We’re back with another belter of a Premier League prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net, with blockbuster fixtures being served up as and when they happen. As usually, our team of football experts are on hand to bring you the very best Premier League tips, betting info and predictions for this weekend.
For our Premier League predictions today, it’s apprentice vs master, as Arteta’s Arsenal host Pep’s city inside and empty Emirates. Can Arsenal stop the City juggernaut? Read our Premier League tips and predictions below to find out what our experts think!
After clawing their way out of the “crisis club” phase by putting together an unbeaten run, Arsenal hit a bit of snag with back to back defeats, however last weekend’s home win over Leeds saw Aubamayang return to his best with an emphatic hattrick. Thing looks a bit more stable overall in the Arsenal camp, and our Premier League predictions suggest a pragmatic approach from Arteta on Sunday. They do have an away trip to Benfica on Thursday night, which might influence preparations for this game, however we do expect some squad rotation from Arteta.
Premier League predictions were once impossible to conjure up this season, however City have now every much put an end to that. Their Wednesday night win over Everton at Goodison was their 16th win on the bounce as Pep’s men now look to be almost in cruise control in their pursuit of the Premier League title. City look hard to stop, largely thanks to a marriage of Gundogan and Foden’s from, alongside Pep’s tactical cracking of football in the pandemic era. Still no Aguero, but plenty of goals elsewhere for the men in blue.
Arteta took charge of Arsenal little over 14 months ago, and yet this will be the fifth time he has come up against his former mentor since doing so – most SPFL teams haven’t met each other in that time! The head to head record favours the master far more than the apprentice, with Pep enjoying a 3-1 record over his former assistant. Arteta’s one victory was a big one though – a 2-0 win at Wembley in the FA Cup semi final, with the Gunners going on to lift the trophy. In the League, however, Arsenal are still chasing their first win over City since 2015.
As part of our Premier League prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net, we’ve provided you with the results fo the last five games between Arsenal and Manchester City. In addition, you’ll also find three interesting statistical highlights that have aided our experts in selecting our chosen top for this fixture.
Having analysed the above information, our Premier League predictions today suggest a City win on Sunday.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, we’re going for a City win here – most likely – but we do expect it to be a closer game than you might expect. City have scored three goals in each of their last three games, having only conceded two, therefore Arteta will want to prevent that. Given Arsenal’s current state and City’s unstoppable form, anything that avoids a humiliating defeat for Arsenal will probably be deemed acceptable. A modest scoreline will be the ultimate goal for Arteta, whatever the result may be. Our betting tip for this one is therefore two goals to be scored exactly, at odds of 3.75 with Bet365. We believe that will most likely come in the form of a 2-0 City win, for those of you seeking a braver bet, however we’re not completely ruling out a 1-1 draw either.
