Gunners Shoot to Top of Table

ARSENAL V WEST BROM


I’m always wary of betting before the season settles down, so the tactic I’d suggest at this stage is looking for either an absolute stonewall cert, before the longer odds value unveils itself as the season progresses.

Of the teams that fall into this bracket, Arsenal stand out as the best back, on the basis that their season has already started, thus giving us more than pre-season form and expert opinion to rely on.

Admittedly, they hardly looked like world beaters against Twente, but their opponents on Saturday are only West Brom and that ninety minutes in Holland will have given them a chance to rid themselves of their last remaining cobwebs. It’s impossible to see past a winning start for The Gunners and their backers.
