Arsene Wenger is likely to make a number of changes for his Arsenal side’s FA Cup third round tie against Leeds but the Gunners’ youngsters should still do a job on the Championship outfit and William Hill agree, pricing the hosts at 3/10 ahead of the Emirates Stadium clash.
In the handicaps, Skybet penalise the hosts by a goal at odds of 8/11 but the Whites are a resilient bunch with some decent recent cup results under their belt in recent years, including a draw with Arsenal in the same competition exactly a year ago, so Wenger’s troops won’t find it easy.
Arsenal completed a short-term deal for the return of Thierry Henry on Friday and as he could be included in the Gunners line-up in order to get him back up-to-speed, some punters might fancy Betfred’s 9/2 for the French front man to come back with a bang by breaking the deadlock. How much of a part Henry will play remains to be seen however, so the same firm’s 5/4 for him to strike at any time looks a little less speculative.
Arsenal to beat Leeds by a one-goal margin – 10/3 (Ladbrokes)
