Online Betting Tips For Arsenal Fans

Despite bowing out of both domestic cup competitions, Premier League pacesetters Arsenal could be on the verge of a historic season.

High-performing manager Mikel Arteta faces a golden opportunity to remove the Gunners’ tag as ‘serial bottlers’ as his men pursue the two most coveted club titles in European football. 

Ending a two-decade title wait in England’s top flight would be a career-defining achievement for the 41-year-old Spaniard, especially considering many online betting platforms still consider Arsenal the outsiders.

Level on points with second-placed Liverpool, the North London heavyweights boast a fragile one-point lead on perennial champions Manchester City heading into March’s international break.

Arteta will have to work around the clock over the next fortnight to prepare his side for a title six-pointer against Pep Guardiola’s team at the Etihad Stadium.

Crunch Game from Fans’ Perspective

Fans await this mouth-watering contest with bated breath. As one of the best-supported teams in world football, Arsenal have seen a spike in popularity on various continents. 

The Gunners’ continuous effort to spread their appeal worldwide has intensified, with the club gaining heavy traction in India since launching a comprehensive promo campaign a decade ago.

In 2014, sportswear powerhouse PUMA joined hands with the Gunners in the club’s most lucrative partnership deal. The Premier League titans seized the opportunity to promote their new jersey in India. 

Club legend Freddie Ljunberg was the face of the campaign as Arsenal launched their kit in Bengaluru, which proved a turning point in asserting influence within the country. 

Arsenal Well-Positioned to Upset Apple Cart 

Following a sluggish end to 2023, Arsenal have gone from strength to strength at the start of the new calendar year, winning all eight league matches by an aggregate score of 33-3. 

Perhaps the leading bookmakers have taken the Gunners’ formidable Premier League form out of the equation when setting the odds for the upcoming clash in Manchester.

Or the reason behind the odds stacked against Arteta’s free-firing squad could be the bookies give Man City too much credit after conquering the competition three seasons on the bounce. 

However, Arsenal affirmed their title credentials in the reverse fixture as Gabriel Martinelli’s late winner inspired them to a 1-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium. 

It was Arteta’s first top-flight triumph against his former mentor and Arsenal’s first Premier League success against Man City since December 2015. 

Pulling off a first league double against the Cityzens since 2007/08 would go a long way in establishing the Gunners as the leading title contenders, and we back them to do just that.

Tip: Arsenal to beat Man City at long odds

Bukayo Saka to Score

One goal may not be enough to take three points away from the Etihad.

According to Express Sport, Gabriel Magalhaes has withdrawn from the Brazil squad due to injury and is now at risk of missing out on this pivotal contest.

Gabriel’s absence would significantly weaken the Gunners at the back, which would, in turn, put more pressure on Arteta’s frontlines.

Considering Man City’s well-documented home dominance, Arsenal will need someone to step up to the plate, and that someone could be Bukayo Saka. 

With 13 goals and ten assists, the 22-year-old winger is the Gunners’ most prolific player in the Premier League this term, plus he’s been in phenomenal form in 2024 as well. 

Saka has tallied seven goals and added three assists in only eight league appearances this calendar year, soaking up the limelight as one of the fiercest forwards in the division. 

His incredible form negates his perennial struggles against Man City as he’s only had three goal contributions in ten matches against Guardiola’s side. 

There’s no shortage of confidence either, as the England international admitted Arsenal have what it takes to beat the Cityzens in their own backyard during his recent interview with TNT Sports
