Arsenal v Man City Betting: Odds point towards a draw at the Emirates

Super Sunday comes to an exciting conclusion with Arsenal v Man City from the Emirates this weekend and there is all to play for in North London. Arsenal are still chasing that important top-four finish this season, while City will be looking to close the gap with bitter rivals Manchester United at the top of the table.

There is little to choose between them in the match betting as Arsenal can be backed at 13/8, while City are available at 17/10, although the draw could be the way to go at 9/4 with PaddyPower, who are offering to refund all losing first scorer, last scorer, correct score and scorecast single bets on the match if it ends in a draw.

Arsenal have drawn seven of their last 15 matches and they remain a tough team for punters to back. Arsene Wenger's side go from the sublime to the ridiculous at times and that has been highlighted in their last two league outings as they beat Newcastle 7-3 before putting in a woeful display to nick a 1-1 draw at Southampton. They have since drawn 2-2 in the FA Cup at Swansea and it was a result that did at least extend their unbeaten run to five matches.

Wenger will fancy his side will have few better opportunities to beat this Manchester City team as Roberto Mancini's men are missing a host of key players. Yaya and Kolo Toure have left for the African Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast, while Sergio Aguero is out injured and Samir Nasri is suspended. The loss of Aguero in particular is a huge blow and it will be left to Carlos Tevez (5/1 to score first) and Edin Dzeko (6/1 to score first) to provide the firepower.

Mario Balotelli may get the chance to prove himself off the bench after his recent indiscretions in a training ground bust up with Mancini, although it could be tempting to take a punt on the special price of 16/1 for him to be sent off on Sunday. He has previous in this fixture after getting sent off last year - one of four red cards in the last five meetings between these sides.

This fixture has tended to throw up a few trends and one of those is the noticeable lack of goals. Despite the attacking talent on display from both teams, only five goals have been scored in the last six meetings between the two, including a 1-1 draw at the Etihad earlier this season. Furthermore, there have only been five goals scored in six clashes between them at the Emirates and the 11/10 for under 2.5 goals could be worth a look in the latest betting with PaddyPower.

City can ill-afford to drop any more points this weekend as they look to push United hard at the top of the table. They may have only lost one of their last six but their performances away from home have left a lot to be desired as they lost 1-0 to Sunderland and edged to a 4-3 win at Norwich recently. A significantly weakened team might have to settle for a point this weekend and the correct score of 1-1 could be the way to go at 11/2.
