Manchester City will be happy enough with this fixture after the international break as they look to get back into their groove. The Citizens are undefeated for the season and they take on the Clarets. Burnley had just started to turn their fortunes around, but face a tough battle in this one. Read our Manchester City v Burnley betting tips for more.
Manchester City 1/14
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)
League leaders Manchester City will be looking to extend their winning form on home soil in the Premier League this season. They have won all four at the Etihad so far, scoring a total of thirteen in those four. So that’s a good average output and a Manchester City 2-0 correct score is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm). That gives them a good comfortable return after the international break. Manchester City have now won twenty of their last twenty-three (D2 L1) home games in the Premier League.
Raheem Sterling had a great game for England in their win over Spain on Monday and so his spirits should be high. He is at 10/11 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm). With the Citizens having collected a clean sheet in each of their last four games in the top flight, the natural temptation for Manchester City v Burnley betting tips is to back a home win to nil. City have not conceded a second-half goal at home this season and another decent proposition would be to back a Man City/Man City half-time/ full-time wager.
After picking up one point in their opening five games of the season, the Clarets were turning the corner well with a W2 D1 record in their three games before the international break. That gave them a great lift and they scored seven goals in those three games. They have a tough couple of games to get through now as they will face Chelsea after having met the Citizens. Just because the Clarets may not see too much of the ball both teams NOT to score is at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm).
Away from Turf Moor, this season Burnley are W1 D1 L2 so far and they have given up a total of six goals and have failed to score in two for their four road games. In total home and away, they have only the two clean sheets this season. The Clarets have been at 0-0 at half time in three of their four away games this season. We don’t see that being a very likely outcome in this one. Manchester City to win to nil is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm).
Manchester City collected a 3-0 win over Burnley in last season’s corresponding fixture. They also took a 4-1 home win over the Clarets in the FA Cup. City are W2 D2 in their four previous Premier League home games against Burnley but have won the last two. From the previous eight Premier League meetings between the two clubs, Manchester City are W4 D3 L1 against Burnley.
Manchester City are running so well at home and have won their last two league games there to nil. We are going to suggest riding that trend and backing Manchester City to win to nil in this fixture.

With no wins in three now across all competitions for Liverpool, the Reds will be looking to shake themselves up on the weekend. There will be no better way for them to do that either than in beating league leaders Man City. The Citizens have strung together a four-match winning streak and will want to prove themselves against what is deemed to be their main title challenger. Read our Liverpool v Manchester City betting tips for more.
Man City 15/8
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 3rd, 2018 at 9:14 p.m.)
The Reds have not picked up a win in any of their last three games in all competitions, picking up a draw with Chelsea in the top flight last weekend. There’s obviously no panic button that needs to be hit but a loss in this one would be a further setback. A big one at that.
Liverpool have won all three of their home games this season, scoring a total of eight goals and not connecting any. However, we are going with both teams to score in this one at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:46 pm). Liverpool have conceded in three for their last four league games now.
So even though they are on a run of eight matches at Anfield in the top fight without conceding, we are backing City to snap that. The Reds have a very strong home record of being undefeated in their last 24 Premier League game and they have been winning at both half time and full time in eight of their last nine at Anfield.
Liverpool have scored at least two goals in all but two of their last thirteen home games. Sometimes big clashes like this can disappoint but we are going over 2.5 goals at 23/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:46 pm). Even with Mo Salah out of form, the Reds aren’t likely to change their lineup.
Kevin de Bruyne is back in training for the Citizens but isn’t ready for action yet. They do have some other injury issues with Fabian Delph and Benjamin Mendy which leaves them a little bit short in the left back position. The Citizens have fired offer a W6 D1 record in their seven league games and out on the road, it has been a W2 D1 return.
The draw, their only dropped points of the season happened at Wolves back at the end of August. They can throw everything at this well-timed game just ahead of the next international break. A Man City/Draw Double Chance is at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:46 pm).
Sergio Aguero is at 9/2 in the first goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:46 pm) beaten only by Liverpool’s Mo Salah there. Manchester City have won eight of their last nine Premier League away games and home and away combined, have tightened up defensively with a clean sheet in each of their last three.
They do of course boast tremendous scoring power as they have netted at least two goals in all but one of their last seven games. They have not been losing at half time in any league fixture this season and have shipped only the one goal away from home in total.
These two met four times last season as they also squared off nit the Champions League as well as the Premier League. Liverpool won three of the four meetings, the only loss coming at Man City in the league. So that is some momentum that the Reds have and they have only lost one of their last ten games against the Citizens in all competitions now. They are on a five-match winning streak in the Premier League at Anfield against Manchester City. each of the last four games have gone over 2.5 goals.
