A 2-1 defeat hosting Olympiakos has realistically put to bed any dim hopes Arsenal had for an immediate return to the Champions League, leaving the FA Cup as the only possible route to silverware this season.
Without other competitions to focus on we can expect Mikel Arteta to name a strong line-up here, especially as his side dont even face a current top-half team in the league until mid-April.
The Gunners cant afford to take Portsmouth lightly either. The south coast side arrive in quite some form having won 13 of 15 outings since early January, with both exceptions coming on the road at League One leaders Coventry and realistic promotion contenders Fleetwood.
Kenny Jacketts side have also won an impressive 14 of 15 unbeaten games at Fratton Park since early November, netting at least twice in all but one of these, including three in each of their last three games.
Arsenal To Win And Both Teams To Score
The prospects of Portsmouth finding the net look good with Arsenal keeping just three clean sheets from their past nine games.
In fact the Gunners have conceded in 12 of 15 away matches since late September. Pompey have various players capable of registering on the scoreboard, but John Marquis catches the eye having bagged nine goals in 14 appearances since early January.
The visitors are a highly respectable W9-D3-L1 on the road in this competition since 2012/13, as theyve scored at least twice in 11 of 13 games in total over 90 minutes.
Nine of their opponents were outside the top flight at the time of the game, but Arsenal still conceded against six of those sides in any case and so both teams to score looks attractive.
Arsenal have hardly dazzled on the road having drawn seven of 10 on their travels since the start of December, though theyve remained unbeaten throughout this spell and with signs of improvement under new management, combined with the likely strong line-up, its hard to see the Gunners slipping up here.
