For those that haven’t yet heard of Picklive, it is a real time fantasy football game that allows football fanatics to win cash prizes during live televised games. Those watching this afternoon’s game between Leyton Orient and Arsenal can join the revolution for free by clicking on the link below and registering to play along.

The first three games are completely free, with no obligation to deposit afterwards, with each subsequent game costing £1 to enter.

Having signed up, you can play during this afternoon’s game by selecting three players from each side to form a team. These players then have five minutes to accumulate points for all of their actions on the pitch – from passes and tackles to goals and assists. The three highest scoring teams in each five-minute game win a share of the overall cash pot.

The result is a thrilling cross between fantasy football and in-play betting, one that adds a shedload of excitement, emotion and tension into every televised game.

Arsenal’s game with Barcelona on Wednesday saw one lucky player bag a record five-minute score, and almost certainly the £100 weekly jackpot with it. So we thought it might be nice to share some friendly advice on how you could do just the same during Arsenal’s latest fixture.

In an earlier cup tie, Leyton Orient bagged eight goals – and two hat-tricks. It is safe to say that they will not be doing the same against the Gunners, and your best bet may be to put trust in Orient’s defensive line this time. The likes of Ben Chorley should rack up plenty points for tackles and interceptions as they attempt to stave off Arsenal’s attacking threat.

Arsenal’s midfield generally earn the most Picklive points, where Denilson’s crisp and accurate passing is a valuable commodity. One strategy could be to use Denilson as a consistent scorer, whilst employing either Nicklas Bendtner or Marouane Chamakh to provide the moment of brilliance that secures a big win and a shot at the jackpot.