Manchester City have to step up and prove themselves here in this massive showdown at the top of the table. With Liverpool just looking as if they are a bit off the boil and more conservative than usual, this could be a great time for City to strike. Away win.

Manchester City ended up making light work of Cardiff last weekend as they put five goals on the board. The reigning champions have another winnable looking match on their hands this weekend as they play host to Brighton at the Etihad. The Seagulls are still stuck on one win for the season and have lost their last two. Read our Manchester City v Brighton betting tips for more.
Man City 1/14
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2018 at 11:52 p.m.)
The Citizens have only dropped the two points this season in their Premier League title defence. They are on a three-match winning streak at the moment after firing five goals past Cardiff last weekend. That is a total of ten goals scored in their last three games now so they are still looking pretty proficient in front of goal. A Manchester City 3-0 option in the correct score market is at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm). There is a pretty decent chance of them, on home soil, banking a clean sheet you would imagine.
City have won all three league home games this season and Manchester City to win to nil which is at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm). The Citizens have lost just one of their last twenty-two league home games since the start of last season, winning 19 of those in such an impressive record. The top scorer for them on home soil this season is Sergio Aguero who has netted three of his four league goals at the Etihad. They have been leading both at half time and full time in two of their three home games this season and we can support that happening in this one.
Brighton’s big moment this season was a home win over Manchester United back in mid-August, but it has been a bit of a struggle for them since them. They have taken just the two points in their last four games and suffered a 2-1 loss at home against Spurs over the weekend. Away from home this season they have posted a D1 L2 record, not getting on the scoreboard in either of those defeats which were at Watford and Liverpool. Both teams not to score at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm) is an obvious option in Man City v Brighton betting tips.
To their credit, they have scored in four of their six league games this season, for a total of eight goals, which isn’t bad as they were expected to be struggling in front of goal. Glenn Murray has been the star of the scoring show for them with four goals on the board for them. But still, we don’t expect them to get on the board against City on the weekend. There is a trend with Brighton in away games as they have been 1-0 down at halftime in all three of their road games this season. So that is a good option for a halftime correct score option at 9/4 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm).
Not too surprisingly Manchester City got wins in both league meetings with Brighton last season in the Premier League. Both of those wins were by a two-goal margin, City taking a 3-1 win on home soil against the Seagulls. Those were their first meetings since a Carling Cup tie in 2008 and their first league clash since back in 1989.
It has to be Manchester City all the way in this home fixture. Brighton just can’t get it together on the road and the sensible option is Manchester City to win to nil. They should be good enough to win this by at least a two-goal margin.

Cardiff are still on the hunt for their first win of the season. They have suffered back to back defeats and their defence has taken a bit of a bettering lately as well. They may not get much of a break either as they face the reigning Champions Manchester City on the weekend. Even a point out of this would be a great capture for the Bluebirds. Read our Cardiff v Manchester City betting tips for more.
Man City 1/6
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
The Bluebirds have two points for the season thanks to 0-0 draws with Newcastle and Huddersfield. But they have lost their last two, conceding seven goals in total against Arsenal and Chelsea. So they are naturally going to be pretty vulnerable for this one as Manchester City come to town. We are going to look under 3.5 goals at 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.) as we don’t see Cardiff contributing to the goal tally in this one.
Cardiff are D1 L1 in their two home games this season. They have scored just the three goals across the course of the season and those have all bee in their last two games. They have been level at halftime in both of their home games this season but we don’t see that coming up in this one. Instead, a Man City/Man City half-time/ full-time option looks like a decent option to roll with at 8/15 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.).
The Citizens have scored at least two goals in all but one of their league games so far this season and they rolled out an easy 3-0 win over Fulham last weekend. So they have gone about their business as usual and Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling are the joint top scorers for them this season. Sterling is a good anytime goalscorer option at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). They are obviously powerful enough to go out and do a strong job on the road, but they haven’t been prolific on the road yet.
They took a 2-0 away win at Arsenal on the opening weekend of the season and then played out a 1-1 draw at Wolves. Because of that, a Manchester City 2-0 correct score option is at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.) which has great appeal for our Cardiff v Manchester City betting tips. The Citizens have scored exactly two goals in their last two visits to Cardiff. There is also the sensible looking option of a Manchester City to win to nil option to support the Citizens with.
