bet365 Football Betting Show: Arsenal humble Hammers, Most Assists race and hungry Hojlund

Sam Matterface and Steve Freeth discuss all of the latest talking points in the Premier League following Arsenal's thrashing of West Ham and Man Utd's crucial victory over Aston Villa.

Arsenal humble Hammers

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal delivered the performance of the weekend in England’s top flight as the Gunners recorded their biggest ever Premier League away win in a 6-0 dismantling of West Ham at the London Stadium.

This rout of the Hammers means Arsenal have struck 16 goals in their four Premier League games since the turn of the year, putting a tetchy run of form in December - in which they failed to win in three league games - firmly behind them.

Former West Ham midfielder Declan Rice was one of the stars of the show against his old employers, registering a goal and two assists as the Gunners ran riot.

Rice’s masterclass has seen the England international’s odds to win the PFA Player of the Year award come in to 7/2.

Third-placed Arsenal are currently 5/1 to win the Premier League title.

Most Assists race

The Most Assists market in the Premier League remains as competitive as ever, with current favourite Kieran Trippier (7/2) adding to his account in Newcastle’s 3-2 win at Nottingham Forest.

Newcastle skipper Trippier is now level at the top of the Premier League assists standings on 10 alongside Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins, who is currently 6/1 to finish the campaign with the most assists.

Having finished with the most Premier League assists in three seasons – 2017/18, 2019/20 and 2022/23 – Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne looks the player to watch in this market despite spending five months out injured.

The Belgian maestro has recorded four assists in four Premier League games since his comeback from injury, making him the current fourth favourite in this market at 12/1, with Liverpool’s Mo Salah third in the reckoning at 7/1.

Hungry Hojlund

Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United secured a vital 2-1 victory at Aston Villa to draw themselves five points behind Unai Emery’s charges in the Premier League table.

Danish hitman Rasmus Hojlund opened the scoring to register his fifth Premier League goal in as many games, before Douglas Luiz equalised for the home side in the 67th minute.

It was Scotland international Scott McTominay who was the match-winner on the day, with the athletic midfielder heading home his seventh Premier League goal of the season in the 86th minute to seal all three points for the Red Devils.

McTominay’s seven goals makes him United’s top goalscorer in the Premier League, with the in-form Hojlund two behind him on five.

Scotsman McTominay is priced at 9/2 to finish the campaign as Man Utd’s top Premier League goalscorer, with Hojlund given odds of 6/5.

Following a run of three straight wins in the Premier League, Man Utd are in to 5/1 to finish the season in the top four.
