Arsenal have not had a lot of luck lately, especially with the never-ending injuries to our defenders, but there is no doubt that the Gunners have an exemplary record at home in the League, not having lost since the opening day of the season. Here are all our home games in this campaign so far…..
Not only have we not lost for 11 games, we have also taken all three points against every team in the bottom half of the table (although Huddersfield did give us a scare!). It is also worth mentioning that we beat Leicester, West Ham, Tottenham and Chelsea by two clear goals as well.
In contrast, poor Cardiff have only won one away game which was during the crazy congested Christmas period when we always get a few shocks. Here are their away games this season….
Since their crazy away win at Leicester, the Bluebirds have failed to score in their subsequent four matches, against teams like Gillingham, Huddersfield and Newcastle and Tottenham. They were hoping that Emiliano Sala was going to be their saviour from Nantes and the devastating news about his disappearance cannot have helped the feeling of despair in the Welsh capital. Losing 3-0 to their main rivals for the last relegation spot, Newcastle United, last week won’t have helped.
I read lots of other previews before writing this and even JustArsenal’s in-house pessimist Dan gives us an easy win, but I am inclined to go with our UK’s betting experts advice, who are going for a 3-0 win for the Gunners. I am pretty sure that Cardiff won’t score, and if they do, we will score many more! So I’m having three bets on this one….
Arsenal to win to nil @ around 23/20
There will be three goals or more in the game @ 6/5
Arsenal to win by exactly three goals @ 4/1
What do you think of those odds?
