Arsenal-City in Huge Top 4 Clash Sunday

Arsenal Manchester City Premier League

In what could be the biggest match of the weekend and potentially the biggest of the season for either club involved, Manchester City hosts Arsenal in a game with massive top-four implications.

Shark Bites
  • Arsenal won the reverse fixture 2-1 back in December.
  • UNDER is 3-1 in the previous four meetings at Manchester City.
  • Arsenal is unbeaten in its last five games versus Manchester City (all competitions).

Manchester City is currently being offered as a slight fave at +150 at online book Bet365 while visiting Arsenal is +190 and the Draw is +260 in moneyline markets. As for the total, OVER 2.5 goals is -143 while UNDER 2.5 goals is priced at +110.

As we enter the weekend, Arsenal sits third in the table on 67 points and are just three behind North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. It would salvage a rather unremarkable season for the Gunners if they could finish ahead of their lilywhite neighbors, saving themselves the embarrassment of being leapfrogged by Spurs.

Three points behind Arsenal is Manchester City. The Citizens were eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid earlier in the week and will now focus on getting back the best competition in Europe courtesy a strong finish in the league.

Compounding matters for City, however, is the fact that they were throttled 4-2 by Southampton in their last league match. The status of defender Vincent Kompany will be of massive concern. The Belgian left Wednesday’s meeting with Madrid after just 10 minutes with an injury and could miss the remainder of the season.

The Gunners have been in excellent form and have four wins and four draws in their last eight league games. They are coming off a 1-0 win over relegation-fighting Norwich thanks to a Danny Welbeck goal in the 59th minute.
