Third placed Arsenal travel to the Britannia Stadium on Saturday to take on a Stoke City side that are aiming for a strong finish to the Premier League season, and with strong home form, the 10/3 with Paddy Power on Tony Pulis’s side looks more than a hint of value for punters.
The Gunners have hit a little dip in form over the last two games, picking up just one point. They are now just three points ahead of fourth place Newcastle, so will be looking at this game on Saturday as a must win.
Arsene Wenger will look at his sides remaining fixtures as games they should win, with Norwich at home and West Brom away to come after this weekend.
Robin Van Persie was named the PFA player of the year on Sunday evening, a great accolade for the Dutch striker who has scored 27 goals in the Premier League this season. Van Persie will certainly be looking to finish the season strongly and perhaps hit the 30 goal mark.
Champions League football is vital for a team of Arsenal’s stature so Saturday’s game is massive for the North London side.
As for Stoke, they have had a very long campaign due to competing in the Europa League this season, which started in July.
