Sunday’s late Premier League kick-off sees Manchester City face 6th placed Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
With both sides engaged in the battle for top-four, this game presents a great opportunity for one side to take valuable points off a direct rival. Wenger’s side are six points behind fourth-placed Liverpool and they really can’t afford to lose, having been beaten in their last two Premier League outings.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are sitting slightly more comfortably than their top flight rivals. The Citizens have played 28 times so far this season, once more than their opponents, and are in third place.
With both sides needing three points from this fixture, it should be a hotly contested game. There are interesting individual battles all over the field and the winners of these duels could shape the outcome of this tie.
