Manchester City v Arsenal Betting Preview

Manchester City head into this game Sunday currently placed in 4th position having picked up two victories and two draws from their opening four games and having had a tough night over in Spain at the Bernabeu Stadium midweek in their Champions League 3-2 defeat against Real Madrid face another difficult match against an improving Arsenal side.

Arsenal are currently 3rd position having also won two and drawn two of their opening four games and their display midweek in the Champions League which saw them come away with an important 1-2 victory away to Montpellier will have the whole squad in confident mood of getting at least something from this one.

Manchester City v Arsenal Team News

Manchester City Team News : Micha Richards (ankle) and Samir Nasri (hamstring) are the only two main casualties for manager Roberto Mancini to contend with.

Both Sergio Aguero and Mario Balotelli are available but it looks as if Carlos Tevez will keep his place up front having impressed so far this season and looks likely to be partnered with Aguero with Balotelli having to make do with a place on the bench.

Arsenal Team News :Arsene Wenger has a number of injuries in his squad, Fabianski (shoulder), Frimpong (knee), Rosicky (hamstring), Sagna (broken leg), Szczesny (ankle) and Wilshere (ankle) are all unavailable for this game.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could return to the starting lineup having been rested midweek against Montpellier but Theo Walcott who has yet to sign a new contract looks likely to miss out again.

Manchester City v Arsenal Head to Head Statistics

Sunday afternoon’s game at the Etihad Stadium will become the 159th meeting between the two clubs over the years with all the results from those previous games listed in our head to head statistics table shown below.

  • Manchester City Victories : 39 (27 at the Etihad Stadium)
  • Goals Scored :172 (104 at the Etihad Stadium)
  • Draws : 37 (19 at the Etihad Stadium)
  • Arsenal Victories : 82 (33 at the Etihad Stadium)
  • Goals Scored :264 (116 at the Etihad Stadium)

Arsenal completely dominate Manchester City in the head to head statistics both overall and when playing at the Etihad Stadium and with the Manchester City defence far from a fortress at home this season, Arsenal will be quietly confident of causing an upset in this one.

Manchester City v Arsenal Match Betting Odds Market

Manchester City are the current odds on favourites to win this match with the online bookmakers which for me offers no value at all considering how leaky their defence has been so far this season.

With Arsenal seemingly only getting better with each game and coming into this on the back of two victories, an away win at generous odds looks the stand out value here.

Manchester City v Arsenal Match Betting Predictions

I am a little bit surprised to see the online bookmakers having Roberto Mancini’s side priced up as short as they are for this game as having had a difficult night in Spain midweek and the failure to keep a clean sheet this season Arsenal certainly have more than a fair chance of winning this game.

Arsene Wenger’s side have had major defensive problems in the previous few years, but so far this season the rear guard marshalled by Vermaelen and Mertesacker have conceded just the once which came last weekend in the 6-1 rout over Southampton.

With that kind of form Arsenal have a great chance of causing an upset here especially with Podolski and Gervinho looking like they have played up front together for years and for me Arsene Wenger’s side are massive value in this one.

You have to go back to 2010 to find the last time that a game between these two sides contained more than two goals, but with Aguero back in the starting lineup alongside Tevez and the partnership between Podolski and Gervinho looking like a match made in heaven, I for one am expecting goals in this one.
