Manchester City v Arsenal betting preview
Man City had their eight-match winning streak in all competitions come to an end on TuesdayManchester City suffered a shock 2-1 defeat to Newcastle United on Tuesday, although were relieved to see first-placed Liverpool only draw with Leicester the following day. That result left Man City five points adrift of the Reds with 14 matches remaining while Tottenham clawed within two points of second. The Citizens netted 30 times in their other seven fixtures across January but they have claimed just 2 clean sheets in their last 11 Premier League games. Pep Guardiola's men will be relieved to be back at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday – a venue where they have won 11 of their 12 league matches this season and scored an eye-watering 40 times.
Man City skipper Vincent Kompany remains sidelined and so John Stones and Aymeric Laporte are expected to continue their partnership in the heart of defence. Benjamin Mendy has trained with his team-mates in the last couple of days but Danilo is expected to replace the Frenchman as left back. Goalkeeper Ederson should be fit to play despite picking up a minor leg injury last time out. Changes are a possibility in midfield and up front Riyad Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan clamouring for a recall in midfield and attack. Anyway, though Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero may be given another chance to impress before possible rotation in midweek.
Arsenal are 5-1-5 since having their 22-match unbeaten run endArsenal kept their Champions League aspirations alive with a 2-1 win over Cardiff on Tuesday. They sit in the top four, level on points and goal difference with Chelsea, but the North Londoners have scored 50 goals to the Blues' 40. Unai Emery's men have a disappointing away record in recent times. They haven’t won a Premier League away game since their 2-1 triumph at Bournemouth on November 25th and their only success from their last 6 matches on the road came in the FA Cup at League One Blackpool. As to direct matches, the Gunners have lost seven of their last 11 visits to Etihad Stadium in all competitions. Furthermore, Arsenal have claimed just three points from a possible 39 when travelling to the Big Six since the start of 2016/17 (W0-D3-L10).
Denis Suarez could be set for a debut after moving to north London on loan from Barcelona. Mesut Ozil struggled to make an impact against Cardiff and looks unlikely to feature here. As a result, we expect Aaron Ramsey to play behing the front duo, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. In defense, Nacho Monreal should fill in at centre-half alongside Shkodran Mustafi. Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi are expected to anchor the midfield. Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin and Sokratis Papastathopolous remain sidelined while Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Laurent Koscielny are major doubts.
