Manchester City Tipped To Win An Entertaining Carabao Cup Final Against Arsenal

The first piece of silverware will be dished out on Sunday afternoon as Arsenal take on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup Final at Wembley and it is fair to say that neither of these two sides have enjoyed the best preparation for the game...

  • Manchester City have won two of their last 10 meetings with Arsenal (drawn four, lost four), although those two victories came in the last four clashes
  • Sergio Aguero has scored in each of his past four appearances against Arsenal

Recent Form

City were stunned 1-0 by Wigan in the FA Cup earlier this week as any lingering hopes of a 'quadruple' were ruined, although it is probably fair to say that they have bigger priorities. Pep Guardiola's men have already beaten West Bromwich Albion, Wolves, Leicester and Bristol City en route to this final and they are 8/13 favourites for Sunday (William Hill).

Arsenal were beaten 2-1 at home by Ostersunds on Thursday night but they still progressed to the last-sixteen of the Europa League with a 4-2 victory on aggregate, with Arsene Wenger's side 9/2 for the win or 16/5 to take Sunday's final to extra-time with a draw.
Match Odds:

Head-To-Head

Arsenal had an excellent record at Wembley, winning nine in a row (including extra-time) before they lost the North London derby to Tottenham recently, and they did beat Manchester City in the semi-finals of the FA Cup at Wembley last season.

In fact, the Gunners have a decent record in this Arsenal v Man City fixture, losing only two of the last ten clashes in all competitions.

However, Sergio Aguero has often caused Arsenal problems as he has scored seven goals in 12 matches against them, including a goal in each of his last four appearances in this fixture, and he is 7/2 favourite to score first (Paddy Power).

This is a match-up that tends to guarantee goals and the bet of both teams to score combined with over 2.5 goals (10/11 with Coral) has landed in five of the last six meetings, with City winning 3-1 in their most recent league clash.

City's extra quality should tell at Wembley too and they are 7/4 to win in a match where both teams score.
