Huddersfield v Arsenal Betting Tips
The final day of the Premier League season is always a time for reflection but that feeling has been multiplied several times for everybody connected with Arsenal.
After almost 22 years in charge of the Gunners, Sunday’s trip to Huddersfield is Arsene Wenger’s last game as Arsenal manager. Although many fans have been looking forward to this day for some time given the team’s lack of competitiveness at the sharp end of the EPL, there will be sadness as the club says goodbye to a man who revolutionised English football.
While Wenger is looking to go out on a high his opposite number, David Wagner, wants to celebrate Huddersfield’s successful fight against relegation. The Terriers go into Sunday’s match in a worrying position but are desperate to give their fans one last big performance to cap their first campaign and safety in style.
Arsenal to Spoil the Terriers’ Party
Arsenal fans have a list as long as their arm of things for the new manager to fix. Wenger has achieved incredible things at the North London club and is rightly lauded for the style of football which he advocates but Arsenal have had a soft underbelly for far too long.
Opposition teams know that their chances of beating Wenger’s sides are significantly increased if they try to make the game a physical battle, something that’s been made all the clearer by Arsenal’s woeful away record at the end of this season.
Huddersfield will do everything they can to knock Arsenal off their rhythm. The Terriers will be snapping at the heels of their opponents and try to deny them the space required to work their magic but we think Wenger will be able to leave on a high.
Arsenal were at their brilliant best when putting five past Burnley last weekend in Wenger’s final game at the Emirates. It felt as though a weight had been lifted around the club (even if the initial story that Wenger walked of his own accord appears to be untrue) and we expect that good feeling to carry into Sunday’s match which Arsenal look a very good price to win at $1.78 with Unibet.
Huddersfield to Make a Game of It
Very few people expected Huddersfield to have enough about them to remain in the Premier League. That they have given themselves a fighting chance of remaining in the division is impressive enough but Wagner’s men have shown that they are not here to make up the numbers.
The Huddersfield manager will have his players incredibly well drilled for what could be a thoroughly entertaining match. The Terriers certainly have the combination of talent and motivation to make life difficult for Arsenal which is why we recommend betting on both teams to score at $1.62 with bookmaker.com.au.
It may also be worth taking a slightly bigger risk and betting on Huddersfield to score the game’s first goal at $2.72 with Crownbet. They’ll be incredibly motivated to get off to a strong start but could just find that their lack of quality relative to Arsenal means it’s the away side who leave the John Smith’s Stadium with the three points.
Mooy to Set Out World Cup Claims
Aaron Mooy’s recent form has been more than a little concerning for Socceroos fans. Everybody in Australia was hopeful that their one regular starter in the EPL would bring quality and experience to the national team ahead of the World Cup but Mooy has struggled for long periods.
Fortunately, the former Western Sydney Wanderers and Melbourne City midfielder has returned to something approaching his best. He could, therefore, give Bert van Marwijk even more reason to be cheerful by scoring against Arsenal at $5.50 with Bet365.
