North London Derby 18th November 2017 odds & prediction

Tottenham
The first North London derby of the Premier League 2017/18 season kicks off on the weekend following the recent international break. This is a huge date on the calendar and for both of these, there is great importance riding on the game. Spurs hold a four point lead over their rivals in the league standings as they kick off in third place. So a massive gap could be opened up if the Lilywhites can deliver a win out on the road against their rivals. Arsenal badly need the three points to close the gap on the Lilywhites. But will Arsenal be able to get it done? They have failed to win any of their last three home Premier League games against Spurs, each of the games in that sequence having ended in a 1-1 draw. The 1-1 correct score at Betfair returns a price of 13/2. It’s a decent trend worth considering because there probably won't be too much to chose between the two sides on the day. This is one of the top English fixtures and there’s no love lost between these.

Arsenal v Tottenham Betting Odds

Arsenal 13/10, Tottenham 15/8, Draw 5/2 Last season Spurs collected four points from the two league meetings and they have put together an unbeaten stretch of six matches against Arsenal in Premier League contests. So they are up in the head to head at the moment and will be full of confidence with five wins in their last six league games and they took that epic home win over Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League as well recently. They have also been strong out on the road. After winning their opening four away games this season in the Premier League, Spurs slipped to only their first league away defeat of the season in a 1-0 loss against Manchester United in their most recent league away game. But whenever Spurs go, they will get chances and most of that will be for one man, Harry Kane. He should be fit and fresh after skipping the international break and Kane is trading as the 10/3 bet365 first goalscorer favourite and will naturally have plenty of backing. Kane is on a five match Premier League scoring streak against Arsenal and netted a penalty in both games against them last season. He will probably terrorise the Arsenal defence again. Arsenal’s defence has been pretty woeful out on the road in the Premier League this season, but they have, by and large, held firm at home at least. The Gunners have won all five of their home games at the Emirates this season and have collected three clean sheets as well. But of their big games against fellow top six sides this season, they have already faltered. Arsenal only managed a 0-0 draw against Chelsea, while they were smashed 4-0 by Liverpool and beaten 3-1 at Manchester City as well just before the international break. So that has once again raised questions about their ability to keep pace with the better sides in the league. They have a lot to prove do the Gunners but will they be able to snap that winless league home form that they are on against the Lilywhites? A home loss in this one would be a devastating blow for them as that could leave them a long way back of the top four after the weekend of action.

Arsenal v Tottenham Predictions & Betting Odds – 18th November 2017

Arsenal
Arsenal v Tottenham Betting Preview - Premier League 18th November 12.30pm A heated North London derby rings in the return of the Premier League action following the international break. Arsene Wenger will be hoping that his side can find a response to a loss at Man City just before the break. Tottenham had a recent wobble out on the road, losing at Old Trafford against Manchester United, but they are sitting in third place going into this game with a four point cushion over the Gunners. Extending that would really keep Arsenal down. Can the Lilywhites deliver?

Arsenal v Tottenham Betting Tips

The Gunners will be looking to their strong home form this season the Premier League for some inspiration to go out and win this one. They have won all five of their league games on home soil this season and three of their last four victories there have come with a clean sheet too. It's a stark contrast to the horror show of a season that they have been having out on the road.

Arsenal vs Tottenham 2017 Infographic

Arsenal to win to nil at bet365 in this fixture is a big 4/1 price because they will naturally get threatened heavily by a classy Tottenham side. Arsenal lost 3-1 at the Etihad against Manchester City just before the international break, but they competed well in the game and luck was really against them in it. There has been a lack of goals recently between these two and six of the last eight league meetings have all produced less than three goals. So under 2.5 goals at bet365 is an option at 13/10.

