Arsenal v Manchester City Predictions & Betting Odds – 2nd April 2017

Arsenal
Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Preview - Premier League 2nd April 4.00pm Manchester City’s lack of clean sheets against top-seven sides this season may have punters a little hesitant about them. But they are in good unbeaten form in the league and they have won their last three away games on the bounce as well and their defence has rapidly improved as of late. Arsenal have slumped to four defeats in their last five league games and with a defence that has fallen apart, are fading from a top four finish.

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Tips

The Gunners need to turn on the style at home in this one. Defeat would see their hopes of landing a top four place take another massive hit. They head into the weekend down in sixth place in the league and with a lot of ground to make up in the competitive and heated race for Champions League football next season. The Gunners are just with a W1 L4 record in their last five league games and lost against West Brom just before the international break. They do have form against City though, having only lost one of their previous 19 home games in the Premier League against them (W12 D6) so that’s a positive. The Gunners lost at the Etihad earlier in the season, though. Goals should be flying around in this one as the last seven league meeting have produced a total of 27 goals, which is an average of 3.86 per game. You aren’t looking at two great defences here and over 3.5 goals at Skybet returns a price of 6/4. Arsenal have Alexis Sanchez is an 11/8 anytime goalscorer option with Olivier Giroud at 6/4. Theo Walcott has scored four goals in his last four Premier League games versus Manchester City and he is a price of 5/2 to net in this one on Sunday. Both teams to score at SkyBet is a 1/2 price. The Gunners have produced pretty solid record at home in the league this season (W9 D2 L2) but there was that recent loss against Watford on home soil. Arsenal have averaged exactly two goals per game at home this season but if all goals scored after the 85th minute in the Premier League this season were removed, Arsenal would be seven points worse off (more than any other side) and below WBA & Everton in the table (8th). Stick in there with live in-play betting at SkyBet for the end of this one. With Manchester City having lost five league games this season, it means that Pep Guardiola remains on the brink of losing six games in a single season for the first time ever in his managerial career. With that having been said, though, the Citizens are going along in pretty good form at the moment with a W4 D3 record in their last seven played. Out on the road, they have won their last three games to nil, scoring at least two goals in each of those. They have collected more away wins than at home this season. Overall home and away, Manchester City have picked up four clean sheets in their last six, conceding just the two goals in total. Sergio Aguero is 20/21 Betfair anytime goalscorer favourite and he has 37 goals in 43 appearances against London clubs. Manchester City have won just four of their last 15 Premier League matches played on a Sunday (W4 D6 L5) but then going back to Pep Guardiola, he has a W5 D2 L2 head to head record against Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Odds

Arsenal 2/1, Draw 5/2, Man City 5/4

Arsenal v Manchester City Predictions

Manchester City away win: The Gunners have been shipping goals all over the place lately and Manchester City are good enough in attack to take them down. The Citizens have been carrying some decent enough form on the road to take down an Arsenal back line which is lacking confidence.

Manchester City v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th March 2017

Manchester City
Manchester City v Liverpool Betting Preview - Premier League 19th March 4.00pm The Citizens missed the boat in a draw against Stoke in their last league game but will move four points clear of fourth placed Liverpool with a game in hand over them as well, if they bank a home win in this one. It’s been a busy week for the Citizens with Champions League action. Can they raise their game and take down the Reds who have been striking-out on the road lately in the top flight? It is Liverpool who carry the strong head to head form in this fixture though, having won their last four in the league against the Citizens.

