When Unai Emery was offered the Arsenal job, he would’ve loved nothing better than a nice easy start to life in the Premier League. Instead, he’s been dealt the Premier League champions. Manchester City are showing no signs of slowing up after their 100 point title triumph last season – as shown in their brushing aside of Chelsea in the community shield – and look likely to retain the Premier League for the first time in a decade.

Arsenal v Man City Betting Tips & Preview

Unai Emery faces a ritual of fire.

When Unai Emery was offered the Arsenal job, he would’ve loved nothing better than a nice easy start to life in the Premier League. Instead, he’s been dealt the Premier League champions. Manchester City are showing no signs of slowing up after their 100 point title triumph last season – as shown in their brushing aside of Chelsea in the community shield – and look likely to retain the Premier League for the first time in a decade.

I simply cannot see anything other than a Man City win. Arsenal’s new era will take time to develop and grow, whereas City are already a well-oiled machine, deadly going forward and now solid at the back. Even Guardiola took one season to truly adapt to his new surroundings, and Emery is unlikely to turn up trees immediately.

Manchester United’s issues since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure show the pitfalls of a long-serving manager leaving, though there is significantly less pressure on Emery than David Moyes due to a lack of recent success at The Emirates.

This should be a fascinating game to watch, but Guardiola’s men should simply have too much for Arsenal. It’s shaping up to be a comfortable win for City, who will be in a ruthless mood.

 

We know this already, but Manchester City have so many goals in them. Their destructive capability is pretty mind-blowing – their 106 goals last season is a Premier League record – and the addition of Riyad Mahrez simply increases their plethora of options.

Bernd Leno, Sokratis, Lucas Torreira and Stephan Lichtsteiner are all defensively-minded players who have been brought in to strengthen areas of weakness for The Gunners. However they have not played competitively together, while City’s players are drilled to an inch of their lives in regards to the intricacies of Guardiola’s system, as shown with their goalscoring record last year.

City will be relentless on Sunday. I am backing them to win both halves at a very good price.

Plenty is made of City’s attack, and rightly so, but one thing they have immeasurably improved is their defence. In Guardiola’s first season it was a shambles at times, not helped by Claudio Bravo, which ultimately cost them any realistic shot at the title.

The signing of Ederson, Vincent Kompany’s fitness and a more settled team all contributed to a far more solid Manchester City last time around, who conceded just 27 goals in the league, the lowest of all the teams.

Arsenal do have plenty of firepower themselves – particularly Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang – but if you back City to hold firm and win 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0, you’ll be handsomely rewarded.
