Arsenal is gearing up to maintain their flawless beginning to the new Premier League season, as they prepare to host Fulham at the Emirates this Saturday.
Despite losing momentum in the title race last season, the Gunners seem rejuvenated and are determined to clinch their first English title since the legendary era of Arsene Wenger’s Invincibles.
Under Mikel Arteta’s leadership, Arsenal began their season with a tight 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest and followed it up with a 1-0 triumph over Crystal Palace, much to the delight of those who placed bets on that particular outcome.
Now, they’re set to face local rivals Fulham, who stunned many with their commendable performance last season by finishing in the top half of the league – a feat they hadn’t achieved since the 2011-12 season.
However, Marco Silva’s squad has had a mixed start this time around. They began with a win over Everton but suffered a 3-0 defeat to Brentford just last weekend.
Betting Overview When it comes to previous encounters, Arsenal dominated both meetings with Fulham last season. The bookmakers seem confident about Arsenal’s winning streak, with odds of 2/9 (Bet 365) favoring the Gunners for a third consecutive victory.
Fulham hasn’t managed to outplay Arsenal since 2012, and based on current odds, that trend seems likely to continue. The odds are stacked against Fulham at 13/1.
Betting Insights Although the odds are heavily leaning towards an Arsenal win, seeking alternative betting avenues might be wise.
