Our tipster expects the hosts to claim the spoils in a high-scoring clash when Pep Guardiola's men welcome Arsene Wenger's Gunners to Manchester

Manchester City can continue their superb start to the season with victory against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola's men maintained their five-point lead at the top of the table last Saturday with a thrilling 3-2 victory against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns, which was it City's eighth successive Premier League victory and dabblebet offer 4/9 (1.44) that the leaders make it nine in a row against the Gunners.

Arsenal thumped Everton 5-2 at Goodison Park in their most recent match away from home, but that is the only Premier League win that the Gunners have recorded on their travels so far this season; indeed, they have lost three of their other four top flight fixtures on the road.

The north Londoners can be backed at 6/1 (7.0) with dabblebet to see off City, while the same firm go 4/1 (5.0) that the Gunners claim a share of the spoils on their visit to Manchester.

Arsenal did defy their detractors to claim a creditable goalless draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge back in September and Wenger's men will need a similarly steely defensive display here if they are to stop City, for Guardiola's men have found the net in all but one of their 16 matches in all competitions thus far this term.

Furthermore, City have scored at least three goals in six of their last seven Premier League matches and dabblebet go 19/20 (1.95) that the men from Manchester manage more than two goals against the Gunners, while the 10/11 (1.91) quote on offer from the same firm for Guardiola's men to win by, at least, two clear goals appears to offer decent value.

Although Wenger's charges fired five past Everton on Merseyside, Arsenal have failed to find the net in three of their five Premier League matches away from home so far this season and dabblebet offer 8/5 (2.60) that the visitors draw a blank here; that particular play could well prove popular, for City have kept a clean sheet in four of their last six matches in domestic competition.

It is worth noting, though, that there have been goals at both ends in each of the last five meetings between these teams, while there have been more than two goals scored at the end of 90 minutes in seven of the last 10 renewals; dabblebet go 1/2 (1.50) that both sides are on target, while the same firm offer 4/11 (1.36) that there are at least three goals in the game.

Better value, however, could lie in backing Guardiola's men to march on by picking up all three points from a goal-laden game as City's last seven league wins have produced an astonishing 34 goals, with 20 goals for and two against in their last four home matches in this competition.

With that in mind, dabblebet's 8/11 (1.73) quote for Manchester City to win a match that produces at least three goals could well offer punters a path to profit ahead of Sunday's showdown.
