Man City v Arsenal Football Betting
Premier League Football Betting & Odds
Premier League Match Betting Overview
The apprentice takes on his master as Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal visit the Etihad to take on Pep Guardiola’s champions, Man City. Arteta worked under Pep at City, and it is common knowledge that they share the same footballing philosophy. The major current difference between the two is Pep’s access to seemingly unlimited transfer funds to build a team capable of beating everyone, whilst Arteta has to tolerate being part of a club that is apparently much in decline.
Can Arsenal pull off an almighty shock here?
Man City Football Betting
Captain Kevin de Bruyne could return for City. The midfielder has had to be patient in his recovery from injury, after suffering facial fractures in the Champions League final defeat to Chelsea, followed by a nasty ankle injury at the Euros. The playmaker has truly been through the wars. He made a short cameo against Spurs in their season opener, and now looks ready to make his claim in the talented squad. John Stones is also expected to be in contention, following a prolonged rest after his Euro campaign with England.
Phil Foden is not expected back until mid-late September.
Arsenal Football Betting
After two games with five goals conceded, and not a single point or goal to show in return, the prospect of facing City on their turf is a tough one for Arsenal. However, the potential returns of Alexandre Lacazette, Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gives great attacking hope for the Gunners. The fact that all three scored in the 6-0 victory over WBA – including an Aubameyang hattrick – bodes well for helping to get Arsenal’s season back on track.
Thomas Partey will miss the clash, whilst Kieran Tierney will be monitored after coming off against Chelsea in the last game.
