Arsenal and Man City face off with a Premier League top-four finish at stake

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City make the journey to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal on Sunday and it's sure to be one of the most talked about fixtures of the weekend, as intense speculation continues to build around the future of manager Arsene Wenger and star player Alexis Sanchez. The Frenchman is undoubtedly the Gunners' greatest ever manager, but a very vocal portion of fans have decided the club must go in a new direction having failed to win the league since the 2003-04 season and with Arsenal having been knocked out of the Champions League by a 10-2 aggregate score to Bayern Munich.

City will be hopeful of climbing the table to second place with Tottenham facing a tough away trip to Burnley, and Guardiola will be hopeful of continued strong form in the league after a shaky start to the season. The Citizens are unbeaten in seven games and the emergence of Gabriel Jesus as a huge young talent and Sergio Aguero's return to form will mean the Gunners will be under immense pressure.

Despite holding the home team advantage, Arsenal are 2/1 (3.00) to secure all three points from the fixture at bet365, whilst City go into the match favourites at 5/4 (2.25). With the attacking talents lining up on both sides, a high scoring match is likely, with the odds for over 2.5 goals reflecting this at 3/5 (1.60), with under 2.5 goals priced at 13/10 (2.30) with bet365. It also seems likely that both teams will score in the encounter, with both teams to score priced 1/2 (1.50) at bet365, whilst both teams not to score can be backed at 6/4 (2.50).

Sunday's match is also eligible for bet365's fantastic Euro Soccer Bonus, meaning you can earn up to 100% more on your returns if you place accumulators on the Premier League, Champions League, Primera Liga, Bundesliga or Serie A.

Place a pre-match accumulator of three or more selections on the Full Time Result or Result/Both Teams To Score markets combining teams in any of these competitions, and if successful, bet365 will add the relevant bonus to your returns.

The maximum bonus that you can receive is ВЈ100,000 or currency equivalent. The bonus will not apply where a stake has been fully Cashed Out. Where a stake has been partially Cashed Out, the bonus will be calculated based on the remaining active stake.

Regardless of the outcome on Sunday, bet365 is sure to be the best place for all of your football betting.
