Premier League: Gunners in style

There are a couple more Premier League games to watch Sunday, and after the pyrotechnics of the Manchester derby yesterday the first match looks like being a touch more one-sided.

Arsenal host Southampton in the opener today, and are widely expected to win. The hosts are in the middle of a good run – they put CSKA Moscow to the sword on Thursday after beating Stoke 3-0 the previous weekend. The Gunners have beaten all the teams below them in the league at home, and have scored plenty of goals in the process.

Southampton, by contrast, have hit a wall. They have won just one game in their last 18 league games, losing their last two 3-0.

We think Arsenal will win in style, and will take the 4/1 on offer than they do so by more than two goals.

The second match is a London derby, with West Ham traveling across the city to take on Chelsea.

The Hammers could be buoyed by a win over Southampton last weekend, but now go to Stamford Bridge where they haven’t won since September 2002.

The Blues have had a difficult defence of last year’s title and have lost five of their last seven games, as many as they lost all last season.

All that said, Chelsea are sure to want to mark the death of former club favourite Ray Wilkins with a strong performance.

Blues striker Alvaro Morata has started to show some form of late, scoring in his last two games. We look for him to continue scoring, and will take the 9/2 that he nets twice.
