Manchester City are heavy favourites to win this game and there is no real value in backing that pick. I am backing City to win this game to nil, considering their impressive record against Arsenal. Raheem Sterling will fancy his chances of getting on board and is our first scorer pick.

  • Man City’s Raheem Sterling has 8 career goals against Arsenal (All competitions).
  • Man City have won their last 8 matches against Arsenal (Premier League).
  • Man City have kept a clean sheet in 6 of their last 7 matches against Arsenal (Premier League).
  • Arsenal have lost their last 2 matches without scoring a goal (Premier League).
  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in 8 of Man City’s last 9 home matches (Premier League).
  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in 5 of Arsenal’s last 6 visits to Man City (Premier League).

Head to Head


Manchester City and Arsenal have played 203 matches in all competitions with City winning 60 and losing 98 with the remaining 45 drawn.

Last season saw these sides play three times with City winning all three. The two Premier League matches are won 1-0 with Raheem Sterling scoring for City. The League Cup match was won 4-1.

Man City Form


Manchester City started their Premier League season with a win and a loss from the opening two fixtures.

After a 1-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur on the opening weekend, City bounced back with a 5-0 win against Norwich City.

City have a great record against Arsenal winning each of their last eight Premier League matches.

Man City Team News


Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne are still injured and out of contention for Manchester City. John Stones is still enjoying an extended break.

Arsenal Form


Arsenal started the Premier League season with back-to-back losses but bounced back in the EFL Cup.

Brentford defeated Arsenal 2-0 in the first round and the Gunners then lost 2-0 to Chelsea. However, the 6-0 demolition of second-string West Brom in the League Cup with a hat-trick from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got them back to winning ways.

With little time between the League Cup match and this Premier League match, Arsenal will be stretched.

Arsenal Team News


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Martin Odegaard are expected to start for Arsenal. Bukayo Saka is doubtful after picking up a knock against West Brom, while Ben White is out.

Verdict

Manchester City have roared back to form thumping Norwich 5-0 last weekend. Their record against Arsenal suggests the Gunners have a tough fight on their hands.

I am backing Manchester City to win this match with a clean sheet. There are goals in this fixture, though, and over 3.5 goals can be a good pick especially if City find early goals. Raheem Sterling’s penchant to score against Arsenal makes him a value pick to get on the scoring sheet.
