Man City 8/11 favourites for Premier League 2019/20 title

Premier League Betting
So it begins. Premier League 2019/20 betting is already open and the odds on Manchester City and Liverpool's title chances are on the board. Manchester City, who beat Brighton the final day of the season to edge the Reds at the end of a stunning title race, are 8/11 favourites to claim the title* (betting odds taken from bet365 on May 13th, 2019 at 8:09 pm) for the third season in a row.

Premier League 2019/20 Winner Odds*

Man City 8/11 Liverpool 11/4 Spurs 12/1 Man Utd 16/1 Chelsea 20/1 Arsenal 20/1 * (betting odds taken from bet365 on May 13th, 2019 at 8:09 pm) Their great rivals Manchester United are the only side in the history of the Premier League to have won it three times on the bounce. Liverpool, who pushed Manchester City so hard, losing just one game all season, are 11/4 second favourites for next season’s top flight title. Such was the dominance of the two teams in the 2018/19 season that no other team is in single figures at the moment. Of course, all of that could change over the summer if someone else starts splashing the cash around.

Challengers a long way back in the odds

That won’t be Chelsea who finished third, after what was a difficult campaign for them. They have been hit with a transfer ban, so they are stuck and that is reflected in their 20/1 odds to win the 2019/20 Premier League title. There is a strong possibility that they could lose Eden Hazard in the summer as well to Real Madrid. Tottenham, who finished fourth are at 12/1 odds to finally make the breakthrough and get their hands on the title. But that will all be dependant on whether or not they are going to attack in the transfer market, something which they have not done in the last two windows. Arsenal, who had a major collapse at the end of last season are 20/1 shots like Chelsea. Then there is Manchester United, who limped across the finish line at the end of the season in sixth place. They are 16/1 odds to win the Premier League next season. With all the troubles they seem to have had, a dreadful sequence of form at the end of the campaign, coupled with the bulk of their squad being criticised for lack of effort and below-par in terms of quality, have a huge summer ahead with an overhaul.

Burnley v Arsenal Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th May 2019

Burnley
Burnley v Arsenal Betting Tips - Premier League, 12th May 3.00pm Burnley have just lost their way again with only one point earned from their last three Premier League fixtures. However, they get the chance to sign off for the season in style at home. The Clarets will be taking on an Arsenal side who are in a terrible mess at the moment and who last weekend, threw away their chance of earning a top-four finish. The Gunners do still have a chance to defend fifth place over Manchester United. Read our predictions for Burnley v Arsenal.

Burnley News and Form

Burnley have suffered back to back league defeats, not scoring a goal in either of those losses. On home soil in this season’s top flight, the Clarets have produced the seven wins (D2 L9), but five of those have been since December 30th. Against the top six sides at Turf Moor this season, Burnley have only come up with a W1 L4 record in such games. The one game in that sequence which they did win was against Spurs. Burnley have averaged 1.3 goals per home fixture but in each of their last five home Premier League games, they have scored exactly two goals. Burnley were on a twelve match scoring streak on home soil, before they were shut out in a loss against Man City in their last home game.

  Burnley are W2 L3 in their last five home games, with the two wins in that sequence, both being 2-0 wins over Wolves and Cardiff. Burnley picked up a clean sheet in 28% of their home league fixtures, with each of their last three going under 2.5 goals. Six of Burnley's nine home losses this season have been by a margin of at least two goals, so they have had defensive struggles. Burnley have scored 61% of their home goals in the first period of games. Just the bottom three teams, along with Bournemouth are the ones to have conceded more league goals than Burnley have done in the Premier League. Burnley start the weekend in 15th place and will either finish there or one place either way.

Key-Facts - Burnley v Arsenal
  • The Clarets have scored in 12 of their last 13 home games
  • Burnley have the fourth-worst defensive record in the EPL
  • Arsenal have lost four of their last six league games
 

Arsenal News and Form

All that Arsenal could come up with last weekend was a draw against Brighton. That was a costly result for them too because it’s unlikely that they will make the final four in the table. In order to that, they have to claim maximum points, hope that Spurs lose and overturn an 8-goal deficit to the Lilywhites in the process. Arsenal have really suffered with their league form at the end of the season, going just W1 D1 L4 in their last six league games now. Most of their troubles have come away from home as well where they are on a three-match losing streak, scoring just the one goal in that sequence. It’s worth bearing in mind that Arsenal had extra work in midweek as they went to Valencia and recorded a win there reach the Europa League final. So that is where their big focus will be now as winning that trophy will get them to the Champions League next season. 72% of Arsenal’s league away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. The Gunners have only taken one clean sheet away from home this season, which was a 1-0 success at Watford in mid-April. Both teams have scored in 78% of Arsenal’s away games. Arsenal have averaged 1.5 goals per game on the road, conceding at an average of 1.9 per game. Five of their six away wins have been by a one-goal margin.

