Arsenal vs Manchester City Betting Tips – Premier League, 15th December 4.30pm

Another big game coming up for Manchester City. The wheels came off their title defence even further last weekend with a shock home loss against rivals Man Utd. While retaining the title already looks to have passed them by, they need to start finding their consistency and rhythm again. Will they be able to muster up three points at Arsenal who snapped a long winless streak last weekend? Read our predictions for Arsenal vs Manchester City.

Arsenal News and Form – Can the Gunners beat Manchester City?

The Gunners came from behind last weekend away at West Ham to collect a victory. That win snapped an exhausting seven-match winless streak of league form that they had been on. It also gave Freddie Ljungberg his first win since being placed in temporary charge. Arsenal holds a home record of only W3 D4 L1 this season in the top flight. They have not had a taste of success at the Emirates in any of their last four home games (D3 L1). It was a 2-1 home reverse against Brighton that they suffered in their last home fixture.

Man City to win from behind


Arsenal have scored at an average of 1.75 goals per home game this season, with 75% of fixtures at the Emirates going over 2.5 goals. All three of the wins that Arsenal have secured at home have been against sides who are residing in the bottom half of the table. Home and away they have beaten no-one who started the weekend in the top half. All three of Arsenal’s home wins have been by a one-goal margin. There has been no clean sheet from them in any of their last eight league outings. Arsenal have only scored the opening goal in 6 games during this campaign.

Manchester City News and Form – Can the Citizens win at the Emirates?

The Citizens had a major blip last time out. They were odds-on favourites to win the Manchester Derby, but instead, they were outsmarted and suffered a shock loss against their rivals. It leaves City with only two wins in their last five league games (D1 L2) and the loss against United happened after their superb away win at Burnley, arguably their best performance of the season.

They are not likely to catch Liverpool in the title race, they just need to make sure that they secure a top-four place and perhaps target silverware elsewhere. Manchester City have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last six league games now, and it’s that defensive area which has let them down in this campaign. The away record of City still is more than respectable at W5 D1 L2. They are averaging 2.75 goals per away fixture this season as well with 88% of their road games going over 3.5 goals.

Man City have been winning at both half time and full time in their last 5 matches against Arsenal in all competitions and have scored at least 2 goals in 8 of their last 9 away matches. City have scored at least 2 goals in all but one of their last 10 against the Gunners as well. All of the away wins that Manchester City have recorded this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. They are missing Sergio Aguero at the moment, with Gabriel Jesus being left to lead the line.

Arsenal vs Manchester City Tips & Odds

Man City to win & both teams to score at 13/10
Over 3.5 goals at 4/5

Arsenal vs Manchester City Predictions

Manchester City to win: The Citizens still pack enough punch to go and expose a flimsy Arsenal defence. This could be a high-scoring game with both teams struggling at the back. But it is City with the extra quality and they can come away with three points.
