Manchester City have won 10 of their last 12 home games in the Premier League. In all seven previous home matches of citizens in the Premier League, the bet total over 2.5 was played. Arsenal have won only 3 of their 13 league games away. In five of the eight previous away matches of the Gunners in the Premier League, the bet "total over 2.5" was played. Manchester City have beaten Arsenal in seven of their previous eight head-to-head matches. The misfire happened just this summer in the FA Cup. Arsenal beat the Citizens at Wembley (2-0), reaching the final of the tournament. In the championship, MC defeated the Gunners twice, 3:0.

Manchester City

Despite beginning the season on the front-foot, the Rajasthan Royals performances dwindled soon enough. Embarking on a five-game losing streak, RR suddenly emerged as favorites to finish at the bottom of the standings. However, they seem rejuvenated in recent games, defeating fellow strugglers SRH before narrowly losing out to table-toppers Delhi Capitals on the last matchday. Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler were in magnificent form on the day, causing DC all sorts of troubles. Steve Smith will be counting on these two to come up with the goods, once again, in this upcoming contest. When it comes to bowling, Jofra Archer has been the stand-out performer for RR, showing consistency in all his games, but has suffered from a lack of support from fellow bowlers.

Arsenal

On the other hand, Arsenal had a great start. In seven official meetings, in which the Gunners took part, they lost only once. Three times during this time, Mikel Arteta’s team played with Liverpool, just losing to the Reds at Anfield in the championship (1:3). In other meetings, Arsenal lost peace with the Lersisides, after which they won on penalties. The remaining four matches Arteta’s wards won in regulation time. Arsenal beat West Ham (2-1), Sheffield United (2-1) and beat Fulham (3-0) in the league and beat (2-0) Leicester in the League Cup. Despite the success this season, the away form of Arsenal remains not the brightest. The Gunners have won 3 of 13 previous away matches in the Premier League. True, all of Arteta’s victories came at a time after the season resumed, so we can say that Arsenal’s away game has improved. In away games in this championship, the Gunners beat Fulham (3-0) and lost to Liverpool (1:3). The personnel situation at Arsenal remains open to question. Shkodran Mustafi, Calum Chambers and Gabriel Martinelli are in the infirmary at the club. Lucas Torreira and Matteo Genduzi left the team. It is unknown if Kieran Tierney, Pablo Marie, Riss Nelson and Emil Smith Rowe will be able to play.

Prediction

Before this meeting, Arsenal no longer looks like a whipping boy as it used to be. Manchester City have not experienced any problems in matches with the Gunners in recent years. On the other hand, 14th place in 4 rounds is definitely not what Josep Guardiola is used to. It is hard to imagine that the "townspeople" will allow themselves to lose this match. Given that Manchester City will play against Arsenal at home, whereas Arsenal are still relatively weak away, you can bet on goals here. Our prediction is that both will score + total under 5.5 in 2.00 in BC 1xBet. Place a bet on the line of 1xBet with odds of 2.00 Promo code for registration - ODDS2WIN.
