Manchester City is ready to rise
Traditionally, Manchester City started the new season of the Premier League with a negative result. 0-1 loss to Tottenham.
The interesting thing about them is that after a bad start they make a very long winning streak.
Now there are all the prerequisites for this trend to continue. Which, in fact, has already started with a 5-0 victory over Norwich.
Arsenal started the season tragically
Man City now has a convenient historical rival. Which is also in its usual unconvincing state.
There are a total of 10 victories for the Citizens in the last 11 matches against Arsenal in all tournaments. And at this stadium are 5 out of 5.
At the start of the new season in the Premier League, Arsenal lost two games. In which they did not score a single goal, but allowed 4.
And on top of that, they were London derbies - against Brentford and Chelsea.
Prediction for Man City - Arsenal
We can continue to turn this game around from all sides. And arguments in favor of Manchester City should be dropped from everywhere.
OK. However, are the Citizens playing against Norwich again today?
Is that why the odds for a home win are so miserable?
Well, even stranger, but here it is expected to be devastating.
I agree that student Mikel Arteta will lose to teacher Josep Guardiola.
I have no argument in favor of Arteta. But will Pep be ruthless?
At the moment, Arsenal is no longer such a strong irritant.
And if you've heard the phrase "routine win", it never includes anything with more than 3 goals.
This is my choice for football prediction for this match.
