Arsenal Man City Betting Tip

Monday night football in the English Premier League (EPL) is generally not reserved for big ticket games but next Monday will change that opinion. In what promises to be one of the most defining matches of the season, Arsenal take on Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium on Monday, 21st December – which we preview in our latest soccer betting tips article.

The season so far has been so topsy-turvy that none of the top sides is leaving others in the wake. Leicester City is the only side with momentum but Arsenal and Manchester City are still in with a chance for the title. The hope that Leicester would lose its momentum presents a great opportunity for both the sides to claim this year title.

For the home side Arsenal, it has been 12 years since Arsene Wenger last led the club to the Premier League summit. Staying in top four remained their biggest achievement while also failing to finish in top-two since 2005. This year is a great window but their form has not been reassuring. Dropping five points during the last month against West Brom and Norwich may come back to bite them in the final analysis.

The form of Mesut Ozil is a boost though, to Wenger, with the mercurial German raking assists at will. The game against City provides Ozil with the best chance to answer his critics that he goes missing in important games. Olivier Giroud is coming back to form and his goals could prove vital for Arsenal. Will Wenger risk his main guy Alexis Sanchez’s fitness for an important game considering the season ahead?

Manuel Pellegrini and City are in the midst of swinging fortunes of their own. After the first five games, it was widely expected that the Citizens would walk away with the title. Yet, teams like Stoke and Liverpool have already shown that City is beatable at their own game.

The form and fitness of Vincent Kompany is so vital for City that his absence is not throwing the back four into disarray. Goals upfront also dry up in the absence of Sergio Aguero which makes his fitness as vital as Kompany’s, to their fortunes. But, of all the contenders, City possess the strongest squad and has the best chance to lift the title. And matches like this provide them an opportunity to put it past a direct rival.

Big matches often test the mettle of all players on both sides. Will Arsenal make their home advantage count? Will City be able to surprise their rivals? The Gunners have lost just one of their 18 EPL home games against City – but, they won only once in those last six matches. This fixture tends to be a fiery one with five red cards in the last five meetings at the Emirates. Watch out for the referee’s pocket!

We believe the draw could be the way to go here!
