Premier League 2016-17: Arsenal vs Manchester City – Preview and betting predictions
Venue: Emirates Stadium
Date: Sunday, April 2
Arsenal take on Manchester City in undoubtedly the biggest match this weekend.
Arsenal will have to manage without their goalkeeper Petr Cech (calf), forward Lucas Perez (thigh) and midfielder Santi Cazorla (Achilles). Boss Arsene Wenger also revealed that Mesut Ozil is nearing full fitness and is likely to start.
The Gunners have been defeated just once in their 19 previous home Premier League matches against Manchester City (W11 D6).
Pep Guardiola’s side is looking to complete the double over Arsenal for the first time.
Arsenal (8) and Man City (7) have found the back of the net through substitutes on more occasions than of all PL sides this term.
The last seven Premier League duels between these two teams have produced 27 goals, an average of 3.86 per match.
"They go for it; we go for it. It should be a promising game,” said Wenger ahead of the high-profile contest.
The north Londoners have lost four and won one of their last five games in the league. City have won 3 and drawn 2 of their last five.
