Manchester City 1/1 to beat Arsenal in Sundays Premier League matchup
Competition: Premier League
Market: Manchester City win
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
After lifting the Community Shield with a 2-0 win over Chelsea at Wembley last weekend, last years Premier League record-breakers Manchester City will look to get off to a winning start when they travel to the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts on Saturday, after another poor year domestically, Arene Wenger’s tenure in North London came to and end and they keys to the Emirates have now been passed onto former PSG coach Unai Emery. In their 38 Premier League games last season, The Gunners won 19, drew six and lost 13, scoring 74 and conceding 51 in return. With a points tally of 63, they ended the year with just a spot in the Europa League and 14 points adrift of the Top Four. As for their recent form, Arsenal have impressed under their new boss and have won four of their final five pre-season matches. While we do believe a new look Arsenal will cause a tough test, they were taken to penalties by both Atletico and Chelsea and keeping City at bay could be a task to much.
As for last years Premier League champions, after adding the Community Shield to their trophy cabinet last weekend, Manchester City appear to be in fine form entering the new season. Winning 32 of their 38 games, drawing just four and losing twice, they scored 106 goals and conceded just 27 in return, finishing with both the best attacking and defensive record in the division. As for their recent form, along with beating Chelsea 2-0 and putting on a scintillating performance, they also put three past Bundesliga kings Bayern Munich.
