Premier League: Manchester City vs Arsenal

Manchester City vs Arsenal Betting Tip and Predictions. In the big derby of Round 17 in Premier League, Manchester City host Arsenal at Etihad. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Manchester City vs Arsenal.

Manchester City started this season in Premier League very good and they were the main candidate to win the title, but their recent performance is very poor and difference between them and leader Chelsea is now 10 points. Chelsea beat Crystal Palace on Saturday 0-1, but they have one match more than Man City, so if Pep Guradiola‘s men want to stay in a race for the title they have to win this game. It won’t be an easy job, because Arsenal play very good this season. Additional problem for home side could be the fact that their first top scorer Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho are both suspended, while Gundogan picked up a serious injury and will be out for few months. Despite that fact, Manchester City have to think about three points in this match. If they lose this game, it could means that their title dream is over. Another bad thing for home team is the fact that they failed to beat Arsenal in the last 7 matches in all competitions. They have to play open if they want to win this game, but it could be very dangerous for them because visitors have amazing attack.

Arsenal stand at the 3rd position with one point more than their opponent, while Chelsea have 9 points more. Arsenal have one match less, so if they manage to win this game, the difference between them will be 6 points. The match against Manchester City is very important for Arsene Wenger and his team, so they will be fully motivated to beat them and stay in the race for the title. Their top scorer Alexis Sanchez, who has already scored 12 goals in Premier League this season, is in the amazing form and he could be the most dangerous player for home defence. Expect him, Walcott and Ozil have started to play much better, so it won’t be an easy job for Manchester City to secure their net. The main problem for visitors could be the absences, especially in defence. An important defender, Mustafi, picked up an injury, so Gabriel should be his replacement on this match. After few good results, Arsenal lost in the previous round against Everton, so it will be interesting are they capable to get back after that defeat.

Team News

Home team miss injured Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gündogan, while Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho are both out due to suspension. On the other side, visitors will be without Chuba Akpom, Cazorla, Debuchy, Sanogo, Mustafi, Mertesacker and Welbeck, while Ramsey is doubtful.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Predicted Lineups

Manchester City: Bravo, Kolarov, Otamendi, Stones, Zabaleta, Fernando, Toure, Silva, de Bruyne, Sterling, Ihenacho.
Arsenal: Cech, Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Coquelin, Iwobi, Ozil, Walcott, Sanchez.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Prediction

Both teams want three points, but the winner could be only one. The draw won’t satisfied them, so I expect interesting and open match between Manchester City vs Arsenal and goals in both nets.
