GunnersGaming by Betsson, Arsenal’s Official Betting Partner, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of Saturday’s massive clash with Chelsea...
Saturday sees Arsenal make the short trip across London to take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. They do so with ever-growing confidence after a run of seven wins in their last eight games, a run which has seen them begin to get their season back on track.
The new summer signings have started to settle in, Thomas Vermaelen has returned from injury to help shore up the defence and Robin van Persie can’t stop scoring. Nobody is underestimating the task of leaving Stamford Bridge with a positive result but, unlike a few weeks ago, there is now a belief that it is at least possible. Do you share that belief? Why not back the Gunners to win, available at 9/2 (5.5)?
Chelsea on the other hand come into the game having lost in last weekend’s west London derby against QPR, playing a draining extra-time Carling Cup tie against Everton and picking up three red cards in the process. Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas will certainly be hoping that he can galvanise his side and get a positive reaction to what has been a difficult week. The odds of either team picking up another red card in this game are 3/1 (4.25).
Arsenal’s last two visits to Stamford Bridge have both ended in 2-0 losses - here’s hoping this one will be a case of third time lucky. They need only look to their 2-1 win in 2008 for inspiration, where current captain Van Persie’s brace sealed all three points. If you fancy the skipper to continue his rich vein of form he is available at 12/5 (3.4) to score or 7/1 (8.0) to score first.
Fancy the Gunners to win by one goal? Why not back them at 6/1 (7.15)? Or how about adding to their four 2-1 wins already this season with another priced at 14/1(14.50)?