Burnley v Arsenal Predictions

Burnley to win: Burnley at home on the final day of the season taking on an Arsenal side who had just crumbled in defence seems like a reasonable enough opportunity to back the Clarets in a double chance bet. Arsenal’s form just makes them so untrustworthy.

Valencia v Arsenal Predictions & Betting Odds – 9th May 2019

Arsenal
Valencia v Arsenal Betting Tips - Europa League, 9th May 8.00pm Arsenal collected a 3-1 home victory over the Spaniards in the first leg of this Europa League semi-final tie. So that is a nice advantage that the Gunners have for themselves. However, this tie looks to be well in the balance with Valencia having an away goal. They will be looking to hit back hard at the Mestalla. Read our predictions for Valencia v Arsenal.

Valencia News and Form

Valencia began this season up in the UEFA Champions League, but they are only managed a third-place finish behind group winners Juventus and the second-placed Manchester United. However, Valencia are very strong home side when it comes to the Europa League and they are going to need to call on all of their home strengths in the second leg of this tie. Their record at the Mestalla in the Europa League season currently is an eight-match winning streak there, going undefeated in their last 11. That’s a record not to be messed with. In that eight-game winning sequence, they have scored 22 goals and have conceded just three.

  The last team to take an away win at Valencia in the competition was actually a Premier league side though and that was Swansea back in the 2013/14 group stage. Of the 19 UEFA competition ties in which Valencia have lost away in the first leg, they have recovered to win on aggregate on ten occasions. If they were to manage to get the first goal of the game on the board with enough time to chase the second, then you may have to start wondering about the mental strength of Arsenal’s defence. It is just a 2-0 scoreline on the night that the Spaniards need to qualify for the final. Valencia did take home wins in the Champions League group stage against Manchester United and Young Boys, losing against Juventus. On their drop down to the Europa League they moved past Celtic with a 1-0 home win and proceeded to dispatch Krasnodar and local rivals Villarreal from the competition. Valencia have been paired up with Arsenal in UEFA competition on three previous occasions. The Spaniards have come out on top each time. Valencia’s home record in Europe against English opposition is W12 D16 L10 and they have won six of their nine two-legged ties against English opposition.  
Key-Facts - Valencia v Arsenal
  • Valencia have won their last eight Europa League home games
  • The Spaniards have won each of the three previous occasions they have been paired up with Arsenal in Europe
  • Arsenal have lost two of their three knockout phase away fixtures this season
 

Arsenal News and Form

At the end of the season Arsenal’s Premier League form has taken a nosedive, losing four of their last six EPL fixtures, winning just the one game during that run of fixtures. They could only manage a home draw against Brighton on the weekend and that pretty much shut the door on their chances of a top-four finish. So they are going to have to get extra focused on their Europa League title challenge because that is the only way into the Champions League for the next season. So maybe there for league form will turn into a positive European result. Regardless need to get themselves together for this tough visit to Spain. They do have a good advantage with a 3-1 home victory posted in the first leg, but there is always that lingering doubt over the away goal that they conceded. How badly will that come back to haunt them? Arsenal have lost their last four two-legged ties against Spanish teams. The Gunners have won 11 of the 34 UEFA competition fixtures against Spanish opposition, following their win in North London last week. Their away form in the Europa League this season has gone patchy after having won all of their three group stage away fixtures. Arsenal are now W1 L2 in the knockout stages of this season's competition away from home, the defeats coming against BATE and Rennes in the round of 32 and round of 16 respectively. In the quarter-finals they did win their away game, collecting a 1-0 victory at Napoli. Arsenal’s away record in the Europa League is pretty strong at W8 D1 L4. Across their away, games in the competition Arsenal have scored 21 goals and have conceded 10. Before their winner Napoli in the last round, the Gunners were on a four-match winless streak of away form in the competition knockout phase. Arsenal have won the first leg at home in 19 UEFA competition ties and have prevailed in 17 of them.

Arsenal v Brighton Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th May 2019

Arsenal
Arsenal v Brighton Betting Tips - Premier League, 5th May 4.30pm Arsenal have to at least match whatever it is that Chelsea produce this weekend in order to get themselves a chance on the final weekend of the season to take a top-four finish. They have to shake off some recent poor form to get that completed though. Brighton still aren’t mathematically safe, but they hold a four-point cushion above the drop zone. Read our predictions for Arsenal v Brighton.

