Arsenal 14/1 (15.00) to beat Manchester City

Last 19/10 (2.90) to beat Manchester City, Arsenal are now at 14/1 (15.00) to see off their rivals and keep in the race to qualify for the Champions League next season. In the Gunners’ favour is the fact they have gone unbeaten in 18 of their last 19 home games against their rivals.

Arsenal certainly have the firepower to get the job done at the Emirates Stadium as Alexis Sanchez leads their charge against Pep Guardiola’s men. Assisting him certainly could be Theo Walcott, with City one of his favourite opponents. The England winger is out to get back on the goalscoring path and City certainly could be a ripe opportunity for him to find the back of the net and make it the fifth straight game he has netted against the Etihad Stadium outfit.

Sunday marks the 1209th day that Arsenal have found themselves behind their Manchester rivals in the Premier League since the start of the 2011-12 season. But with everything to prove in front of their own fans, the Gunners, with their penchant of scoring late goals ensuring no cause is lost till the final whistle, will not be short of motivation and certainly aren’t lacking in quality themselves - making odds of 14/1 (15.00) the most worthwhile way of backing Arsene Wenger’s embattled side for new Betfair customers.

Manchester City 12/1 (13.00) to beat Arsenal

Available at shorter odds of 11/8 (2.38), Manchester City have now been upped to a hefty 12/1 (13.00) to see off Arsenal for new Betfair customers. The visitors will be aware how big a step a win would be on their road to Champions League qualification at the end of the campaign, with their European ambitions helped no end by snatching victory from a direct rival in this six pointer.

Not without his critics in his first season managing in the Premier League, Guardiola is aware anything less than reaching Europe’s elite club competition will be considered failure. The Catalan certainly appears to have the handle on his opposite number Wenger and will look to go his seventh game unbeaten out of 10 encounters with the Frenchman in London.

Aguero, too out to prove a point following his struggles, can count on an imperious record of 37 goals in 53 appearances versus teams from the capital, providing City the firepower they need to seal a valuable win. The fourth-place side can be counted on to punish any nerves from their Arsenal, making the 12/1 (13.00) for new Betfair players a great opportunity to profit backing the visitors.
