Arsenal v Manchester City: Silva bullet to shoot Gunners down

| 13.09.2014

A fascinating Premier League encounter is in the offing at the Emirates this Saturday with both Arsenal and Manchester City looking to bounce back from previous disappointments.

The hosts are 9/5 outsiders for victory with Ladbrokes after being held to a 1-1 draw last time out against newly-promoted Leicester, with another stalemate available at odds of 5/2 with the bookmaker ahead of kick-off.

Not that City are in particularly great shape either, with the Premier League champions on at 7/5 for the win in the wake of their shock 1-0 defeat to Stoke City at the Etihad two weeks ago.

Ahead of this big encounter, we’ve got three equally enormous tips to tickle your fancy – read on for all the details:

David Silva to score anytime @ 10/3

The Spaniard enjoyed himself against Arsenal last season, scoring both home and away for the Sky Blues against the Gunners and having already found the net against Newcastle at St James’ Park this season, it wouldn’t be a big surprise to see Silva get a goal when the teams meet at the Emirates.

Match result with both teams to score – Score draw @ 33/10

The last time these two met in north London, City left the capital with a valuable point and while a draw is unlikely to suit either team, a repeat could well be on the cards. Given that two of their last four Premier League encounters have ended in score draws, another looks a sensible suggestion.

Manchester City to be winning after 30 minutes @ 5/2

City have started well in recent Premier League encounters with Arsenal and while that hasn’t always equated to three points come the end of 90 minutes, they have been ahead on the half hour mark in each of their last three top-flight meetings. Given the price, this looks too tempting to resist.
