What Trueform says for Man City vs Arsenal
Manchester City cannot afford any more slip-ups if they are to retain the Premier League title and Arsenal will be put under plenty of pressure at Etihad Stadium.
The Gunners have lost their last four encounters with the Blues by an aggregate score of 11-1 and have suffered from travel sickness of late.
In what promises to be a high-tempo contest, 11/10 for a home win and over 3.5 goals in the game is our initial Man City vs Arsenal prediction.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
Free-scoring City looked on course for a ninth straight victory in all competitions when Sergio Aguero fired them into the lead with just 25 seconds on the clock at Newcastle.
However, despite going on to dominate for long periods and having 76 per cent of the possession, the Blues were rocked by two second-half goals from the Magpies.
Salomon Rondon levelled from close range and then Matt Ritchie won it from the spot after Fernandinho felled Sean Longstaff.
Pep Guardiola issued a rallying cry, declaring: “We have to do our best to be there, try to not give up, move forward and try another time and another time.”
We fear Arsenal will feel the backlash at Etihad Stadium, where City have scored 24 times in their last four outings.
The Blues are expected to be fired up from the outset and 2/1 for them to score inside the first 15 minutes takes the eye from the Man City vs Arsenal odds.
Last Man City line-up: Ederson, Walker, Danilo, Stones, Laporte, De Bruyne, D Silva, Fernandinho, Sterling, Aguero, Sane.
City will check on the fitness of left-back Benjamin Mendy following knee surgery, but Vincent Kompany remains on the sidelines with a muscular problem.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal bounced back from an FA Cup loss to Manchester United by edging out Cardiff 2-1 at Emirates Stadium, making it 10 wins and two draws from the last 12 top-flight fixtures at Emirates Stadium.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted a 66th-minute penalty and then set up Alexandre Lacazette to help the Gunners get through an emotional night.
However, injuries contributed to another poor performance defensively and saw Carl Jenkinson make his first Premier League appearance for the club since November 2016.
Unai Emery’s side have only picked up one point from their last four road trips, with a 5-1 thrashing at Liverpool the low point.
The Gunners also conceded three times at Southampton and we’re going for a 4-1 home win here at 13/1 to finish off our Man City vs Arsenal betting tips.
Last Arsenal line-up: Leno, Lichtsteiner, Monreal, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Elneny, Ozil, Torreira, Guendouzi, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Arsenal could hand a debut to new signing Denis Suarez, who has joined on loan from Barcelona for the rest of the season.
Captain Laurent Koscielny (jaw) is fit to return and Henrikh Mkhitaryan could feature after overcoming a foot problem, but Danny Welbeck and Sokratis Papastathopoulos (both ankle), Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding (both knee) remain out.
