Arsenal vs Manchester City LIVE Match Football Score 28 Aug 2021
ABOUT THE MATCH
Manchester City is going head to head with Arsenal starting on 28 Aug 2021 at 11:30 UTC at Etihad Stadium stadium, Manchester city, England. The match is a part of the Premier League.
Arsenal is a place where arms and ammunition are made, maintained and repaired, stored, or issued, in any combination, whether privately or publicly owned. Arsenal and armoury (British English) or armory (American English) are mostly regarded as synonyms, although subtle differences in usage exist.
Manchester City haven’t had the best of starts to their Premier League campaign, losing the opening game to Tottenham. That was also their second competitive game, having lost the Community Shield contest to Leicester City. However, the champions found their rhythm against Norwich City, thrashing the Canaries 5-0.
With three points in the bag, Pep Guardiola will turn his attention towards Arsenal. Manchester City will want to head into the international break with momentum on their side. Things are not entirely positive at the Etihad; the Harry Kane transfer falling through and the Benjamin Mendy situation might have dampened the mood.
However, they can look forward to facing Arsenal and aim to get a positive result. Man City have recently had a successful period against the Gunners, beating the side twice the last term.
Arsenal have had the worst start to a Premier League season as far as fans can remember. The loss to Brentford and Chelsea has added pressure on Arteta and the squad to get points on board. The Gunners also failed to score in either of their opening games, with fans asking more questions about the club’s ambitions.
However, Arteta’s side got a breather when they thrashed West Brom by six goals in the Carabao Cup during midweek. The Gunners played a fluid style of football not common during Arteta’s reign at the club, and fans will be hoping to see more of the same against Man City.
The FA Cup semifinal win back in the 19/20 season remains Arsenal’s most recent victory over Man City. However, at the Etihad, they haven’t beaten the champions in the last five league meetings. Arteta will be hoping to take his team into the international break with some level of optimism, and it’s only possible with a positive result against Man City.
Manchester City 3-1 Arsenal
The Gunners have shown a tendency to spring surprises recently, although Manchester City are different gravy. The Gunners have not been able to beat them in the last few years, especially at the Etihad.
Expect a clean Manchester City victory, as they could score at least three goals. While the champions’ defence is stronger, Arsenal’s newfound rhythm could trouble them occasionally and possibly achieve a goal in the process. Nonetheless, Manchester City should take all three points against the Gunners to heap more pressure on Arteta.
