Good afternoon everyone and welcome to Manchester City v Arsenal – LIVE and brought to you by Arsenal’s official car and van rental partner Europcar!
The Gunners are out to keep laying claim to that 2nd spot today, but Manchester City are embroiled in the fight for fourth with rivals Manchester United, so this is a huge game for both sides.
Danny Welbeck came off the bench to hit the winner as Wenger’s men beat Norwich 1-0 last week – could he be the difference today? Meanwhile, Mesut Ozil is two assists short of equaling Thierry Henry’s Premier League season record.
Kelechi Iheanacho’s brace went in vain last week as City were condemned to a 4-2 defeat to Southampton, but Pellegrini’s men have only been beaten once in their last 5 games.
Sergio Aguero continued his European goal drought against Real Madrid on Wednesday, and Arsenal will be hoping the lack of goals continues into the Premier League this weekend. But Arsenal are on a run of three consecutive clean sheets and won’t surrender that without a fight.
