Arsenal and Manchester City meet again just four days after the League Cup final, the two sides clash at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Thursday. Sunday's match at Wembley was won easily by Manchester City as Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva scored to give manager Pep Guardiola his first trophy with the Citizens. Manchester City have also won the reverse league fixture in November, it ended 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium with goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.
Arsenal's season looks more and more like a failed one, the Gunners have lost the chance to win the League Cup last weekend and now they have two objectives left: win the Europa League and finish inside the Premier League top four. The first of those two objectives is still reachable, at least in theory, but the second looks more like an illusion. The Gunners are in sixth place at the moment and fourth-placed Tottenham are ten points ahead, not an easy gap to bridge with 10 matches left in the season. Santi Cazorla and Alexandre Lacazette remain injured, while Nacho Monreal might also miss out after having picked up a knock in Sunday's match.
Manchester City are having a great season, they have won the League Cup last weekend and they are all but certain of winning the Premier League as well. They are currently 13 points ahead of second-placed Manchester City in the Premier League table, even if they lose at Arsenal they will still hold a comfortable cushion with ten games left in the season. Benjamin Mendy, Fernandinho and Raheem Sterling are expected to miss out through injury, while other players might be rotated by manager Pep Guardiola.
Arsenal: Cech - Bellerin, Koscielny, Mustafi, Kolasinac - Ramsey, Elneny, Wilshere - Mkhitaryan, Ozil - Aubameyang
Man City: Ederson - Walker, Stones, Laporte, Delph - De Bruyne, Gundogan, D. Silva - B.Silva, Aguero, Sane
My prediction: Manchester City to win 3-1.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
