The game of the week in the Premier League comes from the Ethiad as Manchester City take on Arsenal. Arsene Wengers side will be looking to put in a big performance at the Ethiad as the Gunners have failed to beat any of the top teams this year and have taken no points away from home against the top sides for the last two years. Arsenal have one of the best players in the league in Alexis Sanchez as the Chilean striker has been superb this year and is only a couple of goals off the top scorer charts. With Cazorla playing excellent football and Giroud and Wellbeck alternating through the center Arsenal have looked terrific at times and have won four of their last five to bring themselves back up to sixth in the table and are only four points off fourth and the Champions League spots.
Manchester City managed to cut a seven point gap to Chelsea over Christmas and were level at the top of the table until last week but a draw at Everton last week was costly as they are now five behind Chelsea (with a game in hand). Manchester City will miss Ya Ya Toure as he is away on International duty at the African Cup of Nations but with Fernando and Fernandinho to come in they should not miss Toure too much. Sergio Aguero is back and while not at full fitness should be able to come in from the bench tomorrow. Manuel Pelligrini has an array of stars at his disposal but his strikers have been misfiring of late and he has been saved by Nasri and Silva in recent weeks. This should be an entertaining game and one that is tough to call.
Taking the overs here. I like both teams offensively and I think that while Manchester City have struggled a little of late the return of Sergio Aguero will be a massive addition to the Citizens. Alexis Sanchez has been unstoppable for Arsenal of late and I think he fancies his chances here tomorrow. Take the overs and cash a winner. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
