Team News – Arsenal
The locals moved up to fifth in the Premier League at the weekend with a win, and although things haven’t gone swimmingly for the Londoners so far, they’re level on points with last season’s champions Chelsea, and a place in the top-four. There’s plenty of football ahead of us, including the all-important winter period, but catching early leaders Manchester City already looks to be a big ask, The Citizens nine points better off after nine games played.
Arsenal boosted their chances in fine style on Sunday, hammering Everton 5-2 at Goodison Park. The Toffees have been miserable all season, but Sunday’s loss ranks amongst their worst performances so far. Rooney and Niasse were both on target for the beaten side, Gueye sent off on 68 minutes for a second bookable offence. Monreal, Ozil, Lacazette, Ramsey and Sanchez were on the scoresheet for Arsenal. The win was expected, given Everton’s recent results, but the manner in which Arsenal achieved it deserves our respect.
Football fans were impressed, as were bookmakers, who move to price a home win on Tuesday at 1/4, a price available with most firms. That quote prices average punters out of a play, even in accumulators, meaning we must work harder for our slice of the value. Take a shot at the handicap market in your match predictions and betting tips, where you’ll find Arsenal -1 at 4/6 (Coral), or -2 at 17/10, best price with Paddy Power.
Team News – Norwich
Norwich City fans were also cheering in the Championship at the weekend, extending their recent unbeaten run with a hard-fought 1-0 win away to Ipswich. That victory was achieved thanks to a goal from James Maddison, the scorer keeping his cool in a crowded box to fire in his third of the season. In an entertaining derby match, Ipswich passed up a number of great opportunities, and will know they only have themselves to blame for leaving empty-handed.
Manager Daniel Farke spoke to the press at full-time about just how sweet the win was for everyone connected to the club, labelling it special, and fully deserved on the balance of play. Taking particular pride in the second-half performance, where they created the bulk of their chances, the boss thought his players gave a fantastic support the win they deserved.
This will be the first meeting of these teams at this venue since 2016, when the pair shared the top-flight. Norwich were unable to score that day, sinking to a 1-0 loss, Danny Welbeck making the difference on the hour mark. The visitors are fancied to better that here, priced at 6/10 to get at least one goal, or 5/4 to draw another blank – both prices available with William Hill. An away win is there to be shot at, a chunky 10/1 available with most firms, including Coral.
Arsenal vs Norwich – Carabao EFL League Cup Tips and Betting Predictions
Arsenal will claim this, and they have a real chance of winning the trophy outright and starting the season off on solid ground. There’s no value in the match prices, so we’re going to take a shot at something a bit bigger and go Arsenal to win to nil at 6/4 with Paddy Power. That’s a nice offer, given the 90-minute odds, and goes in as the best of our betting tips at the Emirates. Worth a spot in your Tuesday evening multiples.
A jab at the correct score will give us more to shout about, and we’re having 3-0 Arsenal as the best of our predictions there. Odds compilers appear to be thinking along the same lines, giving our selection as second favourite. Follow our thinking and get 9/1, again best price when getting your money down at Paddy Power.
