Arsenal v Man City Odds : Punters pile into Dzeko as Manchester look value at Emirates

Published

on

The Sunday action continues as free Bet365 bets release the latest Arsenal v Man City odds, Man Utd v Liverpool and announce a new free bets offer for punters to spend on any game.

The Super Sunday fixture in the Premier League this weekend sees Arsenal host Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium in what should be a scintillating encounter between two very good attacking sides.

The pressure will be on both teams to claim a victory here as Arsenal need to keep the pace with the top four, whereas City could be a massive ten points behind Manchester United come kick-off.

Its a ‘Super Sunday’ of Premiership football, as Bet365 celebrate with a new free bets offer worth £200/€200 to customers to spend on any game! They’ll also refund certain bets if the Man Utd v Liverpool or Arsenal v Man City game finishes in a draw! Claim here!

The Gunners are six points adrift of a Champions League spot right now and know that could be nine by the time this match gets underway. Fans might be a bit disappointed that they are only going for a top four finish again this season, but that is the reality and it is not going to be easy to achieve.

Arsene Wenger’s men have drawn their last two encounters in the Premier League and FA Cup, so need to raise their game on Sunday afternoon. As we know, when at their best, the North London outfit can be tough for anyone to live with and there will be plenty of punters taking the 13/8 on the home win.

Theo Walcott might be given a chance to play as a forward once more and it is in these big matches, against top quality defences, where he has to show that he is capable of leading the line. The England international can be backed at 6/1 to find the net first which could attract attention from Gunners fans.

Santi Cazorla is another big player for Arsenal and he could hold the key to their success this weekend. If these two can link-up well together, then the hosts do have a chance. The Spaniard can be backed at 9/1 to find the net first.

As for Manchester City, they need to keep on winning matches and hope that United slip-up along the way. They of course chased down a similar deficit last season, so should have the confidence that they can do it, but three points might be needed here.

Their price of 9/5 for the away win with Bet365 looks to be a touch of value however.

Roberto Mancini’s men have started to play some excellent football in recent weeks as well, especially at Norwich City and then on home soil to Stoke City in the Premier League.

If they can get at Arsenal’s shaky defence early on, then the Citizens have a great chance of a win.

Sergio Aguero will miss the trip after failing to recover from his hamstring injury, which leaves Edin Dzeko and Carlos Tevez to pair up-front in and they could be given the chance again at the Emirates on Sunday.

They seem to suit playing together and both have been clinical in the last few matches, with Dzeko available at 6/1 to find the net first while his Argentinian striker partner can be backed at 5/1.

Yaya Toure is unavailable though due to his Africa Cup of Nations commitments and make no doubt about it, that is a huge blow for City as he is one of their best players. Now, someone like Gareth Barry has the task of dominating the middle of the park, which will not be easy.

We are all set for a Super Sunday fixture that lives up to the billing this weekend. Both sides have the ability to come out on top here and games at the Emirates Stadium have all but guaranteed goals this season.

The action all gets underway from 4PM on Sunday afternoon and it should be a fitting way to round-off another fantastic weekend of Premier League action.
