Pick 2: Arsenal to Win 1st Half (1.61)

The Hatters have endured a poor run in their debut Premier League campaign, recording two wins in 14 games. They have just one win in their last eight league outings, suffering five defeats. They have the second-worst attacking record in the league, scoring 13 times in 14 games, with six of them coming at home.

They have a lengthy absentee list to which captain Tom Lockyer was added on Saturday as he was substituted in the second minute against Brentford with a knee injury. Teden Mengi also picked up a knock in that game and might sit this one out.

The Gunners have seen an upturn in form recently, winning five games in a row while keeping three clean sheets. They have lost three of their last six away games in all competitions, scoring seven times while conceding nine goals in that period.

Fabio Vieira, Thomas Partey, Emile Smith Rowe, and Jurrien Timber remain sidelined through injuries in this match. Takehiro Tomiyasu picked up an injury in their 2-1 win over Wolves on Saturday and will not travel to Bedfordshire for this match.

The two teams will meet for the first time in the 21st century and will look to leave a good account of themselves in this match. Considering the visitors' dominance in the head-to-head record and current form, we back them to register a comfortable win.
