Manchester City v Arsenal: Betting preview

Arsenal take on title holders Man city at the Etihad on Sunday (4pm KO, Live on Sky Sports 1) and look worth a wager at 3.5 with bet365 in the draw/no bet market.

City have lost none of their last 31 Premier League home matches, and have won three of the last four on their own patch against the Gunners.

But they have not looked as invincible this season and struggled to beat Southampton 3-2 before a far less than convincing 3-1 victory over QPR and a 1-1 draw away at stoke

They also come into the game on the back of a 3-2 Champions league defeat at the hands of Real Madrid where their defensive frailties were once again clear for all to see.

Arsenal, on the other hand,  have looked rock solid at the back this season and have let in only one goal so far. They have also started to look more deadly in front of goal, thrashing  Southampton 6-1 before putting in a solid performance to beat Montepellier 2-1 in France on Tuesday.

I think they are more than capable of coming away with at least a point in this, and although tempted to back them to win at what looks a big price of 5 with Boylesports in the outright market the 3.5 on offer with bet365 in the draw/no bet market looks the far safer option.

Lukas Poldoski has been a cracking signing for the Gunners, and is going to be a real handful for the City defence. I like the look of the 9 on offer with bet365 and Boylesports for him to score first.

Boylesports also offer 3.5 about the German getting on the scoresheet during the 90 minutes and that makes plenty of appeal.

Olivier Giroud, who is still to net since his move to the Gunners, also looks worth a second look in the anytime scorer market. The Frenchman is a class act and it’s surely only a matter if time before he breaks his duck. Boylesports will give you 4 about it being in this.

I think this is going to be real tight fought affair, and given that City have managed to score just one goal in their last five Premier League games against Arsene Wenger’s men I am going to go for Arsenal to hopefully grind out a 2-1 victory.

That outcome is a 17 chance with Betfred.подпочвени води
