Premier League: Arsenal vs Stoke City

Arsenal vs Stoke City Betting Tip and Predictions. In the 5th round in Premier League Arsenal take on Stoke City.

Arsenal stand at the 6th position with only two wins after four matches and they have to improve their performance in order to still stay in a race to win the title. The main problem for home side is their attack. Arsenal have managed to hit the net only three times on four matches. After surprising defeat in the first round against West Ham, Arsenal is still undefeated and they are big favorites to take first three points at Emirates Stadium, upfront their supporters.

Stoke City is one of the few teams in Premier league without win (0-2-2) and they still looking for the first win this season. Visitors showed in the last season that they are fully motivated when they are playing against teams from the top of the table. They have nothing to lose and I believe that they will try to make a surprise and get first three points. Shaqiri moved from Inter to Stoke City and could make his debut against Arsenal.

Arsenal vs Stoke City Betting Tip and Predictions

Arsenal is a big favorite to win this game and they want to do it because their fans. I’ve already wrote about connections between Stoke City and Bet365. Coates family are the owners of Stoke City, while Peter Coates is one of the richest persons in British football, so I personally avoid to bet when that team play. Interesting are matches between Arsenal vs Stoke from the last two seasons when we’ve seen all home wins.


However, Arsenal is a favorite and should win this game, but I won’t be surprised if they fail to win. It’s better betting option to bet on goals, at least three.

Arsenal vs Stoke City Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.65 (Bet365)
