Fulham vs Arsenal – Gunners can heap the pressure on Man City

| 20.05.2011

Arsenal have to better Manchester City’s result on Sunday in order to secure the final Champions League automatic spot, and they can pile the pressure on Mancini’s Men at Craven Cottage.

Despite a late season collapse that has seen them lose three of their last four games, Craven Cottage is a happy hunting ground for Arsenal

Match Odds

It may be out of their hands but Arsenal have to win on Sunday if they are to stand any chance of an automatic Champions League spot, and the 1/1 for them to win looks the value of the weekend.

The draw can be ruled out with none of Fulham’s nine Premier League home games with Arsenal ending even, and the Cottagers have never drawn a Premier League game on the final day of the season.

Fulham have won just two of their 19 Premier League games with Arsenal and Mark Hughes side offer very little value at 13/5 to win the game.

Total Goals

Fulham fans may want to look away now.

The Cottagers have failed to score in six of their last eight home games against the Gunners and Arsenal have scored exactly four goals on the final day in three of the last five seasons.

A 4-0 win for Arsenal is priced up at a mammoth 40/1 while Robin van Persie cannot stop scoring – he’s scored more than the whole Blackburn side this season – and offers plenty of value at 4/1 to get the first goal.

Arsenal are 5/2 to be winning at half-time and winning at full-time but take the 11/4 for the Gunners to win to nil.

A £10 stake on Arsenal beating Fulham 4-0 would return £410. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free bet worth up to £30.
