THE last thing Arsenal need is another meeting with Man City after Sunday's soul-crushing League Cup Final defeat.
But that's what they've got tonight and they should at least put up a better fight on home turf them they did in the one-sided Wembley showpiece.
It was a skoosh for City as they ran out 3-0 winners on Sunday and six of the last seven head-to-heads have seen at least 2.5 goals.
Go for same again tonight with six of the Gunners' last seven home league outings also going over 2.5 and only one of City's last six away not landing the bet.
Both teams to score
Arsenal have scored in 27 consecutive home games in the league – a run stretching back to October 2016 – and can hit the target tonight.
Keeping them out at the other end will be a tall order with the likes of Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne on the loose and City are unlikley to draw a blank for just the second time this season on league duty.
City were miles ahed in the cup final win and can shake off the post-celebration hangover to avoid defeat tonight.
Arsenal will be determied to make amends for their awful performance on Sunday but they look a listless lot under Arsene Wenger, who'll surely be axed in summer.
City don't have a great record at the Emirates – no wins in the past five visits – but can bag a point at worst.
League leaders City also top the table when it comes to corners. They're averaging 7.56 a game this season while away from home it's a healthy 7.54.
Arsenal are averaging 7.23 corners at home so both sides should contribute tonight to the over 10 total corners market.
