Man City v Arsenal: Goals to flow like a river in monsoon season

| 17.01.2015

Those fans lucky enough to have a ticket for the game, not to mention the armchair or pub-visiting ones, are in for treat when Manchester City host Arsenal in the Premier League for Sunday’s late televised kick-off.

That is if the trend for barnstorming clashes between the two clubs in Manchester continues, and there is every reason to believe it will.

As was the case back in September when the reverse fixture finished 2-2 at the Emirates, the last seven league meetings at the Etihad between the foes have produced an average of exactly four goals per game.

Punters can grab 18/5 on exactly four goals to be scored again in the North West, while a slightly more conservative approach would mean sweeping up the 11/8 about over 3.5.

If last season’s 6-3 thriller was anything to go by, then 29/10 on over 4.5 has plenty of appeal too, especially as City have shipped two goals per game from their last pair of home games in the top flight.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have conceded six times in their last three away from home and with the array of attacking talent on display, the floodgates look unlikely to stay shut for too long.

The champions are due to welcome back their top scorer Sergio Aguero to the starting XI after more than a month out of it, while Alexis Sanchez has now scored three times in his last two game for the visitors.

Both those men are subjects of first goalscorer price boosts for the match and both South Americans were on the scoresheet when the teams met earlier in the season.

If picking a winner, it has to be City at 4/5 given their current 12-match unbeaten streak, return to fitness of key players including captain Vincent Kompany and record of picking up 23 points from 30 available so far this term, only bettered by Chelsea.
