Arsenal vs Manchester City Match Preview & Team News
It has been another disappointing campaign for Arsenal, as the hosts sit in 10th place. Nevertheless, they ended their winless run in the last round after beating Leeds United 4:2. The Gunners still raise hopes for qualifying for the Europa League next season as they are six points behind Liverpool. But to do that, Arsenal needs to be consistent and more productive. Mikel Arteta’s side secured a positive result in the Europa League first-leg match against Benfica, which should encourage the home fans. Pierre Aubameyang and the lads improved their displays at Emirates Stadium, where they haven’t suffered a defeat on the previous five occasions. Still, Arsenal needs to be very disciplined if they want to keep that run going.
Manchester City has been unstoppable lately, and the victory against Everton was their 17th in a row. Despite the slow start into the season, Pep Guardiola’s side rose to the top spot. The Citizens are ten points ahead of Manchester United and are on a good track to win the title. Kevin de Bruyne and the lads netted at least three times per match on the last four occasions. On the other hand, they are excellent in the back, as City hasn’t conceded more than a goal 24 times in a row. Manchester City managed to get back home with a win from the last ten straight outings. Indeed, they are currently the best team in Europe and seem to be unbeatable. We will see if Arsenal is capable of providing them some damage.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Interestingly, we haven’t seen a draw in their last ten head-to-head clashes. During that period, Manchester City celebrated nine times, and we believe they will win once again.
Goals Market Prediction
The visitors have been very productive lately, and although Ilkay Gundogan might skip this game, we expect to see an efficient match. This one should go over a 2.5 margin.
