Arsenal vs Manchester City
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 21 February 2021
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s men are continuing their mesmerizing run towards the title, and it seems nothing could stop them at this point. They are at the top of the table with a seven-point lead, and have a game in hand as well.
They have also scored the second-most number of goals so far in the tournament, and have conceded the least so far. In fact, they have let in 14 goals till now, and the second-best record belongs to Chelsea and Aston Villa with 24 goals each.
Moreover, the Citizens are also on a long winning run, and they are desperate to emulate what Bayern had done the last season. And it seems the right time to do it as well, with most of the titans of world football currently experiencing some major troubles.
Meanwhile, the Gunners are devoid of all their glory. They no longer resemble the once proud team in the English top flight. As of now, they would consider their season a victory, if they manage to qualify for the Europa Conference League.
In addition, they also have a worrying h2h record against this foe over the years.
By the looks of things, expect Manchester City to add another win to their record-breaking streak.
Arsenal vs Manchester City: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash had ended in a 1-4 win for Pep’s men.
- They had won nine of the preceding ten meetings.
- They had scored three of more goals in seven of the former ten clashes.
- The visitors had won five of the last six encounters at this stadium, and had scored two or more goals in ten of the past fifteen match-ups at this ground.
Arsenal vs Manchester City Prediction
Mikel Arteta’s men won 4-2 at home the last match-day, against Leeds. In the meantime, the Citizens won 3-0 at home the past game week, against Tottenham.
Going on, Pep’s men are on an unbelievable 16-game winning run, and they are unbeaten in their former 23 fixtures. They also have won nine of their past ten h2h clashes against this foe.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in six of their preceding nine overall games, and they have a total of just three league wins at this stadium since the first week of October.
Likely, expect Manchester City to deliver a winning performance this Sunday, and that too in style.
