Arsenal v Man City Football Betting Tips

K Updated

Kick Off: 16:00 PM Sunday 13th January 2013.

Arsenal will be fancying their chances of beating Manchester City on Sunday who travel with Aguero, Toure, Micah Richards and Kolarov unable to play any part in the game.

Arsenal have won three of their last four games including a 7-3 thrashing of Newcastle when Theo Walcott ran riot down the centre of the pitch but then were strangely subdued when they made the trip to Southampton. In that game Walcott hardly saw the ball at all and Arsenal were lacklustre and lucky to gain a point with an own goal gifting them the draw.

City also return three wins from their last four games but will have to make changes to their side for Sundays match with probably Dzeko making a rare start in the absence of a hamstrung Aguero.

Rather than trying to predict a result here I'm going to dip into the goals scored market with a punt on over 3.5 goals returning odds of 7/4. With so much talent on display in this game and both teams full of attacking intent you would think there will be goals aplenty in this game. George Graham must have been yearning for the days of Adam, Bould and Dixon when he watched his old team play Newcastle.

The big question everyone wants to see answered is whether Theo Walcott can keep improving his game and become a feared striker. At 23 he is the same age as when one Thierry Henry moved from the win into the centre of the pitch and we all know what happened then.

A £10 bet returns £27.50 at bet365 if this game has more than three goals.
