Arsenal and Huddersfield Town go head-to-head in the Premier League on Wednesday night after experiencing contrasting fortunes from their respective fixtures on Sunday afternoon.
There was late joy for the Gunners at Turf Moor as Alexis Sanchez converted a stoppage time penalty to give Arsene Wenger’s men all three points against Burnley, while it was heartache for Huddersfield as Raheem Sterling’s late winner gave league leaders, Manchester City, victory at John Smith’s Stadium.
Arsenal, then, will go into this match in good spirits and in fine form, for they have been beaten in just one of their last nine Premier League fixtures, with Wenger’s men coming out on top in six of their last seven matches in the top tier.
With that in mind, it is little surprise that dabblebet go just 1/5 (1.20) that the Gunners get a seventh win in eight Premier League matches when they take on the Terriers, while the odds compilers offer 6/1 (7.0) that David Wagner’s charges claim a share of the spoils at Emirates Stadium.
Having come so close to taking something from Sunday’s showdown with Manchester City, Huddersfield will make the trip to north London in confident mood; however, since enjoying a stunning 3-0 win against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on their Premier League debut back in August, the Terriers have been terrible on their travels.
Indeed, Huddersfield have picked up just one point from their last five Premier League matches away from home, failing to find the net in each of those fixtures; that is a statistic that is sure to be a cause for concern for fans of the Terriers and dabblebet offer 12/1 (13.0) that the team from West Yorkshire buck the trend in spectacular style by beating Arsenal.
The Gunners have kept a clean sheet in six of their last nine Premier League matches and dabblebet’s 8/11 (1.72) quote on offer for Wenger’s men to keep Wagner’s charges at bay may well prove popular with punters, while the same firm offer a tempting 6/4 (2.50) that there are fewer than three goals scored when these rivals lock horns.
That particular selection would have seen punters profit from four of Arsenal’s last five games in all competitions, as well as in three of the last five fixtures that the Terriers have contested on their travels.
However, given Huddersfield Town’s wretched record on the road, though, better value may lie in dabblebet’s 4/5 (1.80) quote for Arsenal to win to nil ahead of Wednesday’s showdown in north London.
