Arsenal vs Man City Predictions
Man City To Win @ 2.25 (5/4)
Last season, Man City clinched their third consecutive EPL title. This season, they’re setting their sights on a fourth, as projected in our EPL 23/24 title predictions. City have consistently outperformed the Gunners, with 12 consecutive EPL wins against them. While both teams have shown similar statistics in possession, shots, and passing this season, Pep’s tactical prowess and high-quality offense give City the edge.
Total Goals – Over 2.5 @ 1.73 (8/11)
Over the last two seasons, the EPL clashes between these teams have consistently seen over two goals. Their most recent face-off resulted in a 4-1 victory for Man City at the Etihad. Both teams have produced over two goals in four of their last five EPL matches. Thus, we anticipate a high-scoring game in this upcoming encounter.
Erling Haaland To Score Anytime – Yes @ 2.30 (13/10)
Even though he hasn’t found the net in his last three games, the Norwegian striker maintains his impressive form from last season. Haaland already has eight EPL goals this season and will be looking to add more. He scored the crucial goals against Arsenal in both legs last season, and football betting sites favor him to get on the scoresheet on Sunday with 2.30 (13/10) odds.
