Arsenal vs Manchester City Prediction and Betting Preview 18 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-0
Arsenal vs Manchester City PredictionStruggling to string positive results on a regular basis, Arsenal have played out an underwhelming Premier League campaign. The Gunners seem to have lost their fear factor, with relatively smaller teams heading to their famed “Emirates Stadium” harboring genuine hopes of nicking something home.
Match status: 2019/20 FA Cup
Kick-off:
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London)
Under the tutelage of Spanish gaffer Unai Emery, Arsenal approached the 2019/2020 season in a positive manner, seeking to challenge for the league title. However, Emery just couldn’t get his players ticking and was eventually booted out before Christmas.

With the Gunners desperate to return to the top of English football, they appointed former player Mikel Arteta to attempt restoring glory to the club. Just like his compatriot before him, the juvenile head coach has not exactly been enjoying life back in North London.

Sitting ninth on the standings, two points adrift the Europa League places with only two games left to play, the Gunners may now focus squarely on achieving FA Cup success – a certain route to booking a ticket to Europe’s second-tier competition.

Standing in their way of making it to the FA Cup finals is current title holders Manchester City, the latter of which are favorites for the win. Expect an entertaining game in Wembley come kickoff.

Arsenal vs Manchester City Team News

Arsenal’s struggles in the Premier League this term is well-documented. They have been horrendous in games, failing to assert their dominance against oppositions. Already relegated to midtable obscurity, the Gunners sit ninth on the standings after 36 games.

Pitted against Sheffield United for the FA Cup quarterfinals in a rather favorable draw, Arsenal were deemed slight favorites for victory. As record winners of the competition, the North London outfit headed into the game in high spirits.

Both sides matched toe-to-toethey remained level at 1-1 as we approached the final knockings of the game. A 25th minute Pepe goal was canceled out by an emphatic goal from McGoldrick inside 87 minutes, setting us up for a frantic end to the game.

However, Ceballos struck late on, sending the Gunners into the semifinals and the club supporters into frenzy. While at it, Man City were out in faraway Tyneside to take on tricky opponent Newcastle United. The Citizens put in a nice shift to record a big 2-0 win to advance to the next stage of the competition.

Everything that played out in the previous stage of the competition set us up for a mouthwatering FA Cup semi-final date between Arsenal and Manchester City. These two sides are mortal enemies and are always happy to go head-to-head against one another.

With their place behind Liverpool in the Premier League already secured, Manchester City are likely to place huge importance on clinching this trophy. Having already lifted the EFL Cup, success in the FA Cup will be warmly welcomed by the fans, to compensate for their underwhelming league campaign.

Meanwhile, it appears Arsenal will also be having a real go at the FA Cup title. Last time out against Liverpool in the league, Arteta shuffled his pack, giving rests to some of his big guns – probably in preparation for this showdown at the famed Wembley Stadium.

Arsenal vs Man City Predictions

Everything points in the direction of a thrilling game here. Manchester City completed the double over Arsenal in the Premier League this season, hammering the Gunners 3-0 in both home and away fixtures. Apart from that, the Citizens have really dominated Arteta’s charges in recent years.

As such, count on Pep Guardiola’s men to deliver the win, perhaps via a narrow margin. Surely, the Citizens will have to be at their best to pull this off, given the stature of the opposition in question.
