Arsenal FC – Manchester City FC betting tip & odds comparison 15.02.2023

An epic clash awaits at the Emirates on Wednesday evening as league leaders welcome defending champions Manchester City in a clash that could have major ramifications in the title race.

The Gunners are looking to keep the visitors at arms rest while the Citizens will be looking to dispatch the leaders from the top of the perch if they can come out of the capital with all three points up for grabs.

This long-anticipated clash is as intriguing as they come and difficult to call either way. We will explore our Premier League predictions for this clash from Frapapa and Cyberbet

ARSENAL

Having looked invisible with back-to-back wins over Manchester United and Tottenham, Arsenal have seemingly slipped against what you could regard as weaker opposition with a 1-0 loss to Everton followed by a 1-1 draw at home to Brentford last weekend allowing the chasing pack to close in on them. The draw was not without controversy with the Gunners finding themselves on the wrong end of a VAR error that failed to pick offside against the visitors in the build-up to their equalizer.

Having said that, they still remained top of the log but their once seemingly unassailable eight-point cushion now trimmed to just three points. Their unbeaten record at home will also be severely tested here with City being one of their kryptonite in recent seasons. They have actually failed to win their last 13 league games against them and lost their last 10 straight games – their longest losing record against an EPL opponent.

A win here will be a major boost for their chances to win their first title in close to two decades but they will need to dig deep to pull it out.

MANCHESTER CITY

Despite off-the-pitch issues regarding investigations into multiple breaches of the financial rules, Man City looked to be back to their best as they steamrolled Aston Villa 3-1 at the Etihad on Sunday thanks to goals from Rodri, Gundogan, and Mahrez.

That was the perfect response Guardiola could have asked following their disappointing 1-0 loss to Tottenham the week before. He will look to build on that performance here as they come face to face with the biggest threat to their quest to defend their title.

The Citizens have had a lot of success on their travels to North London, winning the last six straight times across all competitions. Their impressive record and the chance to dislodge Arsenal from the top slot with a win will certainly be their main motivations coming into this match

ARSENAL VS MAN CITY PREDICTIONS

With neither side willing to lose this game given the title race undertones, we can expect a close encounter here particularly to start the game. We feel chances in the opening half will be quite limited either way. As such we are picking Under 1.5 First Half Goals @ 1.36 with Frapapa as the first of our today’s betting tips.

City have had considerable success on these grounds and that will give them lots of confidence coming into this match. The prospect of moving to the top of the log, albeit with a game in hand is also a huge motivation for them. We expect them to go into attack mode from the get-go and we feel all the early running could result in them breaking the deadlock in what we expect will be a tight encounter. Cyberbet App have priced City Scoring opening goal @ 1.96 and we feel this is great value to pick for our final shout here.
