The Gunners are in a hot streak of form in the Premier League as they are on a six-match winning streak. It’s been a fantastic form from them and they will be favourites on home soil as they take on a Leicester side who have been struggling defensively. That having been said the Foxes have been scoring well. Read our Arsenal v Leicester betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:52 p.m.)
The Gunners have proven to be the form team of the Premier League over the last half a dozen games. That’s because they have won six from six. So they are moving along very nicely and the goals are flowing from them well. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last seven games played. Just before the international break, they secured a big 5-1 win out at Fulham. So more likely than not they will get their chances in this one and over 2.5 goals is a solid place to start at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). Five of their eight league games have ended that way.
Arsenal have won each of their last three home games by a two-goal margin which is a trend to consider. You can back them at 7/2 to win by that margin in this fixture* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). There is another trend running with them as well and that is that they have been drawing at half time and winning at full time in each of their last six games. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang was only no the bench against Fulham because of fitness but is likely to get back to the starting line up. There are doubts over Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey.
Leicester are hit and miss most of the time and they have posted a W4 L4 record so far. They suffered a 2-1 home loss against Everton just before the international break. Their away form is mixed at W2 L2 so it’s hard to get a read on them. A clear positive is that they have been scoring well and have netted in all of their games played this season. So both teams to score at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm) makes decent sense to have a look at. Jamie Vardy has two goals in his last three games for the Foxes and is pretty consistent and reliable as a goalscorer option.
The Foxes have produced seven goals away from home this season, three of their four games ending over 2.5 goals. They have two clean sheets under their belt this season, one of them on the road. There has been a consistent trend with them having scored at least two goals in each of their last three away games. 86% of their away goals have happened in the second half of matches. The Foxes will be missing Wes Morgan through suspension while Demarai Gray and Matty James will also be out on the sidelines.
There were great games between the two last season with eleven goals across the two meetings, which produced a home win. The Gunners took a 4-3 success over the Foxes at the Emirates and that leaves them on a seven-match winning streak on home soil against them. Do Leicester have not avoided a defeat at Leicester in the Premier League. Arsenal have won six of the last seven Premier League meetings home and away games the Foxes (D1).
This could be a good competitive open game, but we have to back Arsenal who have been playing some really positive stuff. The defence of Leicester is still just a bit unreliable to be able to hold out. Home win & both teams to score.

A London derby for these two on the weekend and Fulham could badly use a win out of the clash. They start the weekend just above the drop zone with only the one win on the board so far. In contrast, Arsenal are steaming along on a big five-match winning streak and will be expected once again to deliver maxim points. Read our Fulham v Arsenal betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 3rd, 2018 at 9:14 p.m.)
The Cottagers are still trying to adjust to life in the top flight and they aren’t having a great time of it. They have just a W1 D2 L4 record on the board this season and are winless in four now (D2 L2). Three of their four league defeats for the season have been away from home, and they have collected four points from their last two home homes, beating Burnley and drawing with Watford.
Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored three of their five home games this season. So if you fancy Fulham to get on the board, he makes the most sense to back at 7/4 odds* (betting odds taken from October 4th, 2018 at 4:53 pm) in the anytime goalscorer market.
The Cottagers have conceded five goals at home this season in their three matches and four of those have come in the first half of matches. They have been behind at halftime in two of their three home games which obviously is a problem.
With Arsenal expected to turn up and win at Craven Cottage then an Arsenal/Arsenal half-time/full-time bet is at 8/5 odds* (betting odds taken from October 4th, 2018 at 4:53 pm) to consider in Fulham v Arsenal betting tips. The Cottagers have yet to pick up a clean sheet this season and have been picked off far too easily. Heading into the weekend they have the joint-worst defensive record in the top flight.
The Gunners are in a nice bit of form with a five-match winning streak going on the board. Their hot scoring form has continued because they have netted at least two goals in each of their last six league fixtures. That’s a great return and their last two have been won by a 2-0 scoreline.
But because they don’t have a clean sheet on their travels yet then an Arsenal 2-1 correct score option at 8/1 has big appeal* (betting odds taken from October 4th, 2018 at 4:53 pm) in Fulham v Arsenal betting tips.
Therefore both teams to score is at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken from October 4th, 2018 at 4:53 pm) for the fixture. The Gunners are W2 L1 this term, their defeat happening out at Chelsea in their first road game of the season. They have scored a total of seven goals in their three road games so far this term which has been great.
