Arsenal vs Manchester City
The best game of the opening round in English Premier League. Arsenal will host Manchester City.
Arsenal with new manager, Unai Emery, so this season will show whether it was a problem in Venger or it was something else.
In any case, on premiere Arsenal has very difficult task, meeting with the defending champion.
If it is by the start of the season, Man City is again top favorite. Namely they easily overcome Chelsea in the game of the Community Shield. City scored 2 back then, could and should score at least as much more if Aguero wasn't so selfish in some situations.
Chelsea on the other side was completely harmless so City finished the match with clean sheet. But we should mention that Chelsea was heavily weakened in the mentioned game.
So, IMO Arsenal will put the champion on much bigger test. First game and at home and with new manager, those are IMO great reasons to believe in Arsenal today. Whether it will be enough for good result, it is hard to tell when opponent is so strong but I definitely believe in goals and on both sides.
We have pretty much the same odds for this btts & over 2.5 option and for City win. IMO goals are way better choice of these two.
