Fulham v Arsenal: First Goalscorer Tip
Arsenal are hunting a 9th consecutive victory in all competitions on Sunday and the main threat to that sequence is Mitrovic. We can turn a profit if he scores at all, and land a hefty payout if he breaks the deadlock.
Fulham haven’t quite lived up to my expectations so far this season but one man who can hold his head up high is Aleksandar Mitrovic.
As great as Arsenal’s form is, he is the value in the first goalscorer market at best odds of 15/2 with Bet365. Back him each-way and get paid out at 1/3rd odds if he scores later in the match instead.
It isn’t just the Serbian’s 5 goals in 7 top flight appearances in 2018-19 which marks him out as great value. With a personal average of 4.4 shots per match, Mitrovic is ranking as the second most dangerous player in the division behind Sergio Aguero (5.4).
With 2.9 of those shots per game coming from inside the box we can also see that the majority are high-tariff attempts. This bodes well for a continuation of his form, perhaps against the Gunners.
