Arsenal are currently in a better place than earlier in the season when it comes to injuries, mainly because Vivienne Miedema made her return in the victory over Bristol City.

She has been out with an ACL injury since December 2022 and she is expected to get some more minutes against Man City. Having won their last two league games, Arsenal will hope they have put any poor form behind them.

Arsenal vs Man City score prediction

Arsenal are certainly the team with the most pedigree here but they are the team that has struggled more in the early stages of this very young WSL campaign.

Considering that Man City are. now without a key player in Greenwood, and the home advantage that Arsenal can boast, the Gunners may well continue their return to form here with a narrow win against this Man City side that looks set to be near the top for a lot of the season.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Man City
