Just as Arsenal always give their fans palpitations right until the end of individual games, they are also keeping us on tenterhooks regarding our finishing position in the League. Tomorrow’s match against Man United could go a long way to allay our fears if we can take something away at the end of it.
According to Ladbrokes, Man United are favourites at 6/4 with Arsenal a very generous 15/8 to win the game, but I am even happier about the price of 5/2 for the draw. Wenger has already admitted that a draw would be a great result for the Gunners, and I believe Le Prof will set out the team to frustrate the United forwards right from the start. Ladbrokes are also tempting me with 12/1 for a 0-0 draw, and with Arsenal having failed to find the net in their last two outings could be a serious choice for me. By the way if you want to take advantage of these prices then make sure you use this bonus code for Ladbrokes before investing your money. Maybe you could use it to have a saver on the 1-1 draw?
Man United’s form has been in-and-out all season, and when they lost to lowly West Brom in their last home game to make three defeats in a row their season looked finished, but they struggled through to victory over Crystal Palace last week to hold on to their hopes of a Top Three finish. Both teams are likely to be nervous so I am not expecting a high-scoring game. The reported news today that David De Gea will likely be leaving United this summer could also have a destabilising effect on the home side.
Not many get past the young Spaniard, but if you are hoping that Arsenal may nick a goal, then maybe the 9/1 on offer for 0-1 may appeal to you, but I am going to stick my neck out and take Giroud to score the only goal of the game at a cool 40/1 from Ladbrokes. That looks extremely generous in a very tight game, so there will be a small investment in that from me!
Whatever you decide on, let’s simply hope Arsenal can stop United from scoring, then my bets would all look good! Good luck to Arsenal and good luck to you too!
