Man City – Arsenal, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MAN CITY - ARSENAL
Although City lost to Newcastle, luckily Liverpool also failed and the difference did not become 7 points, but only 5, which is still not a big difference, given that there are 14 games left. And City will have an advantage as they have a draw with Everton during the week. Most of their matches are before Liverpools, which obviously puts the Reds under pressure.
Arsenal bought Dennis Suarez a few days ago to help Gunners in the midfield. Their defensive problems, however, remain constant and they can not get rid of it. Although they were one of the few top teams with a win during the week, they did not keep a clean sheet again in their win over Cardiff with 2-1. Arsenal is extremely vulnerable in the visits so fans can hardly expect 3 points here.
City beat Arsenal easily 2-0 earlier in the season at Emirates, and now citizens return to Etihad, where they have lost only 3 points since the start of the campaign and are brilliant. We do not think they are able to make a wrong step again, especially against a rival like Arsenal, who is currently conceding goals constantly. City has the strongest attack in the league and from the last 9 games between the two teams scored at least 2 goals against Arsenal in 8 of them. Prediction – City to score in both halves at 1.75