All of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals so there is a trend there. It has not quite happened for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang yet this season in front of goal but they are taking on a leaky defence and he is worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market.
Arsenal took back to back wins over Fulham the last time they were together in the Premier League. That was back in the 2013/14 season. The Gunners are unbeaten in four against the Cottagers in the top flight (W3 D1) and have lost just one of their last eleven. Both teams have scored in all but one of the last eight.
Given how loose Fulham have been at the back, there really doesn’t look to be an option other than backing Arsenal to win to nil. They have been scoring frequently enough to put the Cottagers to bed.

The Gunners are on a nice run of form with four straight league wins under their belt. So there have been plenty of positives from Arsenal then and they will be keen to keep that momentum going. Watford will be looking to regain some momentum after having picked up just one point in their last two games. Read our Arsenal v Watford betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2018 at 11:52 p.m.)
The Gunners have definitely started to show signs of improvement under Unai Emery. They battled their way to a 2-0 home win over Everton last weekend to make it fours wins on the bounce in the top flight. That’s a really good return from them and the goals are coming consistently from them. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last five league games and we can see this one production at least three goals. Over 2.5 goals is at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm) because this does look as if it is going to be a high scoring game.
The Gunners are W2 L1 in their three home games this season, winning their last two home soil. We have to support both teams to score at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm) for the game. That is because Arsenal have not looked terribly convincing at the back. Even though they collected a clean sheet against Everton on the weekend, they were let off the hook by a lack of clinical finishing by the Toffees. They are playing with both Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Aubameyang up front and both were on the scoresheet last weekend. The Gunners generally are a reliable home side.
The Hornets won their first four games of the season but have only taken the one point from their last two. Their winning streak was snapped in a 2-1 loss against Manchester United and then they threw away a lead last weekend out at Fulham to end up in a 1-1 draw. Still, they look in pretty good shape and they have scored in each league game that they have played so far this term. Because they are out on the road through an Arsenal 2-1 correct score option is at 15/2 odds and has the most appeal in the market* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm).
This will only be Watford’s third away game of the league season having picked up four points from their travels so far, a win at Burnley and then the draw at Fulham. Andre Gray and Roberto Pereyra are their joint top scorers with three goals each, but two of Gray’s three were on the road whereas Pereyra has yet to net on the road. Eight of the eleven league goals that Watford have scored this season have been in the second half of matches and they have yet to be trailing at half time in an away game this season. So that suggests that they could be well in the mix at the halftime break and the half time draw should have some appeal for the game in Arsenal v Watford betting tips.
The Gunners and Watford traded home wins last season in the Premier League. Arsenal are W4 L2 in their last six league games against the Hornets. Each of the last nine games between Arsenal and Watford in all competitions have ended over 2.5 goals so there is a big trend there. Both teams have scored in three of the last four meetings.
We can see Arsenal getting the win on the board. They haven’t been scoring consistently even though they still don’t look the best at the back. Because of that, we are looking at Arsenal to win & both teams to score.
27th September 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Bluebirds haven’t managed to get a win on the board yet in the top flight, but they have drawn their last two. So there has been some resilience in them. Will they be able to call on that to shut down the threat of Arsenal? The Gunners got their first win of the season last weekend and are looking to build from there. Read our Cardiff v Arsenal betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
Two points is what Cardiff have earned so far this season in the top flight. After losing their season opener they have landed back to back draws against Newcastle and Huddersfield. The challenge gets a lot tougher for them here. The Bluebirds are yet to strike a goal in the top flight this season and immediately for our Cardiff v Arsenal betting tips we have to go with Arsenal to win to nil at 8/15 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 4:35 p.m.). Cardiff’s one home game so far saw them play out a 0-0 draw with Newcastle But they may well have more trouble keeping Arsenal off the scoresheet.
In the bet365 correct score market, an Arsenal 2-0 scoreline has appeal for the fixture at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 4:35 p.m.). If the Bluebirds can keep the scoreline down in this one to under 2.5 goals they will probably have done pretty well. There is a doubt over Nathaniel Mendez-Laing now who had to go off early last weekend. If there is any hope for the Bluebirds in his one it will be their resilient defence and Arsenal’s shocking away record from last season.