Arsenal News and Form

Can Arsenal dust themselves down, shake off some poor league form and keep their hopes of a top-four finish alive this weekend? The Gunners have fallen into a pretty big slump with a three-match losing streak going in the EPL. They conceded exactly three-goal in each of those losses as well, which were against Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester. Their last home game saw them go down against Palace, but Arsenal had been in tremendous shape at the Emirates prior to that 2-3 reverse. The defeat against the Eagles snapped a ten-match winning streak of home form that Arsenal had been on. Overall this season Arsenal have produced a W14 D2 L2 record on home soil in the top flight.
Arsenal -1.5 Asian Handicap v Brighton
23/20
Unibet
They have won eight of their nine games against teams currently in the bottom half of the table (the one exception the game against Crystal Palace). Their goal scoring output has been high, the Gunners averaging 2.3 goals per home game. While it has been all over the place recently, their defence this season has not done too badly. They have earned a clean sheet in almost 40% of home fixtures. Of their fourteen home successes this season, 12 of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. The Gunners are on a seventeen match scoring streak at home at the moment, netting at least two goals in each of their last nine at the Emirates.

Arsenal v Brighton Head to Head

Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw at Brighton earlier this season The Seagulls are undefeated in their last two against the Gunners Arsenal are W12 D3 L3 in the overall head to head against the Seagulls Both teams have scored in six of the last seven meetings  
Key-Facts - Arsenal v Brighton
  • Arsenal have won ten of their last eleven league home games
  • The Gunners average over two goals per home fixture
  • Brighton have scored one goal in their last seven EPL fixtures
 

Brighton News and Form

Brighton are not mathematically safe. It is four-point cushion over Cardiff which they have plus the extra factor of dominating the Bluebirds in the goal difference area as well. Will, that come into play at the end of the day? This is a tough finish for Brighton because after making this trip to North London, they will finish the season back on the south coast at home against Manchester City. They can’t exactly bank on points coming from these two remaining fixtures. All that Brighton have to do this weekend is at least match whatever result that Cardiff come up with, so they will preserve their top-flight status. So it’s going to be all hands to the pump at the Emirates for them. Brighton have taken just the two points from their last seven league games though so are in bad shape. They have scored one goal in their last seven league fixtures. The Seagulls have posted an away record of W3 D3 L12 this season scoring just the fifteen league goals away from the Amex. To their credit they almost got a point against Spurs in their last away game, conceding the only goal of the game just two minutes from time. The Seagulls have taken one point from their last three games out on the road and they have picked up a clean sheet in just 11% of away games. Of their away defeats, six of the twelve have been by a margin at least a two-goal margin. Only the current bottom three have worse away records than that of Brighton. The Seagulls have lost found themselves losing at half time in exactly half of their home games. They have failed to hit the back of the net in any of their last three on the road.

Over 2.5 goals at 8/11 Arsenal to win & both teams to score at 2/1 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 2nd, 2019 at 7:34 p.m.)

Arsenal v Brighton Predictions

Arsenal to win: The Gunners look the likely winners here. However, they had that extra Europa League work on Thursday and haven’t been great at the back recently. Brighton do have to push here, so the home win & both teams to score option looks a pretty decent proposition for this Emirates clash.

Arsenal
Arsenal v Valencia Betting Tips - Europa League, 2nd May 8.00pm These two semi-finalists are pretty much in the same boat. They both have work to do in order to get into the top four in their respective domestic leagues. So the way into the Champions League next season could be through by winning the Europa League. So it’s a massive tie for both of these and both have fallen out of form a bit recently. Read our predictions for Arsenal v Valencia.

Arsenal News and Form

This is no easy tie for Arsenal, who have certainly had a big drop off in form in the Premier League. A three-match losing streak (conceding exactly three goals in each) has left them with some difficulty in getting a top-four finish. So the Europa League may be the path for them into the Champions League next season, that’s how important this is. The Gunners made it to the semifinals last season of the competition where they were beaten by Spanish opposition in Atletico Madrid. This time they take on Valencia, who could at the end of the day, are not going to be easy to deal with. Arsenal are W1 D1 L3 from their five previous games against Valencia and from their 33 previous matches against Spanish opposition, Arsenal have taken ten wins. Of the 15 losses against Spanish teams which they have suffered, three have been in European finals. Arsenal do have a positive home record against La Liga teams of W8 D4 L3 and their last two have been a 0-2 reverse against Barcelona and 1-1 draw against Atletico in last season’s semifinals.

