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 earlie
r 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.