Manchester City v Liverpool Betting Tips

There is a great clash to come from the Etihad on Sunday evening, the final game of the Premier League weekend before the international break rolls in. Manchester City start the weekend in third spot, one place and one point ahead of Liverpool, but having played a game more than the Reds have. So they could open up an important gap here with a win. Man City exited the Champions League in midweek after a crazy 6-6 aggregate draw with Monaco, but at least that affords more focus back on the domestic front. Manchester City are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games (W4 D2) and notably in those games they have collected four clean sheets in their last five played. Pep Guardiola’s men have gone W4 D1 in their last five there but with just the one clean sheet in that sequence there at home. A 2-2 correct score may have appeal at 12/1 with Coral. You have a quote of 4/7 at Coral  on both teams to score because both are betting in attack than defence. Also, that has happened in each of the last four meetings between the two of them at the Etihad. Manchester City don’t have much form going against the Reds as they lost 1-0 at Anfield back at the end of December. They have now posted a poor D1 L4 record in their last five against Liverpool in all competitions and they have lost five of their last six Premier League meetings with them as well (W1). The Citizens have not managed a single clean sheet in any of their last 12 games against Liverpool across all competitions, conceding 23 goals in a W2 D4 L6 record. So they certainly are not a home banker here. Sergio Aguero has scored in each of his four previous Premier League home games against Liverpool and he is a price of 5/6 in the anytime goalscorer market. Over 2.5 goals at Coral returns a price of 13/20 while over 3.5 gets you a quote of 6/4. Liverpool fought back in an ugly home win against Burnley last time out, but that has at least seen them improve their form to W3 L1 in their last four, with victories over both Tottenham and Arsenal in that sequence. But those big wins came at Anfield and Liverpool are winless in their last four out on the road (D2 L2), losing their last two at Hull and Leicester in pretty disappointing fashion, particularly in defence. Liverpool have posted just a W6 D4 L4 this season and they really need three points in this one to keep in touch with those above them. Sadio Mane netted a hattrick for Southampton against City last season and he is a price of 2/1 in the anytime goalscorer market. Liverpool are unbeaten in their nine games against sides currently in the top six of the Premier League table this season (W5 D4 L0). Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has beaten Pep Guardiola more times than any other manager has managed against the Spaniard (5 times in all competitions). Can they keep their winning streak over the Citizens going?

Manchester City v Liverpool Betting Odds

Man City 19/20, Draw 13/5, Liverpool 3/1

Manchester City v Liverpool Predictions

Man City home win: The Citizens have been going well enough overall lately to be able to bank the win in this one. There will be periods when their defence will be under pressure from Liverpool’s attack, but the Reds are off the boil on the road and City can bank a big three points for themselves.

So they can create a nice buffer for themselves with a win and they have gone W4 D1 in their last five league games on home soil and overall, home and away, City have gone W4 D2 in their last six games with a clean sheet in four of their last five. But then you have Liverpool who are the ones carrying the head to head form between the two clubs. Liverpool have scored in each of their last games against Man City in all competitions and they have won each of the last four Premier League meetings against the Citizens too, including a 1-0 win at Anfield at the back end of December.

Man City and Chelsea 2/1 joint favourites for FA Cup after semi final draw

Chelsea
Well we are down to the final four in this season's FA Cup and bookmakers have not been able to split up Chelsea and Man City for the title, with them having been kept apart in the final four. Chelsea were the last side to make it to the draw after their 1-0 home win over 10-man Manchester United on Monday night. They join Man City, Spurs and Arsenal in the final four of this season's competition and the Blues have been drawn against rivals Tottenham for their Wembley showdown. Spurs are the only side to have beaten Antonio Conte’s Premier League Champions-elect in any competitions since they switched their formation to a back three. Manchester City will therefore face up against the slumping Arsenal, who have fallen heavily out of the Premier League title race and out of the UEFA Champions League as well. The Citizens are trading as joint 2/1 favourites alongside Chelsea at William Hill to win the title this year. This could be Arsene Wenger's last shot at claiming silverware as Arsenal manager. Arsenal are 9/2 outsiders at online betting site William Hill to win this season's FA Cup with Spurs at 7/2. You can earn a free £5 bet each at William Hill each and every week. Just place a minimum of £20 or more on football accumulators with four or more selections and you will claim your free £5 bet back. This offer does apply to select leagues and markets and qualifying competitions include all English and Scottish football leagues and cup as well as the major European leagues and the Champions and Europa Leagues.

Monaco v Manchester City Predictions & Betting Odds – 15th March 2017

Manchester City
Monaco v Manchester City Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 15th March 7.45pm Will the second leg live up to the excitement of the first between these two? There should be plenty of life left in this tie with Monaco posing such a big attacking threat and finding themselves just the two goals behind in the tie. They have the away goals in the bag which is some advantage to them. Manchester City’s defence will be put under pressure by the dynamic Monaco attack and the pressure will mount if they ship early in this one. Neither side could defend anything in the first leg, will the Citizens be able to hang on to their advantage or is there a big French fightback coming on? Take advantage of some fantastic football betting products available at online betting site Bet365. For starters, there is their great 0-0 bore draw insurance available on all matches which offers protection on your pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full-time wagers.

