Arsenal v Man City: Gunners to bounce back from Wembley shambles

| 01.03.2018

Arsenal and Manchester City face off for the second time in a week, as Arsene Wenger’s men gear up to avenge Sunday’s 3-0 humiliation in the Carabao Cup final.

While the Gunners were poor at Wembley, even the most pessimistic Gooner couldn’t fault the side’s home league form this term. The North London club have picked up 32 points from 13 Premier League games at the Emirates, losing just once.

There’s no doubt that Pep Guardiola’s men are the best side in England right now, but they’ve rarely been top dogs on prior visits here.

In fact, City haven’t won on their last four visits to the Emirates. Double Chance: Arsenal or Draw is available at 23/20.

Whoever comes out on top, we’re likely to see a flurry of goals. The hosts have registered in 12 home games on the trot. As for City, they’ve scored 12 times in their last four matches. It’s 1/2 for Both Teams to Score tonight.

Six of Arsenal’s last nine Prem games have also seen both sides register after the break, and there’s 29/20 on offer for BTTS in Second Half.

So, who could be the difference-makers in this clash?

Raheem Sterling has found the net against Arsenal for both City and former club Liverpool. The England international is 7/4 to Net Anytime. Meanwhile, our traders make him 11/2 to be Last Goalscorer for the 10th time this season.

One man who’s been coming up with the goods for the Gunners is Nacho Monreal. The Spanish defender has scored in three of his last outings, and registered in last season’s FA Cup victory over the Citizens. He’s 9/1 to Score Anytime.

In the Match Betting, Man City are 3/4 favourites. There’s 17/5 for an Arsenal Win, while the Draw is on offer at 16/5.
