Some of the most interesting games of the Premier League feature teams from opposite ends of the table, with completely different objectives – just like the game we’re seeing on Saturday between Hull and Arsenal.
Hull City have been very surprising so far, gathering 7 points, but will they manage to win any points against the Gunners on home ground?
Hull City vs Arsenal
If they maintain their current form, they might just be able to do that. Speaking about Hull’s lack of transfer activity, lack of squad depth or inexperienced manager is almost entirely obsolete – the team started the new season just fine and is not concentrating on achieving the dreaded 40 point target.
So far this season, they have a win (2-1 over Leicester on opening day) and a loss against high-flying Man United. They seem to motivate themselves quite well against big teams – a thing Arsenal must be careful for.
Speaking of Arsenal, the Gunners are picking up speed after just winning 1 point after their first two games. Their attacking players are slowly entering top form, which will make them especially hard to stop.
Whenever Ozil or Sanchez feel like playing at the top of their game, Arsenal not only wins but wins in style – a thing they will surely want to do on Saturday as well.
The squad doesn’t accuse fatigue just yet, but playing against PSG in midweek might mean that they won’t be able to maintain a high tempo for the whole 90 minutes against Hull.
Hull City vs Arsenal Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, we fancy Arsenal to win this. For those of you looking for simple, sure bets – go for Arsenal to score or Arsenal +0,5.
For those looking to risk, a solid 2 or even a handicap win are things to consider, although the latter could be a little far-fetched.
A thing far more recommended would be Arsenal to win and possession to be on their side – due to the fact that the home team is infamous for playing counter-attacking football.
Result/Goals – Arsenal & Over 2.5: 2.5 or 6/4
