Manchester City vs Arsenal
English Premier League, Season 2017/18
Date: Sunday, 5th November 2017
Kick-off at 15:15 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium. Manchester.
A rampant Manchester City look to stretch their winning streak when they welcome Arsenal on Sunday evening.
City extended their winning run to 15 games in all competitions with a 4-2 win against Serie A leaders Napoli on Tuesday, with the last 14 being wins. The win on the midweek book their place in the knockout round of the Champions League and the focus can be momentarily turned to the Premier League games until the end of the calender year.
Coming back to the Premier League, the Citizens have a 5-point lead over cross city rivals United, who have a massive game against Chelsea.
On the other hand, Arsenal are sixth in the standings, 9 points below their Sunday’s hosts.
The Gunners are coming on the back of a goal-less draw against Red Star Belgrade with a heavily rotated squad. They are unbeaten in the last five in all competitions and lost just once in the last 13 games.
Despite all the positives, Arsenal’s away form in the Premier League is less than impressing. They defeated Everton 5-2 in their last outing, but this came after a barren run of four games which saw 3 losses and a draw.
Manchester City vs Arsenal: Head-to-head
Arsenal had lost just 1 of their last 9 meetings with Manchester City, however the defeat came in the corresponding Premier League meeting at Etihad last season. The remaining 8 is split between 5 wins and 3 draws.
Both teams scored in the last six meetings between the sides in all competitions
Yet, Manchester City have a good record at home in Premier League games against Arsenal with the last six producing 3 wins and 2 draws, losing once.
Manchester City vs Arsenal: Predictions
City are looking unstoppable at the moment and the fluidity in their game is getting better with each game. On the other hand, Arsenal keep stuttering in road games and this could be another tough test for the team from London. It was not long ago that the Gunners got humiliated by another attacking oriented side Liverpool by a 4-0 margin. This must go down as a comfortable win for the men in sky blue.
