BetUS.com has released its analysis on the Arsenal FC vs. Plymouth football game for this weekend.

According to that company's Nila Amerova, the betting trend will most likely fall in line with the heavily favoured Gunners.

"Plymouth will be motivated to pit their skills against one of England's top-flight clubs. This means they should raise the level of their game to unaccustomed heights. Realistically, they lack the quality to mastermind a huge upset - even though they are coming up against an Arsenal that is not enjoying the best of times."

Arsenal will be without defender Kolo Toure (groin) and midfielder Denilson (back) for tomorrow's FA Cup third round tie against Coca-Cola Championship side Plymouth at the Emirates Stadium however.

"We're very disappointed with the results we've achieved in the league over the last five or six games,"Plymouth Argyle manager Paul Sturrock told BBC Spotlight.  "We feel that we merited much better results than we've got, but I'm hoping the Cup will be of benefit to the team.The pressure's off us and on Arsenal, so we've got to go there and enjoy the day."

The second-flight leaguers are 15th in England's second division table.  They remain a consistent middle of the table club however.

For Arsenal, this is certainly one of the least successful seasons, losing the battle for fourth against Aston Villa.

"Arsenal has had many problems this season with injuries," Amerova points out.  "But their problems did not stop there and with low morale permeating across the bench they are showing signs of crumbling under the pressure. Arsene Wenger is on the hot seat and this may be his last season as coach. Overall, Arsenal is not enjoying the best of forms. They have managed to avoid defeat in their last six but won only three - two at home, one on the away, against Chelsea FC."
