Away games to lower league opposition can often yield an upset if the favourites underestimate their opponents, but Preston haven’t been in the type of form to suggest they can pull off a giant-killing, even if Arsenal were taken the distance in their last away outing in the Premier League.

Hosts Preston North End are coming off the back of two wins from their last five games in the Championship, and have fared even worse at home in recent weeks.

The Lilywhites have picked up just one league victory at Deepdale since October, and have kept just one clean sheet in their own backyard in the last three months too.

But given the hosts have only lost two games in their last 10 in all competitions, Preston North End are 7/1 with Betway Sports to win against Arsenal.

However, Preston are big underdogs ahead of the visit of Arsenal this weekend as the Gunners outfit will still boast a strong squad despite making the expected changes to allow the key players a rest.

Arsenal have been in decent form with two wins and a draw from their last three games, but showed some vulnerability recently away to AFC Bournemouth, going 3-0 down before rescuing a draw. If Preston were hoping for a chink in Arsenal’s armour, it may be their form on the road.

Arsene Wenger’s side have failed to win their last three away games ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup third-round clash, picking up just one win on the road in domestic competitions since October.
However, the gulf in class between the two sides should be telling as the visitors don’t often go down to lower league opposition in the FA Cup. Arsenal are a top priced 9/20 with Paddypower to win against Preston North End.

Preston North End v Arsenal Tips

Although Preston are sitting pretty in the Championship in 11th place, we see a comfortable win for Arsenal to progress to the fourth round unscathed. Even though Wenger is likely to ring the changes and bring back fringe players into the team the Gooners will surely have too much firepower against PNE. The odds of 9/20 would surely off been shorter if the first team were playing, but they are still attractive enough to take as our best tip for this game. If you want bigger odds you may want to take the 6/1 on offer at Betfair for anyone that opens a new account with them and place a £10 bet when prompted.
