Manchester City v Arsenal betting tips

Man City host Arsenal at the Etihad on Sunday afternoon in one of the biggest Premier League clashes of the season. As it’s such a huge game, we have written our Manchester City v Arsenal Premier League Betting Tips. Reigning champions City are one point behind league leaders Arsenal in third. The Gunners are currently in pole position, edging second-placed Liverpool on goal difference. Both City and Arsenal come into this clash in excellent form, and an engaging match could be on the cards. Man City vs Arsenal kicks off at 4:30 p.m. It will be shown live on Sky Sports. 

Form and Team News

Man City are on a 22-match unbeaten run in all competitions and haven’t lost since December 6, 2023. The Citizens have also won 19 of these matches, but one of the team’s recent draws came at Liverpool (1-1) before the international break. Pep Guardiola’s side bounced back from this setback with a comfortable 2-0 FA Cup win against Newcastle. Arsenal have been in electric form, winning nine and losing once in their last 10. The Gunners are on an eight-match winning streak in the Premier League. A 2-1 win over Brentford capped this winning run, and Arsenal followed it with a 1-0 home victory over Porto in the Champions League. Mikel Arteta’s side then won on penalties to progress in Europe. 

Regarding team news, Man City have a clean bill of health. Arsenal’s only confirmed absentee is defender Jurriën Timber. 

Match Winner Bet

Man City are the pre-match favourites to win against Arsenal due to their home advantage. City have won their last four at the Etihad in all competitions and are unbeaten on home turf this season. Guardiola’s outfit have also won their last eight home games against Arsenal. Bet365 have the best potential returns for City to win and beat the Gunners for a ninth consecutive time at home, with 10/11 odds. However, Arsenal cannot be written off after winning eight league games in a row, including four on the road. Arteta’s side will also head to Manchester with confidence after defeating City 1-0 in the reverse fixture at the Emirates. Yet, the Gunners are still considered outsiders, as Unibet are offering 3/1 odds for an away win. Ultimately, City and Arsenal will not want to drop points against a title rival. Due to this, we expect a close-fought affair and we are tipping an Etihad draw. The Citizens have also dropped points at home in the Premier League recently, drawing four of their last nine. Arsenal will sense an opportunity to come away from the Etihad with a draw, and there is good value in a stalemate. At 29/10, William Hill has the best current odds for a Premier League draw.

Over/Under Betting

City and Arsenal have been scoring freely recently, but a potentially tighter match in this title clash could lead to a lower scorer. Recently, the Citizens have seen low-scoring results, with under 2.5 goals in five of their last six league matches. Chances have been infrequent in recent meetings between these sides too. City and Arsenal have seen under 2.5 goals in their last two meetings. Therefore, backing under 2.5 goals could be a strong pick on Sunday. In addition, there is solid value in backing this market and VBet has 19/17 odds for an under 2.5 goals scoreline. 

Anytime Goal Scorer Bets

A moment of quality could lead Man City or Arsenal to victory at the Etihad, and these players can provide the defining moment. Arsenal’s Kai Havertz has been rejuvenated recently and has added scoring consistency to his game. The German international has scored in four consecutive Premier League matches, including two away games. Backing in-form Havertz could be a decent outsider option on Sunday. At 4/1, Unibet has the best potential returns for a Havertz anytime goal. But, it is hard to look beyond Erling Haaland in the anytime goalscorer market, and he is our pick to strike against Arsenal. Haaland has seven goals in his last five matches and is the Premier League’s top scorer, with 18 goals. The Norwegian has struck two goals in three previous league games against the Gunners, and he could net again at the Etihad this weekend. At 11/10 odds, there is decent value in sticking with a Haaland anytime goal against Arsenal.
