Bet on Villa vs Arsenal – Wenger to triumph in French battle
Arsene Wenger can win the battle of the French bosses and leave Aston Villa with the three points to put a miserable week behind them and get their Premier League title aspirations back on track.
Arsenal’s betting odds are 6/5 to beat Aston Villa and they have the best away record in the Premier League this season, having taken 14 points from their seven games on the road.
Meanwhile, despite losing four of their last six games in all competitions, Arsenal are going in search of their fourth successive away victory in the top flight.
They can also count Villa Park as one of their favourite hunting grounds as they have not lost away to Aston Villa in last 11 seasons.
However, if Arsenal are to secure maximum points then they will have to do something which fellow title contenders Chelsea and Manchester United have failed to do this season, which is beat Aston Villa away from home.
Villa have only triumphed once in their last 23 league matches with Arsenal, but have proved tough to beat at home against all opposition in recent times.
The Midlanders have only lost once at home in the league in 2010, but have become draw specialists by sharing the points in ten of their 16 games.
Gerard Houllier’s team are 23/10 to beat Arsenal, with the draw given the same price.
Team to Score Last
However, the best betting opportunity could be the 4/5 on offer that Arsenal score the last goal of the game.
Arsenal have a knack of scoring at the death and have netted seven goals in the last ten minutes of their 14 Premier League outings this season.
Meanwhile, they have scored the final goal of the game on nine occasions.
In contrast, Villa have often conceded leads and have thrown away 12 points from winning positions this season, which is more than any other Premier League team.
