Our resident betting expert is tipping the German to net and Arsenal to extend their winning run against the Baggies at The Hawthorns.
Also in this edition, find out why you should back the Gunners’ capital rivals Tottenham to beat West Ham – and Chelsea to win by a single goal at Norwich City.
Arsenal’s club-record £42.5m signing Özil opened his Gunners account in a mesmerising display against Napoli on Tuesday night. The Germany international has already made four assists since moving to the north London side from Real Madrid. The Tipster is backing the 24-year-old to open his Premier League account at West Brom at tempting odds of 9/5.
There’s simply no keeping Arsène Wenger’s men down at the moment. Arsenal have responded from an opening day loss to Aston Villa by winning 10 games on the trot! The Gunners have won on their last two trip to The Hawthorns in the Premier League. Despite West Brom’s win at Old Trafford last weekend, the Tipster reckons Arsenal is the bet here at 4/5.
Tottenham, like their north London rivals, are also in fine form. Spurs have only suffered one loss in the top flight this season – and that was to Arsenal. The Hammers have failed to win their last eight away matches in the Premier League. Spurs have emerged victorious in eight of their last 10 games against West Ham in all competitions. So the smart money is on Spurs to win at 4/9.
Chelsea have been far from convincing in the Premier League this term. Despite an emphatic 4-0 win in Bucharest in midweek, the Tipster can see the west London side struggling at Carrow Road. Chelsea have scored just once in their last two visits to the Canaries. The Blues were 1-0 winners last season, and the Tipster is backing Chelsea to win by a single goal at 23/10.
Juan Mata put in an encouraging performance in a 4-0 win against Steaua Bucharest in the Champions League on Tuesday night. The Spaniard earned praise from his team-mates and manager, and as a result should get a starting spot for the trip to Norwich. Mata scored the winner in this fixture last season, and the Tipster’s ambitious long shot for this edition is Mata to score first at 13/2.
