Manchester City vs Arsenal prediction 01/27/2023

The Premier League is on break this weekend. But this does not mean that the players will be able to rest. Indeed, the oldest FA Cup competition is moving on to the next stage. The 4th round of the FA Cup is on the calendar and some interesting matches are planned for this round of the FA Cup. The hottest match will take place on Friday in Manchester. The leader of the Premier League “Arsenal” faced the English champion “Manchester City”.

In recent years, the team that dominated everything in England was Manchester City. City are playing very good football again this season, but are already 5 points behind their North London rivals in the Premier League. Last weekend the Citizens won 3-0 over Wolverhampton Wanderers. Check out our Man City vs Arsenal prediction to find out who will win Friday’s clash.

Arsenal have had a fantastic season so far. The North London team is the leader in the Premier League. In addition, the Gunners have the second best attack in the Championship. Mikel Arteta’s side cemented their place at the top of the table with a 3-2 win over Manchester United last Sunday.

Manchester City: news and form

Apart from numerous league titles, Manchester City has also won the FA Cup six times. Citizens last won this title in the 2018/2019 season. In the final, “Manchester City” crushed the rival “Watford” with a score of 6:0 and almost rolled sideways from the suburbs of London.

This season, coach Pep Guardiola wants to repeat this achievement. The third round of the cup ended with a sovereign victory of “Citizens” against “Chelsea” (4:0). However, it seems that another league title is not on the agenda for the Skyblues. “Manchester City” is currently 5 points behind the leader “Arsenal” and even has a game to play. However, the Citizens were able to comfortably beat Wolves 3-0 this weekend.

Last season, two football players shared the title of the top scorer of the Premier League. Mo Salah and Heu-min Son scored 23 goals in the league last season. After 20 games in “Manchester City”, Erling Haaland scored 25 goals in the Premier League this season.

Criticism of Haaland has been increasing recently as he has not scored in three consecutive official games. The 22-year-old football player immediately returned with one goal to “Tottenham” and three goals to “Wolverhampton”. It was Man City’s fourth hat-trick in the Premier League this season, number 9. In the cup competitions, Haaland was saved most of the time and the world champion Julian Alvarez attacked instead. It will be interesting to see who lines up on offense on Friday.

It is difficult to predict which squad Pep Guardiola will play. The Spanish often rotate in the FA Cup, but Arsenal are the top team. We think Ortega will keep the goal for the Citizens again like he did in the previous cup games. All Manchester City players are ready for this game.

Arsenal: news and form

Arsenal’s favorite tournament is the FA Cup. The North London club has already won the FA Cup 14 times. The last time the Gunners did it was in the 2019/20 season, when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice against Chelsea in the final. However, coach Mikel Arteta’s side were eliminated in the third round last season after losing 1-0 to Second Division side Nottingham Forest. This season, the heavyweights of English football await him directly in the 4th round.

If the FA Cup is not won this season, Arsenal still have a chance to win the historic Premier League title. The last time “ballers” won the Premier League in 2004. Until that season, no pundit believed the North Londoners were capable of such a performance. Arsenal are currently playing exceptional attacking football and lead the league with 5 points. This weekend the Gunners won 3-2 in the top-flight against Manchester United thanks to a late goal from Nketiah.

Whether in attack or defense, hardly anyone can beat Arsenal this season. With 45 goals, “Arsenal” is the second best striker in the Premier League. The goals are distributed across the different shoulders of the attack. Captain Martin Ødegaard leads the domestic scoring charts with eight league goals.

Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka have already scored seven goals. Striker Eddie Nketiah, who replaced the injured Gabriel Jesus, is also increasingly effective. He scored two goals against “Manchester United” and made a decisive contribution to the victory of the “gunners”. In total, Nketiah has already scored 9 goals in official games this season.

“Arsenal’s” squad may also be different from what we are used to. Until now, coach Mikel Arteta has usually given players with less playing time a chance to start cup matches. Turner has been the keeper of the trophy so far, but we can imagine Aaron Ramsdale will be in the cage as well. Gabriel Jesus and Reiss Nelson are still injured and out of the Gunners squad.

Manchester City currently have the best attack in the Premier League and perhaps the most balanced squad in the entire league. “Arsenal” also has an extremely strong attack and a very large squad. While coach Mikel Arteta may change some positions, there will be plenty of attacking quality on the pitch. Therefore, we believe that both teams will score in this duel.
