With some speculating that Arsenal may be in deep trouble with their upcoming battles versus Tottenham and Leicester, there’s still plenty of evidence that’s showing otherwise and that they can in fact overcome them both to the Premier League title.
This would be their first title since the 2002/2003 season but fans haven’t given up hope yet.
While many have just flat out given up on Arsenal winning the Premier League title for this season, many are hanging on to hope claiming that naysayers are just rivals or other managers hoping to crush the spirits of everyone who wants them to win. Jamie Carragher believes the gap is far too wide to fix now and that there’s far too much for them to do to come back.
The Southampton manager also shared those views stating that Arsenal was completely out of the title and it was more than likely going to be a fight between Tottenham and Leicester. Looking at this from a math perspective though, Arsenal is only 11 points behind the other leaders in the League for Leicester and only 6 behind Tottenham. So what does this mean for Arsenal? There’s one game in hand and they have an additional 21 points that they could earn before this season is officially over. Read more »
Soccer betting can be a great way to make some money as well as having some fun. But how do you choose the best ones? Here are three tips to help you choose the best ones
Always go for a reputed site. If the soccer betting site is a new one, you will be better off avoiding it. Opt for sites that have been in business for a couple of years. This will ensure that you are dealing with a site that has a history of paying his customers. The worst feeling is making a bet, winning it and not getting paid for it.
It is always a good idea to check what other people are saying about the betting site online. Just a quick search on Google will reveal what other people are saying on blogs as well as forums. You might want to search Facebook as well as Twitter for posts related to the soccer betting site. This will give you a better perspective on the betting site.
The appearance of the soccer site can also inform you about the trustworthiness of the site. Always go for a site that is professionally designed and not for one that appear to have been designed by a 12-year-old kid. Remember that you will be uploading money to the site before actually making your bet and you would not want to be scammed. Read more »

If we can quieten the little voice in our heads that nags us about potential injuries and loss of form, now is as good a time as any to place our bets on who will win the tournament; expect prices – particularly those of the favourites – to be squeezed in the coming weeks and months.
Here’s a quick overview of the main contenders: Read more »
Manchester City are taking on Manchester United this weekend and it will provide a great picture of the team that is likely to finish in the top four this season.
City are the favourites to qualify for the Champions League next season with odds of 3/10. United, who have been in terrible form over the last few months, at backed at a distant 4/1. Even though City themselves have been in a poor run of form as far as the Premier League is concerned, they can be comfortable knowing that they have the home advantage in this game.
United have already missed out on the top four in recent times, but City cannot afford to do the same at this stage. The club will be bringing in Pep Guardiola – one of the renowned managers in the world – next season and the former Barcelona manager will struggle to attract players if the club finds itself in the Europa league next season. Pellegrini is on his way out, but he is determined to do a great job in the remainder of the campaign. He has already led the club to Capital One Cup success, which is the second of his City regime, and the club has qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time in their history.
Aguero is rated at 6/5 to score at any time in the game. These are great odds given that the strikerhas been in fine form over the last 10 games. Aguero, however, has not scored since his two goals against Aston Villa in the 4-0 win a few weeks ago. Even though City win this game, it is unlikely to improve chances of winning the title. After only nine points behind table leaders Leicester City, the important objective for the club will now be to finish in the top four.
