Arsenal vs Stoke – Stoke have won 11% of games away to Arsenal
Arsenal suffered a title blip with their loss at Old Trafford on Monday and Arsene Wenger knows his side must beat Stoke with a game against Chelsea following Saturday’s tie.
Stoke have a miserable record when travelling to North London, in 82 ties against either Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur, they have only won seven of them.
Arsenal must be the banker of the weekend despite their recent home form at the Emirates and at 3/10 to beat Stoke, the Premier League betting market also believe so.
However there is a little previous between the two teams after Ryan Shawcross’s tackle broke Aaron Ramsey’s leg in the game at the Britannia Stadium in February, and Wenger will need to get his side’s emotions in check if they are to emerge victorious.
Stoke are a huge price at 10/1 to beat Arsenal, but considering the Arsenal players have extra motivation heading into the game, there can only be one result.
With Arsenal certain to win, it’s a case of who will score and how many will be scored on Saturday.
Surprisingly, it’s a Stoke player that comes to mind as Ricardo Fuller has scored four goals in four starts against Arsenal and is 4/1 to score any time.
There has been four penalties in the last three games between the two sides and a penalty to be awarded and as Nasri is Arsenal’s penalty taker, he can continue his fine form in front of goal and is 6/5 to score any time.
The Gunners have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven league home matches but they have scored 13 goals in the last five games against Stoke and a 3-1 win for Arsenal is priced at 9/1.
A £10 stake on Fuller scoring first but Arsenal winning 3-1 would return £1,510. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
