Arsenal host Sunderland tonight in the Premier League, still chasing a Champions League spot.
Liverpool’s win at West Ham last weekend means the spot in Europe’s elite is not in Arsenal’s hands, but the Gunners are unlikely to give up the chase until mathematically impossible.
And with goal difference potentially an issue, Arsenal may well look to put quite a few past the league’s weakest team.
Sunderland have never won at Arsenal in the Premier League, while the home side are unbeaten in 14 league games home and away. In fact, the Gunners have won three successive league matches at the Emirates, keeping clean sheets in all.
This all points to a home win, and a healthy one at that. With this in mind, we at Lap of the Odds HQ are going to side with Arsenal’s Chilean star and media darling Alexis Sanchez to claim the man of the match gong.
He is alarmingly short priced (13/8) to collect the plaudits with the likes of Paddy Power and Betfair, which serves to highlight the value on offer with Betfred’s 7/2.
Recommendation: Sanchez to be man of the match at 7/2, BetFred
