Tip: 1 AH+1
Units: 1/5
Odds: -112

Neil Warnock is determined to enjoy his season in the top flight with Cardiff City and he will have been pleased with the way in which the Bluebirds have acquitted themselves.

While a victory would have been nice from the opening three matches, consecutive clean sheets against Newcastle and Huddersfield will have filled Warnock with confidence that his team can compete in the Premier League this term.

Scoring goals would appear to be a problem for Cardiff, with Dennis Srbeny putting his case forward for inclusion after a brace at Norwich during the week, although Kenneth Zohore is a likelier starter as the home side set about attacking an Arsenal side who have leaked a few goals thus far.

Unai Emery is still getting to grips with his Gunners team and will have been relieved to get a victory on the board last weekend after consecutive defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea, although there are still frailties at the back.

There are also concerns over the scoring form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who has previously plundered goals at a spectacular rate, with Arsenal likely to head to Wales looking for defensive solidity.

We’re happy to side with Cardiff on the Asian Handicap market and backing them with a +1 start means that we will make a profit if the game ends with a home win or a draw.

It also means that an Arsenal victory by a single goal will see us get money back and this isn’t a game where we’re expecting Cardiff to be completely overrun considering that they have previously stopped Newcastle and Huddersfield from scoring.