Last Six Premier League Head to Head

Tottenham 2 - 0 Arsenal Arsenal 1 - 1 Tottenham Tottenham 2 - 2 Arsenal Arsenal 1 - 1 Tottenham Tottenham 2 - 1 Arsenal Arsenal 1 - 1 Tottenham Alexandre Lacazette has six goals to his name in the league this season, and he is an 11/8 bet365 anytime goalscorer for this game. Bizarrely he was only on the bench for the trip to Manchester City which was a tough call to understand. The last three Premier League games between these at the Emirates have all ended in a 1-1 draw and therefore the 1-1 correct score in the bet365 market is a price of 13/2 with appeal. The Gunners have been winning at half time in three of their five home wins this season and 60% of their games at the Emirates have gone over 2.5 goals. Arsenal have only actually conceded the one first half goal on home soil this season in the top flight. It may be an even battle through the early stages of the matches. Arsenal have struggled for winning form against Spurs recently though having claimed three wins only in their last ten Premier League matches against Spurs now, having posted a W3 D4 L3 record against the Lilywhites. The Gunners through are undefeated in their last six league home games against Tottenham.

Current League Form (most recent last)

Arsenal WWLWWL Tottenham WWWWLW Tottenham would open up a seven point gap over the Gunners with a win in this one and how they would enjoy that. There has been another strong season delivered by the Lilywhites who have a W7 D2 L2 record on the board overall and away from Wembley they have gone W4 D1. After winning their opening four away games of the season, the Lilywhites got their first taste of defeat on the road when they slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford against Manchester United in their last away game. That is the only away game in which they have failed to score this season and despite that misfire, they are still averaging 2.4 goals per game away from home. Spurs have only conceded three goals out on the road this season and they are 10/3 at bet365 to collect a clean sheet in this North London derby. It’s a little unlikely though  as they have just one clean sheet in their last sixteen league games against the Gunners. So Harry Kane passed up international duty with England on this break because of fitness, before that, Mauricio Pochettino said that Kane would be ready to go for this. So the club are clearly protecting their prize asset and he is the 10/3 bet365 first goalscorer favourite for the match and he already has eight league goals for the season which is more than Arsenal have managed as a club away from home in the top flight this season. Kane has scored in each of his last five league games against Arsenal as well. Tottenham have not been trailing at half time in any away game this season in the league and 60% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. They have not conceded a first half goal so far this season on the road, and a 0-0 half time bet at bet365 is a decent 12/5 poke, while a straight out half time draw is at 11/8.

Arsenal v Tottenham Betting Odds

Arsenal 13/10, Tottenham 15/8, Draw 5/2

Arsenal v Tottenham Predictions

Draw: Freshly back from international duty and it may take some time for these two sides to settle down again. Arsenal have been solid enough on home soil to suggest that they can hold their own in this big derby match. Tottenham would be happy enough avoiding defeat at the Emirates, so settle for the draw.

Betway Premier League Betting Without Manchester City

Betway
Manchester City’s odds of winning the Premier League are being cut across the board at bookmakers. The Citizens drove forward to another league win on the weekend in a 3-1 home victory over Arsenal. That took them to 31 points from eleven games this season and with an eight point lead at the top over rivals Manchester United. It has been stunning form from Pep Guardiola’s men who have averaged over three goals per game for the season. The only points that Man City have dropped this season in the league were in an early-season draw against Everton, but since then it has been winning all the way in the top flight and they are starting to look as if they can’t be touched. Already that’s a lot of ground for someone to make up on them. It hasn’t just been on the domestic front that City have impressed as well, they have qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League with games to spare and look a serious threat there as well, while they are trading as the outright favourites to win the EFL Cup at the quarter finals stage as well. They are on a club record of 15 straight wins in all compeitions. Manchester City are trading at 1/6 with betway to win the Premier League this season so there is not much meat left on the bone. However, betway are running a Premier League Betting Without Manchester City market which is going to have far more appeal to punters as it offers a lot of value this season with the march forward and power that the Citizens are laying down. So if the Champions-elect do go and win the league as they are looking as if they are going to do, then there is a lot of value to pick up in deciding who is going to finish runner up to the Citizens. Note that of course, none of this counts if Manchester City doesn't win the league. Manchester United and Tottenham are running as 15/8 joint-favourites in the betway Premier League Without Manchester City betting market. The two of them are sat jointly on 23 points after eleven games but once again it looks as if it is going to be a congested battle for the remaining top four spots. You would expect Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal to at least have some kind of say in the fight. But of them all, over the last couple of seasons, it is Tottenham have been the most consistent of them all. Manchester United have shown some signs of difficulties, largely borne of negativity, away from home already this season. After a bright start to the season, it looks as if Jose Mourinho has started to pull back on the adventure and attacking threat to go back into his shell. Liverpool’s season looks as if it could still be blighted by their defence in the long run while Arsenal have already failed to win three games against fellow top six sides already this season so punters will have hesitations about the north London outfit. The Reds are out at 7/1 in the betway Premier League Without Manchester City market with the Gunners even longer priced at 8/1. Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea, who sunk Manchester United 1-0 at Stamford Bride in early November to give themselves a boost, are a 3/1 shot to come home second to Manchester City. The Blues have had some misfires this season though already and have big questions about the depth of their squad this season, especially in taking on the Champions League as well.

