GunnersGaming by Betsson, Arsenal’s Official Betting Partner, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of Saturday’s London derby against Fulham...
Saturday will see Emirates Stadium play host to its first London derby of the season as Fulham make the trip north to tackle the in-form Gunners. The Cottagers find themselves at the wrong end of a tightly-packed mid-table having been somewhat of an enigma this season.
They are the only team to have taken points off Manchester City and scored an incredible six goals past QPR, but maintaining that form over a season that started all the way back in June has proved their biggest undoing.
Last season saw Arsenal edge a closely-fought battle 2-1 at home before being held to a 2-2 draw on the final day of the campaign.
Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott both scored that day and on current form who would bet against those two repeating their feats when the teams line up on Saturday evening? Van Persie to score first is a well-fancied 5/2 (3.5) and Walcott to strike in an Arsenal win is available at an attractive 11/5 (3.2).
If the clash follows the pattern of last season’s games there seems a good chance of seeing more than 2.5 goals, available at 9/14 (1.65).
Arsène Wenger’s side are on a terrific run of form, having won eight of their last nine games in all competitions. They have also won 10 of their 12 games at Emirates Stadium this season, so it is no surprise that an Arsenal win is well backed at 7/15 (1.48).
A repeat of last season’s 2-1 win priced at 71/10 (8.15) looks good value, especially when you consider that the Gunners have played out six 2-1 wins already this season.
With Fulham sure to try and put the shackles on the unstoppable Van Persie, perhaps that could provide others with space and opportunities. Gervinho at 8/5 (2.6) and Arteta at 3/1 (4.0) will both be hoping to add to their goal tallies for the season.
