Arsenal Predictions for the Upcoming Games
The EPL has already completed its first 3 weeks of the ongoing 2021/22 summer season. The top two North London clubs are currently at the North and South pole of the English Premier League table. Nuno Santo’s Tottenham Hostpur sits first on the points table, while Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal is last.
While Tottenham Hostpur is likely to maintain its current position on the table, however, to fans’ dismay, Arsenal is in the relegation spot after G.W. 3.
With no scores from Arsenal yet, the team will hope to clinch their first points of the season when they face Norwich in G.W. 4 on Saturday, September 11.
Arsenal F.C. Vs. Norwich City
The odds are in Arsenal’s favor for the upcoming match against Norwich City. Arsenal is expected to host Norwich in their G.W. 4 opening, and the fixtures are tilting to the club’s favour.
The upcoming clash on September 11 has been termed “relegation derby” since both Arsenal and Norwich are at the bottom of the English Premier League points table. Unfortunately, none of the teams has won a single game this year. Fans of both sides are already furious at their team’s awful starts.
Hopefully, this is the chance for Arsenal F.C. to redeem itself. Once the golden team of England, Arsenal’s performance and the line-up have declined in the last decade. This season has been challenging for players and supporters of the team as Arsenal has hit their all-time-low with three back-to-back losses.
Even though fans expected a defeat against Machester City and Chelsea, the team’s G.W. 1 loss against the newly-promoted upcoming Brentford was appalling. With the current chain of events, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s days seem to be ending at the wheel of the fan’s cherished England club.
As Arsenal F.C. enters its match against Norwich City, a win is much-needed after the team’s atrocious run in the Premier League so far. However, fans are confident in the Gunner’s ability to flip the 2021/22 points table.
The newly-promoted Brentford have faced three tough opponents, including Manchester City, Liverpool, and Leicester City. Fans agree that their next opponent may be a comparatively easy one, but odds are still with Arsenal on this one.
Three prominent U.K. betting sites Ladbrokes, Betway, and Bet365 UK, have predicted Arsenal to be the winner. The Arsenal predictions line-up features Ramsdale (G.K.), Gabriel, White, Smith Rowe, Saka, Cedric, Maitland-Niles, Tierney, Aubameyang, Lokonga, and Odegaard.
While the match can swing in any direction due to the poor form of both teams, Arsenal F.C. has a better team on paper. The last time Norwich won a game against Arsenal was in 2012. So, if you are sitting on the fence regarding this match, Arsenal with its past glory and a strong team might just prove to be the dark horse of this season. The underdog is always the bookmaker’s favourite!
Burnley Vs. Arsenal
The Burnley Vs. Arsenal is supposed to take place on September 18. The last game between the two teams in the EPL Season 2020/21 occurred in March and ended with a 1-1 draw. Since then, Arsenal has won 10 of 13 of their meetings, and Burnley won 1 and 2 matches that ended in a draw.
The predictions for this game can only be declared after the results of the Arsenal Vs. Norwich game.
