Possible outcome Arsenal vs Manchester City Preview
Both teams met couple days ago in the Carabao Cup final where Manchester City won and took the trophy to Etihad Stadium. During this game Manchester City had only 53% possession on the ball which fairly lower then their 66.5% average away possession. Which lead to conclusion, even though the match was won 3-0 for Manchester City, Arsenal was worthy opponent for them.
Nacho Monreal and Lacazzete have been out of game since 10.02.2018 and ever since the bad form for Arsenal begins.
We believe that these two players are crucial for the team at the moment, since Arsenal doesn’t have an adequate players that can cover for their absence in terms of quality of the play.
Our opinion is that Manchester City might easily win this game, and add another three points to their account, but we should be aware that they have another derby match in their schedule against Chelsea.
One should consider even a draw, but Arsenal winning this game is out of question.
