The Premier League champions Manchester City welcome a struggling Arsenal side to The Etihad Stadium for a Premier League encounter on Saturday the 28th of August 2021.
Manchester City did lose their opening game of the season against Tottenham as Son got the job done without the presence of Harry Kane. The Cityzens bounced back with a 5-0 home win against newly-promoted Norwich City in which Jack Grealish got his first goal for the club.
Manchester City won’t be too concerned with their current ninth-place position in the league, given that it took them a while to find form last season before they went on to finish top, although it’s imperative that they use this five-goal thrashing as a checkpoint to now find some form as they come up against Arsenal and Leicester City next.
Arsenal have lost their last four football matches, the last two of which were the first two games of this new Premier League campaign where they’ve failed to score a single goal, leaving them second from bottom in the Premier League.
Maybe the 0-2 home loss to Chelsea wasn’t quite a red flag, as Chelsea are second-favourites for the Premier League title this year, but the 2-0 away loss to Premier League newcomers Brentford certainly was.
Head to head, Man City have won the last four meetings between these two clubs, winning 0-1 away at The Emirates and 1-0 at home in the Premier League fixtures last season, as well as 1-4 in the EFL Cup quarter-finals, which Manchester City went on to win.
Odds For Manchester City v Arsenal
Manchester City are the clear favourites heading into this Premier League fixture against Arsenal on Saturday. It’s the first time in a very long time that the difference in the pre-game odds between these sides have been this significant.
While a Manchester City win is currently priced around 1/4, a draw is priced as high as 11/2, and odds on an Arsenal win are as high as 13/1:
Even if City get the expected win, Arsenal are certainly due their first goal of the season, so a bet on the ‘match result and both teams to score’ market could certainly be worthwhile:
Manchester City are favourites to win the league for a second consecutive season. It’s very interesting who the following favourites are in this outright market, though, and after Man City’s lacklustre first game before their thrashing of Norwich, who knows how things could look at the end of the season. Here are the current top five favourites for the Premier League title this season:
Manchester City v Arsenal Teams
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has made three cash sales and two cash purchases during this current transfer window. It comes as no surprise that they’ve spent much more than they’ve generated, though.
Arrivals at the club include goalkeeper Scott Carson from Derby County on a free transfer, 18-year-old right-winger Kayky from Fluminense for £9 million and, of course, left-winger Jack Grealish from Aston Villa for just over £105 million.
Departures include left-back Angelino to RB Leipzig for a fee of around £16.2 million, left-winger Jack Harrison to Leeds United for a fee of £11.52 million, centre-forward Lukas Nmecha to Wolfsburg for around £7 million and centre-forward Sergio Aguero to Barcelona on a free transfer.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has been very busy during this transfer window, which makes Arsenal’s start to the season that little more concerning. As things stand, Arsenal have a net spend of £-105.84 million this summer.
While their only sale has been the £26.46 million sale of Joe Willock to Newcastle United, arrivals include £52.65 million Ben White from Brighton, £31.5 million Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid, £25.2 million Aaron Ramsdale from Sheffield United, £15.75 million Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht and £7.2 million Nuno Tavares from Benfica.
