Last time these two sides met it finished 2-1 to Manchester City.
Both teams crashed out the Champions League and are still looking for a win. Manchester City showed they are still in the fight with a draw to Liverpool.
Whereas Arsenal continue with their poor form and lost to West Brom.
The race for top 4 is very much alive between six teams, Manchester United and Tottenham won this weekend putting pressure on the other teams. Arsenal have never finished below the top 4 during Arsène Wenger’s reign.
They are now five points behind fourth-placed Liverpool in fifth, although with a game in hand. Pep Guardiola first season in the premier league shows promise but he will want to finish as high as possible.
City are now two points behind second-placed Tottenham, with Liverpool a point further back in fourth. Coming after international break may help both teams, that’s if all their players come back fit.
This is a crucial period for both teams and winning games will decide their top four status.
Arsenal need to bounce back with a win and try and save their season. Man City have tough fixtures coming up and need to perform well.
