Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Etihad Stadium when Manchester City and Arsenal face each other on day 17 of the new Premier League campaign. The Citizens bounced back from a heartbreaking loss to Leicester City, with the team beating Watford on home soil in midweek, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Sunday’s football match against Arsenal. Anyhow, Pep Guardiola’s men are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they will find the net in the derby. The Gunners, on the other hand, recorded three wins in previous four league fixtures, but Everton proved to be a big catch for the capital club on Tuesday evening. Arsene Wenger’s troops aim to make amends for the 2-1 loss to Ronald Koeman’s charges and considering that Alexis Sanchez has been impressive in front of goal this season, we are positive that the Gunners will score in the Etihad Stadium showdown.
Highlighted Player (Leroy Sane):
Leroy Sane began his senior career at Schalke 04. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as attacking midfielder as well, made his debut for die Knappen on 20 April, 2014 against Stuttgart. Sane came as a substitute in the second half of the match, replacing Max Mayer 13 minutes before the final whistle. He scored 11 goals in 47 league appearances for Schalke and on 2 August, 2016 he signed a deal with big-spending Premier League side Manchester City. The former Schalke footballer joined the Citizens on a five-year deal for a fee of £37 million. Sane was born in Essen on 11 January, 1996, but his father is Senegalese. Souleymane Sane used to play for the Senegalese national football team in the past, while his mother Regina Weber was a rhythmic gymnast. Speaking of his international career, Leroy Sane has 6 caps for Germany U21 and he made his debut for the senior team on 13 November, 2015 in a 2-0 loss to France.
Highlighted Team (Arsenal):
Arsenal are regarded as one of the best English teams. The Gunners have won 12 FA Cup trophies, 13 league titles and two League Cups, but they have yet to lift the Champions League trophy. Arsene Wenger’s team were on the verge of beating Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006, but they eventually failed to win the prestigious title. Arsenal used to play their homes at Highbury, but in 2006 they moved to the Emirates Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 60,260. The Gunners won their last Premier League trophy back in 2004, with the capital club going through the season without a single loss. The likes of Thierry Henry, Denis Bergkamp and Robert Pires were part of the team back then, but Arsenal have not won the league trophy ever since. Arsenal was founded by Woolwich munitions workers as Dial Square back in 1886. It is well known that Tottenham Hotspur are Arsenal’s fiercest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals meet in the North London derby.
