Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola described the 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield two weeks ago – three days after going out of the Champions League – as “one of the most special days of my life” and the Spaniard will clearly be in buoyant mood for the visit to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, on the other hand, is contemplating his future at the club after the Gunners suffered their fourth defeat in five Premier League matches against West Brom at the Hawthorns. His side went into the international break five points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, albeit with a game in hand, and the pressure on the beleaguered Frenchman is increasing.
In fairness, the Gunners have lost just one of their last eight home matches and scored in all but one of the 13 matches they’ve played at the Emirates Stadium this season. Nevertheless, the Sky Blues have accumulated more points away from the Etihad Stadium than at home this season, so let’s try both teams to score and Manchester City to win at 3/1 with bet365, William Hill or Paddy Power.
Selection: Both teams to score and Manchester City to win (3/1 with bet365, William Hill and Paddy Power)
