Arsenal vs. Manchester City - English Premier League matchup - Favourite to win, odds and previewOne of the biggest games of the week will be played on Monday in London when Arsenal host Manchester City in the 17th round of the English Premier League.

Arsenal are currently second in the standings with 33 points, 2 points behind Leicester City and one point ahead of Manchester City.

This is one of those games that could make a big impact on the season. Even though Leicester City have taken the English league by storm, the only true favourites to win the premiership, according to the odds, are Manchester City and Arsenal.

Here are the current odds to win the title:

Man City: 5/4
Arsenal: 7/4
Man Utd: 9/1
Leicester: 16/1
Liverpool: 20/1

After spectacularly eliminating Olympiakos in the Champions League by beating them 3-0 away at Piraeus, the Gunners continued their winning momentum with a 2-0 win away at Villa Park. Arsenal have a few injuries at the moment (Cazorla, Sanchez, Sturridge etc.), but the team is playing well. Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud are playing exceptionally well.

Manchester City have also won their last two games. In the Champions League they beat Borussia Monchengladbach 4-2 at home and they followed that with another home victory vs. Swansea 2-1. City are in fine form this season, but this is not the same City as from a couple of years ago when they were terrorizing Premier League defences.

The odds for the game on Monday are:

Arsenal: 11/8
Draw: 12/5
Man City: 19/10

Arsenal are the slight favourites to win at home.


Could this be Arsenal's year? It is games like these that are so crucial on a title winning quest.

Will City unleash their 'inner dragon' and take charge of the league race as many expect them to?


Odds to score on Monday:

Olivier Giroud: 11/10
Sergio Aguero: 11/10
Wilfried Bony: 7/5
Theo Walcott: 7/4
