Arsenal thrashed Bristol City 7-0 ten days ago...

The teams met in the Conti Cup just over a week ago and the Gunners ran out 7-0 winners. Bristol City have the worst defensive record in the WSL currently and Arsenal have quite possibly the best centre-forward in the world in Vivianne Miedema. The equation doesn't add up well for Tanya Oxtoby's Bristol City side.

Joe Montemurro's side need a big win...

Arsenal haven't conceded in seven games now, however, they only beat vastly inferior opponents in Spurs and Liverpool 2-0 and 1-0 respectively. Meanwhile, title rivals Chelsea were running up a 6-0 win against Birmingham while Manchester City have hit 10 goals in their last two games. There is only one point separating the top three, but Arsenal sit third with a +9 goal difference. Chelsea have a +15 and Manchester City +16. Arsenal won't just want a victory, they will want a sizeable one.

Arsenal played bottom of the league Liverpool last week and only won 1-0, however, Liverpool have only conceded nine goals in their seven league games so far. Their problems are at the other end of the pitch, where they are yet to score from open play. Liverpool travel to Manchester City on Sunday and Arsenal will hope that they can at least keep the score down.

Having beaten Bristol City 7-0 just over a week ago, Arsenal will want something similar this time around. The Gunners have won 15 of their 16 home games in 2019- Meadow Park is something of a fortress. Over 3.5 goals at 13/20 is a decent bet. There is little value in betting on the Gunners to win at 1/14, the margin of the victory is where the smart money will go.
