Arsenal can hit top spot against Bolton whilst Liverpool face a tough task in the TV game with Spurs on Wednesday night. Chris Hutcheon previews
A victory for Arsenal by two clear goals will see them leap to the top of the Premiership and as they defeated Bolton 2-0 on Sunday at the Reebok Stadium, it’s easy to see them repeating the feat as they host the Trotters at the Emirates.
The Gunners are understandably strong favourites for the points at 2/9 (Betfred) while Owen Coyle’s men can be backed at 16/1 with Betdaq to gain revenge for the weekend’s reverse on their own patch and the draw is rated by Jaxx.com at 5/1 but the value lies with that margin of victory for Arsene Wenger’s troops who are 8/11 courtesy of bet365 to triumph by at least two.
Another 2-0 victory for the Gunners is available with Stan James at 11/2 and Russian schemer Andrei Arshavin can get back amongst the goals; he’s 5/1 (888Sport) to open the scoring and 7/5 at Victor Chandler to notch at any stage.
At Anfield, troubled Liverpool face another tough encounter, this time against Spurs, as they seek to salvage a top four finish from the wreckage of a so far disappointing campaign. Totesport price the Reds at 11/8 and Paddy Power post 21/10 against Harry Redknapp’s Tottenham, who are a generous 23/10 (Jaxx.com) to take advantage of Liverpool’s current malaise by nicking a point.
