Manchester City

The last championship of the English Premier League brought Manchester City the seventh title of the champion of the country. "Sky Blue" chalked up 27 wins and 83 goals were scored, which brought an early victory.

The performances of Pep Guardiola's wards in the Champions League ended in failure, where the team made it to the final, but could not beat the capital Chelsea. Unlucky for Man City the townspeople did not cope with Leicester at the start of the season, where in the match for the Super Cup of England they lost this trophy in the last minutes of the match.

Unsuccessfully, the Mankunians started in the Premier League. City lost the opening match with Tottenham (0:1), but already in the second round at home they left no chances for Norwich (5:0).

Newcomers to the team include Jack Grealish, who moved from Aston Villa for 117.5 million euros and Kaiki from Fluminense (10 million).

In the infirmary of the team are De Bruyne, Delap, Mendy and Foden, who has a leg injury.

Arsenal

Last season Arsenal did not even play enough to enter the European competition. For 38 rounds, the capital's team chalked up 18 victories and seven peaceful outcomes, which brought 61 points and eighth place in the standings.

The management has done a lot of work in the transfer market, where one cannot fail to note such newcomers as Ben White from Brighton (58.5 million), Anderlecht midfielder Albert Lokonga (17.5 million), defender Nuno Tavares from Benfica (8 million), Martin Odegard of Real Madrid (35 million) and Aaron Ramsdale of Sheffield United (28 million).

The Gunners failed in two starting matches of the new Premier League championship, losing to Brentford and Chelsea with the same score 0:2. The team was lucky this week in the League Cup, where the Red-Whites won an away match against West Brom (6:0).

Ballerin, Gabriel, Thomas and Niketia, who has an ankle injury, will not play tonight. Willian and White are still isolated with the coronavirus.

Prediction

Both teams had a bad start in the Premier League, but today we will give the reigning champion the advantage. Today "Man City" will have serious support from the stands. Besides, the team is practically in combat composition. Arsenal have recruited serious players who still need to adapt, while the epidemic of injuries is unlikely to have a positive effect on the result. We expect the reigning champion to win.

Our prediction is an Asian handicap (-1.5) at Manchester City and we bet on this using the 1xBet BC line with odds of 1.86.

For risk-lovers, we suggest paying attention to such a betting option as City's victory in two goals. In 5 of the last 7 head-to-head matches, the "townspeople" did not win with less difference.

The second bet is the victory of Man City by two goals in 4.05.
