Arsenal have been in rampaging mood since signing Mesut Ozil and although West Bromwich Albion are taken to breach the Gunners backline, the visitors’ clinical form in front of goal can send them to victory, with a 4-1 correct score at 22/1 the pick of the bets.
Arsene Wenger’s high flyers have been priced up as strong 7/10 favourites, with the draw available at 14/5 and the Baggies an 18/5 poke for victory.
Arsenal have won their last eight Premier League away games
Arsenal’s opening day 3-1 defeat at home to Aston Villa now is just a distant memory as Wenger has propelled his silky side to the Premier League summit after five straight league wins.
A visit to The Hawthorns, where they haven’t lost in their last six visits, shouldn’t hold any fears for punters predicting Arsenal’s winning streak to continue.
Layers of the visitors will point to the recent Capital One Cup between the teams, which ended 1-1, but it’s likely that an entirely different and more experienced starting eleven will be on show for Arsenal.
Arsenal have scored in their last 23 consecutive away games
Away season ticket holders at the north Londoners have certainly got their money’s worth, especially this year, with their team’s exciting performances on the road.
However, their switch to a more open attacking ethos since bringing in Ozil – which has yielded 14 goals in six games – has left them more vulnerable at the back.
The Gunners backline kept clean sheets in over half of their away games last season but they have conceded in all three of their Premier League fixtures this term and the confident Baggies, who sensationally beat Manchester United 2-1 last weekend, can find the net.
The 6/11 on both teams to score looks banker material, while correct score backers shouldn’t be put off by double figure quotes of 22/1 for a 4-1 victory.
West Brom’s Saido Berahino scored against Arsenal in the Capital One Cup
Fresh from finding the net at United last week, the onus will be on Berahino to bring the goals for West Brom as Victor Anichebe, Nicolas Anelka and Shane Long all are ruled out with injury.
The 7/2 on the talented youngster to bag at any time looks well worth piling in to.
