Arsenal vs Manchester City prediction comes before the 17th Premier League round matchup. This game will be played on Sunday, December 15th, at the Emirates Stadium in London, England. In this match preview, we bring you betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two teams.
Arsenal vs Manchester City Betting Tips
Fredrick Ljungberg’s tenure at Arsenal didn’t start very well, but right now, his team looks alright. Although they’re still far from having a good season, they did win against West Ham in the Premier League last weekend and played a draw against Standard Liege in the Europa League on Thursday.
Arsenal’s results might not impress you, but considering Ljungberg is a caretaker manager, you can’t expect much from him and his team. The job of a caretaker manager is to help the team get through until the new manager is appointed.
Of course, unless you’re Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer, who did such a good job as the caretaker manager that Manchester United decided to offer him a permanent contract. Will something similar happen to his fellow Scandinavian?
Such a scenario seems very unlikely, unless Arsenal do something really spectacular this weekend. And by that, we mean beating Manchester City. Sky Blues from Manchester might seem like a wounded lion at the moment, having lost two out of their previous five Premier League matches, dropping to the third place in the table as a result.
But, even though the Gunners can smell blood, it doesn’t mean Man City have lost their quality. On the contrary, this is still one of the best squads in the world, with one of the best managers alive. And they are very motivated to get themselves out of the poor run and start winning again.
Manchester City have some tough matches coming up around Christmas, with the clash against Leicester City being the most important one. Winning in London on Sunday would certainly give them confidence that they can push through the holiday season, winning as many points as possible.
Not winning, however, would make their title challenge look even more difficult. They’re already 14 points behind the table leaders Liverpool, meaning that they need to win everything in order to stay in the race for the Premier League trophy. What more of motivation do they need to beat Arsenal?

Arsenal Form and Latest News
The Gunners have improved their form a bit, but they’re still far from doing well. They also have big problems with injuries, with Bellerin, Holding, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, and Pepe, all struggling with injuries.
Manchester City Form and Latest News
Similarly to Arsenal, Manchester City also have problems with injuries. In this game, they will be without Laporte, Stones, David Silva, and Sergio Aguero. But, unlike Arsenal, Manchester City have a very long bench. In fact, there probably isn’t another team that has better backup players than Manchester City. That’s why they seem more than capable of betting Arsenal, something they did in each of their previous five meetings.
