Swansea City will be looking to upset Arsenal once again when they visit the Emirates Stadium for Saturday’s Premier League clash.
Only Chelsea have won more league games at this ground than Paul Clement’s team, who are available at 13/1 (14.00) with SportPesa to come out on top in North London for the fourth time.
However, the Gunners have won 10 and lost none of their last 11 league fixtures on home turf, and are clear 1/5 (1.20) favourites to collect maximum points for the 11th game in a row.
Just one of the last 12 encounters between the sides has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 6/1 (7.00) on them cancelling each other out in this one.
After winning five of the first 10 Premier League meetings between the sides since gaining promotion back in 2011, the Swans soon established themselves as a real bogey side for Arsene Wenger’s side.
However, back-to-back league defeats last season have gone some way to undermining that tag, and current form makes another upset seem particularly unlikely.
The Welsh outfit have only won twice in 10 games against top flight opposition this campaign, losing four of their last five matches to make it five defeats and just one win in seven.
In fact, it would come as something of a surprise if the guests even managed a goal considering only rock bottom Crystal Palace have scored fewer than their six in nine so far, and including Tuesday’s EFL Cup defeat against Manchester United, Swansea have hit the net just four times in the last seven fixtures against Premier League opponents.
With seven clean sheets to their name in nine games, even odds (2.00) seem like solid value on Arsenal coming out on top without conceding against their goal-shy visitors.
