Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Preview and Tips 15/12/2019

Defeat in last weekend’s Manchester derby surely ended any hopes that Manchester City had of winning the Premier League for a third season in a row. The gap to the top is now too big and Liverpool’s form too strong to believe that Man City will be able to turn things around.

Whilst there are clearly problems with Man City at the moment their fans will hope that a release of the pressure on the team will bring the best out of them. City have also played some very good football in recent weeks with the 4-1 wins over Burnley and then Dinamo Zagreb particularly impressive.

Arsenal fans must be concerned about another high class attacking performance from Man City when they visit the Emirates early on Sunday evening. The Gunners may have finally secured a win with the 3-1 success of West Ham on Monday night but that match posed more questions than it answered and Sunday could be another chastening experience for Arsenal.

Man City to Take Control

It was a special 10-minute spell that saved Monday’s match for Arsenal. Their forward line can be world-class when it clicks into place for them and they certainly showed what they’re all about with three goals in quick succession at the London Stadium.

Other than that, Arsenal were actually very poor against West Ham. The travelling fans felt so strongly about the Gunners’ performance that they booed their team off at half-time and made it clear after the match that they expect much better in the future.

Manchester City are not going to capitulate in the same way as West Ham if they get into a winning position at the Emirates. The Citizens may well be some way from their best but they are more than good enough to score an early goal and then control the game against Arsenal.

The bookies are confident enough about Man City’s chances of winning that they’ve installed the away side as the odds-on favourites to win. The general price of 4/9 available about the home side looks a little short for a team struggling for consistency but a bet on the Man City/Man City selection in Coral’s Half Time/Full Time market is well priced at 23/20.

Sterling to Enjoy His Return to the Capital

Raheem Sterling is revered in Manchester by the Man City fans but he remains a Londoner at heart. He was brought up not too far away from the Emirates and tends to enjoy his trips back to the capital with club and country.

Sterling is one of the few players to have improved for City this season. He is now right up there with the very best attacking players in the world in most people’s estimation and has already scored eight Premier League goals this season.

He has all the tools necessary to cut through an Arsenal defence which has had myriad problems of late so back Sterling to score the game’s first goal at 9/2 with bet365.
