Manchester City vs. Arsenal Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

The pressure builds on Manchester City this weekend as they face yet another top four side as they look to maintain their lead at the top of the Premiership table. A loss in this fixture will most likely see City cede 1st place in the Premier League to Manchester United.

Manchester City vs. Arsenal Trends Analysis

Manchester City and Arsenal have each won four of their last ten fixtures, with two matches going to draws. Arsenal has won two matches at the Etihad Stadium during this period.

Arsenal’s last trip to Man City produced a win for the Gunners, as they handed City a comprehensive 3-0 thrashing.

Manchester City’s unbeaten record in the Premiership lies in ruins following the club’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Chelsea on Monday. The club now has three wins, a draw and a loss from its last five matches, and has had its lead at the top of the Premiership table cut to 2 points.

City has scored 10 goals in its last five matches, for a high scoring rate of 2 goals a game over this period. Disciplined defence has conceded only 4 goals during this time, maintaining two clean sheets in the process.

Meanwhile, Arsenal has two wins, two defeats and a single draw to show for its last five matches. However, the Gunners are on a good run in the Premiership, coming into this fixture unbeaten in eight games and having won seven of these.

Arsenal has scored 7 goals in its last five matches. Defence has had a few lapses of concentration, with 5 goals conceded in this period, and 3 of these scored by Olympiakos Piraeus.

Manchester City vs. Arsenal Betting Tips

Defeat on Monday will have planted the seeds of doubt in Man City. While the side is unbeaten at home this season, an in form Arsenal presents a very real threat to City with the pressure building at the top of the table.

Home advantage gives City the slightest edge in this match, but we’d keep our money clear of the match betting markets. Instead we’re looking at the over/under goals markets for a match featuring two teams that have scored a cumulative 17 goals in five matches, letting in a cumulative total of 9 goals during the same period.

Our Manchester City vs Arsenal betting tip is therefore to go with a straight back bet on over 2.75 goals being scored in this fixture in the Over/Under goals market.