Premier League Betting Without Manchester City Market

Manchester United 15/8, Tottenham 15/8, Chelsea 3/1, Liverpool 7/1, Arsenal 8/1, Leicester 100/1, Burnley 125/1, 200/1 bar On top of that the betway Cash Out feature is available on the market as well. So you can check the current value of your bet and make a decision whether or not to Cash Out at any point of the season. The Green Cash Out icon is sat right at the top of the market, so you can’t miss it.

Manchester City v Arsenal Prediction & Betting Tips – 5th November 2017

Manchester City
Manchester City v Arsenal Premier League, 5th November 2.15pm That is seven wins on the bounce now for the Citizens in the top flight and they don’t appear to be showing any signs of stopping. This is a big home game for them and that won’t stop them going as favourites as they have already proven themselves in big games against Liverpool and Chelsea this season. Arsenal have produced some pretty ropey away form this season in the top flight with just the one win from their five road games. Manchester City are 1/2 at Betfair to take the win, with the draw at 10/3 and Arsenal are 5/1. Manchester City v Arsenal 2017 infographics

Manchester City v Arsenal Betting Tips

Hopefully, this is the wide open, exciting game that it could be. Premier League champions elect Manchester City are on an eight match winning sequence in the top flight at the moment after collecting a win out at West Brom last weekend. They impressed again in midweek by putting four goals past Napoli away from home in the Champions League. They just can’t stop scoring and in the Premier League the Citizens are averaging 3.5 goals per game this season and at the Etihad, that is an average of 4.2 goals per game. It’s been stunning stuff from Pep Guardiola’s men who have dropped just two points in their ten games so far. City have only shipped three home goals this season and Man City to win to nil at Betfair returns a price of 2/1. As a benchmark, they did stuff Liverpool 5-0 earlier in the season.

Last Six Premier League Head to Head

Arsenal 2 - 2 Manchester City Manchester City 2 - 1 Arsenal Manchester City 2 - 2 Arsenal Arsenal 2 - 1 Manchester City Manchester City 0 - 2 Arsenal Arsenal 2 - 2 Manchester City Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero are joint top scorers for Man City with seven goals each and they are 11/4 and 11/2 respectively in the Betfair first goalscorer market. There’s Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane both on six goals and they are 8/15 and 11/8 respectively in the anytime goalscorer market. After his goal in Naples in midweek, Sergio Aguero is now the top scorer in the club’s history. In the Betfair correct score market, a Manchester 2-0 option is in at 10/1 with only a 2-1 victory for the Citizens trading at a shorter price of 17/2. You just don't know what levels City are going to get to on a given day. City have scored the opening goal in eight of their ten games this season in the league and at home, they have scored 67% of their goals in the second half of matches and have scored 10 unanswered goals in the final half hour of games at the Etihad.

