Football: Rampant Rovers to stop Gunners; SPREAD BETTING.

Byline: BY SAM SPREAD (COLIN DUNCAN)

GIVEN the mesmerising manner of their last three victories it may seem ludicrous to oppose Arsenal today.

However, despite dumping Liverpool out of the Carling and FA Cups with 6-3 and 3-1 wins, I reckon the Gunners will struggle at Ewood Park.

Prior to their two demolition jobs at Anfield, Arsene Wenger's flamboyant outfit thrashed Charlton 4-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

Last month they also hammered Blackburn 6-2 but three goals in the last four minutes slightly distorted the scoreline in a match the visitors took the lead in.

Since that setback Blackburn have won four on the trot and seven goals in their last two games suggest,like Arsenal,they don't have a problem finding the net.

On their day Arsenal are unquestionably the best team in the Premiership but getting themselves up for bread-and-butter away league fixtures against teams such as Blackburn and Bolton has always been a problem.

Sheffield United beat them four games ago and their congested schedule of playing three games every week might catch up with them tonight.

Rovers have the personnel capable of getting under the skin of Arsenal and with Benni McCarthy scoring goals for fun they represent adecent punt getting a healthy start.

With the draw on our side the call has to be a sell of the Gunners supremacy at 0.7.

In the Championship, Sunderland look nailed on to collect three points against Ipswich.

Roy Keane's side, who have been strengthened by the addition of Anthony Stokes, are a tough nut to crack on their own patch while Ipswich are dire on the road. Buy Sunderland supremacy at 0.5.
