Manchester City host Arsenal in the Premier League on Wednesday evening, with the Citizens hoping to move two points behind the league leaders by beating them at the Etihad Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s side are on a six-match winning streak in England’s top flight, while the Gunners’ previously relentless title charge has clearly stuttered in recent weeks after drawing three successive matches.
Crucially, Man City have two games in hand on Arsenal, so a defeat for Mikel Arteta’s side would potentially be fatal in terms of their hopes of reclaiming the Premier League trophy for the first time in 19 years.
Having conceded eight goals in their last three matches, contributing to them dropping six points in total, it is certainly not the best timing for Arsenal to be heading to the Premier League’s most potent attack.
Indeed, Erling Braut Haaland will break Mohamed Salah’s record for most amount of goals scored in a 38-game PL season should the Norway forward find the back of the net on Wednesday, and it would take a brave man to back against him on current form.
Haaland is unsurprisingly odds-on to score anytime against the Gunners at 1.56, while you can back the 22-year-old to open the scoring at odds of 3.10.
Man City’s defence hasn’t exactly been water-tight in recent times, either, with Guardiola’s men conceding in eight of their last 10 league games, including at the Emirates Stadium in February.
That was one of six recent victories for Man City where their opponents have also scored, so we think Man City to win & Both Teams To Score (1/GG) represents great value at odds of 2.95.
These two title challengers have scored 153 league goals in 62 matches combined this season, with Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard all in double figures for the visitors, so it seems unthinkable that we won’t see at least a few goals fly in on Wednesday.
