Manchester City vs. Arsenal: Preview


Defending champions Manchester City are coming into the game on the back of a convincing 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the FA Cup Quarter-finals on March 16. In their previous Premier League encounter, however, City played out a 1-1 draw with fellow title aspirants Liverpool at Anfield.

Arsenal, on the other hand, did not have FA Cup commitments to fulfill. Their final game before the international break came against FC Porto in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16. They won 2-1 in the second leg at the Emirates Stadium, but it was not enough to seal a clean passage through to the Quarter-finals. Arteta’s team ultimately bested the Portuguese outfit on penalties. The north London club emerged victorious in their previous Premier League game as well. They beat Brentford 2-1 away from home on March 9.


Manchester City had a troubling international break, with many of their star players suffering knocks and overloads. Kyle Walker and John Stones both pulled their leg muscles and are doubtful for the game. Manuel Akanji and Ederson too picked up knocks and are racing against time to prove their fitness.

Creator-in-chief Kevin De Bruyne also suffered a groin injury, but he should be fit for Sunday’s game.

Arsenal, meanwhile, fared a little better during the international break. Bukayo Saka did suffer a thigh injury but he should be back in time for the trip to Manchester.


The two Premier League heavyweights have met each other 210 times in all competitions over the years. Arsenal have won 100, City 65, and the remaining 45 have ended all square. Arteta’s side had the last laugh when the two teams met at the Emirates Stadium in October 2023. Owing to Gabriel Martinelli’s 86th-minute strike, the Londoners secured a 1-0 win over the Mancunians.

Manchester City vs. Arsenal: Prediction

Third-placed Manchester City and Premier League leaders Arsenal are two formidable teams, capable of beating any outfit on their day. However, at the Etihad Stadium, it is difficult not to side with the Cityzens.

The Treble holders are nearly unstoppable at home and have an excellent record against the Londoners, not losing to them since the 2-0 defeat on January 18, 2015. So, if they can hold their ground and get an early goal, it could be difficult for the visitors to find a way back.

We predict a 2-1 win for Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.