Monaco v Manchester City Betting Tips

What a game that first leg was between these two. Monaco will still have high hopes here as they have only ever lost once against an English club over two legs in a UEFA competition tie. The French side are 5-3 down after the first leg, but they do have the away goals in the bag from that incredible contest. That could well come into play and it means that they need a minimum 2-0 scoreline on the night to get through the tie. They did twice take the lead against the Citizens at the Etihad, they just couldn’t defend in the end. However, the French side are a tough home side in Europe and they are unbeaten in five Champions League home games this season (including qualifiers) having put up a W4 D1 record in the principality. Monaco landed 2-1 victories home and away against Tottenham in the group stage let’s not forget so have form against English sides. A Monaco 2-1 correct score at Bet365 is trading at a price of 9/1 which may have some appeal. Monaco have now come out on top in each of the three Champions League knockout ties against English clubs. Monaco have only managed to bank one clean sheet this season in the UEFA Champions League and that is the same return as Man City has managed. So there is plenty of potential for more goals and Both Teams To Score is 4/11 and over 3.5 goals at Bet365 is a price of 10/11. Monaco holds a home record of W4 D2 L2 against English opposition and they have come out on top in all but one of their five previous two-legged ties against English opposition. Monaco have struggled lately though in knockout stage games having lost six of their last eight Champions League knockout games (W1 D1) so will they be able to turn this around? Their attack was as impressive of that of Man City’s in the first leg and you have Radamel Falcao at 4/5 in the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market. The last 20 instances of a side scoring 3+ away goals in the 1st leg of a Champions League knockout tie; has seen all of them progress to the next round. Monaco may have it in them because they scored at least two goals in 13 of their last 15 home games in all competitions. So Manchester City could boost their chances by getting an away goal on the board, but they know that they have to do a better job defensively too. In the group stage of the season's UEFA Champions League, Manchester City went winless out on the road in a D2 L1 record. They did get past French opposition in the form of PSG last season in the quarter-finals so can take some heart from that going into this one. Also, Manchester City have won five of the six UEFA competition ties in which they have won the home first leg. Only Messi 10, Cavani 7 & Lewandowski 6 have scored more Champions League goals this season than City’s Sergio Aguero has (5) and he can be backed at 4/5 in the anytime goalscorer market. The Citizens hold an unbeaten W2 D2 against French opposition in European competition. How smooth of a ride will this one be for them?

Monaco v Manchester City Betting Odds

Monaco 13/8, Draw 3/1, Manchester City 8/5

Monaco v Manchester City Predictions

Monaco have to press and City didn’t know what to do defensively against them. There is still a good chance that the French side will make it through this and with their scoring going so well on home soil, they can rattle their Premier League opponents and produce a win in this one. Manchester City are going to have sweat this one out. Monaco on home soil to win looks value.

Middlesbrough v Manchester City FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 11th March 2017

Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough v Manchester City Betting Preview - FA Cup 11th March 12.15pm Manchester City will be happy enough with this tie as they are odds-on favourites to win through to the semi finals of the FA Cup. They were held to a  1-1 draw at the Etihad by Boro in the Premier League this season, but the Citizens have put together a good stretch of form at the moment and Pep Guardiola’s men are likely going to have the firepower to outscore the lightweight attack that Boro bring to the table. This is a big tie for Boro who have been defensively sound enough on home soil this season, but they may likely not have enough goals to trouble the Citizens on the day. One of the top football betting products around is Bet365’s 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance which they offer on all matches listed in their sportsbook. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

Register an account with the award winning Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus from them and enjoy other top features like each-way goalscorer odds, live streams and cash out options.

Middlesbrough v Manchester City FA Cup Betting Tips

Can Boro pull of an upset in this FA Cup quarter final, even though they are on home soil? They are not running in winning form as they have claimed only the one victory in their last six matches played across all competitions. Their last three wins in any tournament have all been in the FA Cup, so it has offered them some respite from a slumping Premier League campaign. They took home wins over Sheffield Wednesday and Accrington before moving past League One side Oxford in the last round. So aside from a tricky Third Round clash it has been a comfortable campaign for Boro and they have two clean sheets from three FA Cup games. If they are going to get through this it will only be in a game of low scoring and under 2.5 goals at Bet365 is a price of 8/11. There is a trend there as each of the last five between them have gone under the goal line. There was a 1-1 between them in the Premier League at the Etihad earlier in the season. Middlesbrough did win the last FA Cup clash between the two sides which was back in the 2014/15 season at the Etihad. The last time they met at the Riverside in the FA Cup was in the 2009/10 season and City won that 1-0 in a third round clash. A Manchester City 1-0 correct score at Bet365 is trading at a price of 11/2 and that could well have some good appeal for punters. Defensively Boro aren’t a bad side really but they have taken just the one clean sheet in their last six games in all competitions. They aren’t a major threat going forward by any stretch of the imagination and Alvaro Negredo is a 13/5 anytime goalscorer option for the game, with Rudy Gestede at 7/2. Boro's home form reads W4 D3 L1 in their last eight at the Riverside which isn’t bad at all and there have been five clean sheets for them. Manchester City are favourites for this one out on the road and their form lately has improved drastically. Defensively they have tightened up a lot and Manchester City to win to nil at Bet365 is a tempting price of 6/5. The Citizens path to the FA Cup has been pretty exciting. They opened with a 5-0 win at West Ham and then took a comfortable 3-0 win at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace. They then went to Championship side Huddersfield in the last round and played out a 0-0 draw before easing through 5-1 in the replay. Manchester City have posted a W4 D1 record out on the road in their last five games away from home in all competitions. That’s five clean sheets on the bounce for them away from the Etihad as well. In the anytime goalscorer market Sergio Aguero is 4/6 favourite with Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne around the 7/4 mark to net. They will probably have the superior firepower at the end of the day to sneak their way past a tough Boro defense.

