Sunderland v Arsenal
Saturday 12:30pm BST
We’re tipping only Arsenal will score here just don’t know when and our money is on Both Teams to Score – “No” at 2.10 with Bet365.
I guess David Moyes can’t have too long left at Sunderland. They really have been disappointing, notwithstanding the unsettled squad and a rotten run with injuries but 2 points from 9 just doesn’t cut it. Arsenal on the other hand are still flying, albeit held by ‘Boro last week.
Head-to-head it doesn’t look great for Sunderland again, our 10-game sample over the last 5 seasons shows P10, Arsenal 7, Draws 3 and of course, Sunderland 0. The only positive, although very small, is that the last time they played was a Draw at the Stadium Of Light. All 3 Draws have been 0-0 stalemates.
This encounter has thrown up a real mixed bag when looking at goals – 5 have gone Over 2.5 and 5 have gone Under 2.5. In addition, Both Teams have scored in 5 of the 10 only. Perhaps the value lies in Both Teams to Score – No.
2 of the last 3 encounters have been goalless but in the games where we’ve seen at least 1 goal, Arsenal have scored first in 6 of the 7.
