Gunners a stunner at 2/1

Live on BTSport 1: Sat 12.45: Arsenal (2/1, Boylesports) can beat Man City in the Premier League and Danny Welbeck could strike.

The international break proved costly for Man City, who may be without Stevan Jovetic for the foreseeable future after the striker picked up a hamstring injury whilst on duty with Montenegro. That leaves the champions with just Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero, who Manuel Pellegrini is nursing back to full fitness, as recognised striking options for this week’s tricky trip to Arsenal.

By contrast, the Gunners are looking in ruder health in attack after their much-maligned new signing Danny Welbeck struck twice in England’s impressive victory against Switzerland and that, coupled with City’s shock home reverse to Stoke last time out, suggests Arsene Wenger’s men are overpriced at 2/1 with Boylesports ahead of the Emirates Stadium showdown.

Certainly City appear too skinny at 7/5 via Paddy Power and although a stalemate, priced by William Hill at 13/5, isn’t out of the question, at the odds the hosts look like the value bet.

Nevertheless, it’s hard to envisage anything but a close affair despite Arsenal’s 3-0 Community Shield triumph over the same opponents last month and a case can be made for them to shade it by one at 16/5 (Ladbrokes).

Meanwhile, in a match that’s odds-on at 8/13 courtesy of BetVictor to see both teams get on the scoresheet, bet365’s 11/1 about a 2-1 Gunners triumph might attract speculative cash and BetVictor price Danny Welbeck at an enticing 13/2 to follow up Monday’s brace with the opening goal here.

Recommended Bets:
Arsenal to beat Man City – 2/1 (Stan James)
Danny Welbeck to score first – 13/2 (BetVictor)