Over 2.5 goals is at 3/4 odds but we are going to go under the goal line, which bucks a trend a bit for just 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 4:35 p.m.). There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 12 of Arsenal’s last fourteen games, but they are facing a pretty well-organised Cardiff defence. On the flip side of that Cardiff’s three games this season have ended under. As we don’t see Arsenal conceding here, we have to go under the goal line. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, who is looking for his first goal of the season is the strong favourite in the first goalscorer market
Arsenal have lost eight of their last nine away games in the Premier League and they have conceded at least two goals in five of their last six on the road. It was such a poor return away from home from them last season and in their one away game this season, they failed to get a point. That was a trip to Stamford Bridge where the Gunners played well in parts but sloppy defending let them down. An Arsenal/Arsenal half-time/ full-time option in this one is at 11/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 4:35 p.m.).
Arsenal both league meetings the last time the two clubs were together which was back in the 2013/14 Premier League season. Cardiff failed to get a goal on the board in either of the fixtures. Arsenal are on a three-match winning streak against Cardiff in all competitions, with all three wins being to nil. The Gunners are undefeated in their last thirteen games against the Welsh club in all competitions.
Cardiff are lacking a punch up front and Arsenal should be able to carve out enough chances to be able to get a win on the board in this one. This may not be a pretty game to watch and Arsenal may well have to bide their time, but we are sticking with the Gunners to win to nil.
30th August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Gunners are still on the hunt for their first points of the season having suffered back to back defeats in a tough opening sequence of games against Man City and Chelsea. Can Unai Emery’s men starting getting some momentum after putting together some impressive spells at Stamford Bridge last weekend? West Ham have fallen to a poor start after a big summer of change. Read our Arsenal v West Ham betting tips for more.
West Ham 8/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.)
The Gunners have not produced a win so far this season in the Premier League. It was never going to be the easiest of starts for them as they lost at home against Man City and then away at Chelsea. There were brighter moments for them at Stamford Bridge as they fought back from 2-0 down to get back level. They created more than enough chances to have been free and clear in the game. But by the same token, they still looked very unsure at the back. With that in mind we are looking at the both teams to score option at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.). That is still five goals shipped in two games for the Gunners and there is clear work to do.
Unai Emery clearly wants to play his way but the personnel don’t appear to be an exact fit for his plans. Up front, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the 9/4 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken from August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.) and we are going with that for our Arsenal v West Ham predictions as surely he is due one after missing some glorious chances at Stamford Bridge. Two of Arsenal’s least convincing players this season have been Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka and both could miss out on starting places. Arsenal are also still missing Sead Kolasinac, Laurent Koscielny and Carl Jenkinson. They are going to be pretty desperate to get that first win of the season under their belt here in this London derby.
It has also been a rough start for West Ham. They opened with a 4-0 drubbing against Liverpool and then suffered a 2-1 loss at home against Bournemouth last weekend. For all of their heavy summer investments, that’s a poor return. So again you have a side here who has given up a lot of goals and over 3.5 goals makes for a solid proposition in this one and that is at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.). They have averaged just the eight shots per game so far this season per game on average and that’s surprising given the amount of attacking talent that they do have. They have played some pretty poor stuff.
It was Marko Arnautovic who got their goal against Bournemouth last weekend, but summer signing Felipe Anderson has looked really good. He has arguably been their standout performer in the front line and he is at 10/3 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.). West Ham had a really bad time of things away from home last season in the Premier League winning just three times (D6 L10). Their defeat at Liverpool snapped an eleven match scoring streak they were on away from home. Last season the Irons failed to beat any of the top-eight finishers on the road.
Arsenal are W4 D2 in their last six meetings against West Ham in all competitions. They took a big 4-1 win in this corresponding fixture from last season but both teams have scored in just one of the last four meetings (all competitions). Regardless of that, four of the last six clashes between the two London clubs have gone over 2.5 goals. Arsenal have won their last three home games against West Ham.
We have been surprised by how poor West Ham have looked so far and because of that, we have to back Arsenal to come up with a win. The Gunners did produce some good stuff against Chelsea and could find as many gaps against the Hammers. Home win & both teams to score tops our betting tips for Arsenal v West Ham.
25th August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
It is a big London derby on Saturday evening as Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea. The Gunners will be under pressure after losing heavily at home last weekend against Manchester City in what is a tough fixture start to the season. Chelsea bagged a fairly comfortable three points at Huddersfield last weekend and will be looking to push on from there. Read our Chelsea v Arsenal betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 15th, 2018 at 11:36 p.m.)
