Arsenal vs Man City Stats Pack, Bet Builder Tips and Predictions

Arsenal vs Man City Bet Builder Stats Pack Featured Image

The Premier League breaks for international football after the biggest clash in England at present – Manchester City versus the club most likely to break their run of titles, Arsenal.   Both have had exceptional starts to the new campaign, City topping the pile, as per usual, having won six of their opening seven, while Arsenal sit in third and remain undefeated seven games in. Yet neither side is in perfect shape for the game.  

Arsenal responded to a North London derby draw with Tottenham by beating Brentford and Bournemouth before a 2-1 loss at Lens in the Champions League being one that has potentially cost them their star man in Bukayo Saka. City, meanwhile, are without Rodri and have seen their defence creak, losing against Wolves last time out before beating RB Leipzig 3-1 in midweek.  

Calling who wins such a potentially season-defining fixture isn’t easy but selecting an Arsenal vs Man City bet builder could be – read on below to get all the detail and numbers you need to win yourself a pretty penny or two on Sunday. Our Stats Pack Guide can help you find value in the data.

Arsenal vs Man City predicted lineups

Saka touch and go

Mikel Arteta has regularly relied upon the quality provided out wide by Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli but he has to make do without the latter and potentially the former in this mammoth clash. The primary question is who replaces them. Gabriel Jesus started on the left wing against Bournemouth in their 4-0 victory. Kai Havertz returned to the XI for that game, Fabio Vieira has started of late while Leandro Trossard will hope for another opportunity to establish himself.

Rodri’s absence causing a problem for Pep 

Pep Guardiola has found it difficult to replace Rodri in midfield. He doesn’t appear to favour Kalvin Phillips, Matheus Nunes played just a half of football against Wolves before being replaced while Rico Lewis started in midweek. Further forward, Jeremy Doku and Phil Foden are receiving more game time while Julian Alvarez has made a forward spot his own.

Arsenal vs Man City team stats

Arsenal wonderfully well-rounded 

Arsenal have played seven league games. They have had 12 or more shots in every game and four or more shots on target in six of those. They have conceded ten or fewer shots in five of those and three or fewer shots on target in seven. They have also had six or more corners in every game and conceded four or fewer in six league games.

City similarly dominant 

The problem for Arsenal is that they’re often seen as City lite and the numbers don’t help. City have had 14 or more shots in five of their league matches and four or more shots on target in every game. They have conceded ten or fewer shots and four or fewer shots on target in every game in all competitions. City have picked up two or more yellow cards in their last five domestic encounters and committed ten or more fouls in four of those. They do draw a lot of cards, however, drawing three or more in league games since opening day and three from Arsenal in the Community Shield.

Arsenal vs Man City Shots and Shots on Target Stats

Jesus back and firing 

Gabriel Jesus is probably the biggest threat for Arsenal and his return has partly showcased that, the striker has started four games in all competitions, having two or more shots in each game and a shot on target in three. He has taken two shots in both league games playing left wing. Martin Odegaard will need to step up again, the Norwegian midfielder had two or more shots in his first seven games before one in his last three.

Alvarez enjoying supporting role 

Julian Alvarez has had to shift his role for Man City in order to play, given he was in direct competition with Erling Haaland for the main striker role. He’s enjoying his new role, having two or more shots in six of his seven league starts and a shot on target in six of those, as well as a shot on target in nine out of ten starts in all competitions. Phil Foden, meanwhile, has had a shot in five of his six starts and a shot on target in four of those.

Arsenal vs Man City Goals and Assists Stats

Arsenal need someone to step up 

The Gunners are yet to really get one over City in the league, and it could be a significant psychological between them and lifting silverware in the coming seasons. Martin Odegaard has started well with four goal contributions but Eddie Nketiah (2 goals from 1.7 xG), Kai Havertz (1 goal from 1.6 xG) and Gabriel Jesus (1 goal from 1.5 xG) all have an opportunity to step up and prove themselves in a huge encounter.

Haaland continuing where he left off last season 

Erling Haaland played 35 league matches last season and scored 36 goals, assisting a further eight. This season, he has started seven league games and scored eight, assisting a further one. The Norwegian is firmly up and running once again. Julian Alvarez is at least doing well in his supporting role, scoring six and assisting four in his Manchester City appearances with six of those coming in his seven league games with at least one goal contribution in five of his seven games – you can back him in your bet builder at 2.40 to score or assist anytime.

Arsenal Cards and Fouls Stats

Gabriel and Jesus no angels 

Gabriel Jesus is back and not only is he arguably Arsenal’s finest attacking option, he’s also a very hard worker who loves to be combative. He has committed three fouls in two of his four starts and averaged 1.88 per 90 last season, decent numbers to back as he faces his former employers. While Jesus is expected to commit a foul, Gabriel isn’t, yet the Lens Champions League game in midweek was the first game he has played this season where he hasn’t conceded a single foul – he’s 1.83 to foul an opponent.  

10 6 2023 ARSENAL betbuilder stats pack CARDS FOR1

Jesus will find himself up against Kyle Walker and the Man City right back has been fouled in five of his seven Premier League starts. He’s not the only full back suffering with Josko Gvardiol drawing a foul in four of his five competitive starts for the club. Elsewhere, whoever plays wide for City will be a danger – Jeremy Doku has been fouled twice or more in his four Premier League starts, Grealish has regularly been one of the most fouled Premier League players and Phil Foden has been fouled in all six Premier League starts this season.

Man City Cards and Fouls Stats

Dias getting himself into trouble 

Ruben Dias is one of the most classy centre halves in the division but he’s not bothered about a physical tussle and he has found himself in a few this season, committing a foul in six of his nine starts for City. Otherwise, it’s the centre of the pitch most involved in the action – Rodri may not be around but Julian Alvarez, Matheus Nunes and Mateo Kovacic have all committed over a foul per 90 minutes.  

10 6 2023 MANCHESTER CITY betbuilder stats pack CARDS FOR1

Gabriel Jesus is a nuisance and has been fouled six times in two games from the left wing having also been fouled 2.45 times per game last season while leading the line. His replacement up top is doing his best to get involved in scrapes – Nketiah has been fouled in six of his seven starts domestically and two or more times in four of those.