Current League Form (most recent last)

Manchester City WWWWWW Arsenal DWWLWW How will Arsenal handle the Citizens? The Gunners have not had a great season away from home as it is as they have won just one of their five road games this season in the top flight, losing three of those. Defensively they have shipped in each of their last three games as well and that will be a bit of a concern. Arsenal have scored in just two of their five away games this season and both teams not to score at Betfair picks up a price of 6/4. In the anytime goalscorer market, Alexandre Lacazette is a 5/4 option for them with Olivier Giroud at 13/8. Lacazette is their top scorer in the league this season with a five goal haul. Arsenal picked up just one point in their two league games against City last season. Arsenal have conceded an average of 1.8 goals per game away from home this season which isn't good at all and their defence will face the most potent attack in the country on the weekend. Will it be able to stand up to the test? You have a price of 5/6 on over 3.5 goals for the game. Arsenal are four points worse off than they were at this stage last season and they have not scored a goal in the opening half hour of any away game this season in the English top flight. They are actually overall, running with the joint-third best attack in the Premier League this season, but defensively they have the likes of Newcastle, West Brom, Swansea and Brighton better off than they are. This is a massive test for the Gunners who have already fallen heavily at Anfield against Liverpool this season and drawn at Chelsea.

Who will win - Manchester City v Arsenal Predictions

Man City to win: There should be goals in this one and you would have to back the Citizens to net more than the Gunners. Arsenal haven’t been there defensively out on the road this season and City have the quality, depth and confidence to bank another good three points.

Arsenal v Red Star Belgrade Predictions & Betting Odds – 2nd November 2017

Europa League Betting
Arsenal v Red Star Belgrade Betting Preview - UEFA Europa League 2nd November 7.45pm The Gunners collected a 1-0 win in Belgrade a couple of weeks ago leaving them with a nice five point cushion at the top of Group H in the Europa League. It’s been a cruise for them so far and with their good home form should complete the job. They can actually win the group on Thursday night as long as BATE don’t take a win over Cologne. That should be incentive enough for the Gunners to put in a good shift because they can then take things easy for the rest of the group stage.

Arsenal v Red Star Belgrade Betting Tips

Arsenal have collected three wins from three so far in their Europa League group stage campaign and they are one step away from reaching the next round. All that they need to do is just collect a draw in this one and they will be in the next round. There was a tight game between them in the first meeting with Red Star Belgrade a couple of weeks ago until Olivier Giroud popped up five minutes from time to split them with a stunning winner to give Arsenal a 1-0 victory. In the William Hill correct score market an Arsenal 2-0 result is the shortest priced option at 13/2 back at the Emirates. The only other meetings between these two was in the 1978/79 UEFA Cup third round with the Serbians winning 2-1 on aggregate over the tie following a 1-1 draw at Highbury. The Serbians will be turning up with incentive as they are level on four points with BATE behind Arsenal. Olivier Giroud is the William Hill first goalscorer favourite at 3/1 with the game and the Gunners now have not suffered a defeat (over 90 minutes) in UEFA Cup or UEFA Europa League games (W7 D1) since a 2-1 loss at Deportivo La Coruña in March 2000. Their only previous encounter with a Serbian side before this season’s games against Red Star was in the 2010/11 Champions League group stage when they took 3-1 wins over Partizan. The Gunners just have to get the win and they don’t need to go and bust a gut really and because of that, it could be worth looking under 2.5 goals for a price of 6/4 with William Hill. Arsenal can be backed at a price of 11/8 to blank the Serbians and pick up a win to nil in this second meeting with them. Crvena zvezda have a fairly extensive and average history against English sides in European competition before. From their 17 previous encounters with English opposition, they are holding a W6 D5 L6 record. However, from their eight previous trips to England, they have won just one of them, back in 1973 when they took a win at Anfield against Liverpool. They have taken two wins away from home in Europe already this season beating Sparta Praha in the third qualifying round and then taking a good win at Cologne on match day two of the group stage. Their other three European away fixtures this term have yielded two draws and one defeat (3-2 at Krasnodar in the play-offs). You have a price of 3/4 on both teams to score at William Hill just for the visitors to show up and at least get a consolation on the board.

Arsenal v Red Star Belgrade Betting Odds

Arsenal 1/3, Draw 4/1, Crvena Zvezda 8/1

Arsenal v Red Star Belgrade Predictions

Arsenal to win: Look or the Gunners to pull off a repeat victory to nil against Red Star. Arsenal will have an easier time on home soil against the Belgrade outfit and they are carrying good enough home form to suggest that they can seal the three points.

