Manchester City vs Arsenal 2018/19 English Premier League Opening Match Predictions

Matchday One of the 2018/19 English Premier League season will see two heavyweights in Manchester City and Arsenal face off. For some punters and pundits this is a great thing as from the word go we get to see top class performances but to others, the match comes way too early as both teams would not have found much rhythm. However, regardless of the opinions of most people, the fact is, the match is going on matchday one. In the build-up to the match, here is a detailed preview. Note that there is still time for you to make your prediction by visiting

Form Coming into the New Season
It’s difficult to assess any team based on preseason games as most teams rest their top players and only fringe players’ get to get game time. Nonetheless, let’s look at how both teams have fared when they played their preseason matches (against top teams only). Both teams have played three notable friendly games apiece with five of those matches coming in the International Champions Cup. From their three matches, Manchester City has lost twice to Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund while they had to come from behind in the third match against Bayern Munich. Arsenal, on the other hand, won two of their three friendlies convincing beating Boreham Wood by 8 goals to nil before dispatching PSG by 5 goals to 1. Arsenal drew the other match against Atletico Madrid.

Head to Head
Overall, Arsenal has a better head to head record against Manchester City but the tide has been slowly changing in recent times. Last season, these two teams faced on three occasions, twice in the league and once in the League Cup (final). Manchester City won on all three occasions. The last time that Arsenal beat Manchester City came during the 2016/17 season when Manchester City was defeated in the FA Cup semi-final.

Key Players
As this match comes on the opening day of the season, form will not be much of a huge factor in deciding who wins and who loses. Therefore, this means that the biggest determinant of a winner between these two heavyweights will be down to the players on the pitch on the day.
For Manchester City, things are not looking very bright as manager Pep Guardiola would want. Manchester City is going to be affected first and foremost by World Cup omissions. Due to their appearances in the later stages of the World Cup, several Manchester City stars are on an extended break and they will not feature in the opening match/s. these include captain Vincent Kompany and Kevin De Bryune who was sensational last season and also Brazilian Fernandinho. Secondly, Manchester City will be missing other stars through injury including summer signing Riyad Mahrez.
For Arsenal, they will have a full squad to choose from. Most of the players who participated in the World Cup are back at the club while others notably summer signing Lucas Toreirra and Danny Welbeck will all be back before the start of the season.

Verdict: Arsenal is likely to nick this one as they will have a full-strength squad in comparison to Manchester City.


The World Cup is the biggest tournament in world football, with the best national team from around the world competing against each other every four years in order to get their hands on the prestigious FIFA World Cup trophy. The most successful nation which has competed in the competition is Brazil. The South American nation have won the competition at total of five times and the World Cup 2018 betting odds suggest that they are one of the favourites to lift the trophy for the sixth time. However, the side will face fierce competition from current world champions Germany who will have their eyes on winning their second consecutive World Cup trophy and their fifth trophy in total. Victory this summer would mean that they will become the joint most successful team to compete in the World Cup along with Brazil. Although these two nations are the joint favourites to win the trophy this summer, they will have to keep an eye on nations such as France, Argentina and Spain who all have a very good chance of winning the trophy in the summer as well.

The majority of nations which will be competing this summer have all made at least one appearance at the World Cup. The only two nations which will be making their debut appearances is Iceland and Panama. The two nations managed to secure their place at the World Cup in the final game of their respective groups. Iceland managed a fairly comfortable 2-0 win against Kosovo, whilst Panama scored an 88th minute winner against Costa Rica to qualify from their group. This year’s tournament is one of the lowest when it comes to debut teams, with only the 1950, 2010 and 2014 introducing fewer teams. However it is very likely that this will chance in 2028 as the World Cup will introduce 16 more teams, bringing the total number of teams in the World Cup finals up to 48. This move is slight controversioal, but it gives the fans even more football games to enjoy.

Some of the teams featured here should come as no surprise, but there might be some nations on here which might surprise you.

The cost of being a football fan

Throughout the history of top division football in England twenty four teams have managed to get their hands on the first division trophy at least once. Of those twenty four teams, six of those have managed to win the Premier League trophy – Arsenal, Blackburn Rovers, Chelsea, Leicester City, Manchester City and Manchester United. At the start of the season, the Betfair English Premier League odds suggested that two times Premier League champions Manchester City would end up lifting the prestigious trophy in May. This prediction ended up being correct as the Pep Guardiola led side managed to storm the league, breaking multiple records along the way and on course to break the all-time Premier League point total record, most wins, most goals and the biggest title-winning margin.

There’s no doubt that this season has been an enjoyable one for City fans as they’ve seen their team destroy every team they’ve come up against and broken multiple record in the process. Other teams in the league may not have lived up to the expectations which were expected of them, but there is no doubt that fans have seen moments of brilliance when they’ve watched their team over the years and been entertained in the process.

Thanks to the ever increasing amount of money which is being invested in football and the Premier League, clubs no longer rely on match-day revenue as their primary source of income. Despite this, clubs are still trying to find ways of getting more and more people into their stadium, usually by offering cheaper tickets to local fans or by reducing season ticket prices to some fans in order to create a better atmosphere in the stadium. The majority of the fans who end up buying season tickets every season are usually the most passionate fans who invest a significant amount of money into the club so they can watch their team live. The season ticket is usually the biggest upfront cost for any fan of a Premier League club, but there are other expenditures which fans will make throughout the season. For example, it is likely that the majority of fans will buy some food and a drink during the game. Have a look at this infographic which breaks down what fans will spend their money on throughout the season, and the average amount of money a fan will have to splash out during a Premier League season.
