’t the most convincing of displays, at least not in the first half. They are still badly missing an outright number nine. Still, the three points collected from the game has left hem on a four-match undefeated streak of form with the Blues having won three of the games in that sequence. They have only suffered one defeat in their last seven league fixtures now in a W5 D1 L1 record so are doing alright. Chelsea’s overall away record is pretty strong at W7 D1 L2 this season. Chelsea have only been away at one of the current top-five sides this season and that didn’t go well for them. They lost 3-1 at Spurs. Currently Chelsea have put together a three-match winning streak away from home in the top flight and each of those victories were by a one-goal margin. In total Chelsea have scored 19 and have conceded 8 away goals this season. They have picked up a clean sheet in five of their ten on the road so have had their defensive strengths as well as luck along the way. Those clean sheets have not been as frequent lately though as they have taken just one in their last five games. 80% of Chelsea’s road games in the EPL this season have ended over 2.5 goals. In just one away match this season as Chelsea been losing at the halftime break. Chelsea do have scoring form on the road as they have netted in each of their last seven games. They have actually opened the scoring in eight of their away games in the Premier League this season. They are pushing on for a top-four finish, only Tottenham and Liverpool have managed to post better away records in the top flight this season than Chelsea have. On top of that Chelsea have the joint second-best defensive record in the league

West Ham News and Form

The Hammers started the new year with a 2-2 draw against Brighton. That has left them with a W4 D1 L2 record in their last eight but have won only one of their last four. So their hot streak of form has cooled a bit. They have played five games so far this season against teams who are currently up in the top five and from those meetings the Hammers are at D1 L4. At home this season the Irons have produced an average of 1.45 goals per game but still over half of those home fixtures have ended over 3.5 goals. West Ham have come up with only one home clean sheet this season and in none of their last eight home games have they managed one. In 55% of West Ham’s home games this season, both teams have scored. Going back to their scoring, they have done well as they have scored at least two goals in six of their last eight games. Three of the four home wins they have earned have been by a two-goal margin. West Ham have been leading at the half time break just twice this season at home. All but four of their 16 home goals have been scored in the second period of games

West Ham v Arsenal Head to Head

Arsenal took a 3-1 win at home against West Ham earlier this season The Gunners are undefeated in seven against the Irons in all competitions Five of the last six EPL meetings have gone over 2.5 goals West Ham have drawn two of their last three at home against Arsenal (L1)

Arsenal News and Form

On New Year’s Day, Arsenal collected a 4-1 home victory over Fulham which leaves them at W2 D1 L2 in their last five league games. They haven’t had the greatest of seasons on their travels with a W4 D4 L3 record on the board. They have scored well all season away from the Emirates as they have produced an average of 2.2 goals per away game. 50% of their road games this term have gone over 4.5 goals so there is an expectancy that this will be a high scoring game too. Arsenal have not earned a clean sheet on their travels yet and both teams have scored in 100% of Arsenal’s away fixtures. They have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last five home and away. Arsenal are currently winless in four away from home (D2 L2) so have been struggling a little bit. Of the four wins they have collected this season away from home, all but one of them have been by a one-goal margin. The Gunners have netted in each of their last twenty Premier League games (home and away combined). They have yet to be leading at the halftime break in an away fixture this season at all (D7 L3) so the half time draw may be worth a look.

Blackpool v Arsenal Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th January 2019

Arsenal
Blackpool v Arsenal Betting Tips - FA Cup, 5th January 5.30pm What a great tie for the Seasiders this is. The chance to host one of the country's elite on home soil. Blackpool are heavy, heavy underdogs for this tie but this is all about the occasion for them. They basically have nothing to lose. Arsenal will be exported to get off too comfortable start and avoid a mishap like they did in last season’s third round. Read our predictions for Blackpool v Arsenal.

Blackpool v Arsenal Preview

League One side Blackpool, who are currently sitting in 10th place, have a bit of a dream tie in this one. Will they be able to come up with something special at Bloomfield Road? That something special may just be getting on the scoresheet because they are big underdogs here. They are currently badly out of form with just one victory taken in their last nine fixtures. So that really doesn’t bode all that well for them. They have failed to score in three of their last four games played as well. Looking a little further back they have failed to score in six of their last nine. They are W2 D1 L2 in their last five home games. They opened their FA Cup campaign with 3-2 win at Exeter, before needing a replay back at Bloomfield Road to get past non-league Solihull Moors. The Gunners have enjoyed plenty of FA Cup success in the modern era and will be hoping for a comfortable ride. They lost against Nottingham Forest in the third round of last season’s FA Cup. Their form has just going a little patchy with a W2 D1 L3 record in their last five games and they have become a little unsteady on the road. Arsenal are winless in four road games (D2 L2) and have won just two of their last seven away from home. While the Gunners do have plenty to offer in attack, they haven’t been great defensively. They have one clean sheet in their last seven away games only. But how badly will the Seasiders be able to get at them? These two met in the EFL Cup this season with Arsenal winning 2-1 at home. That’s a four-match winning streak over Blackpool they have gone against them and they have not lost any of their last nine against the Seasiders.

