The bookmakers favourites and second favourites for the Premier League title – City are now 13/10 with Paddy Power, while Arsenal can be backed at 13/8 with Bet365.

But Arsenal are favourites to win at the Emirates, with William Hill offering the best odds of 29/20, while City are available at 21/10 and the draw at 5/2 (both Bet365).

Arsenal have scored just 11 goals in seven home games so far this season, but they have only conceded 5 times. Meanwhile, after winning their first three away games this season, City have struggled on their travels since – winning none of their last four on the road, including a 4-1 defeat at Spurs and a 2-0 loss at Stoke last week.

Vincent Kompany’s absence will be crucial on Monday night – City have played eight games with him and eight with him missing this season – and they have conceded 16 goals without him (one clean sheet) and just 1 goal with him (7 clean sheets).

They have also failed to score in any of their last three away games (0-0 at Villa, 0-0 at Man United and 0-2 at Stoke), so we like odds of 4/1 for Arsenal ‘To Win To Nil’.

On the same basis, we suggest backing Arsenal to win 2-0 and 3-0 with Bet365, as they refund losing Correct Score bets on all games that finish 0-0. Bet365 are also offering a risk free £50 In-Play bet on this game – if you place a £50 pre-match bet.

Finally, back Aaran Ramsay to score first at 11/1 with William Hill (8/1 elsewhere). Not only do Hills offer the best odds, but they will also refund losing First Goalscorer bets, up to £50, if your player scores the second goal or if the match finishes 0-0.

The Welshman looks to be returning to his best, scoring in Arsenal’s last two games.
