What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Man City
Arsenal were a poor sixth in the Premier League last season but earned some good Trueform ratings late on, especially during a run of five straight home wins in this competition.
The Gunners will now begin life after Arsene Wenger by taking on champions Manchester City and would no doubt settle for an Emirates Stadium stalemate.
The Blues started last season’s record-breaking campaign by dropping just two points in 20 games, but the World Cup may affect their early preparations this term.
Everything points towards a close contest in north London and 27/10 for a draw is our first Arsenal vs Man City prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Former Valencia, Sevilla and PSG boss Unai Emery will be keen to make an instant impression on Arsenal fans after replacing the legendary Wenger.
The Spaniard seems to be relatively happy with the squad he has inherited, bringing in solid recruits to add strength in depth, rather than embarking on a major overhaul.
Switzerland full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner, Greece defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira can all make an immediate impact.
Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno can challenge Petr Cech for playing time and Lorent midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is an interesting project.
The Gunners finished 37 points off the summit last term, but that was largely due to suffering from travel sickness, losing 11 times on the road.
At Emirates Stadium, they secured 15 victories and were only outscored by City in home fixtures.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
City started off strongly last season and built up an incredible amount of momentum throughout the campaign, ending up with 100 points and 106 goals scored.
Pep Guardiola’s high-pressing tactics took the Premier League by storm as the Blues broke record after record.
The question now is whether those same players will be able to summon up the energy and enthusiasm to repeat such stamina-sapping tactics.
A 2-0 Community Shield triumph over Chelsea augurs well, with Sergio Aguero bagging a fine brace and £60million winger Riyad Mahrez showing up well.
However, their opponents were well off the pace at Wembley that day and Guardiola admitted his players lacked sharpness at times too.
With a number of key men returning late from Russia 2018, it may be worth taking them on at this stage, before Guardiola can get this fine-tuned machine back up to full speed.
We’re adding 27/4 for a 1-1 draw to our Arsenal vs Man City betting tips.
Huddersfield 0-1 ARSENAL – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Southampton 0-1 MAN CITY – Gabriel Jesus
Head-to-head: Arsenal 0-3 Man City, Arsenal 0-3 Man City, Man City 3-1 Arsenal, Arsenal 2-1 Man City, Arsenal 2-2 Man City, Man City 2-1 Arsenal
