Arsenal enjoyed a victory over Manchester City last time out with a 2-0 win in the FA Cup. It was a game Arteta had the number of Guardiola and will give plenty of Gooners optimism for the weekend.

City have had the better of results in more recent times though with them having won seven of the last eight, with City having not lost at home against Arsenal since 2015.

It’s a game that usually sees clean sheets with six of the last seven having enjoyed one, albeit only one in Arsenal’s favour.

Our Manchester City v Arsenal Predictions    

It’s going to be an interesting encounter on Saturday and if Arsenal do get the win there will be questions asked about City.

The Sky Blues recruited well to strengthen their defence though and we’d back them to come through on this occasion. A City win and BTTS looks good value at 7/5 with William Hill, with an Aubameyang goal anytime but a home win at 10/3 our top pick for this game.

The City -1 handicap may also be appealing at EVS, but at this stage of the season it is certainly one that could go either way, particularly with the home side having dropped five points already.
