Arsenal FC vs. Manchester City
The biggest match in the Premier League this week and probably the biggest game of the season so far is Monday night's top of the table clash between the Arsenal and Manchester City at the Emirates.

This one promises to be a real classic, but how many times have we been so excited about a huge match like this for to be let down and totally disappointed, and I have a terrible feeling that we could be heading that way again.

The last couple of weeks have been huge ones for The Gunners' with three very important wins which has seem them slashed in the Premier League betting and qualifying again for the knock-out stages of the Champions League where Barcelona await in the last 16 in the New Year.
Arsene Wenger's side have only lost once at home in the Premier League all season and that was in their first match of the campaign against West Ham and they are available at 2.50 with Betfred to add to their impressive recent run with success in this one.

The Gunners' did beat City last season at the Etihad 2-0 and that was the match were midfielder Francis Coquelin came to prominence with a man of the match display and his loss is a big, big blow to his side in this one.

City are 3.10 for the win at Coral and with just four wins in their last eight matches, you can never really tell exactly what City side will turn up at the moment and with just one win in their last five away matches, they aren't a side that I want to get involved with in this one.


The Picks
I always like backing the draw when bookies can't split two sides, and with nothing really separating these two teams, the draw looks the most likely to me and at 3.50 with Bet365; which is the biggest price of the three match outcomes is certainly the best way to get involved.

Last year these two Premier League giants played their part in a 2-2 cracker and with four draws in this fixture in the last six meetings, well it really is one of the better soccer picks of the weekend on the prices that the soccer odds board offers.

Two of those four draws ended goalless, and with 0-0 draws already in high profile home matches at against Liverpool for the Gunners' and also in the Manchester derby for City, is a 0-0 draw the worst result for either side? It is well worth taking at a general very large 13.0 with a whole host of bookmakers.

I really think the best strategy all week is to back every Premier League to feature under 2.5 goals, end in draws, and all to end goalless as I'm certain we are in for some close clashes this weekend.
