Manchester City face a trip to the Emirates on Sunday as they take on Arsenal in a huge clash in the race for the Premier League title.
Man City lost their first league game of the campaign last week but remain top of the table by a point and at 7/5 with bet365, they are favourites for Sunday’s matchup.
History favours Manchester City
2022/23 saw Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal emerge as the latest challenger to Manchester City’s dominance over the English game.
Arsenal spent much of the season top of the table before eventually losing out on the title following a drop in form in April. Despite pushing Manchester City so close in the title race last term, Arsenal have a torrid record when going head-to-head with the Sky Blues.
- Since taking charge of Manchester City in 2016, Pep Guardiola has never lost a Premier League game to the Gunners (W13 ,D1)
- Mikel Arteta has lost eight of his 10 matches when facing Pep as Arsenal boss, with the two wins coming in the FA Cup final of 2020 and in the Community Shield earlier this year (Arsenal won via penalties).
- Manchester City have not lost back-to-back Premier League games since December 2018 (vs Crystal Palace and Leicester City).
- Arsenal’s home record remains poor, with their two draws in the league this season coming at the Emirates
Erling Haaland has also impressed when facing Arsenal, scoring two and assisting two in four games so far. Back Haaland to score anytime vs the Gunners at 11/10 with bet365.
