Flying Dutchman 5-6 to pledge future to Arsenal
ARSENAL need just two more victories to secure qualification for next season’s Champions League but as they prepare for Saturday’s crucial fixture at home to Norwich there is still intense speculation surrounding the future of their star player Robin van Persie.
After adding the Football Writers’ player of the year award to his PFA version on Thursday night, Van Persie re-affirmed his commitment to the club saying: “I’ll always be a Gunner”.
But his contract at the Emirates has just over a year left to run and bet365 go 5-6 your-choice about Van Persie staying at or leaving Arsenal this summer.
The Dutchman leads the Premier League scoring charts with 28 goals – two more than Wayne Rooney – and is the
obvious threat to Norwich.
Bet365 have priced up a goals matchbet between Van Persie and the Norwich team and they make the Dutchman an 11-10 favourite, with the Canaries 3-1 and the tieavailable at 7-4.
Arsenal are warm 2-5 favourites in Premier League betting without the Manchester clubs, while Tottenham and Newcastle are 9-4 and 20-1.
