Arsenal will be eyeing their trip to Reading as an opportunity to pick up three points and stay in the top-four race, and the Tipster is backing Lukas Podolski to net at any time at the Madejski Stadium.

Our resident betting expert isn’t quite tipping another 12-goal thriller like the Capital One Cup clash earlier this season, but he does expect both sides to score and over 2.5 goals.

The Tipster is in adventurous mood, backing Arsenal to win from behind against Reading and Laurent Koscielny to score.

Podolski to score any time v Reading – 5/4

Arsène Wenger is hoping to have Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott fit and available for selection again. And while the duo could be ready to face the Royals, Podolski will certainly be called upon. The German is Arsenal’s joint top scorer in the Premier League this term with four goals. So The Tipster reckons Podolski to score any time is a good shout at 5/4.

Both teams to score in Reading v Arsenal – 4/6

Arsenal will be desperate to bounce back from last week’s Capital One Cup defeat at Bradford City. The Gunners have managed to keep one clean sheet in their last four attempts, while Reading have scored in every Premier League fixture at the Madejski Stadium this term – except a goalless draw with Norwich City. Both teams to score is good value at 4/6.

Over 2.5 goals and Arsenal to beat Reading – 6/5

Arsenal have scored at least two goals in their last six games against Reading in all competitions – and who can forget the 7-5 victory in the League Cup in October? The Gunners won each of those six games while Reading are on a five-game losing streak in the Premier League. The Tipster is backing over 2.5 goals and Arsenal to win at 6/5.

Arsenal to win from behind v Reading – 6/1

Wenger’s men have been in shaky form of late, epitomised by their shock loss to Bradford City. In that memorable 7-5 win at Reading in the League Cup, the Gunners fell 4-0 behind before finally turning the tie around. With confidence fragile, the Tipster reckons Arsenal to come from behind and win is worth a cheeky punt at 6/1.

The long shot: Arsenal’s Koscielny to score – 15/2

With Arsenal struggling for goals in recent weeks, it could well be a set-piece that sets them on their way. Laurent Koscielny is always a threat from corners, having netted twice this season, including at the Madejski earlier in this campaign. The Tipster’s ambitious long shot is Koscielny to score at any time at 15/2.
