Competition: Premier League
Market: Emile Smith Rowe to score anytime
Odds: 12/5 @ 888sport
Smelling a real chance to extend on what has been a stellar run of form, Arsenal will welcome Watford to the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Arsenal might have endured a worrying start to the new season, they suddenly find themselves enjoying a very impressive purple patch. Skyrocketing their way up the table, Mikel Arteta’s side were last seen laying down another marker as they picked up a 2-0 victory away at Leicester last weekend. With the mood in their camp at a red-hot high, fans around north London will also be hugely excited by Emile Smith Rowe’s own eye-catching run of form. Although Arsenal’s homegrown star might have missed out on a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad earlier in the week, the 21-year-old has played a vital role in the Gunners’ 10-match unbeaten run across all formats. Once again finding the net against Leicester last time out, Smith Rowe has four goals in his last six appearances for Arteta’s men.
As for the visitors, while Watford might have stunned Everton with their turnaround 5-2 win last month, it appears that might have just been a minor boost for the Premier League returners. Once again tipped as a leading pick to be hit with an immediate Championship return, new boss Claudio Ranieri will be demanding an immediate response this weekend. Last seen getting hit with a 1-0 defeat at home against Southampton, Sunday’s guests will know that they face a stern test in north London. Losing three of their last four Premier League outings, a run highlighted by a 5-0 drumming against Liverpool on October 16th, the ex-Leicester manager has seen his side gain a reputation for their issues at the back. With Smith Rowe enjoying a real purple patch, the England U21 star should be smelling a real chance at the Emirates.
Bet: Emile Smith Rowe 12/5 to score anytime against Watford in Sunday’s Premier League matchup @ 888sport
