Preview

Two teams going in opposite directions. Arsenal seemingly can’t buy a win, while City are on an 8 match unbeaten run.

It will be a fun game for the Pep v Arteta factor and should be a great match.

Team News

Man City’s Gabriel Jesus is the only player in doubt for this one.

Arsenal will see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang be day of decision. As will Thomas Partey. Granit Xhaka is also suspended.

Prediction

City’s midfield will be the difference.

Manchester City 1-0 Arsenal
