Logic says Man Shitty will win as they haven't won in 4 games. They are strong at home and welcome back Richard Dunne, who has been voted best City player 3 years running, so that's how much he means to the club. Robinho Elano and co return after beating Portugal 6-2, with Elano even bagging a goal, which means they'll be raring to go for this match. Arsenal, on the other hand, slumped 2-0 to Villa last week and have just dropped Gallas and stripped him of his captaincy - it's a team with many problems in its squad that can't be addressed overnight. Toure is doubtful and Gallas is dropped so it's going to be Silvestre and Djourou in the centre.. hardly a defensive partnership worth mentioning. Walcott is also out for this match, so I really think that Arsenal can get at most a draw from this match, which means Man Shitty on the handicap.
Roland's prediction: $5 on Man City +0/0.5 @ 2.00 = $10.00
man city is the heavy boat going into this game, and that is really tempting me to put some on arsenal. arsenal have finally dropped gallas, and i'm sure silvestre and djourou will make a far better partnership, both of them aggressive in the air, and fairly quick on the deck as well. besides, walcott and eboue injured opens the door for the impressive aaron ramsey, or maybe even wilshere. the youngsters will be eager to impress, and should have enough quality to trouble a porous man city defence. besides, city like to play an attacking game, which suits arsenal. i think the worst arsenal will do here is a draw.
