arsenal were lucky, then unlucky, in the draw against title pretenders aston villa. lucky in the sense that they did not concede in the first half when astin villa really made arsenal sweat, and unlucky because they really should have seen the game out at 2-0, but aston villa managed to equalise in the 91st minute, and it wasn't exactly a good goal or anything. zat knight, of all people, just took a chance with his weaker foot and i think he must be surprised that he found the bottom corner with such precision. arsenal have now not won in 3 league games, and i think they should be able to turn it around against a portsmouth team without glen johnson and lassana diarra, who is now a real madrid man. however, they might not clear the 1/1.5 handicap given that pompey will tighten their backline after the mauling by west ham.
Eddy's prediction: $10 on arsenal to win @ 1.40 = $14.00
