On the 19th of december Arsenal will welcome Manchester City over at the Emirates Stadium for a top clash meeting in the premier league. Arsenal is coming of a miracle save of their champions league spot and an amazing recovery of their slow start in the league.
The gunners are looking really strong this year with Giroud and Sanchez having some really strong performances. On the first glance this looks like a hard game to predict but dont worry the viking will cover the complete fixture for you in this preview, so that you know on what to place your bets and where.
Manchester City on the other hand has also managed to qualify for the 1/8 finals of the champions league aswell as staying in the top 5 of the table since the start of this year´s premier league season.
Arsenal will be coming into this game with 4 victories and 1 draw total record (away+home) aswell as 4 victories and 1 draw at home. The gunners managed to beat the german powerhouse team Bayern Munich with 2:0 and secured their spot in the champions league 1/8 with a 3-0 away victory over Olympiakos in those game. The gunners managed a team average of over 2.5 goals in 3/2 of their games in total and 2/3 in their home games; in average their game goes to over 2.5 goals in 3/2 of their combined 10 total/home games. The gunners are currently without Alexis Sanchez but the Chilean has himself requested a callback for this game and Arsene Wenger is saying that things are looking bright for him recovering from his hamstring injury in time, furthermore Wenger has stated that the XI that started versus Aston Villa is likely to start versus Manchester City aswell (if Sanchez is going to play then it´s likely after a halftime substitution).
Manchester City will be coming into this game with 4 victories and 1 defeat in total aswell as 1 victory, 2 defeats and 2 draws in their 5 latest away games. Manchester City only managed to find the net in 1 out of those 5 away games and that was in their lone victory which was a 3-1 victory against Sevilla. City’s main-man Sergio Agüero will be playing in the clash but Manuel Pelligrini has confirmed that Vincent Kompany will be out and as such Manchester City will be having a harder time defending and we should expect an attack heavy strategy from the gunners.

Looking over the stats and injuries this looks like a one-sided victory for Arsenal to claim the first spot in the premier league. Arsenal have every advantage there is to have coming into this game, they probably even have a better moral in the team following their 1/8 qualification in the Champions league.
The viking’s prediction is that Arsenal will win this fixture and that the game ends in over 2.5 goals, the carefull gambler will be looking at the tweets and the news at the day of the game to see if Alexis Sanchez will be confirmed for the game or not. Even if Sanchez is out the gunners should have quite a big edge in this one but you might want to look for the “Draw no bet Arsenal” pick instead.
Another interesting pick for this game is the over 2.5 goals pick as Arsenal on their own have a team average of 2.5 goals in 3/2 of their latest 5 home games, Vincent Kompany being injured makes this pick even better as Arsenal’s strong attackers will be all over City. The stats from Manchester City’s latest away games also show another strong pick for this game; Away team total under 1.5 goals. Manchester City only managed to score in 1 of their latest 5 away games but be carefull with this pick as Manchester City do have a strong offence.
Arsenal – Manchester City, 3-1 @ 14.00
