Manchester City vs Arsenal Match Preview
Super Sunday in the English Premier League will witness Manchester City take on Arsenal with an eye on extending their lead at the top of the standings. This Manchester City vs Arsenal fixture would be played at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, November 5. Here are the predictions and betting tips for the match between Manchester City vs Arsenal.
Manchester City have started the season under Pep Guardiola with the single ambition of dominating teams and galloping to victories with entertaining displays. They come to this game on the back of a stunning 4-2 win over Napoli in the Champions League. So far, they have been able to stay unbeaten in 16 competitive matches this season with 14 victories. They collected 28 out of the possible 30 in the Premier League and are comfortably placed at the top of the standings, five ahead of nearest rival Manchester United. Their 35 goals scored (3.5 goals per game average) is a whopping 12 more than their nearest competitor – that’s an average differential of more than a goal per game. At home, they have scored 21 goals in five home fixtures and there is no reason to believe why they won’t do the same again this Sunday.
Arsenal, on the other hand, come on the back of a disappointing draw against Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League. They have 19 points from 10 games that puts them 5th in the Premier League table, nine points from City at the top. Their overall form is decent but not worthy of challenging the runaway leaders. A bigger concern for Arsene Wenger is their away form that has seen them lose thrice in five Premier League matches on the road. Meanwhile, Arsenal played against Crvena Zvezda in the group phase of the Europa League and that match was finished without goals, but home side played with mixed squad, so many important players were rested and ready for the big clash against Manchester City. They were thumped 4-0 by Liverpool and this City squad is the best attacking side in the League. For Arsenal, their last four trips to top four sides ended in three losses and one draw for a total of 12 goals conceded.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Predictions
To say that this City squad is the best attacking unit of the Premier League this season is an understatement. With an overflow of attacking options at his disposal, Pep can play any combination and still win it. The bone of contention would be the number of goals scored and the hosts look good to score at least three themselves. We are backing this match to be a goal fest and pick over 3.5 goals as a likely outcome.
