Arsenal welcome Swansea to the Emirates on Monday night and the Gunners are available at odds of no bigger than 1/3, while Swansea can be backed at best odds of 11/1 with BetVictor, and the draw at 5/1 with Bet365.

The Swans beat Arsenal 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium back in November courtesy of late goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Bafetimbi Gomis, after Alexis Sanchez had opened the scoring for the visitors, while they drew 2-2 at the Emirates last season.

In fact, they only lost 1-0 at the Emirates last season and beat Arsenal 2-0 in North London the season before, so BetVictor may have been a touch generous with their offer of 11/1 here – the Swans have won 6 of their last 10 league games.

But we prefer to play the percentages and back the ‘double chance’ – a Swansea win or a draw at 11/4, also with BetVictor, is the recommendation, while we fancy a speculative bet on the 0-1 away win at 28/1 with Betfred, who refund Correct Score bets on all televised games that finish 1-1. The Swans have won four of their last ten Premier League away games and all were by a 0-1 scoreline. Let’s also take the best 1-1 odds on offer, which are 11/1 with Bet365, who refund losing Correct Score bets on all games that finish 0-0.

Danny Welbeck has scored three goals in four Premier League games against Swansea and we suggest backing him to score the first goal at 5/1 with Ladbrokes, while Swansea’s Ki Sung-Yueng has scored eight times this season and at 28/1 with Bet365 he is worth an each-way bet (as short as 16/1 elsewhere).

Remarkably, 21 of the last 22 goals in this fixture (in all competitions) have been scored in the second half of the match, and so we suggest betting that the second half has more goals than the first half – take BetVictor’s 23/20.
