Today’s top football prediction comes from the English Premier League with the London derby between Fulham and Arsenal. Van Persie has been scoring like crazy in recent months, in fact, he has been carrying the entire Arsenal side on his shoulders. He brought another win for the team last Saturday as Arsenal defeated QPR by 1-0. Meanwhile, Fulham have also been on the rise lately with two consecutive draws away from home against the likes of Chelsea and Norwich. Can they possibly claim all three points tonight?
Arsenal are practically guaranteed to get on the score sheet here with a machine like RVP in front. He netted 35 league goals last year, just one short of Alen Shearer’s all time record of 36. It’s almost impossible for defenders to stop him right now. But on the other end of the pitch, Arsene Wenger has to deal with a lot of injuries to some key defenders including Vermaelen, right back Sagna, left backs Gibbs and Santos, goalkeeper Fabianski, midfielders Wilshere and Diaby.
With all these key injuries, it will be a shame for Fulham not to take advantage. Given all the problems Arsenal have in defense, it’s almost a certainty that the Cottagers will manage to score in front of their own fans here. In fact, we expect them not to lose this game. But the best football betting tip for the game between Fulham and Arsenal is for both teams to score, a.k.a. Goal/Goal which the bookies offer at 1.90.
Betting Verdict: Goal/Goal @ 1.90
Fulham to Win @ 4.00 (Value Bet)
