They may have left it late to finally grab a winner against Crystal Palace, but Arsenal fans will still be feeling a sense of optimism about this season, with a title winning campaign available at 11/2.
New signing Alexis Sanchez put in an encouraging performance at the Emirates, and will be fancied by many to get his name on the scoresheet a multitude of times this season.
And as the Chilean seeks his first goal for the Gunners, Ladbrokes are boosting the price from 6/1 to 8/1 that the former Barcelona man breaks the deadlock in Saturday’s game against Everton.
With three shots on target in the season opener Sanchez is clearly keen on having a pop at goal, and his average return in recent years point to a goal in the not too distance future.
During his three seasons in Spain, the forward averaged less than four shots per goal in La Liga in each campaign.
And with his first attempt on Tim Howard’s goal set to be his fourth of the campaign, surely now is the time for Alexis to properly announce himself to the Arsenal fans.
It was a shaky start for the Toffees, twice squandering a lead at newly promoted Leicester, being held to a 2-2 draw by Nigel Pearson’s side.
Roberto Martinez may be getting concerned about his side’s defensive frailties, having now conceded two or more goals in four of their last six competitive matches.
