Manchester City v Arsenal Preview

It’s probably the biggest game of the Premier League this season as Manchester City take on Arsenal – which could possibly be the title decider. Things are moving in the right direction for Pep Guardiola’s men as they go looking for their first treble this season. Following their exploits in the UCL reaching the semi-finals, Manchester City eased past Sheffield united last weekend as they now face Manchester United in the FA Cup final. Having lost just one game in their last 20 matches in all competitions, they are on a phenomenal run that will take a lot to stop. Both sides now have their fate in their own hands ahead of this blockbuster game that could be goals galore given both Arsenal and Manchester City’s defensive woes and lack of clean sheets. There will be no room for sentiments at the touchline by Pep for his former understudy and moreover by Erling Haaland for that Arsenal defense who have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six matches.

Arteta on the other hand will be disappointed to have let points dropped recently having let a lead of two goals slip against both Liverpool and West Ham. The most recent encounter against Southampton saw the Gunners come back from a 3-1 deficit to earn a point with late goals by Odegaard and Saka. This means Arsenal are now winless in their last three matches ahead of their visit to Etihad which has historically been a haunting ground for the Gunners. Manchester City have won all 12 of their home games in 2023, scoring at least two goals in each barring the 1-0 win against Arteta’s men in the FA Cup. Arsenal however have the best away record in the division, having won 36 points in 16 games, conceding only on 13 occasions. Losses in each of their previous 11 Premier League encounters against the Cityzens doesn’t help the psychological factor and any similar result this time around may well mean more wait for the Gunners for the Premier League title.
