Troubled times at The Emirates

Notts County played Juventus in Turin on Thursday night in the opening of the Nuovo Stadium, and just two days later face they now face Walsall in a mid-table battle in League One. County's Chief Exec has publically spoken stating the congestion isn't ideal but the lure of playing one of the European giants was 'the chance of a lifetime'. Walsall come into the game 1 point behind their League One counterparts and are in decent form winning two of their last three (only losing to promotion hopefuls Brentford) & we fancy The Saddlers to claim a point at Meadow Lane. Last season these sides finished one league placing apart & we think there will be a similar outcome this term. Back Dean Smith's men to come away from Nottinghamshire with a Draw at 13/5.

Down in League Two, Shrewsbury face Hereford at Greenhouse Meadow. The Shrews have won four of their last six games in all competitions; with a 1-0 victory at promotion rivals Gillingham last weekend. On the same day, Hereford recorded their first victory of the season vs Dag & Red but it remains their only win in 11 league fixtures & on the road they haven't had success since March. We see Shrewsbury as a home banker for any multiples bets & they can continue their 11 match unbeaten home record at odds of 4/6.

(Arsene Wenger shows his frustration)
The game at The Emirates could prove crucial for Arsene Wenger who is enduring his most difficult time in management, this game could prove interesting for many reasons without necessarily being exciting. Arsenal have now failed to win in the league this season scoring just twice (in the 8-2) defeat to Manchester United, stretching back to last season they've now won just 2 of 14 games in the league & are severely lacking in confidence & star players. Wenger made late moves to sign Park Chu-Young, Andre Santos, Per Mertesacker & Mikel Arteta but it should take some time for these new players to be integrated into the team & they are certainly not a team to backed at this moment in time. They come up against Swansea City who have not even managed a single goal in their first Premier League season yet but have kept clean sheets in their last 2 outings after getting a potentially demoralising beating at the hands of Man City in their opener. New goalkeeper Michel Vorm has been outstanding (even in the 4-0 at City) & Swansea will not come to Arsenal attempting to win by playing an open, expansive & attacking game - they've lost centre back Alan Tate to a freak accident in a golf buggy & will turn up with men behind the ball in an aim to frustrate Arsenal & if the fans start to get on the Gunners players backs early on we could see a tense & tight game. We're happy to back Vorm to have another shutout without Swansea having the quality to score at the other end, backing No Goalscorer rather than 0-0 at the same price means you can also be paid out if the only goal is an own goal, do this at the available 14/1 & prepare for Wenger to take his frustrations out on those trusty water bottles!
