Gunners To Lift The Carling Cup

Live on Skysports 1: Sun 16.00: Arsenal are eyeing up their first silverware of the season as the take on Birmingham in the Carling Cup final.

Last week was certainly an unforgettable one for Arsenal, who followed up the stunning Champions League triumph against Barcelona by being held to a draw at Leyton Orient, a result that prompted wild scenes of celebration at Brisbane Road, and the Gunners could go on to make it a memorable month on Sunday, for more positive reasons, by securing their first trophy since 2005.

Arsene Wenger’s men are emphatic 1/2 favourites courtesy of Paddy Power to lift the Carling Cup by beating Birmingham in normal time while the Blues are 9.0 (8/1) with Betdaq to end their own 48-year period without major silverware and ensure Arsenal’s wait continues.

The Wembley final is 7/2 (888Sport) to go to extra-time but although Alex McLeish’s side have lost just one of their last seven in all competitions, it’s hard to see past the Gunners in this one. Nevertheless, City have the resilience to ensure it’s a close affair and a decent case can be made for an Arsenal victory by a one-goal margin at 11/4 with Stan James.

Punters aiming to be more precise can tackle Ladbrokes’ 8/1 for Wenger’s charges to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline in a match that rate at 8/11 to produce three or more goals and Gunners midfielder Samir Nasri is capable of contributing to that tally. The French schemer has struck twice against Birmingham already this season, once in each league game, and Betfred quote him at 6/4 to find the net in this one.

Recommended Bets:
Arsenal to win by one goal – 11/4 (Stan James)
Samir Nasri to score at any time – 6/4 (Betfred)
