The former Lyon forward is already bringing in much excitement for the Gunners and will be looking to impress on Saturday.

Arsenal take on Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium in Saturday’s Premier League late kickoff.

The Potters suffered a 1-0 opening day defeat at Everton and its left a lot of their fans worried how this season will pan out. They’ve sold players and have it all to do against an Arsenal side that did a double over them last term. LionsBet quote Stoke as underdogs at (4.45).

Last Friday’s narrow 4-3 victory was Arsenal’s first on the opening weekend in seven attempts. It was the perfect way to kick-off the season and Arsene Wenger will be confident his charges can get the job done again with a win here at odds of (1.85).

Odds of (3.85) are available with the same firm to see this game end in a stalemate.

Stoke have lost just once in their last seven home games against the Gunners but with early season struggles looking likely for them, their opponents are tipped to avoid defeat at odds of (1.18).

Arsenal have won four of their last five league encounters against Stoke and are priced at (1.40) to win either half.


Alexandre Lacazette could become the first player since Ian Wright in 1991 to score in his opening two league games for Arsenal. With fans already excited about his prospects this season, LionsBet offers the Frenchman to score first at (3.40) and (1.60) anytime.

Olivier Giroud’s winner against the Foxes was his 99th Arsenal goal. Should he score anytime at odds of (1.65), he would become the 19th player in the history of the North London outfit to reach half a century of goals.
