Arsenal and Manchester City will meet in the 25th round of the Premier League. Arsenal beat Leeds United at home, but the 10th place is not something that Mikel Arteta can boast about. The team needs a cold shower for better results in the continuation, otherwise, they will be in big trouble. Manchester City do not spare opponents this season, Pep Guardiola has found a recipe for victories, and he can be proud of his players.

Reason for Arsenal vs Manchester City Predictions
Arsenal is in 10th place and 22 points behind their opponents. The Gunners are still battling hard to qualify for Europe next season but are eight points behind fifth place. Sixth or perhaps seventh might be good enough if top teams win the two domestic cups. Arsenal, of course, could yet end up in the Champions League if winning the Europa League. They had been making a good recovery but go into this match having won only one of their last four league games with two losses. One good bit of news for them is the return to form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has five goals in his last three home league games. Ainsley Maitland-Niles shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Nicolas Pepe showed why he was brought in, he has good dribbling, and speed is his advantage. The French international is the starter in every game, and last season he scored several important goals.
Can he get past the Manchester City defense, though? They have only conceded two goals in their last nine league games, and one of those was a penalty. It’s all part of City’s fantastic form that has seen them win their previous 17 games in all competitions, including 12 in the Premier League. All of which has taken them ten points clear and on their way to another Premier League title. It’s anyone’s guess what they might be able to achieve when De Bruyne and Aguero return to first-team action. City has won their last six away league games, scoring 17 goals in the previous five. The reverse fixture saw them win 1-0 at home. They haven’t lost to Arsenal in the Premier League since 2015, and another win is on its way this weekend. Phil Foden shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Raheem Sterling is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
Manchester City is playing in fantastic form, the winning streak is expected to continue, and they want to remain in the top spot.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