There has been a meeting between these two this year as they met in the FA Cup back in January and the Citizens took a 2-0 win in South Wales. The only previous time they were together in the Premier League was in the 2013/14 season and the two of them traded home wins. Five of the last seven meetings have been over 2.5 goals.
We have to go with Manchester City collecting the victory in his one. Cardiff haven’t been able to get anything on the board even when they have scored. We don’t see them getting on the scoresheet against the Citizens so the away win to nil appeals in our Cardiff v Manchester City betting tips.
19th September 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Citizens have made a predictably strong start to their Premier League title defence have only dropped the two points in their four games so far. They will looking to extend their 100% home record as they welcome Fulham. The Cottagers have picked up four points in their last two games but with a leaky defense, could face a tough afternoon at the Etihad. Read our Manchester City v Fulham betting tips for more.
Man City 1/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.)
The Citizens have produced a W3 D1 record for the new season, a season of a Premier League title defence for them. The only ones to have stopped them winning this season was Wolves in a duel at Molineux towards the end of August. But City snapped back with a 2-1 home win over Newcastle after that. It leaves them with a perfect record from two games at home this season, scoring eight goals in the process. They haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last three games played which is a surprise But knowing the scoring power that they have in them, and knowing that Fulham play an open game, over 3.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on September 13th, 2018 at 6:58 am).
While Sergio Aguero is their top scorer with three goals this season, all three of those came in one game. That was in a home game though. He is still the 11/5 first goalscorer favorite for this fixture on the weekend* (betting odds taken on September 13th, 2018 at 6:58 am). Raheem Sterling could miss after getting a knock while on recent international duty. Man City have won 32 of their last 38 Premier League games and there have been over 2.5 goals in 18 of their last 20 league fixtures at the Etihad. They have also scored at least two goals in each of their last six games against the Cottagers in all competitions.
Fulham have responded well after losing their opening two games of the season. They fired off their first league win of the season at home against Burnley before playing out a 2-2 draw with Brighton before the international break. That is six goals then in their last two games and they do look as if they will continue to create and take chances. Aleksandar Mitrovic has come up big for them in front of goal this season and he is at 10/3 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on September 13th, 2018 at 6:58 am).
But it is at the back where you would worry about Fulham because they have shipped at least two goals in all four of their league games this season. In total is nine goals against in four games. So there are clear vulnerabilities that they are suffering with at the back and both teams to score is at even money* (betting odds taken on September 13th, 2018 at 6:58 am). This is not a trip they are going to fancy as they are on a six-match losing streak at the Etihad.
The head to head sees Manchester City on a five-match winning streak against Fulham. This will be their first meeting since the 2013/14 Premier League season. Manchester City put nine goals past Fulham in those two games. The Citizens are on a six-match Premier League winning streak at home against the Cottagers with a clean sheet in each of the last three too. City are undefeated in their last thirteen games against Fulham in all competitions.
Because of the open style that Fulham play, it is hard to see their defense holding out against Manchester City on the weekend. Because of that, we are fully expecting a home win to be produced and Manchester City to win & over 3.5 appeals in our betting tips for the fixture.

Newcastle’s fruitless season may well continue on the weekend as they face a tough trip up to the Etihad to face reigning champions Manchester City. The Magpies have just the one point for the season so far but this will have seen City get frustrated last weekend. They Citizens couldn’t find a way to put a win on the board against Wolves. Will they unleash a backlash on the Magpies? Read our Manchester City v Newcastle betting tips for more.
Man City 1/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
City probably would have expected to have had nine points from nine so far this season, but they were frustrated on the road at Wolves last weekend, settling for a 1-1 draw. That won’t bother them too much and there is a good chance of three points for them here. Given the number of goals that City have scored at home against Newcastle recently, it is no surprise to see a Manchester City 3-0 correct score option at the head of the market* (Betting Odds were taken on August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). That would be just the kind of response that Pep Guardiola would want from his team.
City’s one home game so far this season saw them bag a big 6-1 win over Huddersfield and the Citizens have won 17 of their last 19 home games in the top flight. That’s some record. There have also been over 2.5 goals in all but two of their last 19 home games. There’s more as well because they have returned at least two goals in seventeen of their last nineteen at the Etihad in the English top flight. So we are confidently going to go over 3.5 goals at bet365 for 5/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Sergio Aguero is still top scorer for them with three.
