Manchester City v Arsenal tips

Same old story for Gunners.

The champions are warm favourites to triumph again, with bet365 offering 8/11 that Manuel Pellegrini’s side continue their title charge with victory against a Gunners side who have only won four of their eleven matches on the road this term.

Sergio Aguero is back from injury and likely to start, with City having drawn 1-1 at Everton last weekend which leaves them two points behind leaders Chelsea.

The Gunners were comfortable winners when beating Stoke 3-0 on Sunday although the team’s reliance on Alexis Sanchez was never clearer and the Chilean has reserved his best performances for the Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger must decide whether to start with Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey or Theo Walcott as Arsenal go for the jugular in this game while hoping that David Ospina can have an inspired performance between the sticks.

Paddy Power offer 15/4 about an away win for the Gunners, with Sanchez a 13/2 shot to score the first goal although all eyes will be on that man Aguero and he can be backed at 7/2 to break the deadlock.

The reverse fixture ended 2-2 and it would be no surprise to see a similar number of goals scored in this match, with a City win and both teams to score available at 21/10.
