Arsenal have been tipped for the title in some quarters and the Gunners look set to underline their credentials as they take on West Ham.
The Hammers’ early season Europa League performances hardly inspire confidence and although Arsene Wenger’s team have failed to win on four of the last five opening weekends, they’re banker material at 3/10 (Winner.com) to prevail in this one.
Moreover, they have a cracking record against the East London outfit so it seems like a case of ‘how many’ for the hosts, who are worth an interest at 5/6 when starting a goal in arrears in Skybet’s handicaps.
More accurately, BetVictor chalk Arsene Wenger’s side up at 6/1 to notch twice without reply while the absence of Alexis Sanchez ensures that Arsenal front man Olivier Giroud is the stand out first scorer flutter at 15/4 (bet365).
Olivier Giroud to score first – 15/4 (bet365)