Bet at 888sport
  The Gunners have lost their last four two-legged ties against teams from La Liga. But there are positives despite all of that. They made life easy for themselves in the group stage and have backed themselves with home advantage in this season’s knockout stages. In their round of 32 tie against BATE and round of 16 tie against Rennes, it was home successes that got them through after losing the away first leg in both of those ties. They got it together through back at the Emirates. They started their quarter-final tie against Napoli at home and ended up easing past the Italians on a 3-0 aggregate, so may it works out better for them playing at home first. Arsenal have a W9 D3 L1 record at home in the Europa League and in that sequence of games, the Gunners have scored 31 goals and have conceded eight. The Gunners have banked a clean sheet in each of their last five home games as well.

Arsenal v Valencia Head to Head

This will be the sixth match between Arsenal and Valencia They were last together in the 2002/03 Champions League Arsenal are winless in three against Valencia (D1 L2) Valencia are W2 D2 L1 in the head to head against Arsenal  
Key-Facts - Arsenal v Valencia
  • Arsenal have only ever lost one Europa League home game
  • The Gunners have lost their last four two-legged ties against Spanish teams
  • Valencia are unbeaten in six Europa League games this campaign
 

Valencia News and Form

Valencia have lost their last two league fixtures, so maybe they have had one eye on this tie. They are sitting sixth in La Liga at the moment, but like Arsenal’s situation in the Premier League, Valencia have some work to do to scrap out a top-four finish and reach the Champions League next season. Valencia started this season in the Champions League where they took a W2 D2 L2 in their group to finish third behind Man Utd and Juventus. They then were very composed in eliminating Celtic in the round of 32 before taking out Krasnodar. That set them up with a local derby against Villarreal in a massive quarter-final tie. It turned out to be a pretty one-sided affair though, with Valencia winning the first leg away from home. They ended up 5-1 winners on aggregate. So Valencia unbeaten in their six Europa League games played this season. This is their third appearance in the semifinals of the Europa League, and their two previous appearances both ended in defeat against fellow Spanish teams. Valencia have lost just two of their last seven European games (W2 D3). Before their 3-1 success at Villarreal in the last round, they had been on a four-match losing away streak in Europa League quarter-finals and semi-finals combined. So they have stopped that rot. Valencia aren’t a bad side at all, perhaps their one downfall is that they don’t score heavily. They are the lowest scoring team inside the top six in La Liga currently for example. Only one of their six Europa League matches this season have gone over 2.5 goals this season.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester earned a 2-2 draw against West Ham last weekend. They have lost just one of their last six league games now, winning four of those. So they have been shaping up pretty well recently. If they want to keep their hopes of a top-seven finish alive they really are going to need to find a way to win this one. Leicester have produced a W7 D2 L8 record on home soil, winning three of their last four on home soil. Leicester have been hitting the back of the net well, as they have scored at least two goals in seven of their last eight, home and away. The Foxes have averaged 1.2 goals per home game this season and have conceded at a shade under that. They have picked up a clean sheet in 24% of home games. Leicester haven’t managed a clean sheet in any of their last four played though, home and away. The last two games at the King Power have gone under 2.5 goals and of the goals that they have conceded on home turf, 60% of them have been in the first half of games. The Foxes have opened the scoring in only five of their home fixtures this season in the EPL. They still have something to play for, can they take advantage of Arsenal’s poor away form?

  • Leicester have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last eight
  • Arsenal have lost three of their last four league games
 

Arsenal News and Form

Arsenal picked up a 3-1 defeat against Wolves which was straight after their collapse against Crystal Palace last weekend. So that’s been a really poor effort from them in the race for a top-four finish. That’s three defeats in their last four games in total now (W1). Arsenal are battling with Chelsea and Manchester United for that fourth place in the table at the end of the season. So their drop of form has come at the wrong time. The Gunners have claimed one win in their last four out on the road, losing two of those. Those defeats were against Everton and Wolves inside their last three away games. Arsenal’s away form this season haven’t been great at all. They have picked up a W6 D4 L7 record on their travels. In their nine away games played this season against sides currently in the top ten, Arsenal have produced a really poor W1 D2 L5 record from their eight such games. Arsenal have scored a total of 28 away goals at an average of 1.65 per game. They have conceded heavily though at an average of 1.8 per road fixture. Almost three-quarters of their away games have ended up going over 2.5 goals this season. The Gunners have managed only the one clean sheet on their travels this season, and that’s it.

