Arsenal welcomes Swansea on the Emirates Stadium in a match from the 36th round of the Premier League. This is a match which is far more important for the home team than for their guests today. The reason is that Arsenal still fights for a place in the top three, which gives a direct participation in the Champions League group stage. Swansea is on the eighth place in the current standings and almost lost any chance of fighting for the first places which give access to the European tournament next season.
Without any doubt, Arsenal is the team that is in the best shape in England recently. From February 10 the team has recorded 13 wins, one draw and just one single loss, which allowed them to reach the FA Cup final and to be the favourite for the second place in the final standings. Swansea has six wins in their last 10 matches, which is also a quite serious result.
Everybody who do sports betting must be impressed by the 30 goals scored by Arsenal players in their last 15 matches. They managed to reach 100 goals scored in the season and 66 were realized in the league, which is the third best attack in the Premier League. In the last few matches Alexi Sanchez showed again that he returns to his best days, as he passed the 20 goals mark for the season, which is a remarkable first season in England. Apart from this, for the first time in many years we couldn’t see injured players in the Arsenal squad.
What can oppose Swansea on their hosts? Frankly, at that time is quite hard to find something. If we look closely we could see that this season they lost almost all matches of theirs against the top teams in England. They took two wind at home. One of them was against Manchester United and the other was against their hosts today – Arsenal. High spirit and willing to fight to the final whistle. This is what Garry Monk wants from his players and this is what they can do best on the field. More importantly, this is the only way on how Arsenal can be defeated, or at least make their day hard.
The statistics of Londoners in their matches with Swansea shows exactly why the odds, given by Bet365 of 2.05 for a Swansea with with 1.5 goals margin in their favor seems good enough. Thus, even if Arsenal win the match by a goal difference, the bet would be profitable. This would also be true if we see a draw in the match or even a surprising victory of Swansea at Emirates.
Whether this betting prediction is going to be successful we will see on 11 May.
