Two of the Premier League’s unbeaten records are on the line at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
City have won three out of the last four league games against the Gunners at home and, at a price of 3/4, are odds-on favourites with Blues official betting partner Paddy Power for the contest.
However, Arsenal’s new-look front line has found an eye for goal recently. They thumped six past Southampton last week and the Gunners are 4/1 to win. It is 5/2 that the game ends all square.
The last three fixtures between the champions and Arsenal have ended 1-0 and it is 13/2 that the blues win by that score line on Sunday.
The shortest priced correct score bet for the match is 1-1 which is 6/1. If it does finish in a draw Paddy Power will generously refund all losing first goalscorer, last goalscorer, scorecasts and correct score bets on the game.
Sergio Aguero found the net against Arsenal in last year’s Carling Cup – now Capital One Cup - quarter-final and he is 4/1 to open up the scoring against Arsene Wenger’s side on Sunday.
Carlos Tevez is currently City’s top scorer in the league with three goals in four games and he is also 4/1 to score first. The Argentine is evens to find the back of the net at any time.
A David Silva goal separated the two teams at the Etihad in the league last season and the Spaniard is 6/1 to repeat the trick and score first again. Anyone who fancies Silva to score and City to win can secure an 11/4 wincast bet and Silva to score in a 1-0 win for the blues is a 25/1 scorecast bet.
The last four games between City and Arsenal have been goal-less at the half-time break and it is 11/5 to be 0-0 when the whistle goes after 45 minutes on Sunday. It is 7/2 that the teams are level at the interval with City going on to win.
