Boasting an excellent record against Wenger's men in recent years, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Citizens' record scorer to break the 200 mark

Having scored the first of Manchester City’s three goals in their emphatic Carabao Cup final victory over Arsenal, Sergio Aguero will be aiming for another significant strike when the sides meet in the Premier League on Thursday.

The Argentina international has now scored in five consecutive appearances against Arsene Wenger’s team, with Sunday's goal taking his tally to 199 goals for the Citizens.

He has 15 goals to his name in his last 13 matches, making him the worthy 7/2 (4.50) favourite with bet365 to open the scoring once again in this clash, as well as 4/5 (1.80) to strike anytime.

Jesus to net on return?

Aguero actually lost his place in the team earlier on in the season to Gabriel Jesus, who is on offer at 11/10 (2.10) to score his first goal since November after returning from a long injury lay-off at Wembley.

Raheem Sterling missed the final with a muscle injury, but can be backed at 11/8 (2.38) to make a goal-scoring return to the team by adding to his 20 for the campaign so far.

Should he fail to return then Leroy Sane will fancy his chances against a team he has scored past in two of the previous three league encounters, and is available at 7/4 (2.75) to hit the back of the net once again.

Goals for Auba?

At the other end of the pitch, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be aiming to prove his big match credentials after an anonymous display in Sunday’s final.

The Gunners’ record signing was on target in his only previous game at the Emirates Stadium, and is priced at 13/2 (7.50) to do so once again with the opening goal, or 13/8 (2.63) anytime.

Cup-tied for the Wembley clash, new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan is on offer at 11/4 (3.75) to get off the mark for his new club, as is fellow former Manchester United man Danny Welbeck.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
