What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Man City
Arsenal were soundly beaten by Manchester City in Sunday’s EFL Cup final and our Trueform ratings suggests the Blues can again have the edge in the Premier League on Thursday.
Three of their last five ratings are very similar, but the Blues’ greater consistency in the other two fixtures earns them our vote.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal could argue that City’s first goal at Wembley was controversial, with Sergio Aguero appearing to nudge Shkodran Mustafi before racing clear to score.
Arsene Wenger also felt there was an offside missed against Leroy Sane as Vincent Kompany bagged the Blues’ second.
However, he admitted: “We go away disappointed. I feel a little bit that everything went against us, but we self-inflicted our punishment.”
Just as worrying, though, was the fact that Arsenal were pretty much toothless in attack and Wenger may turn to the cup-tied Henrikh Mkhitaryan for some inspiration here.
Having a big home crowd behind them should also make a difference.
Looking at the Arsenal vs Man City odds, we like 13/4 for the visitors to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
Manchester City do not have a great record at Emirates Stadium, with three score draws and a 2-1 loss here over the past four seasons.
Pep Guardiola’s side have been on a different level to the rest of the Premier League this season, though, and were totally dominant at Wembley.
David Silva wrapped up the 3-0 victory and Kevin De Bruyne insisted there is no chance of City resting on their laurels, even with a 13-point lead at the top of the table.
The midfielder said: “It is very nice to win but it is just the beginning, we still have a lot to play for and Thursday is another game.
“It is very nice to already have a title in the bag, we have had a wonderful season until now and I think we fully deserved it.
“Now we have to go on and try to win the Premier League and do well in the Champions League.”
We’re finishing off our Arsenal vs Man City betting tips by taking 5/4 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the game.
