Arsenal v Manchester City Premier League Preview, 1st March 7.45pm

Fresh from their duel at Wmelvey in the EFL Cup final on Sunday, Manchester City and Arsenal go at it back in the Premier League on Thursday night. It was City’s day at Wembley as they turned on the power in the second half to cruise past the Gunners. Given the overall poor performance of the Gunners, they won’t really be looking forward to going back up against the Citizens in this one.

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Odds*

Man City 3/4, Draw 3/1, Arsenal 13/4* (Betting Odds taken at 00:43 p.m. on February 26th, 2018)

Arsenal News and Form

Arsenal’s chances of a top-five finish at this stage of the season are looking pretty slim. Even if they were to win this game they would still be six points adrift of fifth-placed Chelsea. They couldn’t live with the quality that Man City produced in the second half at Wembley on the weekend and they just lacked the character and fight really. They have league form going for them at the Emirates tough as they are W3 D2 in their last five there. They have lost once at home this season in the league with a W10 D2 L1 record. They have also averaged almost three goals per game and it is worth looking at over 3.5 goals for this fixture with Coral which is at 5/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:43 p.m. on February 26th, 2018). 54% of Arsenal’s home games this season have gone over the goal line. Their defence has been a bit of a shambles recently and Arsenal have conceded in each of their last nine league games and in each of their last four at the Emirates. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last four home league games.

Manchester City News and Form

Manchester City get back to league business after winning the EFL Cup on the weekend against Arsenal. City are though, without a win in any of their last three games away from home in the Premier league (D2 L1) and those results came after they had won their opening ten away games of the term. They have averaged 2.23 goals per game this season on their travels and they have conceded just the ten goals and therefore a Manchester City to win to nil wager at Coral is at 27/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:43 p.m. on February 26th, 2018). Sergio Aguero is on fire at the moment in front of goal for them and he is the first goalscorer favourite at 7/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:43 p.m. on February 26th, 2018). He has 21 goals for the season in the league, but only six of them have been away from home (although he is their top away scorer). Six of the ten wins that Manchester City have recorded away from home in the top flight this season have been by a one-goal margin and they have opened the scoring in nine of their road games. Just once this season have they failed to score on their travels.

Arsenal v Manchester City Head to Head

That is twice this season that Manchester City have recorded wins over Arsenal by scoring exactly three goals in a game. Along with their 3-0 loss at Wembley on the weekend, Arsenal were downed 3-1 in a league clash at the Etihad earlier this season. Manchester City have lost just one of their last six games against the Gunners in all competitions, winning three of those. So they are up and in each of the last seven between them have gone over 2.5 goals. Arsenal are W1 D3 L1 in their last five Premier League home games against the Citizens.

Who will win – Arsenal v Manchester City Predictions

Given how much of procession it was for the Citizens against the Gunners on the weekend you would imagine that more of the same will follow in this league clash even though City are away from home. The Citizens should have some big wind in their sails so look for them to take the win to nil.
