Sunday sees City clash for a third time this season with the Gunners and so far it has definitely been advantage the Blues via a pair of 1-0 wins.
The first game, a Carling Cup clash in London in November, was decided by a late Sergio Aguero strike. The Argentine, who has missed the last couple of games, is 11/2 to score last in this game with our betting partner Paddy Power.
The Premier League fixture at the Etihad Stadium in December was settled by David Silva’s 54th minute effort. The Spanish midfielder is 10/1 to score first in this game and 10/3 to score anytime.
Mario Balotelli brought his league tally up to 13 goals in 21 games with his brace in the draw with Sunderland on Saturday. The Italian is 6/1 to score first and 9/5 to score anytime in this game.
City to win this third match-up by the same 1-0 is 17/2. Being away from home the Blues do not start as favourites and are priced up at a tasty 9/5 to win. A third clean-sheet of the season against Arsenal is available at 11/4.
Given the importance of this game and the attacking quality in both sides Paddy Power believe it may prove to be a more open and attacking affair than the previous two matches. If you think they are correct then you can back there to be more than 2.5 goals at 8/11, more than 3.5 goals at 15/8 or more than 4.5 goals at 9/2.
