Football Betting Tips: Arsenal vs Manchester City
Manchester City travel to Arsenal as they look to bounce back from their Derby Day defeat to Manchester United. Arsenal picked up their first win under the stewardship of Freddie Ljungberg last time out at West Ham and whilst the Gunners will be hoping to push for a top 4 finish this season, they clearly need to rebuild quickly before the Christmas fixture chaos hits as they currently sit 9th. City meanwhile sit 14 points off the pace in the Premier League and despite not having much luck with injuries of VAR decisions, have looked off the pace at times this term. Their defeat to Manchester United on Saturday was testament to that but they got back to winning ways over Dinamo Zagreb in midweek.

Sunday 15th December
Match Winner Odds:
It has been a tough couple of months for Arsenal who have dropped down to 9th in the Premier League table – a run of results that saw the board decide to sack Unai Emery. Freddie Ljungberg has been placed in temporary charge of the Gunners and they picked up their first win in 10 games in all competitions with a big win at West Ham last time out. The Gunners will be targeting top 4 football if possible this season and despite their poor run of form, they are only 7 points behind 4th place Chelsea and they have plenty of time to bridge the gap. Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang has led the line superbly for Arsenal this season, scoring 11 goals and he will be integral to their hopes here.
Manchester City have struggled this season by their own impeccably high standards and they currently find themselves 3rd in the Premier League table. They are 14 points behind leaders Liverpool and whilst bridging the gap and claiming a 3rd title in a row looks unlikely, they still have 3 other competitions to fight for this term. They slipped to a disappointing Derby Day defeat to Manchester United last time out and they will be all too aware of the magnitude of this game with the busy Christmas season on the horizon. Gabriel Jesus netted a hat-trick in midweek and he will be hoping to add to his tally of 5 Premier league goals for the season here.