The Blues collected a solid 3-0 away win over Huddersfield last weekend in their season opener and it was, by and large, easy and comfortable for them. First-half goals from N’Golo Kante and penalty from Jorginho put the Blues well on their path for three points before Pedro rounded it off late into the game. We are expecting the game to go under 2.5 goals as three of the last four meetings in the league at Stamford Bridge have done. Under 2.5 goals is at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 15th, 2018 at 11:36 p.m.). Both will be somewhat cagey against the other in this early season match up. The Blues have a clean sheet in five of their last six home games against Arsenal in all competitions. Each of Chelsea’s last three home games in the Premier League ended under 2.5 goals as well.
Chelsea do look short of a genuine goalscorer and that was something that was not addressed in the transfer market over the summer. Alvaro Morata got a full game up front against Huddersfield but didn’t manage to get on target. He is the 7/5 joint anytime goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken on August 15th, 2018 at 11:36 p.m.) for the game though alongside teammate Olivier Giroud who had an extended rest after the efforts of winning the World Cup. The Blues did not have a great season last term but they did manage to still string together a decent season on home soil, posting a W11 D4 L4 record at the Bridge. They scored an average of 1.6 goals per game there. They never looked defensively confiding at all last season but took a clean sheet in 53% of their home games conceding under a goal per game on average.
As both games between these two at Stamford Bridge last season ended goalless there may be a temptation to look at the 14/1 odds on a 0-0 correct score option, but we are going to suggest a little more value in a Chelsea 1-0 at 17/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 15th, 2018 at 11:36 p.m.). The Gunners were at home last weekend in a tough opener against Manchester City and they failed their test, losing 2-0 against the reigning champions. They looked unsure of what they were doing and new boss Unai Emery said that his side didn’t play the way that he wanted them too. The Gunners mustered up just three shots on target last weekend against Manchester City.
There was a lot of trying to play the ball out from the back with very little success. Arsenal had a terrible time of things away from home last season in the Premier League posting just a W4 D4 L11 record on their travels. They have lost seven of their last eight away games. They are however undefeated in their last six games against Chelsea in all competitions and they can boast one of the top scorers in European football in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who is a 5/4 anytime goalscorer option for them* (Betting Odds were taken on August 15th, 2018 at 11:36 p.m.).
Chelsea and Arsenal met five times last season across all competitions and four of those games ended in a draw. The only exception was a 2-1 home win that the Gunners took in the EFL Cup against the Blues. Both games between them at Stamford Bridge last season ended in 0-0 draws. Chelsea are undefeated in their last six home games against Arsenal in the Premier League with a strong W5 D1 record.
Chelsea collected a win last weekend and they can drive forward from that. The Blues looked a bit more sure of what was being asked of them tactically in their game than Arsenal did in theirs. The Gunners may need more time to figure out what they are doing under Emery and we are backing a home win by a one-goal margin.
16th August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
This is the big game of the opening weekend of the new Premier League season. The Gunners have had a summer of transition with new manager Unai Emery taking over and bolstering the squad. How will they fare this season against Man City? City had an easy time of things last season against Arsenal beating them comfortably and the reigning Champions will be looking to sail through this tough opening test on the road.
Man City 19/20
* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.)
So a new era for Arsenal and they will be totally banking on their home form. Last season at the Emirates the Gunners posted a W15 D2 L2 record, which was very good and those two home defeats happened against the top two finishers, Man City and Man Utd. Other than that, they were pretty strong and picked up a clean sheet in 47% of their home games. We don’t see them getting a clean sheet here even though they have bolstered their defence and defensive midfield areas over the summer. We have to look at both teams to score at bet365 which is an obviously-looking Arsenal v Man City betting tip at 1/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.). Can new boss Unai Emery get the Gunners going off on the right foot?
Arsenal are undefeated in 24 of their last 26 league home games, which is a fantastic record. They also scored at least three goals in each of their last five home games of last season. The addition back in January of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang could pay dividends this season and he is at even money in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.). Another direction to head in for your betting is looking over the 2.5 goals and probably pushing it out to over 3.5 realistically. The Gunners saw over 2.5 goals in all but one of their last nine games against the Citizens in all competitions. Last season they were completed humbled by City. Will it be the same for them again?
