Huddersfield Town vs Arsenal Betting Tip
The atmosphere at The John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday is certain to be a mixture of celebration and reminiscing as Huddersfield Town celebrate their superb achievement of managing to stay in the Premier League on a shoestring budget, whilst Arsenal fans will be bidding farewell to one of the greatest managers of the modern era in Arsene Wenger. The game may well come second to emotion in this one, but both teams will be keen to go out on a high and Wenger will be determined to win his final game in charge of his beloved club.
- When: 3:00PM (UK), Sunday, May 13th, 2018
- Where: The John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield, England
Huddersfield Town have defied the odds by staying up this season and back to back draws against Manchester City and Chelsea have typified the resistance shown by this club. David Wagner has built a team stronger than the sum of its parts and he deserves all of the plaudits for his achievements. In 2015 the entire revenue of this club was £10.5m and now with their safety secured, they can expect to earn £290m in the next year, a quite stunning achievement. Huddersfield Town were excellent against Chelsea in their last match, but after a week of celebrations, Wagner has almost admitted that he doesn’t care what happens on the final day of the season.
Arsenal followed up their 5-0 win against Burnley, with yet another defeat away from home against Leicester City. The Foxes picked up a comfortable 3-1 win against Arsene Wenger’s side, a result which means Arsenal have now lost six of their last seven matches on the road. Whilst many fans will be glad to see the back of Wenger, there can be no argument over how much he has done for this club and how much he revolutionised the English game. Emotions are sure to be high on Sunday afternoon as English football bids farewell to its longest serving manager.
- Arsenal are the only side in the top four English leagues without an away point in 2018.
- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has nine goals and four assists in his 12 games since joining in January.
- This match will mark the end of Arsene Wenger’s near 22-year reign as Arsenal manager.
Huddersfield Town vs Arsenal Prediction
Arsenal have been terrible away from home this season, winning just three of their 18 games on the road in the Premier League. Despite that, I’m backing Arsenal to win this one. Huddersfield Town are rumoured to have been on a long couple of days of celebrations and they may come into this game a little less prepared than usual. David Wagner has admitted that the result doesn’t matter to him in this one, but you can be sure that Arsene Wenger will be desperate for a win in his final match.
Huddersfield Town vs Arsenal Betting Tips (NairaBet)
Arsenal are available at 1,571 to win this one, whilst a home win for Huddersfield Town is priced up at 5,25, with the draw just shorter odds at 4,25. I’m backing Arsenal to pick up their first point on the road in 2018 here and I think they could well do it comfortably. The 2,80 on Arsenal to win and BTTS looks like a solid bet to me, whilst Arsenal to win and over 2.5 goals at 2,10 also looks good money. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been in superb form since joining The Gunners in January and the 1,95 on him to score at anytime in this one looks like easy money.