The Magpies haven’t had quite as much to celebrate. They have collected just the one point in the league so far from their three games, which was a 0-0 draw against Cardiff. They lost their other two fixtures, granted tough ones against Spurs and Chelsea by a 2-1 scoreline on each occasion. They were dumped out of the EFL Cup for the second season running in the second round by Nottingham Forest in midweek as well. Joselu has gotten both of Newcastle’s league goals this season and because of that makes the best option in the anytime goalscorer market for the victors. But are they likely to break down City?
Probably not and Manchester City to win to nil has to be considered at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Things aren’t quite right with the Magpies and they conceded 81% of possession at home against Chelsea last weekend. The Magpies have actually lost fourteen of their last seventeen games against City in all competitions. Last season in the Premier League Newcastle managed only a W4 D4 L11 record and the wait for their first win of this season may have to continue. Newcastle have scored just one goal in their last four away games.
Manchester City took back to back wins over Newcastle last season but the Magpies did make it difficult for them. Manchester City are undefeated in five games against Newcastle in all competitions now (W4 D1) and they are on a nine-match winning streak at home in the league against them. The Citizens have scored at least three goals in each of their last six league home fixtures against Newcastle.
It has to be a fairly comfortable afternoon on home soil against Newcastle. It is unlikely that the Magpies, based on what we saw last weekend, are going to come out of their shell. It could be an early test of patience for City, but the Citizens to win to nil is our leading Manchester City v Newcastle betting tip.
30th August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
It is pretty remarkable just how dialled in Manchester City have looked already at the start of the season. It is two wins from two and they will be looking to extend that as they start as odds-on favourites at Molineux on Saturday lunchtime. Wolves haven’t quite settled into the top flight season yet with just the one point from their opening two games. Read our Wolves v Manchester City betting tips for more.
Man City 2/9
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 20th, 2018 at 11:13 p.m.)
It hasn’t quite been the positive start that Wolves would have hoped to have come up with on their return to the top flight. There’s no reason to panic of course yet, but this is a tricky game for them. Wolves opened with a 2-2 draw at home against Everton for the season, but then they suffered a 2-0 loss at Leicester last weekend. That was a bit of a setback really for them because they would have come up, hoping to be a bit more competitive in games like that. They have a good squad, bursting with talent but they are going to need to dig a little deeper to find that bit of grit to survive. Naturally, they are going up against very free-scoring side here and over 3.5 goals is at 6/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 20th, 2018 at 11:13 p.m.).
Wolves do have scoring power in them with likes of Jota, Raul Jimenez and Leo Bonatini, but they have to take their chances. Adama Traore could well come in for his full debut after coming off the bench against Leicester last season. Matt Doherty, who was on the wrong end of a terrible tackle by Lester’s Jamie Vardy last weekend is a doubt. Wolves have produced an average of eleven shots per game this season which isn’t bad, but it pales into comparison against the average of 25 shots per game that Manchester City have produced this season. Just because Wolves haven’t quite settled themselves into the season yet and may not see too much of the ball in this one, we are going with both teams not to score at 4/5 odds for our Wolves v Manchester City betting tips.
It has been an explosive start from Manchester City in their title defence. They opened with that tricky game away at Arsenal which they won 2-0 and then they romped to a 6-1 home win over Huddersfield last weekend. Sergio Aguero bagged himself a hattrick in the game and Aguero is, not surprisingly the 12/5 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken from August 20th, 2018 at 11:13 p.m.). They have just picked up where they left off last season and immediately out of the gates they have just hit top gear. That is going to be a big worry for Wolves of course and already this season Man City have earned more possession on average in their games than any other side in the top flight.
In the bet365 correct score market at Manchester City 2-0 result is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 20th, 2018 at 11:13 p.m.). Last season in the top fight Manchester City produced a W16 D2 L1 record away from home and they are on a seven-match winning streak away from home in the top flight. They have also been winning at halftime and at full time in six of their last seven away games. The Citizens have scored at least 2 goals in 36 of their last 44 Premier League as well. They have lost Kevin De Bruyne for a big chunk of the season and last weekend, boss Pep Guardiola switched to a back three, leaving Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez on the bench.
Wolves and Manchester City were last together in a 2017 EFL Cup meeting. There was a 0-0 draw played out between them at the Etihad with the Citizens winning a penalty shoot-out in the end. The last Premier League meetings were in the 2011/12 season with Manchester City winning both clashes and scoring at least two goals in each. The Citizens have won four of their last five meetings against Wolves in all competitions (90 minutes).
Considering that Wolves have conceded two goals exactly in both league games this season will leave punters in doubt as to whether they can keep the Citizens at bay. It is not too likely and we have to back the reigning champions to get a win to nil at Molineux for our Wolves v Man City betting tips.