The Citizens biggest issue really will be over the fitness of those players arriving back late in the summer for training after the World Cup. Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne for example on got back to training this week. The Citizens have already been out competitively this season as they took a comfortable 2-0 win in the Community Shield over Chelsea last weekend. They do of course have an enviable squad stacked to the rafters in terms of quality of depth so they shouldn’t be hurting too much. City have won 31 of their last 35 Premier League matches and they have scored at least three goals in their last three games against the Gunners across all competitions. In the bet365 correct score market a Manchester City 3-1 result is at 14/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.) and appeals for Arsenal v Man City betting tips.
Sergio Aguero was the star of their Community Shield success as he got both of City’s goals and he is the 4/1 favourite in the bet365 first goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.). Another betting tip to consider for Arsenal v Manchester City is backing the Citizens in a half-time/ full-time option. That is because Pep Guardiola’s men have been winning at both half time and full time in their last three matches against Arsenal. Manchester City’s record away from home last season was W16 D2 L1 which incidentally was exactly the same as their final home record. They didn’t do much in the transfer market in the summer with Riyad Mahrez being the highlight just to add more depth in creativity to their ranks.
It was just too easy for the Citizens last season against Arsenal as they beat them three times. They took a 3-1 and 3-0 win over the Gunners in the Premier League as well as a 3-0 success in the EFL Cup. In the last, four Premier League meetings City are now W3 D1 against the Gunners.
Arsenal are going to need time to settle under Emery and because of that, we have to stick with City coming away with the win. They were so good at the Emirates last season and they will have plenty of energy and enterprise about them so early in the season. Away win & both teams to score appeals in our Arsenal v Man City betting tips.

The Terriers can relax on the final day of the season having produced a pretty amazing feat of survival having taken back to back draws at Manchester City and then Chelsea. Those two points keep them up in the top flight for next season. Can they put a bit of shine on all of that go and take a home win against Arsenal who lost at Leicester in midweek?
Arsenal 3/4, Draw 14/5, Huddersfield 10/3* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 9th, 2018)
It has been a tremendous finish from Huddersfield having taken a point out at Manchester City with a 0-0 scoreline and then a 1-1 at Chelsea to follow that up. With that point at Stamford Bridge in midweek, they are completely safe for the season. The Terriers can therefore just enjoy their Sunday out. Their home form is at W6 D5 L7 for the season and they have won just one of their last four on home soil. Goals have been few and far between for them as they have scored just the two in their last four played. Given the way that they have defended lately then the temptation would be to go under 2.5 goals with BetVictor at 7/5 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:10 a.m.). Each of their last four home games have gone under 2.5 goals. But then you would perhaps wonder if they are just going to ease off now with their survival secured. The Terriers have produced just sixteen goals in their eighteen home games this season bit defensively they haven’t been all that bad having conceded an average of 1.3 goals per game. They have taken a clean sheet in 39% of their home games this term.
Arsenal’s awful away form continued with a defeat out at Leicester in midweek. That is seven league away games for the Gunners in 2018 and they have produced seven defeats. Arsenal’s away form is just W3 D4 L11 for the season and there has been some calamitous defending from them on their travels. Given how good their home form has been it is just so strange that they have not put anything together on the road. Both teams to score at BetVictor is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:10 a.m.) for the game as the Gunners do pose a threat going forward and they have scored in each of their last nine Premier League games home and away combined. Each of their last ten games have finished above the 2.5 goals line and they have shipped at least two goals in each of their last four away from the Emirates. In total they have taken a clean sheet in just 17% of their away games and currently, they are on an eight-match winless streak of away form and are without a clean sheet in nine on their travels.
Arsenal were 5-0 home winners earlier in the season over the Terriers. That is back to back wins over them that they have taken. In the last four meetings, three of which were cup games, Arsenal are W3 D1. This season’s earlier meeting was the first league contest between them since the old Division 1 in 1972.
The Terriers have put in some stronger performances to end the season with and there shouldn’t be any reason why they can’t take advantage of Arsenal’s poor away form this season to go and get themselves a good point to finish off the season with.
11th May 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The end of the season can’t come quickly enough for either of those two really. Leicester are on a big slide and lost badly at home against West Ham on the weekend. Then there is Arsenal who will finish the season without silverware and outside of the top five in the league. Can the Gunners put some horrible away form in the league behind them and go and bag themselves three points at the King Power?
