Manchester City vs Arsenal Betting Tips

Date published: 6/16/2020 7:42:30 PM

Former City assistant Mikel Arteta will return to the Etihad and sit in the opposition dugout as he hopes to lead Arsenal to a victory over his former boss Pep Guardiola.

Since Arteta’s arrival at the Emirates, results have been gradually improving for the Gunners. The team currently sit ninth in the table however, they’re now only eight points away from the top four.

Manchester City, on the other hand, face a strange predicament when the season does resume. Pep Guardiola’s men are second in the standings however, the 25-point deficit to Liverpool means they would need a miracle to take the title away from the Reds.

What’s more, with the Citizens enjoying a 12-point cushion over fifth-placed Man United, it’s unlikely that they’ll lose their top four status either. 

Despite this, City will be keen to return to winning ways. Before the season came to a halt in March, Guardiola’s men had just lost 2-0 to a much-improved Manchester United side.

Arsenal, meanwhile, will be hoping to pick things up where they left off. Their last game saw the Gunners pick up a 1-0 win over West Ham; this was their fifth win in six games across all competitions.

The one major worry for Arteta’s men is the woeful record that his side have against City. The Manchester outfit have won this fixture six straight times and they haven’t lost one since 2015.

Even more worryingly, in their last five games against City, the London side have conceded 14 goals while managing to score just once.

Looking at the betting ahead of this game, it shows that the bookmakers clearly don’t have much faith in the visitors having priced them at 8/1. However, with both teams coming off a prolonged break, it’s hard to predict how the two teams will react.

With this in mind, the recommendation is to back the home side to win this game by a margin of one goal.

The first round of Bundesliga fixtures showed that the long lay off had caused a certain amount of rustiness in players. If the same happens here, we could be in for a close game.

    Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden netted for the hosts at the Etihad Stadium.

    Manchester City returned from the coronavirus suspension with a bang as substitute David Luiz’s rustiness cost Arsenal and delayed Liverpool’s title celebrations.

    After ‘Project Restart’ began with a scoreless draw between Aston Villa and Sheffield United, there was plenty to talk about as the Etihad Stadium witnessed the first Premier League goals in 100 days.

    City emerged 3-0 victors against Arsenal in front of empty stands as Pep Guardiola comfortably overcame former assistant Mikel Arteta, who saw substitute Luiz unravel as he gave away goals either side of half-time and got sent off.

    The result meant Jurgen Klopp’s men cannot seal the title at Everton this weekend, even though it remains a matter of when rather than if the Premier League trophy leaves the Etihad Stadium for Anfield.

    Luiz’s disastrous display came on a night of three serious-looking injuries, with the Brazilian replacing Pablo Mari in a match book-ended by Granit Xhaka and Eric Garcia leaving on a stretcher.

    The Brazil international may well have wished he stayed on the padded, social-distanced bench after undoing Bernd Leno’s good work by failing to deal with a ball that Raheem Sterling fired home late in the first half.

    Things got worse for Luiz shortly after the restart. After receiving a red card for bringing down Riyad Mahrez in the box, Kevin De Bruyne slotted home the spot-kick and substitute Phil Foden scored in stoppage-time to rub salt into Arsenal’s wounds.

    This was football but how we knew it in March. Social distancing was in operation as the top-flight resumed amid the pandemic, with the stadium split into zones, hygiene stations dotted everywhere and banners replacing fans in the stands.

    It was a surreal experience inside the Etihad Stadium, where the 300-or-so in attendance fell silent before kick-off to remember City great Glyn Pardoe and those impacted by Covid-19.

    Arteta’s positive test was the catalyst for English football’s suspension in mid-March and former mentor Guardiola’s mother Dolors Sala Carrio died after contracting the disease.

    Sterling told Sky Sports: “It’s been a confusing last couple of weeks, with no one knowing quite where we’re at but the lads were buzzing to be back at the stadium and on home turf we put in a good performance.

    “We expected it to be weird, but the message since we came back from the break we had is we’ve got to find something in ourselves, we had to dig deep and I thought the boys kept composure and fought to the end.

    “I think the first 10 (minutes) we were kind of getting used to the atmosphere, getting the cobwebs off but that after that we took our chances well.”
