Manchester City vs Arsenal Prediction & Betting tips
A catch-up game is scheduled in the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening in the Premier League. Manchester City then receives a visit from Arsenal. The home team lost to rival Manchester United over the weekend and has to set things right for its own fans, but Arsenal has been doing well in the Premier League in recent weeks.
It is a matter of time before Manchester City is no longer the English champion. The Citizens are playing the home match against Arsenal on Wednesday evening and will be visited by Burnley on Saturday afternoon. The Pep Guardiola team has to take at least four points in those two games, because otherwise Liverpool can claim the league title against Everton next Monday. It will be a concern for the Manchester City supporter, as The Citizens only have the Champions League in this season.
Last Sunday, Manchester City lost 2-0 to Old Trafford against Manchester United. A few weeks ago, Manchester United in the Carabao Cup was already too strong for Manchester City by 0-1, and of course the supporters of The Citizens are not happy with that. Unlike earlier this season (Manchester City already won convincingly in the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford with 1-3 from the cityman), Manchester City had absolutely no right to a result in the Manchester Derby last weekend. In 2020, Manchester City has dropped points several times and The Citizens are no longer as unapproachable as in previous seasons. However, the poor results of the past months are all forgotten when Manchester City closes the season with the Champions League win. For the duel with Arsenal, the question remains whether Guardiola can call on Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Agüero. With both players, the Spanish coach will not take any risks in view of next week’s Champions League game against Real Madrid.
It is important for Arsenal to take three points on Wednesday evening at Etihad Stadium. The Gunners have won their last four league games and can therefore hope a little bit for a good end to the season. Mikel Arteta’s team is in ninth place in the Premier League and has played one match less than the competition. Arsenal’s gap with Manchester United, the number five in the rankings, is five points, so The Gunners can still qualify for European football.
Arsenal should actually book a result at Etihad Stadium and that is easier said than done. The last six times that Arsenal took on Manchester City, the North Londoners stepped down as losers. Earlier this season, Manchester City won the Emirates Stadium convincingly 0-3 against The Gunners. The fact that Arsenal has won the last four Premier League matches must give something to the Arsenal supporter. Last Saturday, Arsenal was 1-0 too strong for West Ham United by a goal from substitute Alexandre Lacazette, the Frenchman who is expected again in the base team on Wednesday-evening.