Arsenal v Swansea Predictions & Betting Odds – 28th October 2017

Arsenal
Arsenal v Swansea Betting Preview - Premier League 28th October 3.00pm It has been four wins from four for Arsenal on home soil in the Premier League this season and that should be extended in this one. The Gunners have shown little sign of having any issues in putting up a good home record this season and they should be able to handle the ailing Swans. Swansea have only claimed the one away win all season and have lost three of their last four games in the top flight. It’s unlikely that they will pose Arsenal too much of a threat in this one.

Arsenal v Swansea Betting Tips

Arsenal have been in great shape on home soil in the Premier League this season which suggests that they are going to be able to hold their own again on the weekend for the visit of Swansea's. Arsenal have won all of their home games in the top flight this season, scoring eleven in their four games. They have collected a clean sheet in each of their last three home fixtures in the top flight and have four in their last six home and away. Arsenal to win to nil at Betfair returns a price of 20/21, therefore, isn’t a bad option. They will want to ensure that they take maximum points in this one as they have two tough games coming afterwards against Manchester City and then Tottenham. Arsenal won both games against the Swans last season in the top flight, putting a total of seven goals on the board and won this corresponding fixture 3-2.

Last Six Premier League Head to Head

Swansea 0 - 4 Arsenal Arsenal 3 - 2 Swansea Arsenal 1 - 2 Swansea Swansea 0 - 3 Arsenal Arsenal 0 - 1 Swansea Swansea 2 - 1 Arsenal Arsenal have banked 2-0 scorelines in their last two home games this season and in the Betfair correct score market, an Arsenal 2-0 returns a price of 13/2. Despite being firm favourites for this match, looking back the Gunners have not had things all their own way in recent matches with Swansea in the top flight as they have gone W4 D1 L3 in their last eight top flight meetings against them. Last season’s home win over the Welsh club saw them snap a four match winless streak (D1 L3) at home against Swansea in the Premier League. Alexandre Lacazette is the 2/1 Betfair first goalscorer favourite, with Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez at around the 8/11 mark in the anytime goalscorer market. Arsenal have not been behind at half time in any home fixture this season and with them averaging 2.75 goals per game at the Emirates, they look a solid bet to take this one.

Current League Form (most recent last)

Arsenal WDWWLW Swansea LDLLWL Swansea took a home hit last weekend as they fell 1-2 against Leicester, who were out of form beneath the Swans in the table when they met. It means that Swansea have now lost three of their last four games in the top flight, the only bright spark being a 2-0 home win over Huddersfield. They actually have not been terrible away from home in the top flight this season with a W1 D2 L1 record away from home, their big moment in playing out a great 0-0 draw against Spurs. Swansea have only managed the six league goals in nine games and only Crystal Palace have managed fewer in the top flight this term and it’s hard to see them mounting a big challenge in this one. Both teams not to score at Betfair is a price of 3/4. Top scorer for the Swans in the league this season is Tammy Abraham who has four of their six league goals this season and the youngster is a price of 15/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. Swansea’s form home and away so far this term is W2 D2 L5 and they go into the weekend with eight points, which is level with 18th-placed Everton. So plenty of work that they still need to do, but as a big positive for them, no-one in the bottom half of the table has conceded fewer goals than they have this season. Under 2.5 goals at Betfair is a price of 17/10 and there is a bit of appeal on under 3.5 for a price of 4/6. The Swans showed on their trip to Spurs that they know how to produce the defensive goods, but they just don't have too much to put together offensively.

Arsenal v Swansea Betting Odds

Arsenal 1/5, Draw 11/2, Swansea 12/1

Arsenal v Swansea Predictions

Arsenal to win: The Gunners going out and collecting a win to nil in this fixture on Saturday is probably going to be a good banker for most punters. Swansea have struggled for goals away from home and Arsenal have looked strong enough on home soil to win to nil.

