Arsenal vs Blackpool predictions and betting tips for this week’s Carabao Cup match at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal always rotate players for this competition but they did play a relatively strong side in the last round. How many changes with Emery make?
Premier League side Arsenal will expect to make it through to the next round of the League Cup here, but Blackpool know they have nothing to lose and should have a go at Arsenal. The banker bet could be an Arsenal win to nil.
The Gunners have made a strong start to life under Unai Emery but were held to a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace at the weekend, ending their run of 11 straight victories. That result shouldn’t stop them beating League One Blackpool here though and the visitors are as big as 33/1 with Bet Victor to cause a shock and win this match. The first of our betting tips for this clash is Arsenal to win to nil, that is because of their rock solid form and also because they to tend to see of teams from the lower leagues quite comfortably at the Emirates Stadium. THey have beaten Doncaster and Reading ‘to nil’ in recent seasons, however Brentford did score in the last round.
As is the norm with Premier League sides in the Carabao Cup, Arsenal will make changes to their line-up here so we need to think more carefully about our goalscorer betting tips. Danny Welbeck was superb against Brentford in the last round and it’s expected he will start this tie once again. Alex Iwobi started against Brentford but has broken into the first team plans in recent weeks, he has been in good form and if he does start this match then he goes down as the next of our football tips for the clash on the anytime scorer market.
Given that we’re already predicting an Arsenal win to nil in this fixture, we could also back that up with a correct score betting tip. Arsenal rarely hammer teams in this competition because of the changes that get made so it’s hard to see this game ending up something like 4-0 or 5-0 to the Gunners. Instead we can look to past home League Cup ties against lower league opposition and if Emery plays a team as strong as he did against Brentford then another three goals for Arsenal could be the answer for our correct score predictions.
