Adebayor looked on his way out of City last weekend and maybe it was the prospect of facing his old club that has kick-started his season. He has struggled to get into a star studded first team at City but he impressed midweek.
He is not an outcast and he has shown glimpses of good form when he has played thus far. Arsene Wenger sold the striker to City for £25 million and after his hat-trick against Lech Poznan in the Europa League, he looks likely to start the game.
He is 5/1 to score the first goal and 33/1 to score a hat-trick against his former club.
He enraged the Gooners last year, he ran the length of the pitch to celebrate in-front of them at Eastlands. He has never run so fast in his life, he followed that up by scraping his studs against his ex-team-mate Van Persie's face.
He did not endear himself to his old team-mates and you can back over 6 cards tomorrow at 3/1 in what could be a very feisty affair.
Man City have already disposed of the champions Chelsea at Eastlands and they will be desperate to impress in-front of the Sky cameras and prove to the red half of Manchester that they are Chelsea's main danger.
I think the 6/4 on offer for Manchester City to beat Arsenal is massive. Arsenal have been inconsistent this season, they were defeated at home by the impressive West Brom and they are not exactly Premier League heavyweights. They took apart Blackpool but they face a City side that rested some of their first team midweek.
City are very strong on the ball and with the likes of De Jong and Yaya Toure in midfield, they can out muscle Arsenal in the middle and stop the Gunners playing their pretty flowing football.
Arsenal struggle against Chelsea because of the Blues power on and off the ball, City play similar football and they can defeat Arsenal as they play a similar style. If you fancy an upset, Arsenal are 2/1 to win and the draw is the same price.
We have a cracking Match Winner on offer, there has been 3 goals or more in the last four matches between these two at the City of Manchester Stadium. You can back 3 goals or more at Evens, 4 goals or more at 5/2 and 5 goals or more at 6/1.
Rather than backing the traditional total match goals over/under markets, I would take advantage of these enhanced Match Winner prices and back 3 goals or more at Evens. Both teams have the necessary firepower and it is important to remember a certain 'Carlos Tevez'.
Tevez is in red hot form, he has scored twenty-eight times in his last thirty-one Premier League outings.
He is arguably the reason why the relationship between Sir Alex Ferguson and Rooney has soured. He looked immense at Man United but Sir Alex was not willing to pay the transfer fee to keep him playing for the Red Devils. Since Tevez left United for City, the revolution at City has really taken shape.