Arsenal v Norwich EFL Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 24th October 2017

Arsenal
Arsenal v Norwich Betting Preview - EFL Cup 24th October 7.45pm Arsenal will probably be targeting the EFL Cup as a genuine piece of silverware for themselves this season. They seem to be efficient enough on home soil to be able to back a place in the quarter finals, but they will get a test against Championship side Norwich who have defensively been rock solid lately. Will the Canaries be able to frustrate the Gunners at the Emirates?

Arsenal v Norwich EFL Cup Betting Tips

This should be a manageable home fixture for Arsenal in the EFL Cup in midweek. They genuinely need to make a run at the silverware because getting any from anywhere else than the domestic cups looks a tough thing. Arsenal are on a six match winning streak at home and during that run of matches, they have only conceded the one goal. Under 2.5 goals at Bet Victor for a price of 12/5 is worth a flutter considering that they are taking on a Norwich side who are in excellent defensive form. The Gunners beat Doncaster 1-0 in the last round at the Emirates with the likes of Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott starting for them. They will be strong enough for this one and Giroud is a good 3/1 first goalscorer at Bet Victor to consider. Arsenal claimed 1-0 victory over Norwich the last time they hosted them and an Arsenal 1-0 correct score at Bet Victor fetches a price of 11/1 with the 2-0 at 8/1. Norwich are a very good defensive side, but lack scoring power and Arsenal to win to nil is a great 6/4 option. So it has been good form recently from Norwich in the second tier and on the weekend they took a 1-0 win at Ipswich in the East Anglian derby. Daniel Farke has them really well organised and they are unbeaten in nine games across all competitions now and they have picked up a total of six clean sheets in those nine games, conceding just three goals in total. So it’s great defensive stuff from them and they are carrying away form as well. They have won each of their last five road games in all competitions, with three clean sheets. So far in the EFL Cup, this season Norwich have gotten past Swindon, Charlton and Brentford, scoring at least three goals in each of those games. However, the Canaries have only scored more than one goal in a match, twice in their last nine games. They have scored only six goals in their last seven Championship fixtures and that lack of scoring power may hurt them here. Still, they could make life difficult for the Gunners in the early stages and a Draw/Arsenal half time/full time bet at Bet Victor is a good 3/1 punt.

Arsenal v Norwich EFL Cup Betting Odds

Arsenal 1/3, Draw 5/1, Norwich 8/1

Arsenal v Norwich EFL Cup Predictions

Arsenal to win: Norwich don’t have the firepower in them to really do any damage to Arsenal and therefore the home side should be collecting the win. Norwich are terrific at the back though so look under 2.5 goals with a home win.

Everton v Arsenal Predictions & Betting Odds – 22nd October 2017

Everton
Everton v Arsenal Betting Preview - Premier League 22nd October 1.30pm A big game for both of these on Sunday because both are in need of three points. Arsenal have to shake off a defeat at Watford last weekend and get themselves going again. That was their third defeat of the season though and they aren’t carrying away form. Everton have just been full of disappointments this term but it would be a big way to get themselves going if they could collect three home points against the Gunners. With both in need of a win, it should be an intense afternoon at Goodison Park.

Everton v Arsenal Betting Tips

It has not been good enough from Everton this season and there are no two ways about that. They have gone W2 D2 L4 for the season and half of those losses have occurred at Goodison Park having gone down understandably against Spurs and less so against Burnley. They needed an 89th minute penalty from Wayne Rooney last weekend to earn a 1-1 draw at Huddersfield and that just about sums things up for the Toffees at the moment. They are offering very little cut and thrust going forward and aren’t solid at the back. There is huge pressure on boss Ronald Koeman and more so now probably after Leicester sacked Craig Shakespeare. Everton may get equally desperate to shake things up as they have picked up four defeats in their last six league games. Everton have collected two one-goal margin wins at home this season though, having beaten Stoke and Bournemouth. But they have had notable defeats Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester United all with the Toffees failing to score.

