Manchester City against Arsenal is by far the glitziest fixture of the weekend and for that reason Ladbrokes are letting their hair down by boosting two of the Premier League’s most potent forces to score first.
There are however no prizes for guessing which pair of individuals we are referring too….
Sergio Aguero to score first, boosted from 7/2 out to 9/2
They’ll be no more welcome sight for City fans than their top scorer making his first Premier League start since being forced out of the game against Everton on December 6th.
Aguero had clocked up a staggering 19 goals from his 23 appearances in all competitions up until that point, but after a cameo from the bench last time out, he’ll be raring to add to that tally with Arsenal in town.
The Argentine wonder got the ball rolling against the Gunners in the return fixture back in September too.
Alexis Sanchez to score first, boosted from 6/1 out to 7/1
Unlike his South American counterpart there will be absolutely no ring-rustiness for the insatiable Sanchez who just keeps banging them in for his new club.
The Chilean is just a goal shy of Aguero’s seasonal tally so far and has added three more in his last two games.
His double against Stoke last time out displayed finishing of the highest calibre and Sanchez also marked the reverse fixture with a quite magnificent goal in the 2-2 draw at the Emirates.
