Back Man City to steamroll Arsenal in EFL Cup tonight with huge 11/1 bet

The EFL Cup quarter-finals are our last football fix before Christmas and we could be in for a compelling one tonight.

Man City travel to North London to face an Arsenal side enduring run of form so awful some are whispering about relegation.

We’re backing Pep Guardiola’s men to pile more misery onto percentage-enthusiast Mikel Arteta, whose troops have lost four of their last seven games.

Arsenal vs Man City – Riyad Mahrez to score first and City to win with over 2.5 goals in the game – 11/1 (CLAIM HERE).

City haven’t lost in the EFL Cup since 2016.

And if georgraphy is your thing, then consider the fact City haven’t lost a match in the same competition in London since December 2003 — a 3-1 defeat to Tottenham with goals from Darren Anderton, Freddie Kanoute and Helder Postiga.

In recent years, it feels like we should have just renamed the EFL Cup the Man City Cup.

Meanwhile, the Gunners are desperately seeking a way out of their recent rut, after picking up just 14 points from 14 games in the league.

City are unbeaten in their last eight games and serial-winner Guardiola will see this competition as a perfect way to freshen up City’s packed trophy cabinet.

Riyad Mahrez has been in and out of Guardiola’s starting XI and frequently substituted but we’re backing him to star at the Emirates tonight after featuring in their previous EFL Cup games this season.