Last Six Premier League Head to Head

Arsenal 3 - 1 Everton Everton 2 - 1 Arsenal Everton 0 - 2 Arsenal Arsenal 2 - 1 Everton Arsenal 2 - 0 Everton Everton 2 - 2 Arsenal In the Paddy Power anytime goalscorer market, Wayne Rooney is an 11/5 option from them with Oumar Niasse at 13/5. Rooney will probably edge the favouritism there just because of what he can do from set pieces. Everton have only netted the three goals in four Premier League games at Goodison Park this term and they have been ahead at the break in only one of those four games. They are seven points worse off than they were at this stage last season, having scored less than half the amount that they had done at this stage and have conceded more than twice as many goals as well. Over 2.5 goals at Paddy Power for a price of 4/5 for this one and that happened in both games between the two clubs last season. Everton need to find their feet but this is a tough game for them in which to do so.

Current League Form (most recent last)

Everton LLLWLD Arsenal LWDWWL Arsenal are up in sixth, but if they slip up again out on the road on the weekend, then Everton would move to within just two points of the Gunners. There's not been too much on offer from Arsenal this season on the road, and while they may be feeling aggrieved in a loss at Watford last weekend over a controversial penalty that Watford were awarded, Arsenal didn’t have enough in them to win the game. So that is three defeats in four Premier League away games this season and there was a 0-0 draw in their other game in that sequence at Chelsea. Per Mertesacker's goal against Watford, last weekend was their first away goal of the new term as well. So the Wenger-boys are are currently winless away from home in this season's top flight so that suggests that this could be a fairly even battle at Goodison Park. Olivier Giroud is an 11/10 anytime goalscorer option for the Gunners in this one with Alexandre Lacazette at 5/6 with Alexis Sanchez at 6/5. The Gunners hold a W4 D1 L3 record for the season, but they have earned a clean sheet in all but one of their last five Premier League games. Arsenal to win to nil at Paddy Power isn’t exactly a huge stretch at a price of 13/5 considering how poor Everton have been going forward this season. Last season in the Premier League there was a home win for each of them, but Arsenal are up in the recent head to head. The Gunners have collected a good W4 D1 L1 record in their last six against Everton in the top flight. With that having been said though, the Londoners have only won one of their last five visits to Goodison Park though in a W1 D2 L2 record there.

Everton v Arsenal Betting Odds

Arsenal even money, Draw 13/5, Everton 11/4

Everton v Arsenal Predictions

Arsenal to win: The draw isn’t without its appeal but even though Arsenal have no form out on her head this season there is an opportunity for them here to exploit a disjointed Everton side at Goodison Park. The Gunners are value to go out and collect the three points as they have a lot more to offer going forward than the Toffees do.

Red Star Belgrade v Arsenal Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th October 2017

Arsenal
Red Star Belgrade v Arsenal Betting Preview - UEFA Europa League 19th October 6.00pm The Gunners face a trip to Serbia on Match Day Three of the Europa League. Arsenal have opened with back to back group stage wins so far in the group and will be expected to remain unbeaten at least. Interestingly, before any of the current Arsenal players were even born, back in 1978/79 UEFA Cup third round Red Star took an aggregate win over Arsenal. But a win this one for the Premier League side would leave them a comfortable five points clear at the top of the pile.

Red Star Belgrade v Arsenal Betting Tips

There is a big incentive for Red Star Belgrade here as they could take over at the top of Group H if they could find a way to beat Arsenal at home on Thursday night. The Serbians have picked up four points from their opening two games after a draw with BATE and then a great three points out at Cologne. Arsenal and Red Star have met before, their previous meeting coming in the 1978/79 UEFA Cup third round and Belgrade won 1-0 on home soil before playing out a 1-1 drawback in London. Red Star Belgrade record in 16 matches against English sides is W6 D5 L5. They have played five games at home in Europe already this season and they have picked up a W4 D1 record from that (including qualifying). They are one of three teams to have made it all the way from the first qualifying round to the group stage. This is their first appearance in the group since 2007/08 when they lost all four of their matches. Under 2.5 goals at bet365 returns a price of even money, although Arsenal’s defence can’t be trusted too much at the moment. Arsenal’s Premier League campaign took another hit on the weekend as they lost 2-1 at Watford. But still, from seven previous games in the UEFA Cup, the Gunners have never lost over 90 minutes with a W6 D1 record (UEFA Cup). Aside from those aforementioned games against Red Star Belgrade, Arsenal’s only other experience against Serbian opponents was 3-1 victories over Partizan in the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League group stage. In the bet365 correct score market for this one, an Arsenal 1-0 returns a price of 7/1 and only the 1-1 draw is shorter than that at 6/1. Arsenal don't really have to go out and win this game. They would stay top of course with a draw and then they could throw out a win back at home against them and still be well in control of the group. So they can take it easy in this one after having come from behind to beat Cologne at the Emirates on match day one, before taking a 4-2 win out at BATE. They are not rock solid at the back by any stretch of the imagination though and both teams to score at bet365 is a 4/6 punt for this one. Away from home in all competitions, this season Arsenal have produced just a W1 D1 L3 record and they have failed to score in three of those. You have a price of 4/6 at bet365 on both teams to score in this one.

