Weary Arsenal played 80 minutes with ten men on Sunday as they went down 2-0 at home to Manchester City and their potential tiredness means they look a touch skinny at 8/15 with Betfred to overcome Swansea in the pair’s FA Cup replay.
The solid Swans, who earned a very good point and also kept a clean sheet, at Everton on Saturday, are 6/1 via Boylesports for a victory after 90 minutes – a price that will lure some given that Michael Laudrup’s men landed all three points at the Emirates Stadium in December’s Premier League contest, however, bet365′s 7/2 marked against another draw is arguably the best bet.
A case can therefore be made for backing both the Gunners and the visitors, at 20/1 and 25/1 respectively courtesy of Skybet to prevail on penalties.
Nevertheless, the temptation in North London is to back Swansea’s outstanding striker Michu to make an impact again. The in-form Spaniard struck a brace in that league meeting and also opened the scoring in the first FA Cup contest between the two so he’s overpriced at 8/1 (bet365) to notch first and at 12/5 with Stan James to add to his tally at any stage.
Michu to score first – 8/1 (bet365)
