Arsenal vs Manchester City: Predictions
Manchester City continued their fine run of form against Tottenham and Everton in the last week as they netted three goals against both sides and only conceded one goal over the course of the two games. The six points earned has seen Pep Guardiola’s side pull 10 points clear of Manchester United in second place.
In a convincing 4-2 win over Leeds, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his first-ever Premier League hat-trick as the Gabonese striker works his way back to his best following a difficult spell this season in his private life.
Despite a slow start to the 2020/21 Premier League season, Guardiola’s side has now not lost a game in their last 16 league games. City are also expected to be boosted with the possible return of Ilkay Gundogan who has now netted 11 times this season following his incredible turn of form since the New Year.
Arsenal had to travel to Portugal on Thursday for their Round of 32 clashes against Benfica. The Gunners were not able to rest key players due to the nature of their opposition as Mikel Arteta will be eyeing the Europa League as a possible chance of lifting silverware this season.

Arsenal vs Manchester City: Match Stats
The Gunners have failed to score in their last three home games against City and with a midweek trip to Portugal for their Europa League clash, it could be a long afternoon for Arteta’s men. Although Aubameyang has shown signs of getting back to his best, he faces a City side that has kept the most clean sheets (14) and conceded the fewest goals (15) this season.
City have scored at least three goals in their last four games in all competitions. Guardiola’s side made a huge statement in the race for the Premier League title earlier this month with an emphatic 4-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield which saw Phil Foden tear Jurgen Klopp’s side to pieces.
