After shining in Arsenal’s last game, the winger is great value to score at anytime at 6/4 according to Phil Kitromilides
Arsenal play their first ever game in Vietnam as the Gunners continue their pre-season tour of the Far East this afternoon.
After a suitably impressive 7-0 demolition of an Indonesia Dream Team at the weekend, Arsene Wenger’s men take on the Vietnamese international side and William Hill price the north Londoners at just 2/9 (1.22) for the win.
An historic victory for the hosts is offered at 17/2 (9.50) with the draw available at 4/1 (5.00).
Of course a win for Arsenal is practically guaranteed irrespective of the importance of the encounter and ,as a result, finding any value in backing the Gunners is a tough ask.
For any reasonable prices one has to delve into the goal scorer markets and while Theo Walcott is offered at an unappealing 1/4 (1.25) to score at any time, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can be backed at the extremely tempting price of 6/4 (2.50).
The England forward was arguably the Gunners’ most impressive performer in their previous game despite not finding the back of the net himself.
His pace, strength and eye for goal will surely prove to be a serious problem for the Vietnamese defence and the price of 6/4 (2.50) for a talented attacking player to score at anytime against a considerably weaker team looks to offer punters excellent value.
