Betting tips and match preview | Premier League

Arsenal welcome Swansea to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with both sides looking to register a win after the international break.

Arsene Wenger’s side come into this match on the back of a 1-0 win against Burnley, prior to the international break.

The Gunners left it late with a 93rd-minute winner from Laurent Koscielny enough to break Claret hearts.

Burnley put in an excellent defensive display at Turf Moor, Arsenal’s late siege on the Burnley goal was enough to get them all three points.

Back In Form

That result is an excellent one for Arsenal, with Liverpool failing to win there earlier in the season.

It was another great example of the mental strength within this Arsenal squad, in previous years they would have lost that type of fixture.

Despite losing their first game of the season to Liverpool, Arsenal have been outstanding this season, winning their last five matches.

They are the third highest scorers in the league, with the joint fourth best defence in the division.

Gunners Favourites

Arsenal are in excellent order in all departments of the pitch, they have also registered an unbeaten start in the Champions League.

They will go above Manchester City and Tottenham to the top of the Premier League with a win, although both sides have 3pm kick offs so that is dependant on results.

Their recent record against Swansea is poor, with three defeats in their last four league meetings.


Can Bob Bradley get his Swansea tenure off to a flyer?

Bradley Era Begins

Swansea travel to the Emirates Stadium on the back of a narrow 2-1 defeat against Liverpool at the Liberty Stadium.

Bob Bradley has been appointed the new Swansea manager, after what feels like months of speculation.

The hosts took the early lead through Leroy Fer in the 8th minute, to give Swansea the perfect start.

Goals from Roberto Firmino (54) and a late James Milner penalty (84), saw Liverpool record a fourth successive win.

Big Test For Bradley

Swansea find themselves in 17th place in the Premier League, 12 points and 14 places off their hosts after seven matches.

The former Le Havre coach becomes the first American to coach in the Premier League, with his first match against one of the Premier Leagues in form sides.

They have had a tough fixture list, with defeats against Manchester City, Liverpool, Southampton, Chelsea and Leicester and Arsenal now as well.

Swans Underdogs

Swansea come into this match as underdogs, they will be looking to avoid their sixth defeat of this new Premier League season.

This will be a tough fixture for both sides, with Swansea looking to impress their new manager and Arsenal looking to state their title credentials.

Swansea will be looking to continue their record against Arsenal, in 16 matches they have won 7, lost 7 and drawn 2.


Both teams are 5/6 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Arsenal are Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud at 3/1, with Lucas Perez at 7/2. For Swansea, Fernando Llorente is at 11/1 with Borja Baston and Gylfi Sigurdsson at 12/1.

The last time that these two sides met Swansea won 2-1 at the Emirates and the odds of the same result are 28/1.

Arsenal vs Swansea Odds

Tip 1 – Llorente to score first @ 11/1

Tip 2 – Arsenal to win 2-1 @ 8/1