Arsenal
Wolves v Arsenal Betting Tips - Premier League, 24th April 7.45pm Both of these had slightly disappointing weekends in top-flight action. Wolves were held at home by Brighton which means that there is pressure on them now in trying to get a top seven finish. Arsenal’s hopes of a top-four finish were dented as they suffered a London Derby defeat at home against Crystal Palace. Read our predictions for Wolves v Arsenal.

Wolves News and Form

Wolves could only manage a 0-0 home draw against Brighton on the weekend. Considering they are trying to get a top seven finish, that will have been a bit of a disappointing result for them. That leaves Wolves with only one win in their last five Premier League games, so their form has faded just a little bit. Still, there is a top-seven finish as a target to play for and they are going to need to take advantage of home games like this to get there. Overall this season Wolves have produced a home record of W8 D4 L5 and they are undefeated in their last six on home soil. In their five home games played against others from the big six this season, Wolves are W2 D1 L2. Wolves have produced a least two goals in four of their last six games at home in the Premier League. Overall they have averaged 1.4 goals per home fixtures this season during this campaign. Just 35% of league games at Molineux this term have made it over 2.5 goals. Part of the reason for the low scoring games there is the defence of Wolves which has been pretty good this season. They have earned a clean sheet in 35% of their home games. Wolves have been level at the halftime break in nine of their home games this season. They have produced 71% of their home goals after the halftime break.

  • Only 35% of Wolves’ home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals
  • all but one of Arsenal’s away wins have been by a one goal margin this season
 

Arsenal News and Form

Arsenal crashed at home on the weekend with a 3-2 reverse against Crystal Palace in a London Derby. Arsenal were in superb home form before that upset. The thing about Arsenal is that their push for a top-four finish has largely been based on their home form. It has not been the most convincing of seasons away from home from them. Arsenal are just W6 D4 L6 away from home this season in the top flight. The Gunners have lost three of their six away games since the turn of the new year (W2 D1) so they certainly have been far from a reliable road side. The loss against Crystal Palace on the weekend heaps extra pressure on them for this one. Arsenal won their last away game which was a 1-0 victory over Watford. Arsenal were playing against 10 men for most of their game and it gave them the chance to claim their first away clean sheet of the entire season. In attack Arsenal have averaged a good 1.7 goals per road game, however, that is roughly the rate at which they have conceded at on their travels. 69% of Arsenal’s away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Both teams have scored in 81% of Arsenal's road games this season. Five of Arsenal’s six away wins this season have been by just the one goal margin and the Gunners have opened the scoring in 10 of their away games during this campaign.

Wolves v Arsenal Predictions

Draw: the draw in the match outright has some appeal in this one because Arsenal have not been brilliant out on their travels this season, while Wolves are a good home side. Wolves have already proven themselves very well against stronger teams in the division and can hold Arsenal off. Draw.

Ladbrokes go 8/1 on all-English Finals in UEFA Competition

Football Betting
There is a chance this season that both UEFA competition finals could end up as all English affairs. In the Europa League, Chelsea and Arsenal are both through to the semi-finals and on the opposite side of the draw. So that’s one potential. The other is in the Champions League where Tottenham and Liverpool could be facing each other in the big finale. Ladbrokes have 8/1 odds on there being an All English final in both competitions this season* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 24th, 2019 at 11:10 pm).

Champions League Outright winner odds*

Barcelona 13/8 Liverpool 5/2 Spurs 9/2 Ajax 19/4 * (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 24th, 2019 at 11:10 pm) [bbutton bookmaker="ladbrokes"] [toc heading_levels="2"] Tottenham will be facing up to Ajax in their Champions League semi-final. The Lilywhites nearly didn't even get out of the group stage, but after big successes in ties against Borussia Dortmund and then that epic against Man City, they are through to the final four. Spurs are 4/5 To Qualify from the tie* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 24th, 2019 at 11:10 pm), but given what Ajax have produced it may not be that easy for them. Ajax pulled off the shock of the tournament in knocking out reigning champions Real Madrid in the round of sixteen after a thumping second leg win at the Bernabeu. They were at it again in the quarterfinals, powering their way past Juventus. In the other semi-final it will see Liverpool facing up to Barcelona. That’s no easy task either. Liverpool made their way past Bayern Munich in their round of sixteen tie and then had a comfortable time of things in seeing off Porto in the quarterfinals. Now things get harder. Much harder for them. Liverpool are 6/5 underdogs To Qualify from the tie with Barca at 8/13* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 24th, 2019 at 11:10 pm). Barcelona coasted their way past Manchester United in the quarterfinals of the tournament, posting a 4-0 win over the Red Devils on aggregate. Barca just have a phenomenal home record in Europe and with the first leg at the Nou Camp, they will be looking to put enough distance between themselves and the Reds before visiting Anfield.

