Arsenal vs Manchester City Betting Preview 

Arsenal have recorded five wins in a row, three of them with clean sheets. Mikel Arteta's men have also been very good at Emirates Stadium of late. They have not allowed a single goal since Liverpool spanked them in November, 4-0. A record of 11 wins, two draws and six defeats has brought them 35 points, which is enough for fourth position, four points clear of fifth-placed West Ham. They are 15 points behind league leaders Man City, with a game in hand.

Manchester City have also recorded five wins in a row, 12 in the past 13 games. Before a 0-1 win in Brentford last time out, the Citizens were unstoppable, packing seven goals to Leeds, four to Newcastle, and six to Leicester. They sit top of the table, eight points clear of second-placed Chelsea and nine clear of third-placed Liverpool, having collected 50 points from their opening 20 matches of the 2021-22 campaign.

The reverse match this season saw the Citizens beating Arsenal 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium. That was Man City's third consecutive victory over the Gunners in all competitions and their 11th success in the last 12 direct encounters.

Best Odds

Of course Arsenal are underdogs here, with Unibet pricing the home win at 5/1. The draw is available at 19/5 with Betsafe while Manchester City backers can have 11/20 as best price with

Probable Line-Ups

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; White, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Lacazette

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will be absent as he isolates because of COVID.  Ben White could have to fill in at right-back again for the hosts, since the likes of Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Calum Chambers, Cedric and Takehiro Tomiyasu all tested positive for coronavirus and Sead Kolasinac is out through injury. Emile Smith Rowe is potentially coming in for Gabriel Martinelli, with Alexandre Lacazette again expected to lead the line since Pierre-Emrick Aubameyang is still out due to disciplinary reasons.

Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Ake; Bernardo Silva, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Foden, Sterling

Joao Cancelo has travelled to London and is available despite the violent assault on the Portuguese at his family home left him with facial injuries. Kyle Walker has returned to training after injury and should start at right back. Riyad Mahrez is available for what is likely to be the last time before he goes off to the Africa Cup of Nations. The former Leicester player should start up front alongside Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling, with Gabriel Jesus providing a further alternative. Rodri and John Stones are back in training after fitness issues and should be available.

Our Arsenal vs Manchester City Predictions    

Arsenal have won their last five in the league at home but it would be a brave soul who called for the Gunners to win this game, knowing that the last meeting in the autumn resulted in a 5-0 dismantling at Etihad. They have dramatically improved in the last two months but Man City are playing the most brilliant football in the league and we believe they can extend their winning streak. 1-2 or 1-3 are the recommended correct scores while Bernardo Silva is our pick in the anytime goalscorer market..
