The odds of Man City winning the 2017/18 Premier League title have plummeted down to 1.20, with Man Utd on 9.00 and Tottenham at 15.00. Winning nine in a row and scoring 35 goals in 10 league games will do that for a team.
Pep Guardiola finally seems to have the team playing like he wants them to, having withered away in the title race last autumn. On Sunday, Man City will aim for a better score-line than the 2-1 result they secured at the Etihad from this corresponding fixture last season.
Man City’s title bid was hindered by their lacklustre home form in the previous campaign. Now, though, the Citizens have scored 21 goals in just five games for an average of 4.20 every time they take the field.
And it’s the Man City midfielders who are driving the success. Fernandinho is stationed as the holding midfielder, while Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva are firmly entrenched as the first choice creative midfielders ahead of the Brazilian anchorman.
Having that base has given Guardiola to rotate through his attack, giving minutes to Sergio Agüero, Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sané, Raheem Sterling, and Bernardo Silva. Pep just keeps on rotating his attackers and yet they all they do is score.

A 2-1 defeat at Watford halted the momentum of two consecutive league victories for Arsenal. However, the Gunners were able to start firing again after meeting a hapless Everton who are now firm relegation candidates.
After dispatching the 10-man Toffees, Arsenal then came back from behind to win 2-1 against Swansea City. Those points could prove all the more valuable considering Arsenal are now faced with Man City away and Tottenham Hotspur at home.
For Arsenal, there continued vulnerability relates to their solidarity in defence and the strength of their midfield. On Sunday, Arsène Wenger will have to select his five-man without the injured Shkodran Mustafi and possibly the banged-up Sead Kolašinac.
Swansea were gifted opportunities against the three-man centre-back partnership of Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, and Per Mertesacker. From that trio, Mertesacker was easily the worst and made a string of errors.
Arsenal cannot be irresponsible in defence, but they must also realise that goals will be needed against City. West Brom managed to snatch two goals last weekend, so the onus will be on Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Özil, and Alexandre Lacazette to deliver the goods.
Man City have strengthened their home form this season and will not have to play until Sunday after their Wednesday night Champions League match, thus giving them additional rest. Going against Pep’s men feels unthinkable, given their astonishing form.
Goals could also be the order of the day in this encounter, which delivered three in a campaign were not as effective as they are. Man City are available at 2.25 odds for scoring over 2.5 goals, and this seems like a decent price because Arsenal could give up if the going gets tough.
