The hosts, Manchester City, lost their first game of the new season to Tottenham Hotspur by a single goal.In the second round, the team picked up their form with a 5-0 win over Norwich thanks to a superb performance from Jesus and the gradual integration of Alexis Gralish into the team.
Despite the loss of central player Kevin De Bruyne to injury, both striker Jesus and midfielder Gündogan have been playing very well in the league.City’s midfield is still one of the world’s top midfield setups.
If City’s midfield can perform at its best against Arsenal at home, the chances of winning are high. The team has plenty of substitutes, but the forward line will need some time to improve the integration between the players as Gralish has just joined the team. This is a crucial game for the home side, and the team is bound to give it their best shot.
The visitors, Arsenal, have seen their form slip considerably in recent years, with their first two games in the new league season being rather underwhelming. They have lost their last home game to Chelsea and are now on a two-game losing streak. The team has not scored a single goal in the two games, showing that the overall strength of the team has really dropped.
The team’s overall performance is now very drawn out. The lack of link-ups and poor playmaking ability in the forward line, coupled with their rather mediocre backline and not very active midfield, are all things that Arsenal need to address as soon as possible.
Arsenal’s confidence has already been undermined, and the fact that they will be away from home to a strong Manchester City team will certainly add to their frustration.
Manchester City finished 1st in the league last season, while Arsenal finished 8th in the league. City’s form has been more consistent in recent seasons, consistently staying in the title race.
Arsenal’s results have fluctuated in recent years and are now out of the race for 4th.
The two teams met 4 times last season, with City winning 3 and losing 1, with the loss coming in the FA Cup, and winning both the league and cup matches. However, in the 2 league matches, both resulted in a narrow 1 goal win.
Although Arsenal have more injured players in this game, Aubameyang and Lacazette are back and new midfielder Erdogan is also available to play, which is a great addition to the team.
The core of Manchester City’s midfield, De Bruyne, is out due to injury, plus Arsenal boss Arteta was previously an assistant coach to City boss Pep Guardiola. Arsenal only lost by more than one goal on one of the four occasions the two teams met in all competitions last season. To sum up, this game is optimistic that Arsenal will lose by 1 goal at most on the road.
