28th August – 13:30, Etihad Stadium, Manchester
Manchester City and Arsenal will kick off Saturday’s action in the Premier League 3rd round. The hosts want to pick up where they left off, while the away side searches for the first points in the campaign.
Manchester City vs Arsenal Match Preview & Team News
The new season didn’t start well for the defending champions. They failed to win Community Shield after losing to Leicester City and suffered another defeat against Tottenham in the opening round of the Premier League. However, Pep Guardiola’s side bounced back in a 5:0 Norwich demolition last weekend. Jack Grealish scored his first City goal and showed he could be an excellent signing for the Citizens. Nevertheless, Manchester City is still looking for a signing in the final third, as their efforts to bring Harry Kane will fail. We’ll see how the defending champions will deal on the market, as Cristiano Ronaldo switched the direction and signed for United.
It seems it will be another disappointing campaign for Arsenal. The Gunners suffered two defeats in the first two rounds, failing to find the back of the net in both matches. Nevertheless, Miel Artera’s side raged against WBA by eating them 6:0 in the EFL Cup during midweek. However, the visitors need improvement, and Martin Odegaard could connect the strings between midfield and attack. Arsenal won’t participate in the continental competitions this season, and they can only focus on their Premier League campaign. After losing to Chelsea last weekend, this is going to be another tough challenge for Arsenal.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Manchester City had more time to prepare for this game, as they were not involved in midweek action. Regardless, they are strong favorites in this clash, and we believe they will celebrate by at least two goals.
Goals Market Prediction
Their head-to-head clashes at Etihad Stadium have been pretty entertaining, and five of the last six brought at least three goals per game. We might see another efficient match that should go over a 2.5 margin.
