Manchester City vs. Arsenal Prediction on March 31, 2024

Match info

The English men’s football 2023–24 Premier League match between Manchester City Football Club and The Arsenal Football Club will take place on Sunday, March 31, at 4:30 PM local time as the third-placed defending champions try to close the gap with the league leaders. Given that second-placed Liverpool, who are tied with Arsenal for the number of points on the table, will be catapulted to the top of the charts (that is, if they defeat Brighton on Sunday) in case Man City earn the victory or draw against Arsenal, this Matchweek 30 clash at Etihad Stadium could end up being a pivotal contest for the EPL championship.

Meeting statistics

The current form of Manchester City

Riding on the ways of the most recent positive form is where the hosts will enter the contest. They were held to a tie in one of their previous seven matches across all competitions but, more importantly, they have won six games within this stretch. “The Citizens“ are trying to build on their success from last season by finishing the 2023–24 season strong. In the last seven games, they’ve scored 17 goals and given up just five. In their most recent match, Manchester City easily defeated Newcastle United 2-0 in the FA Cup quarter-finals. They aim to continue getting good results in their subsequent game as well.

“Pep“ Guardiola will need to address a few injury worries before deciding on his starting lineup against Arsenal. In the FA Cup’s win over Newcastle Utd., City played without goalkeeper Ederson in the lineup. The Brazilian is questionable for the upcoming match too. Not only did star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne withdraw from Belgium’s squad for the international break, but he wasn’t included in the protocol for this FA Cup duel either. Guardiola is hoping that “The Ginger Pele“ can make a timely return since his presence is vital to the team. Kyle Walker, meantime, has underlined that he’ll be able to play despite having a near-injury while on England’s national team.

The current form of Arsenal

Similarly, the visitors’ current form is comparable to that of their next opponents. In their last seven games across all competitions, “The Gunners“ have won six and lost one. They had an incredible 24 goals scored and an equally astounding two goals surrendered throughout that streak. In their most recent match, Arsenal—who had won eight straight Premier League games—overcame Porto to go to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. With this next trip up North, they want to break their curse against City.

Manager Mikel Arteta will also have to contend with a few ailments, and they are all important players. Following a cruciate ligament injury, JurriënTimber is nearing the end of his recuperation and has returned to high-intensity training. In early April, he might be considered for matchday squads, but now it’s too early. Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka, the starting wingers, have both recently had minor injuries. After recovering from his foot surgery, the Brazilian is cleared to participate, and the young English player of Nigerian origin will probably be evaluated just before kickoff to see if he can play.

Head-to-head encounters

Between 2010 and 2020, these two teams’ competitive meetings had exactly one outcome, with City emerging victorious. “The Gunners“, who have won their past two games, have nevertheless turned things around. But with three victories in the last five meetings, City is ahead in the head-to-head and a favorite based on odds launched by Premier League’s best betting sites.

Match analytics

Although Arsenal have played with grace and class in the last few weeks, they haven’t been able to duplicate those kinds of performances at the Etihad lately for some reason. They’ll need to play this game at their very best if they are to gain anything. In three of the previous five games between these two titans of the Premier League, both teams have scored, and that’s probably going to happen again. Arsenal last prevailed in a game at the Etihad in 2015, and they last collected a point there in 2017. To break this hoodoo, they’ll need to put up a fierce battle with the demons of the past.

All things considered, Manchester City are the clear favorites to win this match right now. They haven’t lost since December and appear determined to win more trophies this year.

The “Result + Total” market’s game “W1 And TU 3.5 – Yes” (Man City to win and total goals under 3.5) with odds of 2.78 at Betwinner is the prediction.
