Arsenal v Everton Premier League Preview 0

Posted on September 22, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal host Everton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon, as the Gunners to make it four wins in a row in the top-flight.

Arsenal recorded a 4-2 win over Vorskla in the Europa League to make it four straight wins in all competitions after a poor start to their campaign. Last time out in the Premier League Unai Emery’s team recorded a 2-1 win at struggling Newcastle.

The home sides recent run of form has been powered by their attacking play, as Emery’s side have now scored at least two goals in all four of those four straight wins.

Arsenal kick-off their Europa League campaign on Monday night, as the Gunners welcome Ukrainian outfit Vorskla to the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners head into this seasons competition with the added Europa League experience of boss Unai Emery. The Spaniard has, of course, won the trophy on three previous occasions with Sevilla.

Arsenal are relative novices in the Europa League in its current guises, as last season was their first in competition under its current name. The Gunners did make the semi-final of the competition last season, though, only to be eliminated by Champions League dropouts Atletico Madrid.

Newcastle v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on September 14, 2018 by David Nugent

The Premier League returns this weekend after a two-week international break. Arsenal’s first game after the break is a trip to Newcastle on Saturday afternoon.

The home side have made a woeful start to their Premier League campaign this season, having failed to win any of their four league games, while suffering three defeats in the process.

The Magpies have struggled to keep the opposition out, as the north east side has conceded at least two goals in three of their four league games this season. The home side’s poor form started at the back end of last season. Due to that poor form, Rafa Benitez’s side has now lost seven of their last nine top-flight games.

Cardiff v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on September 01, 2018 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Cardiff City host Arsenal at the Cardiff City Stadium, as the Gunners look to record back-to-back league victories.

Cardiff has yet to record a victory on their return to the Premier League, picking up just two points from their opening three top-flight games this season. The Bluebirds suffered a 3-1 home defeat in midweek in the Carabao Cup.

Last time out in the Premier League, Neil Warnock’s side picked up a goalless draw at Huddersfield. The draw means that the Welsh side has failed to score in any of their three Premier League games so far this season.

Arsenal v West Ham Premier League Preview 0

Posted on August 24, 2018 by David Nugent

On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal host West Ham at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to pick up their first league win of the campaign.

Unai Emery’s side will be looking to kick-start their Premier League campaign back on track after losing their opening games against Manchester City and Chelsea respectively. In fact, the Gunners have lost three of their last four Premier League outings.

Despite those negatives, Arsenal’s recent home record in the Premier League is still strong, as the City defeat ended a five-game winning run on home soil. A key to that recent good run of form has been the Gunners firepower, as Arsenal have now scored at least two goals in seven of the last nine games.

Chelsea v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on August 17, 2018 by David Nugent

On Saturday evening, Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League, as the visitors look to chalk up their first points of the season.

Chelsea started the Maurizio Sarri era with a routine 3-0 win at Huddersfield on the opening weekend of the campaign. Goals from Jorginho, N’Golo Kante and Pedro sealed a relatively easy win for the Blues.

The home side ended last season in decent form, and the Blues have now won five of their last season matches in the English top-flight. The fact that they have lost just twice in 15 Premier League games shows that the Blues are a tough team to beat.

Arsenal v Manchester City Premier League Preview 0

Posted on August 12, 2018 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal begins a new era, as new boss Unai Emery takes charge of his first competitive game as Gunners boss. The Spaniard could not have asked for a tougher challenge for his first game, as Manchester City visit the Emirates Stadium.

There is a new positive atmosphere at the north London club. The signings of Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi have improved the Gunners squad.

The Gunners finished sixth-place last season in the Premier League, having endured an inconsistent league campaign. Their final six games of the last season’s campaign summed-up their season, as they won three and lost three of their final six games.

Prediction: Nigeria vs Iceland 0

Posted on June 21, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Prediction: Draw

Best Odds: 21/10

Bookmaker: bet365

The variety act that is the World Cup often throws up a handful of surprises, and when it comes to Group D, we’ve already seen our fair share. It was considered to be the Group of Death from the word go and it’s lived up to that reputation thus far, with four more games scheduled to come that will shape the immediate future of all four nations. In this encounter, Nigeria will take on Iceland, in a battle between the two teams who were considered to be the underdogs behind Argentina and Croatia at the start of the tournament.

Prediction: France vs Peru 0

Posted on June 20, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Prediction: Draw

Best Odds: 16/5

Bookmaker: bet365

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is in full swing and while it may not have initially seemed like it at the start of the tournament, Group C is already looking like one of the most entertaining groups of them all – and we’ve only played one set of fixtures thus far. All four teams feel like they’re in with a realistic chance of securing qualification through to the knockout stages in Russia, and while their skill levels certainly vary, the two matches we’ve already seen indicate that France vs Peru could be one of the games of the summer.

Prediction: Colombia vs Japan 0

Posted on June 18, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Prediction: Colombia win

Best Odds: 4/6

Bookmaker: bet365

The majority of the nations in the 2018 FIFA World Cup have now competed in their first group stage game, but there are still a handful of sides waiting to make an impact. Two such examples are Colombia and Japan, and while they may be polar opposite countries, they both have a mutual goal – defy expectations and qualify for the knockout stages. In many ways, they’re both considered to be underdogs in their group, but as we’ve seen in the past, that’ll suit these two just fine.