Arsenal 21/20, Leicester 5/2, Draw 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 00:06 a.m. on May 6th, 2018)
Leicester have taken just the one point from their last five league games and they have failed to hit the back of the net in each of their last three. It has been such a poor finish from them and they haven’t even found their footing at the King Power. Leicester are D4 L2 in their last six Premier League home games only. That is part of an overall home record of W6 D6 L6 and they have badly lost their way. They were beaten at the King Power by West Ham on the weekend and that is nine goals that they have conceded in their last four games. Over 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes is at 1/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 2:05 a.m. on May 7th, 2018). The Foxes have returned 1.2 goals per game on average at the King Power but have failed to net in their last two there. So it is a little hard to gauge the both teams to score market because Arsenal have no away form but look the stronger of the two sides at the moment. The Foxes have taken a home win against a current top six side this season, that being a 2-1 success over Spurs and they also held Manchester United to a 2-2 draw at the King Power.
Arsenal gave Arsene Wenger a huge send-off in his last game at the Emirates on the weekend as they smashed Burnley 5-0. That continued their powerful home form, but they are on a shocking six-match losing streak away from home in the top flight, winless in seven. They have scored in all but one of their last eight on the road though and in the Ladbrokes correct score market an Arsenal 2-1 is at 15/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 2:05 a.m. on May 7th, 2018). Given the number of goals that they have conceded away from home this season then it is probably worth looking at Leicester to manage something against the Gunners. Arsenal have conceded an average of 1.6 goals per away game this season having taken a clean sheet in just 18% of their road games. They have no clean sheet in their last eight games away from the Emirates and have conceded at least two in each of their last three on the road. The Gunners are looking for what would only be their fourth away win of the season. Their last game of the season is away from home too, at Huddersfield on the weekend.
The Gunners won a thrilling 4-3 encounter at the start of the season against the Foxes to keep their good stretch of unbeaten form against Leicester going. The Gunners haven’t lost a Premier League game against the Foxes going W9 D4 against them from their previous meetings. Three of the last four between them at Leicester though have been draws.
Arsenal, even though they have been really poor away from home this season, should have more about them than Leicester do at the moment. The Foxes look to have gone on summer break early and were happy enough to give younger players a run out last weekend. Away win.

This is actually a little personal battle for a top six finish between these two. Arsenal go into the game with a three point advantage over the Clarets. They do have a game in hand over them as well. But this is going to be all about Arsene Wenger’s last Premier League home game in charge of the Gunners.
Arsenal 8/15, Draw 3/1, Burnley 11/2* (Betting Odds taken at 9:44 p.m. on April 30th, 2018)
Arsenal’s miserable away form continued last weekend, but they are on a fair old tear of positive form at home. The Gunners are on a four-match winning streak at home in the league, scoring at least three goals in each of those. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 for this game is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 1st, 2018). Each of their last nine home fixtures have gone above the goal line. This is Arsene Wenger’s last game in charge at home so the team will probably want to respond with a positive result. The Gunners have averaged 2.7 goals per home game this season and they have picked up a clean sheet in 44% of their home games. Arsenal are 8/5 at bet365 to win to nil* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 1st, 2018). The Gunners have been leading at half time in ten of their home games this season so another option is an Arsenal/Arsenal half time/full time option and they have the options of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Aubameyang in the anytime goalscorer market. A point out of this guarantees them sixth.
It has been a great season for Burnley who are on the threshold of Europe next season. The Clarets are W4 D3 L1 in their last eight games in the top flight, so they have been finishing the season strongly. They have only taken the two points in their last three games though but are unbeaten in their last four on the road (W3 D1). They have done really well on the road against most of the current top flight this season, winning at Chelsea and taking a point in trips to Liverpool, Spurs and Man Utd. So they can hold their own for the most part. They have conceded at under a goal per game on their travels this season. They have only netted 20 in 18 away games themselves though. A win here draws them level with the Gunners which would make things interesting. 71% of their away goals conceded have been in the second half of matches. In the bet365 correct score market, the shortest priced option is an Arsenal 1-0 at 13/2 odds. Ashley Barnes has scored in three of Burnley’s last four away games.
The Clarets suffered a 1-0 home loss against Arsenal earlier this season and that just extended their losing streak against the Gunners to seven in all competitions. From the seven previous Premier League meetings between the clubs, Arsenal are W6 D1 winning all three of their home games. Four of Arsenal’s last five league wins against Burnley have been with a clean sheet.
Arsenal will finish off the season at home with a win for Wenger probably. They have been solid at the Emirates for most of the season and will have their emotional tails up for this one. Home win and a likely to nil.
