Sixth placed Arsenal face Manchester City again on Thursday and bet365 are long odds-on about the Gunners ending their Premier League campaign in that same position come the end of the season.
The Citizens start the game 13 clear of their nearest rival and bet365 rate the runaway leaders at 8/11 to land the title by a record margin of 19 points or more.
bet365’s Steve Freeth “These two were separated by just 3 points last season and in 2015/16 Arsenal finished above Man City.
“However, if Pep’s side win at the Emirates then the gap will be an incredible 30 points after 28 games and that’s why the Gunners are 1/4 to finish in 6th.”
bet365 have already opened the betting on next season’s title race with the blue side of Manchester at 8/13 and Arsenal quoted at 20/1.
