Arsenal Predictions For 21/22
Manager Mikel Arteta is under pressure to deliver this season after Arsenal’s disappointing 8th place finish last time. However, Spurs “gaining” European competition will at least leave Arsenal free to concentrate on the Premier League more than their north London rivals.
The days of Arsenal seriously challenging for the Premier League in the earlier years of Arséne Wenger’s reign looks sadly distant, for now at least.
Even shooting for a top four Champions league spot looks a tall order for the Gunners. Europa League should be the minimum requirement for a club of Arsenal’s pedigree, but would that be enough to satisfy the faithful at the Emirates? It is lucky for the club’s hierarchy that their fan base is more patient than most.
Key player: Bukayo Saka: a bright spark for Arsenal last season and has set the Euros alight with direct, fearless runs.
Transfer dealings: Brighton centre half Ben White remains Arsenal’s key transfer target – though the Gunners are struggling with the £45m (€52m)plus add-ons being asked by Brighton.
While David Luiz can be brilliant on the ball moving forward, arguably Arsenal have never replaced the George Graham back line with big, ugly, English defenders in the Tony Adams mould. White could provide the solidity at the back to complement Arsenal’s free-flowing attacking play that the North London stylists have long needed.
Arsenal will target Bayer Leverkusen’s Edmond Tapsoba if they are unsuccessful in a move for White, though he could cost a similar amount.
The Gunners are also after Nuno Tavares of Benfica and Anderlecht midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga (for an initial €17.5m).
Arteta is also keen on securing fellow Spaniard Miguel Gutierrez on loan from Real Madrid but faces competition of sorts from Leeds.
Among other reported targets are Barcelona goalkeeper Neto, although Sheffield United’s goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale might be more realistic. Along with fellow Blade Sander Berge, and Leicester’s excellent James Maddison.
Also mentioned is Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga – one of the real prospects of European football, he would be a real coup.
Manuel Locatelli, a star performer for Italy at the Euros, remains the dream signing but will probably remain just that: a dream.
Still, if Arsenal secure even a few of these they should be much more formidable next season.
Arsenal’s Odds to Win the Premier League: 50/1
Arsenal’s odds to Finish in the Top 4: 9/2
Arsenal’s odds to Finish in the Top 6: 11/8
Prediction for Arsenal: better than last season but probably not Champions League
It only takes one of the Big Four to mess up for a bet on a top four finish to suddenly look not crazy – but just look at the huge odds on Arsenal winning the title, it must make Wenger wince.
For our English Premier League 21/22 Betting Guide writers, they are not even ready for the top3.
Aston Villa Predictions For 21/22
After Aston Villa’s success last season in finishing 11th with an impressive 9 away wins, the Midlands club will be looking to kick on. But Villa’s success in 2021/2 will significantly depend on whether they keep hold of Jack Grealish, their inspirational midfielder whose swashbuckling style has lifted England at vital moments in the Euros.
Their form trailed off when Grealish wasn’t available at the end of the season. However, the signing of Emi Buendia was a statement of intent.
However, speculation mounts that Manchester City – who can spend €100m on a player the way many of us might buy a morning Latte – have already agreed a deal.
With Grealish, a Europa League place will be the ambition. Without him, emulating last season’s 11th place season would probably be seen as an achievement. Villa fans deny they are a one-man team, but Grealish is normally the only player they talk about.
Key player: Jack Grealish
Transfer dealings: Keeping hold of Grealish, obvs, is the priority, and Villa are talking up the prospect of a new contract. But much else springs from that – sell him, and there will be money to strengthen elsewhere.
They have, meanwhile, tempted back their old player Ashley Young, as fabled for his diving exploits as his play.
Harry Winks, who has fallen down the pecking order at Spur, would be a more workmanlike replacement, though there are unsubstantiated rumours that should Grealish leave they would target the more attacking Spurs midfielder in Dele Alli, who was axed under Mourinho and has fallen out of England contention. He, however, is pleading loyalty to the new Spurs manager. Villa have also reportedly bid £30m for Arsenal’s promising young midfielder Emile Smith Rowe.
Key targets include a loan deal for Manchester United centre-back Axel Tuanzebe, who has already enjoyed two successful stints at Villa Park. He would challenge Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa for a starting place.
Villa also want Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, who EagleBet feels would be a great fit for Abraham and who can be explosive in front of goal. West Ham were priced out at £40m, but will Villa be, too?
Aston Villa’s Odds on Winning the Premier League: 150/1
Aston Villa’s odds on Finishing in the Top Four: 16/1
Aston Villa’s Odds on Finishing in the Top 6: 11/2
Prediction for Aston Villa: 10th

How Should I Bet In the English Premier League 2021/2022?
Given the odds, Chelsea could be worth a bet to win the English first division, particularly if they land their targets.
Manchester City have to replace Sergio Aguero, which won’t be easy, but given their imperious form last season it is not difficult to see why the bookies have made Man City the overwhelming favourite to win the Premier League again, plus as we have said previously they are also the team to consider the most for our English Premier League 21/22 betting guide writers.
City are clearly firm favourites for the title for a reason, but we think the race is a bit more open than the odds would suggest.
