Team News

Arsenal
Man City
  • Mikel Arteta is sweating on the fitness of key wide pair Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.
  • The former was forced off in the midweek 2-1 defeat to Lens, and his absence would be a huge blow for the Gunners.
  • Jurrien Timber remains a long-term absentee for the home side.
  • Rodri serves the third and final game of a three-match ban, and his suspension is a blow for Manchester City.
  • Kevin De Bruyne is sidelined until later this year, yet is City's only confirmed injury.

Prediction

  • Arsenal blew Bournemouth away on Saturday afternoon, but were brought crashing back down to earth in midweek as they lost 2-1 to Lens. The Gunners are unbeaten in their last eight league matches, however have dropped points in two of their last three league games at the Emirates.
  • City saw their 100% record end at Wolves at the weekend having been knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Newcastle expense a few days prior. The absence of Rodri from a game of this magnitude may have huge ramifications on the final result.
  • City do have an impressive record at Arsenal, and may well extend that in Sunday's massive meeting at the Emirates.

  • Let's be honest: Haaland is not yet at Balon d'or level. His numbers are absurd, but his influence on the game is totally restricted to goals. He should and will be winning Golden Shoes year after year, but he's far from being the best player in the world

  • @MrNemobody people seem to think the one who scores the most goals is the best player. Haaland is good at finishing off goalscoring chances created by his teammates. .He doesn't play much football. He's just the guy up front, hovering around the box, waiting to score a tap in. Not my idea of the greatest footballer in the world.

  • MC lost their last 3 away league games.

  • @Marbella Man City lose to Newcastle was in League Cup not Premier League.

  • City sure misses Mahrez, Gundogan and . This City is not great at all. There's good value in betting on Liv or Arsenal to win the League.

  • @Yassine_1 Or Tottenham. They finally found a suitable coach for them. He might just do the impossible and win them a trophy.

  • @Sputnik Take Maddison and/or Son away and they'll lose top 4. Maddison is injured every season, just waiting to happen But they are contenders with both of them fit, i think it will be an exciting season with many possibly candidates

  • @CoolBreeze90 I don't like Tottenham, but I have to admit that Angelos Postecoglou is doing a very good job so far. They didn't flinch in the games against Arsenal and Liverpool. OK, the second one had some weird circumstances going on, but they still played well in it. It remains to be seen how they will handle the pressure of leading the PL - their other main weakness. It looks like a four-way title race between City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham. If it stays a four-way race until the end, then the PL will be interesting to watch for the first time in years.

  • This season's City team is mediocre. I repeat, this season's City team.

  • How an Earth is Kovacic still on the pitch?! Jones was sent off from much less dangerous tackle last weekend, not to mention countless of red cards shown for Arsenal players in past years...

  • city without KDB and Rodri is a really ordinary team...sigh...

  • @AramisMick :D...the price of playing for a draw...

  • 1-0

  • Wow...so far all today's matches are draws...this one will follow suit or can force a winner???

  • ARSENAL VS. MAN CITY MY PICK IS UNDER 2.5 MATCH GOALS. AS SURE AS DEATH.

  • Haaland needs to score again, this drought is dragging out a bit...at the rate he is going, he may miss out on golden boots this season...anyhoo, Man city is not playing well so its going to be tough...

  • @AramisMick without Keven then Haaland is just an overrated player

  • Over 2.5 goals

  • Bet W1

  • @netsbets.ru why?

  • @netsbets.ru why???

  • @Everbarcafan just because the neural net say so

  • Of 12 matches City played this season across all the tournaments, they were successful in scoring in first half in only 5. Arsenal have not conceeded in 7 of 11 matches in first half this season across the tournaments they played. I see a value in taking Arsenal double chance in first half (2.05)

  • Both teams to score

  • 1st goal will come in the first 15 minute of each half

  • Draw

  • Arsenal 1-3 Liverpool

  • @Abdulski97 what fixture is that about please?lol

  • @Everbarcafan lol i guess he is on something lol

  • @Kelving or possibly the fixture himself ��

  • Man city owns this fixture

  • @Slager Make that 35 times lol

  • @Slager You were saying?

  • @Slager given Arsenal have beaten Man City 34 times more than City have beaten Arsenal, you clearly don't know football. Glory hunter maybe???

  • 12 of Arsenals last 15 home games have gone over 3.5 goals.

  • 4-1 city