Europa League Outright Winner Odds*

Chelsea 6/4 Arsenal 5/2 Valencia 4/1 Eintracht Frankfurt 7/1 * (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 24th, 2019 at 11:10 pm) In the Europa League, Chelsea nearly collapsed their way out of the tournament in the quarterfinals against Slavia Prague. They were 4-1 up at home in the second leg of the tie at the halftime break, 5-1 on aggregate. But then early in the second half, they let Prague get a couple of quick goals to rattle them. Two more conceded and Chelsea would have been out. But that really has been their only scare in a very comfortable campaign. Chelsea are 4/9 To Qualify from their semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 24th, 2019 at 11:10 pm). Arsenal have made hard work of things in the knockout stages because of some poor away form. In the round of 32 and in the round of 16 they had to recover from having lost the first legs of those ties away from home. They were much more comfortable at home in the first leg of their quarter-final tie against Napoli, beating the Italians 3-0 on aggregate. Arsenal are 4/6 To Qualify from their semi-final tie against Valencia* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on April 24th, 2019 at 11:10 pm).

Arsenal News and Form

The Gunners collected a 1-0 win out at Watford last weekend, but they really failed to press home their advantage against ten men and largely looked second best. Out on their travels, Arsenal have had a poor season. But their home form reads very positive. The Gunners are W14 D2 L1 this season at home in the top flight. They have won each of their last ten home games this season and they beaten three of the other top six at the Emirates this term. So they have done alright against stronger teams. Arsenal are currently running on a sixteen match scoring streak at home in the league. The Gunners have produced at least two goals in each of their last eight on home soil. They have averaged 2.3 goals per home fixtures this season, but they have also been strong defensively. Just 41% of Arsenal’s home games this season in the top flight have gone over 2.5 goals. That is because Arsenal have been solid in defence with them having conceded at just 0.7 goals per home fixture. In total, they have conceded 12 home goals. 12 their 14 home wins this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. Arsenal have produced 67% of their home goals after the halftime break, while they have opened the scoring in all but five of their home fixtures. The only two teams to have outscored Arsenal this season in the top flight are Manchester City and Liverpool.

Arsenal v Crystal Palace Head to Head

There was a 2-2 draw between these teams earlier this season Arsenal are undefeated in their last three Premier League games against Palace Crystal Palace are winless in their last seven league visits to Arsenal Each of the last three meetings have gone over 3.5 goals  
Key-Facts - Arsenal v Crystal Palace
  • The Gunners are on a 10 match home winning streak
  • Arsenal have averaged over two goals per home game this season
  • Crystal Palace have won three of their last four away games
 

Crystal Palace News and Form

The Eagles lost their last game which was a 3-1 home defeat against Manchester City. The Eagles have alternated between a win and a loss in each of their last eight Premier League games. Next up in that sequence would be a win for them if that continues like that. Out on their travels, this season in the top flight Crystal Palace hold a W7 D2 L8 record which is better than what they have managed on home soil. There is every reason to suggest that they could be a threat in this game with the Eagles having won three of their last four games out on the road (L1). If you look back further at their extended away form, they have won five of their last eight away games in the top flight (D1 L3) and it has been their ability to pick up away points that has seen them move free of relegation troubles. Crystal Palace have earned a clean sheet in 29% of their away games and they have scored 26 and have conceded 26 away from Selhurst Park. Palace though have only claimed one clean sheet in their last six EPL away games. The Eagles do have a good half time away record of W8 D6 L3. The Eagles have scored 65% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures and have conceded 77% of their away goals after the halftime break.

Arsenal
Napoli v Arsenal Betting Tips - UEFA Europa League, 18th April 8.05pm Arsenal have a leg-up in this quarter-final tie as they earned a very good 2-0 home win in the first encounter. However, they are not the greatest of travellers and are likely going to find themselves under pressure in Naples. Napoli are no slouches on home soil and there has to be better to come from them than what they showed in London. Read our predictions for Napoli v Arsenal.

