Premier League on Betfair: Walcott scores late on to fire Gunners to top three finish

A late Theo Walcott goal at Old Trafford looks to have secured a top three finish for Arsenal.

The England forward latched on to an Aaron Ramsey long ball in the final ten minutes and fired a deflected shot past Victor Valdes in the United goal to gain a point for his side in a 1-1 draw. A home win had traded at a low of [1.22] before Walcott’s late intervention while the stalemate touched [6.4].

Arsenal lead United by two points and have a pair of home games to round out their season with Sunderland visting in midweek and West Brom next Sunday. United must go to Hull with Steve Bruce’s side needing a win to save their Premier League bacon.

Manchester City look certain to end their season in the top two after beating Swansea 4-2 at the Liberty Stadium.

City occupy second place and are five points ahead of Arsenal after coming out on top of an entertaining clash with Swansea. The soon to be departing Yaya Toure scored twice in the 4-2 victory – a first goal for the Ivorian combined with City winning by an Any Unquoted scoreline traded at a high of [80.0].

Manuel Pellegrini’s men play Southampton at the Etihad in the final game of the season.
