Manchester City hosts Arsenal in round 5 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, October 17th at Etihad Stadium (Manchester)
The Citizens lost to Liverpool in the 2019-2020 championship race, and it happened ahead of schedule. The club's management and Pep Guardiola were expected to react to this. Indeed, the long-awaited defender, Nathan Ake, was quickly acquired in the offseason. At the same time, the management bought Ferran Torres to replace David Silva. Fortunately, the financial situation of Valencia did not allow bargaining. However, as often happens, this is not enough. And it manifested itself in the current weak point - the attack. But they knew that Sergio Aguero would need time to recover. Then Gabriel Jesus picked up an injury, and the club with a billion-dollar budget was forced to field young Delap. As a result, Man City lost to Leicester (2-5) and tied with Leeds (1-1). However, another newcomer, Ruben Dias, has already played against the latter.

The Gunners went through a very difficult last season. As a result, Arteta became the manager instead of Emery, but he didn’t manage to raise his native club even in the top seven of the Premier League. At the same time, he confirmed the prospects of his appointment after victory in the FA Cup (which allowed his team to retain a place at least in the Europa League). Now the strengthened team (Saliba, Gabriel, Willian, and Thomas Partey) looks much more promising. And it gives a good result on the pitch. Yes, the Gunners lost to Liverpool in the Premier League, but they beat it in the Community Shield and League Cup. Then the Gunners knocked out Leicester, and they were stronger than Fulham, West Ham, and Sheffield United in the championship. Will Arsenal manage to continue the season in the same triumphant spirit?
Manchester City will be the obvious favorite of the upcoming match. But it won't be easy to prove the status when the forwards are injured, and Arsenal has a good team now. I think the visitors will not lose with a difference of more than one goal.
Prediction for the match: Arsenal to win with +1.5 handicap
