Game against Reading is Arsenal’s to lose

Arsenal are 1.67 with Betfred to beat Reading away on Monday night, and everything suggests they will do just that.

The Gunners will be looking to bounce back from the their shock Capital One Cup defeat to Bradford where they put in a woeful display.

The League Two club stunned Arsene Wenger’s side on Tuesday, winning on penalties after the scores were locked at 1-1 after extra-time, a result which brought about some scathing attacks on the manager.

However before that the Gunners did put an end to a run of three league games without a win when beating West Brom 2-0 at the Emirates and this looks a great opportunity for them to bag another three points.

As far as the stats are concerned they have met Reading 10 times in all competitions and won on every occasion.

Reading have also won just one of their last 10 Premier League games at the Madejski Stadium (W1, D5 ,L4) and lost their last 5 matches in succession.

Lukas Podolski is due a goal and looks a bit of value at 6.5 with Betfred and Paddy Power in the first goalscorer market.

Another bet well worth considering is over 3.5 goals at 2.62 with Boylesports and Paddy Power as Reading have managed just one clean sheet in the league all season and the last two Premier League meetings between the pair have seen Arsenal put seven past them.

I fancy Arsenal to triumph 3-0, and that outcome is priced up at 13 with bet365 and Paddy Power.

    Andy you must be one of few who now still have confidence in senile arsene and his collection of flops around the world. Perhaps you have to do so being a regular blogger for the club. I for one had lost faith in the team and the manager. Prediction is not my cup of tea. What the pundits like you after the shameful defeat against a club 65 places below arsenal. Forget about your loyality to the club and be man enough to admit that the club is not in the same league as manu, city, chelsea.

    People: LeBron James is nowhere near the competitor that Michael Jordan was. Quit comparing the two.|whereishawkins|
