Arsenal have won six matches on the spin in all competitions following their shock opening day defeat to Aston Villa and they look a safe bet at 4/11 courtesy of Stan James to extend that sequence as they welcome Stoke, BetVictor’s 9/1 underdogs, to the Emirates Stadium.
It’s a fixture that tends to be kind to the Gunners, who have beaten the Potters at home in every meeting since the latter came back into the top flight five seasons ago and with Arsene Wenger’s men on a high at present, they can prevail relatively comfortably.
Under Mark Hughes, the visitors have performed pretty well but they still lack cutting edge and that lends appeal to Skybet’s 11/10, marked against a home success ‘to nil’. BetVictor meanwhile, offer 6/1 about a 2-0 triumph for Arsenal, who are 10/11 (Stan James) to lead at the end of each half.
At Selhurst Park, Swansea are 13/10 with bet365 to build on Thursday’s stunning 3-0, Europa League victory in Valencia by collecting a maximum haul at Crystal Palace, where BetVictor price Michu at 21/10 to score for the third consecutive match.
