Arsenal have been in red hot form lately as the Gunners look to get another win at home against Stoke City. The North London club has put together some amazing performances and they will look for that form to continue this weekend. Stoke on the other hand are in a relegation battle for sure and they will need to get any points as they possibly can or it will be tough for them.
Stoke have managed to lose game they were getting points from or even winning last season and that is a cause of problem for the side. That being said they are ninth but they are still not very far from the drop zone as the ladder is very close near the bottom this season. With that in mind, this will be a very tough fixture for them since they are away from home and they are up against an Arsenal side that are very determined and will be focussed.
Arsenal will have been very reliant on the services of Alexis Sanchez lately and he has been living up to it very well. The Chilean superstar has been scoring for fun lately and I expect him to continue his rich form as he steps up against Stoke. This should be an easy game for the Gunners and I expect them to have no problem in winning.
As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a good enough price on Arsenal to pick them but I think there is still value in this game in the form of the number of goals being scored. We are getting a good price on the over 2.5 goals and with the form that Alexis Sanchez has been in, I think he alone could beat that so this seems to be a sure bet if you ask me.