Red Star Belgrade v Arsenal Predictions

Draw: With Arsenal going along comfortably, they really could just go out and be happy with a draw in this one. They could then beat Red Star back on home soil and the group would be pretty much won by the Premier League side. With Belgrade doing alright on home soil so far this season, look for a draw. This is their debut UEFA Europa League campaign.

Watford v Arsenal Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th October 2017

Watford
Watford v Arsenal Betting Preview - Premier League 14th October 5.30pm This should be a good contest at Vicarage Road between Watford and Arsenal. Punters may see a little value in the home side getting something out of this fixture as they have done well this season on the whole under Marco Silva. Arsenal though have improved over their recent fixtures having dropped only the two league points in their last four games played. But the Gunners have remained winless out on the road this season and looking at the odds, the Hornets may have been a little bit underestimated for this Saturday evening clash.

Watford v Arsenal Betting Tips

So Watford are looking for their first home win of the season in the top flight after having gone D2 L1 so far. They will want to quickly forget their last home game though when they lost 6-0 against Manchester City. That was just one of those freak results which turn up now and again and they can get over it. In their other six league games, this season the Hornets have gone W3 D3 so they are doing well. They have scored at least two goals netted in five of their seven league games too so they do carry a threat. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 should have some appeal at a price of 4/7 for this fixture even though the Hornets have failed to find the back of the net in their last two home games. Overall Marco Silva’s men are still averaging 1.5 goals per game this season. Last Six Premier League Head to Head Arsenal 1 - 2 Watford Watford 1 - 3 Arsenal Arsenal 4 - 0 Watford Watford 0 - 3 Arsenal Watford 1- 2 Arsenal Arsenal 3 - 0 Watford Watford should get chances against an Arsenal defence that hasn’t looked rock solid this season. Joint top scorers for Watford so far this season are Abdoulaye Doucoure and Richarlison with three goals each and Brazilian Richarlison has been one of their stand out players of the season. Watford have scored first in four of their seven games this season and the Hornets are currently four points better off than they were after seven games last season. So there has been a marked improvement for them this season. Both teams to score at bet365 carries a price of 8/13 and that happened in both games between them last season where they traded away wins. Watford have won just one of their previous eight Premier League games against Arsenal (L7). Current League Form (most recent last) Watford WDWLWD Arsenal LLWDWW The Gunners have a pretty good record then against Watford in the top flight and they have scored at least three goals in five of their eight previous Premier League games against Watford. Alexandre Lacazette is the 20/21 bet365 anytime goalscorer favourite for this one with Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez at 11/10. The Gunners have collected ten points from the last twelve available in the top flight and have a four-match clean sheet streak going on. However, that needs to be put into context, because the three wins in that sequence were at home against sides currently 10th or lower in the league Bournemouth, West Brom and Brighton). This should be a bigger test for them. Arsenal have had a poor season away from home so far, having picked up just the one point in a draw at Chelsea in their last away game. The Gunners are still seeking their first away goal of the season as well as their first road victory.

Watford v Arsenal Predictions

Watford to win: Arsenal haven’t scored an away goal yet this season and their recent upturn in form has come at home against sides struggling for form.
