Manchester City host Arsenal at the Etihad today in a critical match in the race for the top four. With just one more match remaining after this one, and each point is going to be necessary. As it stands, City are 3 points behind Arsenal, but only 1 point ahead of United, who will have a game in hand after today. Given recent fixtures for City, fans will be rightly nervous about this one. But we never do anything the easy way anyways, do we?
