Saturday night’s match between Arsenal and Man City has big significance for both sides, Arsenal are trying to cement their spot and chip away at the top two whilst City are going head to head with Spurs and Villa for the coveted fourth spot. The Gunners have an impressive home record to preserve they’ve won 15 out of 19 games at The Emirates including victories in their last five. So 10/11 on another home win looks to have value despite just being odds on, the return to full fitness of Robin Van Persie should add more quality to the front line and he’ll be eager to make a point against Man City.

Injuries have hindered Arsenal all season and this weekend when Andrey Arshavin and Manuel Almunia were expected to return they miss out. But Alex Song could return to add some muscle in the centre of the field and Robin Van Persie should be fit enough for a starting place, he leads the first scorer betting at 4/1 and is available at 6/1 to score a penalty. He showed in his last two appearances that he has lost none of his touch whilst injured and will want to finish the season on a high before jetting off to the World Cup.

First Score Betting
4/1 Van Persie
9/2 Bendtner
8/1 Walcott
11/1 Nasri
11/1 Rosicky
12/1 Diaby
22/1 Eboue
25/1 Song

All the pre-match talk will be on the return of the former Arsenal players, two from the ‘Untouchables’ side Patrick Vieira and Kolo Toure come back for the first time in the light blue of Man City. Arsenal fans have yet to see Vieira at their new home and he’ll be warmly received as will the ever reliable defensive stalwart Kolo Toure. Silvinhio also plays for Man City now although he may not make the squad on Saturday he’s still fondly remember and Emmanuel Adebayor also returns.
