Arsenal v Manchester City FA Cup Betting Tips
This is the last shot at some silverware for both of these this season. The Gunners badly need this one because they look as if they are going to miss out on a top-four finish in the Premier League. But they have been out of sorts lately with a W3 D1 L2 record posted in their last five played and they have failed to beat Man City in the last three meetings as well. There was a draw between the two at the Emirates in the league this season, which followed a 2-1 home win for the Citizens over the Gunners. But then Arsenal have lost just one of their last eight played against Man City in all competitions (W3 D4). So they are up in that. This one to go over 2.5 goals at William Hill is a price of 8/11 and that has happened in six of the last seven clashes between these two.
In each of the last six clashes, either one or both has scored exactly two goals. In the William Hill Correct Score market there is a quote of 15/2 on a Man City 2-1 and 10/1 on a City 2-0. An Arsenal 2-1 score is a big 12/1 price. It is more likely than not that both of these are going to get on the scoresheet in this one and both teams to score is a price of 4/9. Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine clashes. Arsenal head up a very small FA Cup history between these two with a 2-1 match lead with no drawn games. In the anytime goalscorer market, the Gunners have Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud both at a price of 7/4 to get on the scoresheet. Will Arsenal sacrifice this for a shot at a top four league finish?
Manchester City have been patchy across all competitions lately with a W2 D2 L2 record in their last six, which includes a 2-2 draw at Arsenal in the league. After a little run of clean sheets, they have started to concede plenty of goals again lately and they have taken just the one clean sheet in their last six games played. They have still been finding the back of the net well enough though and have scored six goals in tier last two games played. Sergio Aguero is an 8/11 William Hill anytime goalscorer option for this one with the impressive Leroy Sane at 8/5. The Citizen shave had a very good FA Cup run this season with fifteen goals scored in five games, getting past three fellow Premier League sides and Championship promotion hopefuls Huddersfield as well. Guardiola will know the importance of getting through to the final and getting that trophy in a first season which has been largely disappointing from his side.
Who will win – Arsenal v Manchester City FA Cup Predictions
Man City To Win: Arsenal’s dip in form lately has been evident and they struggled to beat Middlesbrough on Monday night. City have the scoring power to tear open the shaky Arsenal back line. City to win and both teams to score.
