Arsenal and Manchester City face off in an English Premier League showdown on Saturday at the City of Manchester Stadium,
Manchester City doesn’t have a whole lot more room for wiggle room if they want to win the Premier League after their start to the season. This is a team that lost to Leicester City and their last game was a 1-1 draw to Leeds United. In that last game, Manchester City only had 47 percent of the possession and they could only manage two shots on target. One of those shots did go in the back of the net but this is a team that has too much talent to be playing to a draw against Leeds United. Raheem Sterling has been the best player for Manchester City and in this game they need him along with their other superstars to put a couple goals in the back of the net. This is a game that Manchester City needs to find a way to get three points out of.
On the other side of this matchup is Arsenal who currently sit in 4th place in the Premier League and a win in this game would really open up some eyes. There are some who believe this team can compete for that top spot, but a win in this game would go a long way in making that happen. The only loss for this team this season was against Liverpool, a game they scored three goals in.in the other three games, Arsenal scored at least two goals, including in their last game against Sheffield United where they won 2-1.If Arsenal wants to win this game it’s going to be important they control the possession and they aren’t just trying to attack on the counter attack.
Manchester City is getting healthy, but this is a game where Arsenal is going to find success. Arsenal is going to attack a Manchester City defense that hasn’t been great. Back Arsenal to win this game at a high plus number. in terms of the total the over is the play and I like both of these plays.
