Betting Tip: Arsenal @ 19/20 with bet365

Stoke are having a decent season, with Mark Hughes’ team sitting seventh in the Premier League table and there’s a strong chance of the Potters bettering their eighth place spot from the last campaign.

However, City have managed to win just half of their home matches this term and four sides have left the Britannia with maximum points. This includes Watford, Crystal Palace, Liverpool and West Brom.

Some say that Stoke raise their game against the better teams at home, although they were barely able to land a glove on Liverpool in a recent Capital One Cup clash which means that the Staffordshire team are unlikely to reach the final.

Wednesday’s win against Norwich was fortunate in that Gary O’Neil got recklessly sent off in the first half, with Arsenal likely to be more disciplined for Sunday’s clash.

The Gunners twice came from behind at Anfield to lead 3-2 and it was only a late equaliser from Joe Allen which denied the London side.

However, there’s bundles of attacking invention, with Joel Campbell and Aaron Ramsey playing a supporting role to Mesut Ozil, while Olivier Giroud could yet finish top scorer.

The Arsenal defence might concede the odd goal in this game, although Arsene Wenger will be confident that his team can operate better against the Stoke attack and run up a few goals at the other end.

Aside from that blip at Southampton, the London side had won their last seven matches before Anfield and it’s worth taking them at William Hill’s 16/5 to claim three points with both teams scoring.
