Sporting Index expects Unai Emery to improve on Arsene Wenger’s 63-point haul from the 2017/18 campaign and bag 71 points for Arsenal next season.
Offering Arsenal’s Premier League 2018/19 points at 70.5-72, which would have been enough for them to finish above London rivals Chelsea last season, the leading sports spread betting firm expects Emery to have an immediate positive impact on the team and earn the Gunners the same amount of points that saw them finish runners-up to Leicester in 2015/16.
Elsewhere, West Ham are predicted to rack up 47 points, their highest points tally since the 2015/16 season with Manuel Pellegrini in the Hammers hot seat.
Ed Fulton, trading spokesman for Sporting Index, said: “Arsene Wenger’s final season at Arsenal was particularly disappointing, finishing just sixth on 63 points, and we think Unai Emery comes in with a very good chance of bettering that.
“Our spread suggests Emery will break into the seventies in his debut season, while in the east of London we’re backing Manuel Pellegrini to give West Ham a much needed boost.”
