GunnersGaming by Betsson, Arsenal’s Official Betting Partner, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup match against Sunderland...
While Wednesday night’s Champions League defeat was a bitter blow to take, Arsenal must find a way to move on and start afresh on Saturday.
A second trip to the Stadium of Light within a week awaits and their task will not be made any easier by the losses of both Thierry Henry and Laurent Koscielny. Henry scored the decisive goal in the dying seconds last time out, and fellow countryman Koscielny has provided a pillar of strength in at the back. Another absentee at the back will be Per Mertesacker, who suffered an ankle injury in the late win.
Martin O’Neil will surely be looking for his side to be more adventurous than they were last time out. The FA Cup is at the stage where silverware is a real possibility for all those still involved, particularly with both Manchester sides having already exited the competition. Arsenal will be desperate to progress and they are 4/3 (2.35) to win the tie.
Both sides looking to attack should make for a great cup tie and more than 3.5 goals in the game looks great value at 21/10 (3.1). With both league games finishing 2-1, history would suggest that the safe money is on Arsenal to edge another close game 2-1 at 8/1 (8.85). But GunnersGaming tip this one to be full of goals, and you can get Arsenal to win 3-2 at 28/1 (29.0).
Alternatively, Arsenal to win by a goal looks good value, priced at 3/1 (4.15).
