The Premier League is booming with crucial matches at the top of the table amidst the beginning of the season finale. In this context, two powerhouses with multimillionaire squads will clash with the first place at stake: Manchester City receives Arsenal at the Etihad.

The Citizens come from a 1-1 tie with Liverpool at Anfield, their second draw with a Big Six club in the last five games.

The Gunners beat Brentford 2-1 in a somewhat dramatic game.


Sunday, March 31, 11:30 am ET at the Etihad Stadium

Manchester City 1.96

Where can I watch it? 


Why Bet on Manchester City?

Manchester City comes in good form, unbeaten in their last 13 league matches but having lost the lead due to the recent draws, previously mentioned above.

In this sense, their biggest weakness this season has been the big games, as except for Manchester United (against whom they achieved the double), they have been unable to win against other Big Six teams, drawing all the remaining games except a defeat against Arsenal.

They must change that now, as a title push is unsustainable without winning this type of duel. In this regard, they must rely on their remarkable offense, the third-best in the league, but with names like Erling Haaland and Kevin de Bruyne. Walker and Stones got injured in the FIFA date, so the back line will be the biggest worry in this game.

Why Bet on Arsenal?

The visitors are the leaders, Arsenal, who have been on an eight-match win streak which allowed them to take the first place. They scored 36 goals in those games, a remarkable number that helped them become the team with the highest goal differential by a good margin.

Amidst a period of instability that saw them out of the national cup competitions in December, the team woke up in such a manner that we could consider them the best team in the Premier League at the moment. In the Champions League, they had a hard-fought round of 16 against Porto but were able to get rid of the ghosts from the past and went through on penalties.

Similar to City, they also suffered casualties in the FIFA date, the most important being that of Bukayo Saka, so we’ll surely see Leandro Trossard in the starting line-up, a player that has brought problems to the Sky Blues before.

Manchester City vs. Arsenal – Final Betting Analysis:

Sunday’s appetizing affair pits the unstoppable force of Arsenal, boasting a 100% Premier League record in 2024, against the immovable object of Man City, without defeat on their patch in an astounding 16 months.

Not since January 2015 have the Gunners emerged victorious at the Etihad, and this would be the perfect timing. That, considering their form, position on the board, and matches left to play, if they want to have their name on the Premier League trophy again.

The absences of Walker and Stones should see Trossard step foot onto the Etihad turf with a lot of confidence, and the customary defeat could not be on the menu for Arsenal this weekend.

However, Manchester City has not broken the market over and over again in the last decade to worry about a couple of injuries, so we believe a 2-1 local victory to be the most likely result.

Go for a victory for the defending champions at 1.96. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $96 for a total payout of $196.
