Expect A Goal Fest When Sutton United Host Arsenal

The natives are growing restless in North London as Arsenal again look set to fall short of expectations this season and they can ill-afford to lose Monday night's televised FA Cup fifth round clash with Sutton United....

  • Arsenal's past 18 away games have produced 72 goals
  • 12 of Arsenal's last 18 away matches have gone over 3.5 goals
  • Olivier Giroud has scored 12 goals in 12 FA Cup starts for Arsenal

The Story So Far

The Gunners have lost three of their last four games in all competitions to sit in their favourite position of fourth in the Premier League table and their Champions League campaign is as good as over at the last-sixteen stage again after they were thrashed 5-1 by Bayern Munich in the first leg of their tie on Wednesday night.

The failure to progress ensures Arsene Wenger is fielding questions about his future at the club and the Arsenal manager will surely have to put out a strong team at Gander Green Lane, albeit Laurent Koscielny is a doubt for the match.

The Gunners are 2/11 for victory (Bet 365) against non-league Sutton, who have upset the odds to beat Cheltenham, AFC Wimbledon and Leeds already this term, with Paul Doswell's men currently 18/1 to cause an almighty upset.
Match Odds:

Recent Form

The 3G pitch at Gander Green Lane has been of great benefit to Sutton as they have lost just three times at home all season but their form during 2017 is something of a concern.

Sutton have won only three times during this calendar year, with two of those victories coming in the FA Cup, and three defeats in a row has led them to slide down the National League table.

They can forget about their league worries on Monday though as they host an Arsenal side that has lost just one of the past nineteen FA Cup matches. This competition has often provided blessed relief for Wenger and Arsenal have eased past Preston 2-1 and Southampton 5-0 in this year's edition.

Goals Galore

There could be a glut of goals again as Arsenal's past eighteen away games have produced 72 goals (average of four goals per game). Twelve of those eighteen have produced at least four goals and over 3.5 goals is an even-money punt for Monday (Bet Victor).

For the more ambitious, over 4.5 goals has paid out eight times on the road this term and is a 23/10 shot this week.

Olivier Giroud could be the man to set Arsenal on their way to victory as he has scored twelve goals in his last twelve FA Cup starts. The French striker has found himself out of favour of late but he could be restored to the starting line-up here and he is 7/2 to be first goalscorer (Paddy Power).
