Stop Delap, Stop Stoke - Free 20 Bet

Last updated : 26 February 2010 By Paddy Power

Stoke have beaten Arsenal already this season to go with last season’s league win, in fact Arsenal haven’t won at Stoke since 1990 so those fans have reason to be nervous. Despite past history Paddy Power still favour Arsenal at 8/11 and you have to think that if this one comes in then the team will definitely feel they are in with a chance of the big prize. The draw is a 5/2 shot which Arsenal will not go looking for but worse teams than Arsenal have come away with less this season.

If there is one game Arsenal fans will be glad that Nicklas Bendtner starts it’s against Stoke. Everybody knows Stoke’s secret weapon which makes it not so secret anymore but Rory Delap’s long throws are like cannon balls into opposition penalty area, so Bendtner’s height could prove vital at both ends of the field. He can do to the Stoke defence what their attackers will do to Arsenal and that’s put himself about and try and bundle in a goal, he’s the 5/1 joint favourite along with Eduardo and Cesc Fabregas to score the first goal. The shortest priced Stoke player is a 7/1 chance to the opening goal.

Arsenal will go to The Britannia determined to avoid a repeat of the FA Cup match and now have a clear objective and that it is winning The Premier League. The Gunners have scored on every visit to The Britannia since 1990 so it looks likely they’ll do it again on Saturday evening then you think how many times do Arsenal have to play Stoke to know how to defend the long throws? A reverse of the FA Cup scoreline and a 3-1 win for Arsenal this time is 11/1.
