Today's Best Bet: Monday, October 21


Leigh Copson: Back Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score anytime & Arsenal to beat Sheffield United @ 7/4 bet365
* Odds correct at 10:57 BST on 16/10/2019

If you would have told Arsenal fans prior to the season that their team would emerge from the October international break in third place in the Premier League table and one point behind last season’s champions, Manchester City, they would have probably bitten your hand off. However, they are probably finding it hard not to be disappointed with how things have gone so far.

The Gunners have suffered only one league defeat, away to Liverpool, but had they not thrown away points on several occasions they would be ahead of City right now and hot on the heels of the league-leader Merseysiders. Woeful defending forced them to settle for a point at home to Tottenham Hotspur, they threw away a two-goal lead at Watford before clinging on to a point, and there also had to be some disappointment surrounding the 1-1 draw away to a Manchester United side who have made a miserable start to their 2019/20 campaign. They have also failed to string together back-to-back league wins since August so, as you can see, while Arsenal are third in the table it has not exactly been a brilliant start for them.

Sheffield United, on the other hand, have made a somewhat promising start to life back in the top tier of English football. The Blades have won just twice so far in the league, at home to Crystal Palace and away to Everton, but they earned an excellent 2-2 draw at Chelsea in late August and made table-toppers Liverpool work for the 1-0 win when they visited Bramall Lane late last month. They are proving to be a tough nut to crack and, as we all know full well, when it comes to Arsenal this is the sort of match where they have tended to trip up over the years. And when you consider that the Gunners have won just once on their travels in the league so far, that heightens the sense that perhaps we could see a shock result here.

I certainly would not be surprised to see the Blades spring an upset on Monday night, but my confidence in that happening is dented considerably by the fact that they have lost three of their four home games so far and have netted only two goals in front of the home fans. Are they really in a position to capitalise on any possible ‘travel sickness’ for the Gunners? I am not so sure, and I am not confident that they can deny Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for 90 minutes either.

The Blades were able to keep out that lethal Liverpool attacking trio a few weeks back, but Aubameyang has arguably been on another level to Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino so far. The Gabon striker failed to find the back of the net against Bournemouth prior to the international break, but he has drawn a blank on only two occasions in the Premier League this season while netting seven times in eight appearances. That is a strike-rate that I simply cannot ignore for this one, so I am going to back Aubameyang to fire Arsenal to an important away win.
