Arsenal vs Manchester City Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Arsenal and Manchester City take on each other just a few days after the latter managed a comprehensive 3-0 win in the EFL Cup final at Wembley. The gunners came in with a disappointing performance that was exemplified by the opening goal scored by Sergio Aguero. A weak challenge from Mustafi was capitalised by the Argentine, while second-half goals from Vincent Kompany and David Silva once again highlighted the days when Arsenal were ripped apart by the top teams.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Manchester City are going for a third consecutive win over Arsenal in the 2017-18 campaign. There have been occasions when Arsenal appeared to have learned from their mistakes against the top teams, but a disastrous performance in the League Cup final hints at a return to the dark days. City have struggled in the recent visits to the Emirates Stadium, but it would be difficult to look beyond Guardiola’s all-conquering team. Sergio Aguero has five goals in 10 league appearances against Arsenal, but his recent record against the gunners has been stupendous. Aguero last failed to score against Arsenal in the 2015-16 campaign. Since then, he has been able to get goals in all of his appearances against the North London outfit. Aguero has also scored in six out of his last 10 games. I would back Aguero to score anytime.

Manchester City win – 8/11

Sergio Aguero to score anytime – 5/6

Arsenal saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Arsenal saw over 1.5 goals in 10 out of their last 10 games played against Manchester City

Arsenal Preview

Arsenal went back to a familiar situation against the top teams, as the gunners made a number of defensive mistakes that led to Manchester City enjoying an easy League Cup final. The last few matches have raised a lot of questions about manager Arsene Wenger’s future, and it is even rumoured that the Frenchman may be gone before the end of the campaign – depending on the Champions League qualification. Arsenal have been out of the top four since the 3-3 home draw with Liverpool before Boxing Day. Since then, Arsenal have picked up just five wins in all competitions. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored only once since his £60 million transfer from Borussia Dortmund.

Arsenal Team News

Nacho Monreal (back), Alexandre Lacazette (knee), and Santi Cazorla (Achilles tendon) are the players missing from action for Wenger.

Manchester City Preview

Pep Guardiola will be a happy man after leading Manchester City to his first title at the Etihad Stadium, but there is little doubt that the former Barcelona manager is aiming for much bigger prizes towards the end of the season. City have the potential to re-establish the massive 16-point lead over Manchester United. Even though Guardiola’s team have two big matches against Arsenal and Chelsea in the space of a couple of days, the manager is unlikely to worry given the strength and size of the squad at his disposal. Sergio Aguero is now up to 21 league goals and he has scored a further six in other competitions for City.

Manchester City Team News

Pep Guardiola will be without Fabian Delph and Fernandinho due to suspension, while the latter is already suffering from a hamstring injury. Raheem Sterling (muscle), Yaya Toure (illness), and Benjamin Mendy (knee) are the other injury concerns for City.
