Manchester City: Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths

  • The city boasts one of the Strongest squads in the Premier League. After players like Fernandinho, Raheem Sterling, and Gabriel Jesus left, the attack and the midfield were reinforced with the additions of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund and Kalvin Phillips from Leeds United.

Weakness

  • There aren’t many weaknesses in the Man City team. To mention one, this season Man City has over-relied on Haaland for goals. The forward has scored close to 40% of the goals for City. Erling Haaland, a genuine No. 9, is one of Manchester City’s recent acquisitions, and his injury might jeopardize the season. The defenders have continued to be prone to injuries for Manchester City, and their track record is not much better.

Arsenal: Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths

  • This season, Arsenal has strengthened its squad and with Gabriel Jesus’ arrival, they have the best striker they have had for a long time.
  • The form of key players like Martinelli, Saka, and Odegaard, is evident in the rising metrics like shots creation and goal per match.
  • Defensive reinforcements like Zinchenko and Saliba have strengthened their defense.

Weakness

  • Lack of central midfield options and the inconsistent form of Granit Xhaka. Thomas Partey has been plagued with injury this season.
  • Arteta has to constantly tweak his tactics to aid its midfield.

Who will win Premier League Predictions?

Arsenal looks good to win the Premier League this season with steady performances, particularly against the top 10 teams. With a game heavily loaded with possession dominance and short passes supported by solid conversion rates early in the game, Arsenal has performed consistently through the season so far.

Why is Manchester City Struggling?

  • In the 2021-22 Season, Manchester City conceded a total of 26 Goals. In 2020-21, it was 32 goals. At the current rate, Man City will end the season with a massive 38 goals conceded
  • As a consequence, Man City’s win rate is at 66%, much lower than in 2020-21 when it was 71%, and 2021-22 when it was 76%.
  • Manchester City is ranked 1st on First Half Goal difference but 4th on Second Half Goal difference.
  • City’s defense has been inconsistent from the start of this season. Joao Cancelo’s stats dipped significantly. In the Carabao Cup Quarter-Final match against Southampton, he looked completely out of touch. Kyle Walker has also looked ineffective this season. Guardiola is yet to figure out the best rotation policy for his side’s defense.
  • The over-dependency on Erling Haaland could be another reason for City’s struggle. The prolific Norwegian striker has already added 21 goals to his name. However, he went goalless in the last three matches. After a disappointing loss to Man United, Guardiola admitted that the Citizens should get Haaland more involved. The league’s top-scorer managed just 19 touches at Old Trafford.

Man City can be expected to go all guns blazing in the attack. But the defense still remains the main area of concern for the defending champions.

Can Arsenal win the Premier League?

The Arsenal fans have all the reasons to feel optimistic about their side clinching the Premier League title this year. The Gunners have been absolutely fantastic this season. They seem unstoppable at the moment. Neither the international break nor Gabriel Jesus’ injury could halt their winning momentum. Arteta’s men have already beaten teams like Tottenham (twice), Chelsea, and Liverpool. However, none of these sides are in the top 4 currently. The upcoming matches, especially against both Manchester City would be another litmus test for Arsenal

Although Arsenal has started looking quite comfortable at the top, there is a long way to go and the Gunners are aware of the challenges. If City fails to challenge their position, the Gunners are expected to face tough competition from Man United. But it is safe to say that Arteta and his young steam and looking very strong in the title race at the moment.
