Bet of the Day: Arsenal to beat the handicap against West Brom
Gunners good value to see off Baggies
Arsenal host West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates on Monday Night Football looking to stretch their unbeaten run in all competitions to five games.
Arsene Wenger’s squad are not playing their most free-flowing football at the minute. However, they are keeping it relatively tight.
They have managed three clean sheets in their last four games, conceding just once, to Koln.
The Gunners welcome Tony Pulis’ Baggies side with the knowledge that the Midlands outfit have failed to win here since October 2010.
That run stretches back six games. The North London club have won four of those fixtures by more than two goals.
After a good start to this season, West Brom are winless in four games in all competitions.
That brings us swiftly to the Coral News Team’s main tip for this match.
The 10/11 on Arsenal to win on the -1 handicap is Coral’s Bet of the Day.
Defensive shut-out possible
Arsenal have a habit of not just beating Albion here at the Emirates, but keeping a clean sheet.
In this particular fixture, five of the last six have all ended in wins to nil for the Gunners.
Wenger has no defensive headaches to deal with. His back five should remain in place.
The 23/20 on Arsenal to Win to Nil looks a value bet.
Sanchez remains key man
Despite not getting his move to Manchester City, Alexis Sanchez remains a key player for this Arsenal outfit.
He seems to love playing against the Baggies, too. The Chilean star has three goals in his last three appearances against West Brom.
Danny Welbeck is out with a groin injury which will be a blow considering his early season good form.
However, it will be a chance for Alexandre Lacazette to step up.
The Frenchman has two goals to his name so far this term. He’s 14/5 to be First Goalscorer.
