Manchester City vs Arsenal Betting Preview – 03/02/19

Manchester City vs Arsenal

Arsenal travel north this Sunday to the Etihad Stadium where they will go up against Manchester City in matchday 25 of the Premier League. The hosts found themselves dropping points again in their latest match which has seen Liverpool pull five points clear at the top of the table. Arsenal will fancy their chances against City after seeing them drop points against Newcastle, but the Gunners have not been in top gear themselves with them only just seeing off Cardiff City midweek. When these sides met at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal put up little resistance to their opponents and suffered a 2-0 loss.

Manchester City are still in the title race with Liverpool, but after losing 2-1 to Newcastle United during the week they now trail the league leaders by five points and it would have been seven if Liverpool had beaten Leicester City. This defeat came as a huge shock for City as they had been in incredible form, which had seen them keep six clean sheets in consecutive games. However, City returns to home turf for this fixture where they are a much stronger side. They have won six home games since their last loss at the Etihad Stadium. Despite their recent loss, City are clear favourites for this fixture and can be backed with Bet365 for a price of 2/7.

When Pep Guardiola’s men are involved you can usually bank on seeing multiple goals scored, over the course of the season, City have racked up 63 goals which is the most in the league. Over the last five games, they have bagged 13 goals and conceded just two. Three of City’s last five games have seen them score over two goals and Bet365 are offering 4/5 for them to score over 2.5 goals. Sergio Aguero bagged the only goal in his sides defeat against Newcastle United which raised his total to 17, making him the highest scoring City player. Betway has him to score anytime at 17/20.

Arsenal finally managed to break into fourth place this week after they picked up three points against Cardiff City and Chelsea suffered a 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth, but with City as their next opponents, they drop back into fifth before they know it. Goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang secured their narrow 2-1 win over Cardiff. The Gunners consistency has been a problem for them in recent games with every win followed by a loss in their last five games. The North London side arrive as heavy underdogs in this fixture with odds of 15/2 with SkyBet.

Arsenal arrives as the away side for this fixture and playing away from home has not been their strong point this season. The Gunners last away win in the league was in November against Bournemouth since then they have drawn two and lost three away games. If Arsenal are to score then it is likely to come from their top goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bet365 has the forward priced at 6/4 to score anytime.