Middlesbrough v Manchester City FA Cup Betting Odds

Middlesbrough 9/1, Draw 3/1, Man City 5/11

Middlesbrough v Manchester City FA Cup Predictions

The Citizens have looked a better outfit lately and they are good enough to go to the Riverside and find a way through Boro’s organised defence. City have scoring power and threats in them and they should be good value around the 2-0 correct score mark. Nothing wrong with having a punt on them to win nil against the lacklustre threat that Boro pose going forward and the Citizens have been collecting clean sheets lately to warrant a punt on that.

Manchester City v Stoke Predictions & Betting Odds – 8th March 2017

Manchester City
Manchester City v Stoke Betting Preview - Premier League 8th March 8.00pm The Citizens are looking for their fifth league win on the bounce after easing their way past the relegation-threatened Sunderland on Sunday. The Citizens are getting up a real head of steam at the moment and a win in this midweek game puts them into second place, two points clear of Spurs as this is their game in hand over the Lilywhites. Stoke bagged a win on the weekend, but they have a pretty poor record at the Etihad against the Citizens and won’t be relishing this midweek trip at all. It is a tough game for them and they go as heavy underdogs as expected, for the match up. William Hill’s Super Sub offer is a great way to cover your anytime goalscorer wager on a match. This offer only applies to selected live matches and if the player you have backed in the anytime goalscorer market is substituted and has not scored, then the bet rolls over onto the player who has come on to replace him. If that replacement player scores in the match then you will get paid out at the original price on your initial selection! This is tremendous promotion from the bookmaker and when you open an account with them you can earn a £20 free bet as a welcome bonus from the bookmaker!

Manchester City v Stoke Betting Tips

The Citizens have been going along at a very nice click with a run of four straight wins having been put together after a 2-0 win at Sunderland on the weekend. Three of their last four wins have been with a clean sheet as well so they have stepped it up defensively. Man City will claim second place with a win in this one and then they just need Chelsea to have an almighty collapse to be in with a shot at the title. Given the recent clean sheets that they have been picking up, a Manchester City to win to nil at William Hill is a price of 21/20 and that should have some pretty big appeal. Adding some weight to that is the fact that Man City have taken clean sheets in five of their last six against Stoke. With six home wins in their last seven (D1) in all competitions, Pep Guardiola’s men are going well on home soil and will be expected to win this one. They have netted exactly two goals in each of their last five Premier League home games, so there’s another trend. That leads us to a Manchester City 2-0 correct score at William Hill at a price of 13/2 which looks value too. The Citizens have gone W3 L1 in their last four Premier League games against Stoke and they have scored exactly four goals in each of the three wins in that sequence as well. Sergio Aguero has eight goals in seven previous Premier League appearances against Stoke and he is a price of 12/5 in the first goalscorer market. The Citizens have put up a W7 D4 L1 record on home soil this season in the top flight with the only defeat coming against leaders Chelsea. Leroy Sane in on a three match scoring streak and could well be worth a flutter in the anytime goalscorer market at a price of 21/10. He actually has six goals from just eight shots on target in all competitions this season. If City follow up their 4-1 win over Stoke from back near the start of the season, it would their first league double over the Potters since the 1998/99 season down in the third tier. Stoke have gone W4 D2 L2 in their last eight Premier League games home and away so they haven’t been all that bad really. However, the bulk of their form has been carried on home soil and they have been struggling on the road. The Potters have gone W1 L5 in their last six away games in the Premier League and they haven’t netted in their last two on the road. Overall, Stoke have gone just W3 D3 L7 on the road this season and there is a price of 10/11 on both teams to score at William Hill if Stoke can muster something up. But that doesn’t even look that likely as they have one goal only in their eight previous Premier League visits to the Etihad. Saido Berahino, Marko Arnautovic and Wilfried Bony are all 4/1 anytime goalscorer options. Seeing them score is hard enough, let alone them springing a surprise win on the Citizens.

