Looking at the last 3 fixtures I noticed the scorelines of 1-1, 2-1 and then 3-1 against Bolton in midweek (see the previous fixtures in the graphic above).
So surely Arsenal will continue the pattern and beat Blackburn 4-1 at the Emirates?
Of course, when I first thought about it I realised it was just a simply play on numbers but then I thought – is it actually so crazy?
Arsenal have scored 29 goals in their last 11 games, and in 5 of those have scored 3 or more goals. And strangely enough in the last 11 Arsenal have conceded 12 goals – on average that’s about 1 goal per game.
The numbers never lie.
And in the last 11 Arsenal have only managed to keep a solitary clean sheet – although that was in the game against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.
And remember the two games against Blackburn Rovers so far this season?
Arsenal won 6-2 and 2-0.
And average score of 4-1 if I’m not mistaken?
The maths suggest it will be 4-1 and I’ll even put a flutter on it.
Don’t even think about messing with maths.
