2013-08-17 - Arsenal v Aston Villa

A Sports Betting Preview by Lamps

Arsenal v Aston Villa
Football : English : Premier League
Saturday 17th August - Kickoff 3:00pm



Arsenal


Arsenal eventually held onto 4th place last season to grant themselves a Champions League qualifier against Fenerbache. As usual that's the minimum expected from the Gunners this year and they certainly have their hands full with Tottenham and Liverpool this year as they realistically fight for one spot.

Wenger has signed just one player this season and that's Sanogo a young French striker for no fee. The Gunners have missed out on Higuain, Rooney and potentially Gastavo this summer and all of a sudden a lot is expected from virtually the same squad as last season.

Arsenal have a few injury worries ahead of this game Sagna, Ramsay, Monreal, Arteta, Carzola and Walcott are doubts whilst Vermaelen and Diaby are out indefinitely. Giroud is likely to start up front supported by Carzola, Rosicky and Walcott so there's plenty of ammunition for the hosts.

The Gunners ended the season brilliantly winning 8 of the last 10 and they playing Aston Villa. Villa have won just 2 of the last 29 matches against Arsenal in all competitions and given this is at the Emirates it's hard not to like the Londoners.

Aston Villa


Aston Villa looked doomed at times last season but Lambert persisted with his youngsters and they came through for him. The Midlands club evaded relegation and even managed to keep start player Benteke at the club for another season.

In the offseason Villa spent 10.2m bringing in Bacuna, Okore, Helenius, Tonev and Luna. Of the new additions I expect Luna to make the starting lineup possibly at left back and Tonev in an advanced midfield role. The other additions certainly add some much needed depth to the squad but for now may have to take a place on the bench.

Last season Villa were the over 2.5 kings as the last 11 league games on their travels ended with at least 3 goals scored. In the last 5 games against Villa at the Emirates there has been at least 3 goals but unfortunately for Villa the Gunners have netted at least twice in the last 3 at home versus them as well.

Betting Verdict


Arsenal as ever are an excellent attacking side but we can't forget how well they improved defensively when Mertersacker was partnered with Koscielny. Both should start on Saturday and I think over the season they will be tougher to beat.

As for this game the goal line is at 3 given how strong the hosts are in front of goal and the Villa away overs trends so no value there. In just 2 of the last 6 league meetings at the Emirates Arsenal have cleared the -1.50 AH line and I'm going to take Villa to avoid a big defeat on opening day.

With a few injury doubts for the host (not helped by the midweek Internationals) I feel the visitors will be fresher and better prepared for this big game. As a result they could sneak a draw but given we are getting a big head start I'll take Aston Villa in the Asian market with Arsenal most likely edging it over 90 minutes.

Good Luck
