Man City v Arsenal Past Meetings

Perhaps surprisingly, Manchester City have only won one of their last nine meetings with Arsenal across all competitions.

This win came in the corresponding fixture last season, when the hosts came from behind to triumph 2-1.

The return clash at the Emirates ended 2-2 before Arsenal defeated City 2-1, after extra time, in the FA Cup semi-final.

Before last December’s home win, you have to go back a full three years before City had defeated Arsene Wenger’s men.

Man City v Arsenal Stats

Manchester City (35) are the top goalscorers in the division while Arsenal (19) are joint third.

Pep Guardiola’s  side have kept six clean sheets this season, behind only city rivals United (8) while Arsenal’s goals against tally (13) is worse than 17th-placed Swansea.

The Gunners 5-2 win at Everton a fortnight ago was their first victory on the road this season in five attempts.

City have dropped their only points of the season so far at the Etihad – a 1-1 draw with Everton – while they were also recently held 0-0 in the League Cup by Wolves, whom they eventually defeated on penalties.


Man City v Arsenal Team News

City will be without captain Vincent Kompany (calf strain), who is still thought to be a fortnight away from a return for fitness while long-term absentee Benjamin Mendy (ACL knee).

Arsenal have four injury absentees with David Ospina, Dann Welbeck (both groin), Shkodran Mustafi (thigh) and Santi Cazorla (plantaris) all ruled out of the match.


Reason for Man City v Arsenal Bets

Much of the debate going into this game is regarding the blistering early-season form of the hosts, having already established a five-point lead in the Premier League.

However, little has been made of just how impressive Arsenal’s recent record in this fixture is – with their only loss in the last four years being narrow and somewhat unfortunate.

Furthermore, City played a high-intensity match in Naples only four days previously while Arsenal’s home clash with Red Star Belgrade on Thursday night was low-key and furthermore, Wenger is likely to entirely change his starting XI again for Sunday’s clash.

Arsenal will be fresh and they will look to exploit City’s full-backs as they did last season, with Fabian Delph a likely left-back the visible weak spot.

Both these sides are stronger offensively than defensively and we can expect goals, with four or more to be expected.

Three of the last five meetings between the two have ended this way while each of City’s last two fixtures have also ended this way.