Napoli News and Form

Napoli need to get their home form going again as they try to haul themselves back into this tie. It is a 2-0 deficit that the Partenopei have to make up. They started the season up in the Champions League where they booked third place behind PSG and Liverpool. They eased into the Europa League with a 5-1 aggregate success over Zurich before getting the better of RB Salzburg 4-3 on aggregate in the last round. This is just their second appearance in the quarterfinals of the Europa League, Napoli winning their previous appearance 6-3 over Wolfsburg in the 2014/15 season. Napoli have won five of their seven home fixtures against Premier League opposition (D1 L1). That includes a win over Liverpool this season in the UCL. This season Napoli have won four of five home games in Europe and in that sequence of matches they only conceded two goals. Their home record in the knocked phase of the Europa League is W5 D5 L2. The Italians have suffered the one defeat in Naples all season in all competitions, that being against Juventus in Serie A. The Partenopei have won only three of the 12 UEFA competition ties in which they have lost the first leg away.  
Key-Facts - Napoli v Arsenal
  • Napoli are undefeated at home in Europe this season
  • Napoli took a UCL win over Liverpool at home earlier this season
  • Arsenal have won five of their last nine games in Italy
 

Arsenal News and Form

So can Arsenal defend their 2-0 advantage on the road? They did get through to the semi-finals last season after beating CSKA Moscow 6-3 on aggregate. The Gunners only dropped two points in the group stage this season but then they have had their ups and downs in the knockout phase. Arsenal lost the first leg of both of their ties against BATE and Rennes in the round of 32 and round of 16 respectively, before turning things around on home soil. The only previous time that Arsenal went up against Napoli was in the 2013/14 Champions League group stage. Back in that 2013/14 season Arsenal and Napoli traded 2-0 home wins, so that scoreline has cropped up in all three previous competitive matches between these two. The Gunners hold an away record of W6 D4 L6 in Italy. They haven’t done too bad there recently, winning five of their last nine visits. That includes last season’s visit to AC Milan in the round of sixteen when Arsenal produced a 2-0 success at the San Siro. The Gunners have won both of their previous European quarter-finals against Serie A opposition without conceding a goal. In total through this season’s Europa League campaign Arsenal have picked up six clean sheets. From their previous twelve away games played in the Europa League, Arsenal are at W7 D1 L4. Arsenal have progressed in 16 of the 18 previous occasions of winning the first leg at home in UEFA competition.

Napoli v Arsenal Predictions

Napoli to win: The Italians are not going to go down without a fight on home soil in this tie. They have plenty to play for and Arsenal aren’t the greatest of away sides. If Napoli get the first goal, this tie blows wide open. Napoli to win at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 13th, 2019 at 5:02 p.m.).

Watford News and Form

Watford will be heading to Wembley with an FA Cup to look forward too. On top of that, there is a chance that they can make Europe next season as well. They are in with a chance of a top seven finish. Their form at home right now is good. The Hornets are on a three-match winning streak on home soil, going undefeated in their last five there. While they have handled themselves well against others in the league, each of their last six league defeats have been by against one of the Big Six. Their overall record at Vicarage Road this season is W8 D2 L5 where they have averaged 1.5 goals per game. 73% of Watford’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Their most notable home win this season was against Spurs, so they do have it in them to beat the top sides. Of their home wins in the top flight this season, five of them have been by a one-goal margin only. Watford have failed to collected a clean sheet in any of their last six league games, home and away. Each of those six have ended up going over 2.5 goals. Only four times this season have Watford been leading at half-time in a home fixture. The Hornets have scored 70% of their home goals in the second period of fixtures.

Watford v Arsenal Head to Head

Arsenal were 2-0 winners at home over Watford in September Things are even at two wins each in the last four EPL meetings Watford won this corresponding fixture 2-1 last season 11 of the last 12 meetings in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals  
Key-Facts - Watford v Arsenal
  • Watford are unbeaten in five at Vicarage Road
  • The Hornets are on a three match winning streak on home soil
  • Arsenal have won only one of their last nine away games
 

Arsenal News and Form

The Gunners took a 1-0 defeat at Everton in their last league fixture. That loss saw a six-match undefeated streak of form that they were on, snapped. They haven’t been having a good time of things at all this season away from home. They have taken just one away win in their last nine played away from the Emirates. They are still yet to earn an away clean sheet this season either. The overall away record of Arsenal is pretty poor at W5 D4 L6. They have not won an away game against any side currently sitting in the top half of the table losing four of six such encounters. Arsenal have averaged 1.8 goals per game against them away from home this season and 73% of their road fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. All but one of their away victories this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. Four of their six away defeats have been by just the one-goal margin. The Gunners have conceded 61% of their away goals in the first period of matches, but despite that, they have opened the scoring in nine of their 15 road fixtures. Arsenal do have the firepower, as only Man City and Liverpool have outscored them in the EPL this season, and they average 1.7 goals per away game. But can their defence stand up to the test?

Watford v Arsenal Tips & Odds

Over 2.5 goals 4/7 Watford to win match outright at 11/5 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 12th, 2019 at 5:17 p.m.)

