GunnersGaming by Betsson, Arsenal’s Official Betting Partner, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of Tuesday night’s Carling Cup Quarter-Final against Manchester City...
The games continue to come thick and fast for Arsenal and this Quarter -Final against Manchester City provides the perfect opportunity to erase the disappointment of Saturday’s draw with Fulham. While Arsène Wenger may traditionally be associated with giving young players their chance in the Carling Cup, the manager has reassured fans that his selection criteria is based on picking a team capable of winning.
Manchester City are sure to shuffle their expensive pack and will be certain to prove a stiff test for the Gunners’ trophy credentials. However, Roberto Mancini’s men come into the game off the back of a nervy draw with Liverpool and a damaging European defeat to Napoli.
Early pressure may well be the order of the day for the Gunners. Arsenal will also take confidence that they have lost just one of their last 58 midweek matches at Emirates Stadium and none of the last 27. Based on that evidence an Arsenal win at 21/10 (3.1) looks great value.
It is the first meeting of the two sides this season and Arsenal will be out to put down a marker ahead of the upcoming Premier League clash. A 2-1 win available at a tempting 33/4 (9.25) would certainly send Arsenal fans home happy in a game that could also see the return of ex-Gunner Samir Nasri, who is priced at 11/4 (3.75) to mark his return to Emirates Stadium with a goal.
Arsenal fans will be hoping to see their side show plenty of attacking intent and Gervinho, Marouane Chamakh, Ju Young Park and Andrey Arshavin will all be keen to demonstrate their ability to find the net. Park and Arshavin were the stars of the last round and are priced at 12/5 (3.4) and 3/1 (4.0) respectively to get on the score sheet again.
