Manchester City 3-2

Manchester City vs Arsenal Predictions

  • Manchester City have failed to keep a clean sheet in four of their last six home games.
  • Manchester City have won their last five meetings with Arsenal.
  • Four of Arsenal’s last six games have featured over 2.5 goals.
  • Eddie Nketiah has scored six goals in as many games since the World Cup break.

A fantastic start to the FA Cup fourth round weekend

Currently five points behind Arsenal in the race for the Premier League title, Manchester City enter this clash with both league meetings to come looking to send a message of intent. The Citizens have won each of their last nine FA Cup matches, scoring at least three goals in each win.

City boss Pep Guardiola won’t be too afraid of his former assistant Mikel Arteta either, having won 13 of his 16 personal encounters with the Gunners over the years (W13, D1, L2). As such, only a fool would back against City holding up their end of the bargain by at the very least getting on the scoresheet.

Many had suggested that 25-goal man Erling Haaland was the problem for Manchester City as they slipped yet further from Arsenal in the Premier League title race, yet the Norwegian has scored more goals than nine sides in the division and will be hoping to give Arsenal a taste of his fury in this FA Cup clash.

Go for goals in this mouth-watering encounter

Currently unbeaten in seven straight games ahead of this match, Arsenal head to the Etihad in high spirits. This is something of a free hit for the record-holding 14-time FA Cup winners, although victory would give cause for excitement given that they went on to win the competition in the last three editions in which they knocked City out.

Mikel Arteta’s men are averaging 2.4 goals scored per Premier League game this season and playing against the big boys hasn’t particularly fazed them either, recently bagging multi-goal hauls against the likes of Manchester United (W2-1), and bitter rivals Spurs (W2-0).

With both teams so closely matched in every department, we’re going to dive into the BTTS & over 2.5 goals market for our main selection. For smaller stakes, we’re going for City to edge out a cracking encounter by a 3-2 scoreline and Eddie Nketiah to score anytime, further bolstering his six-goal haul since the restart.

However, if you fancy The Gunners to continue their red hot form at The Etihad Stadium on Friday, new William Hill customers can back them at a massive 70/1 below!
