Arsenal vs Manchester CityEnglish Premier League, KO: 16:30 Feb 21, 2021, Emirates Stadium
ARSENAL are the latest team who will try and halt the Manchester City juggernaut and the hosts will be hoping Pep Guardiola keeps his promise to heavily rotate.
City's midweek win at Everton was their 17th win in a row in all competitions – a quite astonishing run that will doubtless lead them to Premier League glory this term.
But they have a crowded fixture list and that at least might offer some hope to the Gunners. City have a midweek trip upcoming to play Borussia Monchengladbach in the holy grail competition, the Champions League.
However, rotation Guardiola-style isn't encouraging either, considering John Stones, Kevin De Bruyne, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Benjamin Mendy, Ferran Torres and Sergio Aguero were all on the bench at Everton and could start on Sunday.
Arsenal have hardly had the ideal preparation after having to travel to Rome for their Europa League tie with Benfica. They impressed during their recent home win against Leeds, but still look a distance from ever being able to challenge City at the top of the league and this is a huge test.
How the bookies view it
Recent head to heads
City romped to a 4-1 win at the Emirates in the League Cup and also defeated Arsenal 1-0 at the Etihad in the league. Arsenal did beat City 2-0 in the FA Cup semi-final last season, but the Citizens have won on each of their last five visits to the North London venue with an aggregate score of 15-1.
Players to watch
Ilkay Gundogan missed the trip to Liverpool in midweek, but should start on Sunday. He's in sizzling form, although that can be said about a lot of City players just now. He has an impressive 11 goals in his last 12 Premier League starts and is begging to be backed to score anytime at 17/10 with Paddy Power.
A fit Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a huge boost for the hosts and he grabbed a hat-trick against Leeds in their last league game.
He's 9/5 with Unibet to get in the scoresheet.
Anything else catch the eye?
Man City are simply impossible to oppose at the moment and given they are too short to back alone wth most punters unless they have deep pockets, other ways to back them must be found.
They are the clean sheet kings of the Premier League with 14 out of 23 league games. They are 83/50 with Sporting Index to win to nil.
City are 11 points clear at the top of the half time league table – they've been leading in 15 of those 23 league games. So the 7/5 with 10Bet for City to be winning half time and full time is attractive too.
