Arsenal Prediction – Can Arsenal continue mini-revival?

Following their disastrous 2-1 defeat at home to Brighton in the Premier League earlier this month, Arsenal have since staged a mini recovery in the shape of a 3-1 win away from home at West Ham along with a 2-2 draw away at Belgian club, Standard Liege, in The Europa League in midweek.

After finishing top of Group F, Arsenal have booked their place in the knockout rounds of the Europa League, and their attentions will now turn back to the Premier League where they’ll be keen to progress up the table as The Gunners currently occupy a disappointing 9th place on the top flight ladder.

Despite this season’s upheaval which resulted in the departure of former boss, Unai Emery, Arsenal have lost just once at home this season in the Premier League amidst an overall home record of 3-4-1 14/12 and have lost just twice in their last 26 matches at home as well.

7 of Arsenal’s 8 home matches to date in the Premier League have seen both teams score while the bigger picture shows us that 18 of their last 26 at The Emirates have also seen both teams hit the back of the net.


Arsenal vs Manchester City Over 2.5 goals

Manchester City Prediction – Can Man City stay focused?

Despite recording a convincing 4-1 romp away at Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League during the week, there’s a sense that all is not well at the Etihad Stadium with Manchester City putting in some mixed results of late in the Premier League.

Although City have recently chalked up wins against Chelsea 2-1 and a heavy 4-1 win away at Burnley, Pep Guardiola’s side have also fallen to defeats against Liverpool 3-1 and a bitterly disappointing 2-1 loss to rivals Manchester United.

With the visitors now a massive 17 points adrift of Premier League leaders, Liverpool, it’s safe to say that 3rd placed Manchester City’s title bid has now well and truly flown out of the window, and will do well to finish runners-up with the likes of Brendan Rodgers’s Leicester City side emerging as the closest rivals to Liverpool’s inevitable league crown.

Manchester City still possess a reasonable away record of 5-1-2 22/11 but the defeat at Liverpool was pivotal and they’re now in danger of imploding. Instead, 6 of City’s 8 away matches have seen both teams score and this looks the safer option here.


Key-Facts – Arsenal vs Manchester City

  • 7 of Arsenal’s 8 home matches to date in the EPL have seen both teams score
  • 6 of City’s 8 away matches have seen both teams score in the EPL
  • Both teams scored in the last encounter which Man City won 3-1 at home


Betting Tips Verdict

The gulf between these two sides has perhaps been reduced in recent matches and we should see both teams score and concede as their inconsistencies come to the fore.
