Sagna predicts Man City vs Arsenal clash


Former France defender, Bacary Sagna, has predicted this weekend’s Premier League top-of-the-table clash between Manchester City and Arsenal.

Sagna, who played for the two clubs during his career, is expecting it to end in a draw.

Arsenal currently sit top of the table ahead of Liverpool on goal difference.

However, City can leapfrog the Gunners if they win at the Etihad on Sunday.

Before this campaign, Arsenal had lost 12 league matches in a row against City. But Mikel Arteta’s men ended their hoodoo against Pep Guardiola’s side with a 1-0 win at home in October.

When asked for his prediction, Sagna told Paddy Power: “I can see Manchester City and Arsenal drawing at the Etihad.

“At home, Man City can be exposed because they attack so much and leave themselves open to the counterattack and we know how fast Arsenal’s players are.

“It’s a strength to attack so much because they can put any team under pressure, but Arsenal can also put pressure on teams, so I think it will be a draw.”
