This weekend will see the match of the year in the English Premier League as Arsenal takes on Manchester City for the title. Between the teams is just one point, and the showdown will take place at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City in 22 has 19 wins and three draws. These draws against Crystal Palace, Chelsea, and Liverpool have determined their current position in the table. Currently, they have 63 points, one shy of league leaders Liverpool and Arsenal. Their chances of another title are rated higher than other contenders as City consistently competes for top positions and is accustomed to pressure, with the added advantage of a favorable fixture list.

Arsenal, for the second consecutive year, has emerged as league leaders before the spring finale. However, the experience of the previous season suggests that the London side may struggle to cope with the pressure. Nevertheless, the Gunners have rectified past mistakes, showing versatility in their actions and achieving a balance in their gameplay with eight consecutive wins and an overall score of 33:4. The issue of the central forward has been resolved, with each attacking player contributing to the score sheet. The team’s advancement to the quarterfinals of the Champions League has undoubtedly fueled them for new challenges. It will be disappointing if the current Arsenal squad fails to win anything significant this season.

Arsenal holds a noticeable advantage over their opponents as almost all players have returned to fitness after international matches. The participation of Gabriel, Ben White, and Thomas Partey is doubtful due to injuries, but they are close to recovery.

Manchester City approaches this juncture with personnel issues as six players sustained injuries during international duty: John Stones, Kyle Walker, Manuel Akanji, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias, and Erling Haaland, with reports suggesting Haaland’s injury may not be serious.

The game of the year between Manchester City and Arsenal in 1xBet is rated as follows: a victory for City is valued at 1.952, while a win for Arsenal stands at 4.01, and a draw with odds of 3.94. However, Arsenal leads in the number of clean sheets, having recorded 11 out of 28, one more than City. Nevertheless, a goalless match is unlikely as Pep Guardiola’s side typically starts their games better, winning half of the first halves, and scoring in the last six matches within this period. Therefore, a bet on the 1st Half Total Over 1.5 is offered at 1.34, or an individual Total Over 1.5 for the 1st half at 1.8.
