1. Recent Performances

Gunners Need Some Fire

Arsenal have been maddeningly inconsistent in recent weeks, as speculation continues to grow that manager Arsene Wenger does not have long left in the job. Wenger has had a habit of pulling out great results just when they were needed during his long, long spell with the Gunners, but his team could not do that on Sunday at Wembley.

That 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final would be disappointing enough, were it not for the way in which the Gunners appeared to capitulate entirely in the game’s last quarter. The lack of effort that seemed to infect the team in the latter stages of the match will have discouraged even the most optimistic Gunners fan.

Recent weeks have also seen the team lose to Ostersunds at home, as well as north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley, and Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. Yet they have also managed to thrash Everton 5-1 at the Emirates, a sign that when things are aligned the Gunners are still capable of producing quality.

The key to Thursday’s clash would seem to be how much focused and motivated the team is, and whether Wenger can still work his magic on a discouraged and demoralised looking set of players.

City Strolling to a Treble

In contrast to Arsenal, Manchester City looked extremely confident in their abilities at Wembley at the weekend. Their only glitch in recent weeks has come at Wigan Athletic, where Pep Guardiola’s team came a cropper in the FA Cup fifth round. That shock defeat ended the club’s hopes of a quadruple of trophies this season, but a treble is now distinct possibility, especially after their emphatic win over Arsenal on Sunday to clam the Carabao Cup.

City have lost just three games out of the last 49 in all competitions, and their win on Sunday was Arsenal’s worst ever defeat in a cup final of any kind. Guardiola’s men will be keen to repeat the dose on Thursday night.

City are no 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, and have a game in hand. That makes them all but impossible to catch, given that they could lose four games, and still top the Premier League. The target now is not just to win the league, but to do it with a record number of points. Chelsea are the current record holder, with 95 points, a total set in 2005.City are currently on 72, so three more against Arsenal would be just the ticket.

3. Previous Games

These teams last met in the Premier League on November 5, at the Etihad. That day, City ran out convincing 3-1 winners, thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Auero (penalty) and Gabriel de Jesus. Alexandre Lacazette scored in the 54th minute to bring the game back to 2-1, after Aguero’s penalty, before Jesus finished off the Gunners with his 74th minute strike.

At Wembley on Sunday, City also scored three goals to win the Carabao Cup final 3-0 at Wembley. Arsenal looked well beaten by the end of that game, and many of the Arsenal vs Manchester City match previews being written will take that result as evidence that the Gunners have no chance in Thursday evening’s game. It would certainly be hard to argue with anyone who puts forward that point of view. Goals from Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva were enough to see City to their first trophy of 2018.

4. Game Prediction

Given the recent form of these two teams, it is hard to look beyond a win for the team in sky blue on Thursday night. City look very confident and well-motivated at the moment, and have plenty of reasons to maintain their high standards as we head into the business end of the season. All of their players are in good form, and their manager seems to have to do very little, as things to stand, to ensure that his team plays in the way he wants.

Arsenal, in contrast, look a little ragged and lacking in confidence. Wenger may well be near the end of his time at the club, and he certainly looks like a manager who is struggling to motivate his players. For that reason, a home defeat looks likely on Thursday. Arsenal vs Manchester City prediction: Arsenal 1-3 Man City.
