Our "Prediction Wizard" will calculate, based on the current available betting odds, the implicit winning percentages for the possible outcomes in a match. This will be updated as soon as we fetch the odds from the betting sites and keep updating until the match is finished.
Manchester recovered from an early shock defeat to register a comprehensive win in its second Premier League match. Arsenal has lost both of its matches so far but it did manage to get a mid-week boost with a 6-0 win against West Brom in the EFL Cup. We would like to point out that West Brom was fielding a weak team and that scoreline is definitely misleading.
Arsenal will welcome back Alexandre Lacazette and Martin Odegaard for this match so it should be able to pose more of a threat. Manchester City has been in the news that Cristiano Ronaldo might be joining the club now that their original target, Harry Kane, has confirmed he will be staying with Tottenham.
EPL match prediction and football betting tips for Manchester City vs Arsenal, Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester on the 28th of August 2021.
Manchester City has had the better of Arsenal for quite some time now. Just one out of the last eleven matches between the two have been won by Arsenal, the remaining all being won by Manchester City. We saw how easily City put 5 past Norwich in the previous match and it definitely has the attack to get past Arsenal's struggling defense.
The likes of Gabrial Jesus (2 assists in the previous match) and Raheem Stirling (goal against Norwich) are two players we think could make an impact in this match as well but there is so much more quality around that getting goals should not be a problem for Arsenal. The return of two of its best strikers and a morale-boosting win in mid-week make Arsenal more dangerous but we still don't see them being able to turn things around against Manchester City.
Bet on Manchester City to win.
Arsenal has not scored a goal in the Premier League this season. It has also been kept scoreless by Manchester City in four out of the previous five these teams have played against each other. While Arsenal has more attacking options for this contest, we think they are going to struggle to find the back of the net against a very well organized Manchester City defense.
We think this is an excellent value bet as Manchester City tends to start fast out of the blocks. It will put pressure on the Arsenal defense right from the go and there is a good chance that it will force a mistake. Seeing Manchester City lead in the first half and at the end of the match is not very difficult at all.
