Premier League is the most important focus for all English teams, but
how are things playing out for Arsenal? Here, Peter Watton from
betting specialists OddsMonkey gives
us his expert insight and predictions for this season.
2019–20 season is underway, and we’re starting to get some real
insight into how the final Premier League table will shape up. This
year, after several disappointing seasons, Arsenal have shown some
improvement under new manager Unai Emery and have set their sights on
a fourth-place finish in May. But can they do it?
Chances of a top four finish
The retirement of
Arsene Wenger is now looking like it was in the best interests for
the club. Since taking over, Emery seems to have improved the team,
especially this season, with only one loss so far. And with
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looking like he might be the League’s top
scorer with seven goals already, Arsenal are in good stead to do
With that in mind,
things are looking bright for the Gunners, with an 8/11 chance of
them finishing in the top four. This is a promising outlook that puts
them as third favourite to qualify for the Champion’s League, just
behind Liverpool and Man City, both at 1/500. So, placing your bets
on them landing one of the top spots could be promising.
But Arsenal aren’t
without competition, because Chelsea (5/6) and Leicester City (3/1)
could both be in with a chance of stealing a place in the Champion’s
League as well, with only one point less than Arsenal at this stage
in the season. So, the team are going to have to be on top form if
they’re going to maintain their current spot. These could make for
some exciting games later in the season, too.
Chances of a Premier League win
If you’re thinking of
putting your money on Arsenal winning the title this season, I’d
say you’re best spending it elsewhere. Despite some recent great
signings this summer, with the likes of Dani Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe
and Kieran Tierney joining the team, it’s looking unlikely that
Arsenal will manage to bag the top spot at the end of the season,
with odds at 75/1. Again, that’s behind Premier League favourites Man
City (11/8) and Liverpool (4/6), who look like the surefire
favourites to win the title.
Things aren’t all bad
for Arsenal. They’ve got a good team behind them and if they can keep
up their current performance, they’re likely to reach the Champions
League come May. Although it’s looking unlikely that Arsenal will
become this year’s champions, they definitely have enough about them
to finish the season in third place.