Manchester City v Stoke Betting Odds

Man City 2/9, Draw 19/4, Stroke 12/1

Manchester City v Stoke Predictions

A Manchester City 2-0 correct score has some big appeal in this one. They have tightened up defensively lately and they have won six of their last seven league games on home soil and Stoke can’t match up to that kind of power at all. This should be another big three points in the bag for the Citizens the way that they are going at the moment. Stoke will be competitive at best and keep the score relatively low.

Sunderland v Manchester City Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th March 2017

Sunderland
Sunderland v Manchester City Betting Preview - Premier League 5th March 4.00pm The Black Cats can’t exactly be relishing the challenge ahead of them on the weekend. They desperately need to find some points from somewhere as they start the weekend rooted to the foot of the table. Salvation seems a long way of form them and they have won just one of their last six league games.

Sunderland v Manchester City Betting Tips

So the Black Cats are still carrying a huge threat of playing Championship football next season. To be clear of the drop zone at the moment they would need to be four points better off than they currently are. That’s a lot when you have picked up just the one win in your last nine Premier League games (D2 L6). However, once they get this one out of the way, there is a decent stretch of fixtures for them to try and pick points up in. Sunderland are on a two match losing streak in the Premier League at the moment and the goals have pretty much dried up for them, not that they were prolific at any point. Sunderland have failed to score in four of their last five games played now in the top flight and that is hurting them. Only Hull and Middlesbrough have scored fewer than they have managed this season. The Black Cats don’t have much to look forward to in this fixture as they are on a five match losing streak against the Citizens in the Premier League. Sunderland have suffered back to back defeats at home against Manchester City as well, but you can find a positive for them in that manager David Moyes has only lost two of the 12 home Premier League games he has managed against Manchester City (W7 D3 L2). But Sunderland have lost 17 of their league matches this season and that matches the tally of defeats that they collected over the entire course of last season. Sunderland have not been higher than 15th at any stage this season while in contrast, Man City are just one of two sides (Everton) who have not been outside of the top half. Jermain Defoe is at 2/1 in the Paddy Power anytime goalscorer market and he has eight Premier League goals against Man City. Defoe has also scored five of Sunderland’s last seven league goals. Over 2.5 goals at Paddy Power is a price of 4/9 as 69% of Sunderland’s home games this season have done and Manchester City have averaged two goals per game on the road this season. The Black Cats have won just one league game in 2017. The Citizens are on a three match winning streak in the Premier League and they have have only conceded one goal too in that sequence. So an improved defensive output they have shown and a bold Man City to win to nil in this one is 6/5 at Paddy Power. Actually each of their last three away wins in the top flight have been with a clean sheet and they have back to back ones on the road. It could well be worth a nibble. Sergio Aguero has four goals in his last four Premier League appearances against Sunderland and he has scored in each of his last three appearances at the Stadium of Light as well (four goals). Aguero is trading at 8/15 in the anytime goalscorer market which he is at 5/2 in the First Goalscorer market. Man City have returned a W9 L4 record from their 13 away games in the top flight this season. Pep Guardiola has lost five league games with City this season never in his managerial career has he ever lost six in a single season. They should be toppling the bottom side in the table.

Sunderland v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 2/7, Draw 11/2, Sunderland 10/1

Sunderland v Manchester City Predictions

The Black Cats have misfired against sides who aren’t as good as Manchester City are and they are likely to come out of this one empty handed. Manchester City’s away form has seen them winning all but four of their away games and with an average of two goals per game out on the road, there’s nothing wrong with looking at a Manchester City 2-0 correct score being put on the board in this one.

Coral offer Man City 25/1 enhanced odds to beat Huddersfield

Coral
The FA Cup fifth round replay between Manchester City and Huddersfield goes off on Wednesday night and the winner will be facing a trip to the Riverside to take on Middlesbrough. That is expected to be Manchester City who could only manage a 0-0 draw at Championship promotion hopefuls Huddersfield at the first attempt. That wasn’t an easy away game against a solid opponent but now back on home soil, the Citizens will be expected to have an easier time of things in breaking down their second tier opponents. Pep Guardiola's men have been in fine home form. Manchester City have gone W5 D1 in their last six home games across all competitions, so their current form is good and they have scored at least two goals in each of those six games as well. Overall home and away they have put together a seven match unbeaten streak and they have collected four clean sheets in their last six games as well. So there has been a decent flow from them and even though this extra game is a bit of a distraction, they are odds-on favourites for the win with the quality that they have and to land that quarter final spot.
