Manchester City welcomes Arsenal
The champion Manchester City welcomes Arsenal in a derby clash from the 25th round of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at this fixture at the Etihad in our vip soccer predictions for today.
After Tottenham’s win against Newcastle on Saturday, Man City fell to third place in the standings. Currently the Cityzens have 56 points and they are 5 points behind the leader Liverpool. This means that Pep Guardiola’s boys must be flawless in their performance from now. Something we did not see during the loss against Newcastle at the St. James’ Park in the previous round.
It was an unpleasant experience for City against the Magpies. Sergio Aguero opened the score for the visitors in the first minute, but after the halftime break Newcastle turned the game around with goals from Salomon Rondon and Matt Ritchie. It was a must win game for the champions, but they did another mistake.
Arsenal on the other hand are 5th in the league with 47 points, battling for a Top 4 finish and a return to the Champions League. Right now the Gunners are 3 points behind the 4th Chelsea, but they also have a game in hand. Unai Emery and his boys are aware that a win at the Etihad would level them up with Chelsea, although they will remain 5th because of goal difference.
In their last game Arsenal celebrated a 2-1 win at home against Cardiff City. All three goals in the match were scored in the second half. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette scored for the Gunners, while Nathaniel Mendez-Laing returned a goal for Cardiff in the injury time of the game.
These are our vip soccer predictions for the Premier League derby between Manchester City and Arsenal at the Etihad. Good luck!
