Boasting a formidable record against Arsenal, Sergio Aguero will be hoping to steal the headlines for Manchester City once again in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final.

Aguero head-to-head

The Argentina international has been on target in each of his last four appearances versus the Gunners, and is available at 10/3 (4.33) with bet365 to extend that streak by opening the scoring at Wembley.

Having found the net in each of the previous two rounds in this competition, 8/11 (1.73) actually appears relatively solid value on him adding to his career total of seven goals against this opposition.

With Gabriel Jesus still a doubt, Raheem Sterling may be required to maintain the prolific form that has seen him score 20 goals already this campaign and there are odds of 6/5 (2.20) available on him coming up with the goods.

However, Leroy Sane’s record in this season’s competition reads three goals in three starts, making odds of 7/4 (2.75) look rather generous on him adding to his own tally of 11 in total.

Aubameyang on form

At the other end of the pitch, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is priced at 11/2 (6.50) to really announce himself to the Gunners faithful by breaking the deadlock in this final.

Having struck a debut goal against a poor Everton team in the league, the big money January signing looks like a tempting 11/8 (2.38) anytime bet to fire when it matters.

In the absence of the injured Alexandre Lacazette, Danny Welbeck is on offer at 21/10 (3.10) to take his chance by scoring just a third goal in 23 fixtures in all competitions.

Alternatively, fellow ex-Manchester United man Henrikh Mkhitaryan can be backed at 3/1 (4.00) to open his account for Arsenal at the best possible moment against his former local rivals.
