2017-18 EPL: Manchester City vs Arsenal Betting Tips

November 5, 2017 by Posted in Soccer Tips

A faltering Arsenal will have the huge task of stopping an all-conquering Manchester City as the two sides get ready for a weekend clash in the English Premier League. This crucial fixture would be played at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on Sunday, November 5th.

Season so far
To say that City are going to win the Premier League is a little premature, but their form is title-winning. Dominating sides at will, City have been scoring goals for fun staying unbeaten in 16 competitive matches this season that include 14 victories. They have 28 points from 10 matches that place them five ahead of nearest competitors Manchester United.

They have also scored the most number of goals (35) in the League. Their home form is scary too as Pep Guardiola’s side has raked up 21 goals in five Premier League home matches. Can they continue their dream run?

Arsenal, on the other hand, have flattered to deceive with inconsistent performances. 19 points from 10 matches warrants 5th place in the League and already nine points off the pace. Arsene Wenger is struggling to lift his side from the depths of mediocrity and has seen three losses in five away Premier League fixtures. With City boasting the best attacking unit of England, if not Europe, Arsenal have their task cut out. Can Wenger find inspiration from somewhere to surprise the hosts?

Key Stats and battles
Arsenal won three and lost just one of their last six matches against City. However, Pep has a great record against Wenger having won four of his five home fixtures. Arsenal have a poor traveling record to top-four sides drawing one and losing three of their last four fixtures.

Are we stating the obvious when we say City are favourites to win? At odds of $1.44 (William Hill), a home win looks the most prudent pick.

After a difficult start to his City career, Leroy Sane has found the right form that saw him score four goals and five assists during the last five matches. Back the German youngster to score a goal anytime at odds of $2.40 (Ladbrokes).

TIP: Sane to score anytime – $2.40 at Ladbrokes

With such scoring form, City are primed to score more goals in this encounter. Back the game to have over $3.50 goals at odds of $1.91 (William Hill).

TIP: Total goals OVER 3.5 – $1.91 at William Hill
