Manchester City vs Arsenal PredictionThe moment every football fan across the world has been waiting for is finally at hand – the return of the English Premier League. With the deadly coronavirus ravaging Europe, and indeed the whole word, English football was brought to a halt in March.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 28
Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester)
However, following an extended break, the league has returned and it is time to get back into the swing of things. Kicking us off will be defending champions Manchester City as they welcome underwhelming side Arsenal to the Etihad Stadium for a crunch clash on Wednesday night.

Playing second-fiddle to runaway league leaders Liverpool, Manchester City will be looking to lay claim to second-spot on the standings. They have been totally outclassed by the Reds with Pep Guardiola’s men left chasing shadows for large parts of the campaign.

With third-placed Leicester City hot on their tails, the Citizens will set their sights on retaining their place behind Liverpool. For this, they will be required to put forth a worthwhile performance against the Gunners in this fixture, to ensure all three points are safely bagged.

Manchester City vs Arsenal Team News

Touted as favorites to clinch the league title at the start of the campaign, Manchester City have fallen short of pre-season expectations. To be fair, they have been very impressive this campaign with a whopping 57 points from 28 games.

However, the brilliance of Jurgen Klopp’s men has left the Citizens’ records looking inconsequential. The Reds have amassed a staggering 82 points from 29 games, with just a single loss of note all season. Hand them the Premier League trophy already!

Prior to the COVID-19 break, Manchester City made a short trip to Old Trafford to take on cross-town rivals Manchester United and were easily condemned to defeat. On the back foot for large parts of the game, goals from Martial and McTominay ensured the Citizens headed home empty-handed.

Meanwhile, the men from North London have been largely underwhelming this season. Following a slow start to the season, the Gunners were in a precarious situation, positioned in the bottom half of the standings. However, things are starting to look up at the club with a couple of impressive results in recent games.

Newly-appointed manager Mikel Arteta has brought a sense of good-feel to the club’s dressing room, with the players looking more driven than ever before. Last time out, a late goal from Arsenal’s Lacazette clinched maximum points, condemning West Ham United to defeat.

For this fixture, the Etihad Stadium-factor is likely to come into play. Manchester City have a stupendous record on home turf having managed 9 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses so far. They have also found goals very easy to come by, averaging 2.5 goals per game while conceding less than a goal per game.

Arsenal, on the other hand, have rejuvenated their faltering campaign with a couple of impressive results in recent games. In fact, they are currently on a three-game winning run – all three games played on home turf. 

In 2020, Mikel Arteta have led them to an imperious eight-game unbeaten streak – half of these games ending in draws. Away from home, they have been pretty lackluster with five league draws on the bounce. All season, they have managed two wins, eight draws and three losses on the road.

Man City vs Arsenal Predictions

The visitor’s struggles in front of goal is very well-documented. They have registered just fourteen goals in all of their thirteen away games this campaign, one of the worst records in the league. Manchester City are known to be devastating on this ground and are very likely to roar to victory here.

As the home win is priced really low, you might fancy tipping the Citizens for victory with Guardiola’s men registering no less than two goals. Also, Arsenal are very unlikely to register a single goal in this fixture.
