After combing through the upcoming fixtures in all four of England’s top professional divisions, we’ve pulled out a choice bet from each of the league’s with Mesut Ozil’s new side Arsenal topping the bill.
It’s not just the arrival of Real Madrid mega star Ozil which plumps up Arsenal’s chances of a road win at Sunderland, though the introduction of the silky German does help.
Since suffering an opening-day nightmare at home to Aston Villa, the Gunners have reacted by pummelling Fenerbahce over two legs to make the Champions League proper, while winning consecutive Premier League games, including the north London derby.
Just two points dropped from their opening five Championship fixtures already gives Harry Redknapp’s star-studded QPR squad the look of champions in the making.
In stark contrast Lee Clark’s Birmingham have only managed four points from 15 on offer and don’t look capable of stopping Rangers extending their perfect start at Loftus Road to three wins from three.
Coventry’s false league position, due to their 10-point penalty for financial irregularities, masks a team in unbeaten form of five straight games since an opening day-defeat.
They’ve been particularly impressive in their new home surroundings of Northampton’s Sixfields Stadium, winning two out of three, scoring an average of just over 3.5 goals per game.
Visitors Gillingham, meanwhile, are winless in eight games in all competitions, averagely conceding exactly two goals per game from their six opening League One fixtures.
Table-propping Accrington visit Hartlepool in this bottom of the entire football league clash.
When you take a peek at the amount of goals mustered between these strugglers it’s not difficult to see why either.
In their six league games to date Hartlepool have found the opposition net just once, while James Beattie’s Stanley side have racked up the sum total of three goals.