Watford v Arsenal Predictions

Watford to win: The Hornets look well priced on home soil in this one to throw down a challenge to Arsenal, who haven’t looked great on their travels. Watford’s confidence and spirits should be high after their FA Cup semi-final heroics, and they have a good home from behind them. Home win.

Arsenal News and Form

The Gunners were as comfortable as you like in the group stage of this season’s Europa League. However, they have the lost the first leg of the two knockout stage ties so far. That was against BATE and then Rennes. So they have shown some character in turning things around at least. Can they get a comfortable result at home here? This is just the second meeting between them, following their group stage meeting in the 2013/14 Champions League? The two traded 2-0 home wins. Arsenal have a home record of W8 D3 L1 from two Europa League campaigns. Arsenal have a home record of W10 D4 L2 against Italian opposition. So that’s very positive from them. They have taken a win in six of their last seven home games against visitors from Italy too, drawing the other game in that sequence? In their last seven games against Serie A teams at home, Arsenal have conceded just the one goal as well. Arsenal have won their two previous quarter-finals in Europe against Italian teams. Last season they faced AC Milan in the round of sixteen and won 5-1 on aggregate (3-1 in North London).  
Key-Facts - Arsenal v Napoli
  • Arsenal have only ever lost one home game in the Europa League
  • The Gunners have won all but one of their last seven home games against Italian sides
  • Napoli have only won 2 of their last 9 European away games
 

Napoli News and Form

Napoli have already had a taste of Premier League opposition this season. They were up against Liverpool in the group stage of the Champions League. When they went to Anfield in December they suffered a loss. That leaves them winless in seven visits to England with a D2 L5 record from that. They have lost their two previous two-legged ties against Premier League sides both ended in defeat, which was against Swansea in the 2013/14 Europa League following a defeat against Chelsea in the 2011/12 Champions League round of sixteen. Napoli finished third in their Champions League group this season, dropping down to this Europa League. They eased to a 5-1 aggregate win over Zurich in the round of 32 before taking a narrow aggregate success of 4-3 over Salzburg in the round of sixteen. Napoli won their one previous Europa League quarter-final ties, which was against Wolfsburg in 2014/15. Napoli have taken just two wins in their last nine European away games (D2 L5). They are W4 D2 L6 away from home in games in the knockout stage of the Europa League.

Arsenal v Napoli Predictions

Arsenal to win: The Gunners have been reliable on home soil and they could get the upper hand in this game with a positive display. The Gunners will recognise that they need something out of this game. Home win at 5/4 odds looks solid* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 7th, 2019 at 7:12 p.m.)

Everton News and Form

The Toffees made it back to back league wins with a comfortable victory on Sunday at West Ham. That improved their current form to W3 D1 L1 in their last five games played. At Goodison Park, they have now posted a W7 D4 L5 record for the term. Last time out there they banked a 2-0 success over Chelsea. That is, however, their only home win this season against a side in the top half of the table. In such games, Everton are W1 D2 L4 this season. Everton have averaged a1.4 goals per home game which has been a little bit disappointing from them. Less than half of this season’s league games at Goodison Park have gone over 2.5 goals. The Toffees have earned a clean sheet in 38% of home games and their defence has improved drastically since the end of February. Home and away in the top flight, Everton have taken a clean sheet in all but one of their last five. Each of their last five home wins actually in the EPL have all been recorded with a clean sheet. They will have their work cut out to keep the Gunners at bay though. Only two of their seven home wins have been by a one-goal margin. Everton have been level at half time in 10 of their 16 home games. The Toffees have scored 61% of their home goals after the half time break.

Arsenal kept their supreme home form going as they banked a 2-0 win at the Emirates over Newcastle on Monday. That is five wins in their last six games (D1) home and away in the top flight. They have big momentum behind them at the moment. That’s all important in such a tight race for a top-four finish now. Arsenal have struggled on the road, winning just five times this season (D4 L5). In their last away game, they picked up a good point against rivals Spurs. Arsenal have only managed one victory in their last eight away games (D3 L4). That lone win in that sequence was against Huddersfield. The Gunners have scored 26 goals away from home at an average of 1.86 per game. 79% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals this season. The Gunners still have not managed a clean sheet away from home this season, with more than half of their road fixtures ending up producing over 3.5 goals. Four of Arsenal’s five away wins have been by a one-goal margin only. Just twice have they been leading at half time away from home even though they have opened the scoring in 9 of their 14 away games. The Gunners have netted in each of their last nine games, home and away. They are currently the third highest scorers in the division.
