In prolific form recently, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Gunners striker to take advantage of some fragility in Guardiola's defensive set-up on Sunday

While their defence has looked less than secure in recent Premier League matches, Manchester City are unlikely to have any issues going forward against Arsenal on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's men have kept just three clean sheets in 14 league games, but scored a formidable 72 goals in 19 home games in all competitions this season.

Having provided six goals in just his last five starts, Sergio Aguero looks a strong 7/2 (4.50) bet with William Hill to open the scoring in what promises to be an entertaining clash at the Etihad Stadium.

The Argentina international has been on target in seven of his last 11 matches against the Gunners in all competitions, and is a solid 8/11 (1.73) anytime bet to do so once again on current form.

Should Guardiola seek to make changes from the side that went down 2-1 at Newcastle, he also has the luxury of an in-form Gabriel Jesus to bring into the line-up.

The 21-year-old has struck eight times in just his last four starts, and can also be backed at 4/5 (1.80) to strike anytime.

After opening the season with eight goals in his first 12 league games, Raheem Sterling has only scored twice in his most recent nine, but is on offer at 10/11 (1.91) to return to form by scoring for the second time this season against Arsenal.

However, the goalmouth action is unlikely to be confined to one end of the pitch considering City's recent defensive record and the calibre of striker available to Unai Emery.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang took his tally to 25 goals in 37 matches against Cardiff on Tuesday, reaching that figure in fewer games than any player in the club's history.

With six goals to his name in the last eight fixtures, odds of 17/2 (9.50) certainly seem generous on him opening the scoring on Sunday - not to mention 2/1 (3.00) anytime odds.

Meanwhile, strike partner Alexandre Lacazette has been on the scoresheet in three of his last four league appearances, so also offers plenty of temptation at 12/5 (3.40) to score at this stadium for the second visit in succession.

Mesut Ozil returned to the starting XI for the first league game since Boxing Day, although is a 9/2 (5.50) long shot to offer a reminder of his abilities with a high profile goal at the home of the champions.