Blackpool v Arsenal Predictions

Arsenal to win: This isn’t a game which Arsenal should be losing. While their defence isn’t great, Blackpool are struggling for goals and so the defence of the Gunners should withstand this test. Arsenal to win to nil at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 2nd, 2019 at 9:05 pm)

Arsenal News and Form

Arsenal had a humbling experience at Anfield on the weekend, losing 5-1 against Liverpool. Arsenal have now gone W1 D1 L2 in their last four Premier League games now so they have gone off the boil a little bit. Their home form for the EPL season is pretty solid at W7 D2 L1 and they have won each of their last three at the Emirates. The Gunners have averaged two goals per home game this season so have been strong in that department. They have conceded an average of under a goal per home league game as well. They have taken a clean sheet in three home league games this season. Arsenal have been level at half time in six of their ten league home games. They have scored in each of their last nine home games. Home and away combined they are on a 19-match scoring streak in the top flight. Nothing wrong with that, but they haven't taken a clean sheet in any of their last four. The Gunners have produced 80% of their home goals in the second period of matches. Only Man City and Liverpool have better EPL home records this season than Arsenal. The Gunners go back into action as the third top-scorers in his season’s Premier League.

Arsenal v Fulham Head to Head

Arsenal won 5-1 at Craven Cottage earlier this season The Gunners are on a four-match winning streak in the EPL against Fulham Fulham are winless in six against Arsenal (D1 L5) Four of the last six meetings have gone over 2.5 goals

Fulham News and Form

Fulham managed to find a winner against Huddersfield at Craven Cottage on the weekend. It was a late goal from Aleksandar Mitrovic after the Cottagers had missed a penalty in the game. So that is now an unbeaten W1 D2 run of form that Fulham are on in the Premier League at the moment. Their improvement of form has left them just the one point from safety, but this is going to be a tough game at Arsenal for them. In Fulham’s last away game in the top flight, they collected a point from a 0-0 draw at Newcastle. That was their first clean sheet of the season. But it was only their second point earned away from home this season (D2 L8). In total, they only produced the six goals away from home in the top flight this season. They have conceded an average of 2.4 goals per away game which is where they have fallen down. Surprisingly though they have managed to get a clean sheet in two of their last three after having gone so long without one this season. Each of their last four league games now have stayed under 2.5 goals. The Cottagers have been trailing at the break in six of their ten away games. They have conceded the opening goal in seven of their ten away games and the Cottagers have the worst away record and the worst defensive record in this season’s Premier League.

Bate Borisov v Arsenal

Arsenal won their Europa League group with plenty of room to spare and were one of the seeds for the round of 32 draw. They get a comfortable looking tie as well as they take on BATE Borisov. The Belarusians managed to squeeze through in second place from their Europa League group behind Chelsea. They were beaten twice by the Blues in the group stage campaign. Arsenal and BATE were together in last season's Europa League group stage and the Gunners had a comfortable time of things. They won 4-2 in Belarus and then 6-0 back at home. To Qualify: Arsenal 1/12, BATE 7/1* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 2:16 pm)

Malmo v Chelsea

Chelsea comfortably won their Europa League group, dropping just the two points along the way. Like Arsenal, they were a seeded team for the draw and they get a comfortable tie as well as they take on Swedish side Malmo. Malmo had a tough scrap in their Europa League group, where they finished second behind Genk with a W2 D3 L1 record, just holding off Besiktas. This will be the first-ever meeting between the two clubs. It’s not too surprising though that the Premier League side are strong favourites. To Qualify: Chelsea 1/33, Malmo 14/1* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 2:16 pm)

Other Notable Ties

There are a couple of stand-out ties in the draw for the round of 32. One of them sees Rapid Vienna v Inter take centre stage. Inter got past the Austrians on their way to winning their first ever UEFA Cup title back in the 1990/91 season. Rapid Vienna finished second in their Europa League group this season, but level on points with Villarreal. Inter drops down from the Champions League after failing to edge Spurs to second place behind Barcelona. Inter are 1/14 odds-on favourites to qualify* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 2:16 pm). Lazio v Sevilla is the biggest tie of the round though. The Italians will have their hands full here in trying to contain the five-time Champions. Lazio finished second in their Europa League group behind Eintracht Frankfurt with a W3 L3 record so they weren’t particularly strong. Sevilla won their group but were pushed all the way by Krasnodar and Standard Liege. This should be a really good tie and it is the Spaniards who are going as the 1/2 odds-on favourites To Qualify* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 17th, 2018 at 2:16 pm).
