The Arsenal vs. Manchester City match will be played on Sunday, August 12, at the Emirates Stadium, London. This is the first round match of English Premier League 2018/19 season.


  • Arsenal won five out of their last six games. Arsenal scored at least one goal in eight matches in a row in all competitions.
  • Manchester City won seven out of their last 10 games in all competitions. They are currently in a series of two wins.


In their previous ten meetings, Arsenal recorded three victories, Manchester City had four wins, while three matches ended in a draw. Manchester City is in a series of three victories against Arsenal. In their last eight games we saw over 2.5 goals.


Arsene Wenger left the club during the summer and the new era for Arsenal has begun. Unai Emeri slightly altered the team, but the most of the squad remained the same. Arsenal fans are excited to see their club under a new boss, and they hope that Emeri will elevate the team and finally challenge the best clubs in the league and fight for the title. In the upcoming game against Manchester City, Arsenal will try to break the tradition and stay undefeated.

As a defending champions, Manchester City will try to start off their new season with a victory over the team which is regarded as one of the candidates for the top four position. We expect that they will come out strong, and try to dictate the tempo of the match from the beginning. On the other hand, their manager, Pep Guardiola, would probably settle for a draw against a difficult opponent such as Arsenal.
