Manchester City to win both halves @ 4/1 with Betfair

When Gary Neville began tearing into Arsenal for their performance in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday, no one was surprised at anything. Not the result, nor the lethargic, awful performance from the Gunners. Manchester City have outclassed almost every opponent they have faced this season, so there is no shame in losing to them, but the manner in which Arsene Wenger’s side appeared to roll over suggested deep problems at the Emirates Stadium.

But they can prove some doubters wrong this Thursday night when they play the league game that was postponed from last weekend. Pep Guardiola’s men took a step closer to completing a treble this season, despite seeing their chances of a clean sweep of trophies ended by Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup last week. Should they win this game, they will re-establish a 16-point lead atop the Premier League and they are on course to win it in April’s Manchester Derby.


Away from the cup defeat, Arsenal are also still reeling from another loss at Wembley, this time in the Premier League in the North London Derby to arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur. They are on course for their worst season under Wenger, beating last year, but they do have a good record at the Emirates Stadium despite last week’s Europa League loss to Ostersunds.

Manchester City are still holding an unassailable lead atop the Premier League and are comfortable in the Champions League, but will be frustrated by their FA Cup exit.

Petr Cech should replace David Ospina in goal for Arsenal, but they have no fresh injury concerns ahead of this one.

Manchester City, too, have a clean bill of health with the exception of Benjamin Mendy.
