City are looking invisible at the moment as they are on a 16-match winning streak in all competitions. Their 4-2 win away to Napoli ensured they made it into the knockout phase of the Uefa Champions League. The Citizens hold a five point lead over rivals Manchester United - who play Chelsea later on, and will certaintly consolidate their lead at the summit of the log.
In addition, Pep Guardiola’s men boast of an impressive record on their turf - winning their last 26 games at the Ethiad Stadium. Nairabe t has offered (1.45) for them to come out on top in this duel.
Both sides have met 172 times with 43 ending in stalemates and the same betting firm is putting up (5.25) for another one here.
On the other hand, the Gunners are on a five-game unbeaten run and have an edge over Man City on head to head. They will be hoping to hurt the Sky Blues unbeaten run and pick up their second win away from the Emirates Stadium in the league this season.
Nevertheless, they will have to be solid in defence in order to put the rampant City at bay, while ensuring that they are clinical in attack to stand any chance of picking valuable points at the Etihad Stadium.
This will be a daunting task for Arsene Wenger’s charges however as their away record is unconvincing having managed just three victories in seven games across all competitions. The betting company is pricing massive (6.25) for them to cause an upset here.
The Citizens have scored the curtain raiser in three of their last five meetings with their visitors and it is likely that this repeat itself as the bookmakers have priced (1.40) for that.
