Super Sunday Tips: Easy for Arsenal and tight Chelsea v Spurs tussle
After the colossal clash between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker in Cardiff last night, there are two more heavyweight bouts to get stuck into on Super Sunday.
Arsenal will be looking to continue their momentum against relegation-threatened Stoke City.
While at 4pm, two of the Premier League’s fiercest rivals go head-to-head as Chelsea host Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge.
We’ve spent the Easter weekend chewing the form instead of chomping on chocolate and come up with some top tips for both tussles…
Arsenal v Stoke City (1:30pm)
It’s not looking good for Stoke. The Potters are firmly rooted in the relegation zone following a seven-game winless run.
So a trip to the Emirates is the last thing Paul Lambert and co need. Arsenal have won 14 home matches in a row against sides outside the top-six.
They’ve scored 42 goals in that time. Stoke, on the other hand, have conceded 31 goals in nine matches against the European contenders so far this season.
Of those 31 goals, 12 have come within the opening half-hour. It’s 27/20 for the North Londoners to be leading after 30 minutes.
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is starting to find his feet in North London, too. The Gabon-international has bagged in his last two appearances for the Gunners.
Arsene Wenger’s side have won their last 15 matches against the Potters dating back to 1981.
Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur (4pm)
West London meets North London in the grandstand fixture of the week.
Both sides need a win to help their Champions League chances, but who’ll come out on top?
The Blues are unbeaten at Stamford Bridge against Spurs since Gary Lineker helped the Lilywhites to a 2-1 victory in 1990.
However, recent form shows that Antonio Conte’s men have only won five times in 18 matches in 2018. Mauricio Pochettino’s side, by contrast, have lost just once in their last 20 fixtures.
Taking all of that it account, the draw may be the way to go at 9/4.
Regardless of the score, we’re confident that there’ll be plenty of goalmouth action.
Neither side is short on firepower, and even without Harry Kane, Spurs should pack a punch through Son Heung-min.
And with goals expected at the Bridge, you can back Both Teams to Score at 3/4.
