Premier League picks Arsenal Manchester City Betting Preview and tips
Arsenal Manchester City Betting Preview
Arsenal is coming into this derby game after a unexpected loss to Queens Park Rangers away from home last weekend, when they have lost by 2:1 result. This loss damaged their chances of staying in top 3 in Premier League as it came really sudden, unexpected while Arsenal were in a really good form having won previous six matches. Their great run was interrupted with an unexpected loss as said and they will surely be looking to bounce back with a win here against great opponent which seems to be a bit out of their best form. Confidence is high in Arsenal team as they are performing very well at home (recent victories at their stadium were: 3:0 vs Aston Villa, 2:1 vs Newcastle, 4:0 vs Milan in Champions League, 5:2 vs Tottenham) and with a win here they would get closer to the Champions League ticket. Hosts are boosted with the return of Samir Nasri.
Manchester City, on the other side, is in a title race but it seems like it is slipping away from them. United is simply in much better form and were more consistent in last two months and is now on five points difference with an quite easy game in front of their own fans. City is coming from on the road 1:1 when they were more than better opponent and last weekend against Sunderland 3:3 at home, although they were 0:3 down. With this draw, their title dreams are close to an end, but they will surely not give up on that easily. Still, their team chemistry and form, especially away from home, are not at desired level and it won’t be a surprise if the title winner gets decided tonight. Sergio Aguero is back in squad following his injury.
City have won only twice since November in Premier League and being in quite poor form at this moment I can’t see them winning this one. Simply everything points out that United will celebrate their new title very soon, while the Gunners are playing more than well at their own home.