25th August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Man City were dealt a bit blow in midweek as midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has been ruled out for three months. Still, you would expect them to have enough cover in their expensively-assembled squad to handle themselves here. Huddersfield are heavy underdogs for this game but they gave City a tough time of things last season in the top flight. Read our Man City v Huddersfield betting tips for our thoughts on how this one will go.
Man City 1/10
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 7:48 p.m.)
At some point, the Citizens will likely miss Kevin de Bruyne who has been ruled out for three months. At the moment though and in the near future, they do have a good sequence of matches in front of them. They began their title defence with a solid 2-0 win out at Arsenal last weekend in what could have been a tricky game on the road. But they showed why they are the best side in the country. Raheem Sterling was back on the scoreboard after his prolific season for the Citizens last term and he opened the scoring at the Emirates. Sterling is at 4/5 odds in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 7:48 p.m.). Sergio Aguero is the obvious favourite in the market but price-wise doesn’t appeal as much. Along with De Bruyne, Danilo and Eliaquim Mangala are also out, with David Silva a doubt.
Manchester City have collected wins in all but five of their last 37 league matches and only in two last season did they fail to score. Their form at the Etihad was fantastic with a W16 D2 L1 record, the only visitors to win there being Manchester United. Manchester City scored an average of 3.2 goals per home game which leads us to the bet365 correct score market where a Manchester City 3-0 option is at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 7:48 p.m.). The Citizens have netted at least two goals in 26 of their last 32 league games and in all but two of their last 18 home games, the Citizens have scored at least two goals.
It wasn’t a great performance from Huddersfield on the opening weekend of the season as they went down 3-0 at home against Chelsea. They weren’t that competitive really and never looked close to avoiding defeat. This could be a bigger struggle for them. But the Terriers have drawn their last three away games in the Premier League and they did produce a surprise in holding out for a 0-0 draw in this fixture last season. There have been under 2.5 goals in each of Huddersfield last five away games. But that looks a risky option for this one at 21/10 odds considering how uncompetitive they were at home against Chelsea last weekend. Their defence has suffered a setback with Zanka out injured. Juninho Bacuna and Isaac Mbenza are still sidelined for them.
Ben Hamer will get another chance between the sticks as Jonas Lossl isn’t quite ready to go for the Terriers. Huddersfield posted a poor W3 D5 L11 record on their top-flight travels last season. There was no win for them against any of the top half of the table finishers last season. Getting goals on the board was a big problem for them as they returned only 12 goals in their 19 away games at an average of 0.6 per game. They managed a clean sheet in only 16% of their away games which heaped tremendous pressure on them. There may not be much in this for them and a Huddersfield +2.75 Asian Handicap which means that you would get a win if they lose by no more than two goals. That is a 19/20 odds option* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 7:48 p.m.).
The games between City and Huddersfield last season were a lot closer than expected. City had to come from behind on the road to bank a 2-1 win against them, while they were held to a 0-0 draw on home soil. Those were the first league meetings since 2000. In the last four meetings in all competitions, Man City are W2 D2 against the Terriers with both drawn matches in that sequence 0-0 scorelines.
We are going to do the obvious and back the Citizens to claim the victory and it has be to nil as well. It’s unlikely the Terriers are going to mount too much of a threat. Even that option is not great value so we are going to take a step at a Man City 3-0 in the correct score market for our main Man City v Huddersfield betting tip.
18th August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
This is the big game of the opening weekend of the new Premier League season. The Gunners have had a summer of transition with new manager Unai Emery taking over and bolstering the squad. How will they fare this season against Man City? City had an easy time of things last season against Arsenal beating them comfortably and the reigning Champions will be looking to sail through this tough opening test on the road.
Man City 19/20
* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.)
So a new era for Arsenal and they will be totally banking on their home form. Last season at the Emirates the Gunners posted a W15 D2 L2 record, which was very good and those two home defeats happened against the top two finishers, Man City and Man Utd. Other than that, they were pretty strong and picked up a clean sheet in 47% of their home games. We don’t see them getting a clean sheet here even though they have bolstered their defence and defensive midfield areas over the summer. We have to look at both teams to score at bet365 which is an obviously-looking Arsenal v Man City betting tip at 1/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.). Can new boss Unai Emery get the Gunners going off on the right foot?
