Expert football pundit and analyst Andy Gray is hoping to make a few bob for a summer holiday before the season ends. He’s joined the Paddy Power Blog team to give his insight on Saturday’s crunch Premier League fixtures on the box with the race for fourth hotting up.
QPR v Arsenal, ESPN, 5.15pm
People say when you are relegated your team will be more relaxed but you’re not. You’re flat more than anything. Because you know the following season you won’t be playing these teams, you’ll be playing teams in the Championship and having to watch the top-flight from afar. It’s very difficult to get yourself up for the game.
Arsenal aren’t in great form and blowing teams away but they are getting great results. The result at Fulham, against 10 men, they really chiselled it out. It wasn’t a brilliant performance but they did what they needed to in order to get three points. That is what they have done since beating Bayern Munich. They haven’t lost a game and only dropped points twice. This might not be a classic performance from Arsenal but they are good enough to beat QPR. They could keep them out and knock two or three past Rangers.
The Gunners to win by two or more goals at 11/10 is the bet.
