Gunners favourites to secure three points at Wigan

Arsenal are 1.73 with bet365 and Paddy Power to pick up all three points in their away game at Wigan and everything suggests they will do just that.

The Gunners come into the game having won their last two in the league and were impressive in thrashing Reading 5-2 at the Madejski Stadium on Monday night.

By stark contrast, Wigan have managed to win just one of their last seven matches, suffering five defeats in that period, and have won only two of their last 18 Premier League games played in the month of December (W2 D9 L7).

The stats are also good as far as Arsene Wenger’s men are concerned
as the sides have met 14 times in the top flight with Arsenal emerging victorious on 10 occasions.

It really should be a third league win on the bounce for Arsenal, so who is going to get that all important first goal to hopefully fire them to a comfortable success?

Well it’s no surprise to see the bookies Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott favourites to break the deadlock, and they can be backed at 6 and 6.5 respectively in the first goalscorer market with bet365.

However at the odds on offer it’s Thomas Vermaelen who looks worth an each-way punt at 19 with Boylesports in the same market.

He has as scored in each of his three Premier League appearances against Wigan, netting four in total across those matches.

Another bet well worth considering is over 3.5 goals at 2.62 with Boylesports and Paddy Power as there have been 18 goals in the last four league meetings between these two sides at the DW Stadium with at least four in each encounter.

Arsenal won the corresponding fixture last season 4-0 and a repeat of that outcome looks worth a small wager at 34 with Betfred.

I would also suggest having a small saver on 4-1 which can be backed at 29 with Betfred.

    Don’t be silly this is Wenger we are talking about, he will start with Gervinho and Ramsey the Jinx, he will play players out of position and his formation and tactics will bite him on the arse as it generally does with teams we should beat so easily, also 12.30 K.O so the Arsenal defence will still be in bed in London
