Price boost: Arsenal to see Villa off without conceding a goal
Arsenal and Aston Villa square up at the Emirates Stadium for the early Sunday afternoon kick-off from the Premier League and any Ladbrokes customers tuning in ought to read on.
The bookmakers are enhancing Arsenal to win to nil from 8/11 out to 6/5 and this rates a pretty eye-catching offer given the Villans well-documented woes in front of goal.
In fact, the last time that the Premier League’s lowest scorers hit the target, Christmas shopping was still on most blokes’ agendas as Manchester United were held 1-1 at Villa Park on December 20th.
For the mathematicians out there, that’s a miserable run of five barren league matches totally eight hours and 42 minutes.
Although Villa have scraped past Championship Blackpool and Bournemouth 1-0 and 2-1 in the FA Cup during this leanest of patches,
Lambert’s men have only struck a total of four goals in 11 away matches in the top flight.
It’s not even as if there’s the feeling Lambert’s men have been particularly unlucky in front of goal, as they simply don’t create enough meaningful chances, as their divisional low 60 shots attests.
These are all damning figures which make the Gunners very worthy 1/4 favourites for the straight victory, but heap piles of appeal onto this fantastic price boost.
If for some quirky reason you are still not convinced, then consider the excellent form of Arsenal who are searching for their fifth consecutive win in all competitions and their third straight win to nil in the Premier League.
Champions Manchester City were the latest to feel Arsenal’s clinical side, going down 2-0 at the Etihad no less, while Stoke were defeated 3-0 at the Emirates before that.
