Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips for Manchester City vs. Arsenal at English Premier League

  • Where: Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England
  • When: Sunday, March 31, 11:30 PM

The entire world is debating whether Arsenal has enough power to take down the Citizens and get even with them for last year’s disappointment in the title race. The two sides were the title rivals until the very end, and the direct wins City provided over the Gunners were a difference-maker, sending another trophy to the blue side of Manchester. Arsenal leads the way ahead of this clash, having one point more than City and Liverpool.

Manchester City vs. Arsenal Preview

Manchester City

The Citizens have been on fire lately, not losing in the past 22 games, winning 19 of them, and posting three ties, counting all the competitions. Apart from a draw against Liverpool at Anfield, City had six wins since February 20th, the most recent just before the international break. 

Back then, Guardiola’s unit defeated Newcastle 2-0 in the FA Cup quarterfinals. They didn’t have any problems with FC Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League, where they dominated, beating the rivals 6-2 on aggregate. 

Man City didn’t lose at home this year. The majority of their victories were based on netting twice or more and beating their rivals pretty confidently. The champs have ten wins and four ties in the Premiership matches in front of own crowd, with 34 scored and 12 conceded goals.

Arsenal

The Gunners are awfully close to snapping a title drought which lasts since Arsene Wenger’s time. Last year, this team didn’t have the experience to rebuff City’s late push, but now, it appears that Mikel Arteta has all the tools to push this job until the end.

Arsenal won the previous eight Premiership meetings, scoring two or more goals in each one and totaling 33 hits throughout this impressive interval. There hasn’t been a team in the league in such form, and we are positive that the Gunners’ fans are cursing the international break.

Arteta’s gang is the best road team in the competition, with nine wins, two ties and three defeats, the same as City, but with a far better goal difference, 34-11. They ride a four-game winning streak outside the Emirates.

By the way, City has eight wins over the Gunners at Etihad, almost all of them with two goals scored.

Manchester City vs. Arsenal Predictions

The hosts need to attack and try to break Arsenal, who won’t stand still, that’s for sure. Our pick here would be over 2.5 goals because we expect to see fireworks in Manchester. There won’t and can’t be any calculations because the title is at stake. 

Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