Arsenal are undefeated in 24 of their last 26 league home games, which is a fantastic record. They also scored at least three goals in each of their last five home games of last season. The addition back in January of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang could pay dividends this season and he is at even money in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.). Another direction to head in for your betting is looking over the 2.5 goals and probably pushing it out to over 3.5 realistically. The Gunners saw over 2.5 goals in all but one of their last nine games against the Citizens in all competitions. Last season they were completed humbled by City. Will it be the same for them again?
The Citizens biggest issue really will be over the fitness of those players arriving back late in the summer for training after the World Cup. Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne for example on got back to training this week. The Citizens have already been out competitively this season as they took a comfortable 2-0 win in the Community Shield over Chelsea last weekend. They do of course have an enviable squad stacked to the rafters in terms of quality of depth so they shouldn’t be hurting too much. City have won 31 of their last 35 Premier League matches and they have scored at least three goals in their last three games against the Gunners across all competitions. In the bet365 correct score market a Manchester City 3-1 result is at 14/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.) and appeals for Arsenal v Man City betting tips.
Sergio Aguero was the star of their Community Shield success as he got both of City’s goals and he is the 4/1 favourite in the bet365 first goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.). Another betting tip to consider for Arsenal v Manchester City is backing the Citizens in a half-time/ full-time option. That is because Pep Guardiola’s men have been winning at both half time and full time in their last three matches against Arsenal. Manchester City’s record away from home last season was W16 D2 L1 which incidentally was exactly the same as their final home record. They didn’t do much in the transfer market in the summer with Riyad Mahrez being the highlight just to add more depth in creativity to their ranks.
It was just too easy for the Citizens last season against Arsenal as they beat them three times. They took a 3-1 and 3-0 win over the Gunners in the Premier League as well as a 3-0 success in the EFL Cup. In the last, four Premier League meetings City are now W3 D1 against the Gunners.
Arsenal are going to need time to settle under Emery and because of that, we have to stick with City coming away with the win. They were so good at the Emirates last season and they will have plenty of energy and enterprise about them so early in the season. Away win & both teams to score appeals in our Arsenal v Man City betting tips.

Southampton got the job done by collecting three points at Swansea in midweek which gives them a great cushion of a nine-point goal difference over the Swans. This was always going to be a tough finish for them and the job for them will not be to lose heavily. Manchester City picked up a win over Brighton in midweek in their final home game.
Man City 2/5, Draw 15/4, Southampton 6/1* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 9th, 2018)
Southampton are pretty much safe for the season. They would have to lose this heavily and have Swansea heavily beat Stoke on the final day of the season to take a tumble down a tier. The Saints are just W4 D7 L7 at home this season and they have won just one of their last ten at St Mary’s. The lone win in that sequence did happen in their last home match though as edged out south coast rivals Bournemouth at the end of April. Overall home and away the Saints are unbeaten in four (W2 D2) and they took a win of huge importance out at Swansea in midweek to put them on the brink of survival. Southampton have produced 20 goals in 18 home games this season and they will probably be thankful that Manchester City have already won the title and had their celebrations. That will increase the chances of the visitors being off-key. Just 29% of Southampton’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals but as this is Man City regardless of their focus over 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 a.m.). Only West Brom have a worse home record than Southampton do this season and while a win for them is not too likely, all the same, they just don’t have to lose by much.
The Citizens eased their way past Brighton in their final home match of the season in midweek, giving Yaya Toure a good send off. The Citizens are W4 D1 in their last five games and their away form is a five-match winning streak. Overall their away record for the season stands at W15 D2 L1. The goals are still flowing from them as they have scored at least three goals in five of their last seven games played and in the bet365 correct score market a Manchester City 2-0 is at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 a.m.) the joint shortest-price along with a 2-1 success for them. Away from home specifically they have scored at least three goals in each of their last five and a Man City 3-0 is at 11/1 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 a.m.). Manchester City have averaged 2.4 goals per away game this season and they have been tight at the back with a clean sheet in 50% of their road games and conceding at well under a goal per game on average. They are unbeaten in six away from home and have scored in each of their last seven road game. City have already broken the record for most goals and most points in a single Premier League season.
Southampton did alright at the Etihad earlier in the season only taking a 2-1 loss but that is back to back defeats against the Citizens now in the top flight. In the last five Premier League meetings between the two clubs, Southampton are W1 D1 L3 against the Citizens. Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings and the Saints are W2 D1 L2 in their last five home games against Manchester City.
Manchester City are enjoying themselves still at the end of the season and will be relaxed enough on the south coast. Southampton basically just have to watch how many goals they concede on the day to just make sure of their survival. Away win and under 2.5 goals.
