Man City vs Arsenal Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

The English Premier League makes a long awaited return as Man City host Arsenal at Etihad Stadium. Man City do their best work at home and have a solid record against the Gunners.

Manchester City Form

Man City are coming off a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Manchester United in their previous Premier League fixture. They were guilty of missing chances with Phil Foden drawing a save from David De Gea while Sergio Aguero had an effort ruled out.

The result ended a run of five straight wins for City who remain 22 points behind leaders Liverpool in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola’s side return to the Etihad where they have won seven of their last nine matches.

City’s defending had been suspect before the break however, keeping just three clean sheets in their previous 13 home matches.

Arsenal Form

Arsenal earned a hard fought 1-0 home victory over West Ham in their previous Premier League fixture. Alexandre Lacazette got the goal in a sluggish performance for the Gunners which saw them finish with just two attempts on target.

It was the third straight win for Arsenal and keeps alive their hopes of securing a top four finish. The problem for Mikel Arteta’s men is their away form as they travel to the Etihad winless in their last five away matches.

Man City vs Arsenal Match Up

Man City have looked off colour at the back lately and have conceded in 10 of their last 13 home matches. They could struggle against Arsenal's attacking duo of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

It remains to be seen if Sergio Aguero or Gabriel Jesus starts in attack for City. Both men can trouble the Arsenal defence with support from Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling.
