Arsenal vs Manchester City 21.02.2021

This is without a doubt the pick of this weekend’s Premier League action and it will certainly have massive ramifications for either team’s respective ambitions for this season. Man City are playing unbelievable football right now. They have pummelled everyone on their path and are seemingly running away with the title at the moment. A 3-1 win at Everton in their rescheduled midweek fixture extended their winning record to 17 straight games which is just incredible! More importantly, it extended their cushion at the top to 10 points and they will certainly try to create even more separation. 

Arsenal have blown hot and cold this season which is why they are 10th on the table. They beat Leeds 4-2 at the Emirates in a thrilling back and forth game last time out. Arteta will however not have been pleased with how they closed out the game. They led 4-0 after Aubameyang’s goal 2 minutes into the 2nd half completed his hat-trick but they took their foot off the pedal and were on the back foot for the remainder of the match allowing Leeds to pull two back before ultimately seeing the game off. 

The Gunners cannot approach this game with the cavalier attitude they showed in the 2nd half of their win over Leeds. There is no love lost between these two teams and given how crucial this game is for both of them, the potential for an overly physical and aggressive game exists and we are therefore backing Over 4.5 bookings to land here
