Manchester City v Arsenal betting preview
Man City won five of their last six before the break, including victories over Leicester and Real Madrid.Manchester City sit 25 points behind runaway leaders Liverpool and are only playing for a spot in the next Champions League. Prior to the lockdown, the Citizens sandwiched sandwiching back-to-back wins with 2-0 defeats at Tottenham and local rivals Manchester United. As to direct encounters, Man City beat Arsenal 3-0 in north London in December. The Sky Blues have won their last six games with the Gunners and banged in the goals, netting 17 with just two conceded.
Kevin De Bruyne and Aymeric Laporte are both fully recovered after missing their last match three months ago. Leroy Sane has also resumed training and could play at some stage for the first time this season. Anyway, Sergio Aguero is likely to be flanked by Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling up front. Rodrigo will start as midfield pivot while Fernandinho will partner Laporte at the heart of the back. Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy are expected to get the nod over Oleksandr Zinchenko and Joao Cancelo as full backs.
Arsenal have drawn their last 5 away matches in Premier LeagueArsenal were just starting to find their feet pre-lockdown, recording three straight and climbing up to the 9th spot in the standings. They Gunners are 17 points behind their hosts, eight points off fourth-placed Chelsea with this game in hand. The North Londoners have improved under new manager Arteta - who makes his return to Etihad just a few months after leaving Man City - Anywa, they’re yet to face any of the Premier League’s strongest clubs and they did suffer an embarrassing Europa League exit at the hands of Olympiakos.
Two Arsenal players are struggling with fitness - Calum Chambers and Lucas Torreira. The likes of Sead Kolasinac and Kieran Tierney are both fit for selection but manager Mikel Arteta will keep faith in Bukayo Saka as left back. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will play as winger like before the break, allowing Alexandre Lacazette to lead the line. Mesut Ozil and Nicolas Pepe will complete the offensive midfield trio.
