Man City vs Arsenal 2015 – Match Predictions:
Arsenal has started to play decent football in the recent couple of weeks but their low point is always the fragile defense and keeping problems. On the other hand City has been fantastic even without their talisman Sergio Aguero as they have not only closed the gap to chelsea but also playing good football.
Going into the Arsenal game they are sure to be favourites, specially since they are playing at home and new signing Wilfried Bony will give them and extra edge on the visiting side. Arsenal on the other hand have most of their players back from injuries and Mesut Ozil and Walcot are likely to start alongside Cazorla, Ramsey and Jack Wilshere.
Looking at both teams I can see City slightly favorite and in better shape and there will be goals in this game like always this fixture has produced some fantastic high scoring matches. Last league game between the two at Emirates finished 2-2 but I can see City nicking this one.
