Arsenal can climb above Manchester United and local rivals Tottenham into third in the Premier League table with a Monday Night Football win over Newcastle United at home (kick-off: 20:00 BST)
That gives the Gunners plenty of incentive as it puts Unai Emery in the driving seat for the run-in and that hunt for a top four finish.
Bringing Champions League football back to the Emirates would be an improvement on the final years of the Arsene Wenger era as the old Arsenal maestro just couldn’t maintain that lofty position.
In order to move a step closer to that, the Gunners host Rafa Benitez’s Magpies and there are a couple of enhanced prices involving the strikeforce for punters to take note of.
Top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has bagged six braces already this season and five of those have come at the Emirates.
That makes boosted odds of 4/1 with Ladbrokes for him to score two or more once again well worth considering.
Aubameyang’s doubles have come against two clubs in the Europa League but also Fulham, Leicester City, Spurs and Burnley, so a Newcastle defence that has shipped 40 Premier League goals this term so far holds no fears.
Lacazette another to consider for goals
Fellow forward Alexandre Lacazette, meanwhile, is the subject of an enhanced 11/8 wincast with William Hill. The French frontman is second behind Aubameyang in the Gunners’ goalscorer charts with 14.
On all but one occasion this season when Lacazette has found the net, Arsenal have won and they are on a superb run of nine consecutive Premier League victories at home.
The Magpies have lost each of their last six visits to the Emirates – a beaten streak that goes back eight-and-a-half years to November 2010.
Chances are one or other of these enhanced price boosts will come off, so consider both to enhance your Monday Night Football viewing.
