Man City vs Arsenal prediction

Arsenal look in imperious form and absolutely brimming with confidence after beating Manchester United in the final minute.

However, United laid out a rough plan of how to beat the Gunners, and Pep Guardiola will as ever have his own ideas.

City were much improved against Wolves, and Erling Haaland got his fourth hat-trick of the season, so should have too much for the Gunners.

Man City to win, 2-1.
