Man City Vs Arsenal Prediction, Odds And Team News

Manchester City will host Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium in a tantalising lunchtime kick-off on Saturday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola's star-studded side will be looking to add to Mikel Arteta's woes as the Gunners look to get their season back on track following two straight defeats.

In this particular meeting, the Gunners have suffered as of late and the history books suggest they usually struggle against the Citizens.

After Sunday's 2-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea in the Premier League, Arsenal fans will be expecting a tough afternoon for their side in Manchester, but can they pull off a shock result?

Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Manchester City vs Arsenal to get your teeth stuck into.

Prediction: 3-0 (13/2)

Half-Time/Full-Time: Manchester City (8/11)

For the first time in Arsenal's history, the club lost their first two league games - including a shock defeat to newly-promoted Brentford - and have failed to score so far, with injuries plaguing the squad.

Manchester City, meanwhile, thrashed Norwich City at the Etihad last time out and, with City at home again, it would come as no surprise to see them dominate in both halves against the Gunners.

Win to Nil: Manchester City (1/1)

Arsenal have not only gone two league games without winning, but have also not looked likely to find the net, either.

Guardiola's men have kept seven clean sheets in the previous ten encounters between the pair, while at home they have won to nil in two of their last three clashes.

Anytime Goalscorer: Raheem Sterling (7/5)

Raheem Sterling's record against the Gunners is too hard to ignore and he looks like great value in the anytime goalscorer market.

Interestingly, in the last eight meetings between the two clubs, Sterling has found the back of the net five times and he should have an easy time against a vulnerable Arsenal defence, especially with Ben White still out.

Manchester City team news

City will remain without the services of Phil Foden until after the international break, meanwhile, Kevin De Bruyne remains another doubt for the game after picking up a knock against Norwich.

Sterling and Riyad Mahrez should be recalled into the side after both scoring against the Canaries, which could push Jack Grealish into a deeper role as wantaway midfielder Bernardo Silva drops out.

Arsenal team news

Arsenal have welcomed back Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette back from coronavirus recently, but Arteta does not expect for £50m defensive stalwart Ben White to make it in time.

Thomas Partey's absence should see Albert Sami Lokonga handed a start at the Etihad, while Gabriel Magalhaes is back in training, but is not to return to action just yet.
