Sky Sports 1 serves up “Super Sunday” for punters this weekend, with Liverpool playing host to arch rivals Man United and high-flying Arsenal taking on title holders Man City at the Etihad.
After the early kickoff in Liverpool, at 4pm the cameras switch their attention to Manchester where title holders City are 1.8 favourites with Paddy Power to beat an in-form Arsenal side.
The Gunners are shots with Boylesports, with the draw priced up at 3.8 with the same firm, and I think this is going to be a much closer affair than the odds imply.
City’s record since the start of last season reads 21 home games, 20 wins and a draw, but they have not looked as invincible this season and struggled to beat Southampton 3-2.
They also come into the game on the back of a 3-2 Champions league defeat at the hands of Real Madrid where their defensive frailties were once again clear for all to see.
Arsenal, on the other hand, have looked rock solid at the back this season and have let in only one goal so far. They have also started to look more deadly in front of goal, thrashing Southampton 6-1 before putting in a solid performance to beat Montepellier 2-1 in France on Tuesday.
I think they are more than capable of coming away with at least a point in this, and that makes the 3.5 available with bet365in their Draw/No Bet market about Arsene Wenger’s men look worth wager.
Lukas Poldoski has been a terrific signing for the Gunners and is going to be a real handful for the City defence. I like the look of the 9 on offer with bet365 and Boylesports for him to score first.
Boylesports also offer 3.5 about the German getting on the scoresheet during the 90 minutes and that makes plenty of appeal.
