Arsenal vs Manchester City – Premier League : The Premier League has already kicked off
And to start off in style, we already have a derby on the 1st round. Arsenal hosts Manchester City, and the stage is the Emirates Stadium this Sunday.
It is clear that we shouldn’t take the pre-season friendlies so seriously, even if this year the International Champions Cup has stepped-up in terms of these high-quality derbies.
But it turns out that Arsenal has done well on those matches, beating teams like Chelsea, PSG and Lazio.
And themselves have also gotten off to a different start on the season, since after more than two decades,
Arsenal won’t have on the bench Arsene Wenger leading them, and Unai Emery came to replace him, with a different playstyle, a different culture, and a different manager, which might work out well.
Some changes were already visible right at this start, putting aside the 3 defenders to a line of 4, with more players in the middle.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City comes into this season to defend their title.
This time, the manager didn’t have an extraordinary budget at his disposal to setup the roster, being more cautious on the investments, even because they already have a great core, that didn’t need a lot of changes.
Mahrez has maybe been their stand-out reinforcement, and still, he should come to fill up the bench, to divide his presence between the league and the UCL.
They’ve started their season very well, that besides the friendlies, already had an official match, with the Citizens defeating Chelsea by 2-0 with goals from Aguero and winning the Community Shield.
Arsenal vs Manchester City – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Manchester City surely maintain their usual strength, coming into this season strong and already beating one of their great rivals right at the start of the season.
The big question is how Arsenal will behave this season. I think that Emery is able to give this team a touch of competitiveness.
Still, City seems to be favourite, but anyway, the goals’ line is an even better option in my opinion.
