Manchester City vs Arsenal Preview

Manchester City vs Arsenal

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Etihad Stadium

Date: 5th November 2017

Kick-off time – 14:15 GMT

Pep Guardiola will feel he is getting close to making Manchester City his dream team as he only needs the trophies to start coming in to show for all of their efforts.

The Cityzens have won 14 of their 16 competitive games this season and with the way they defeated Napoli over two legs, it seems as though nobody is going to be able stop them from going all the way and win all four competitions this season.

They are yet to be defeated this season but they come up against an Arsenal side that seem to be their bogey team as they Gunners have only lost once in their last 9 meetings together.

With a team packed full with quality in all positions, they are arguably favourites to win all competitions that they are competing in this season.

There is so much frustration among Arsenal supporters which is understandable as their team continues to fall short of the required standard to win the league.

Last season they finished outside the top four for the first time in 20 years and with the competition for the top four as intense as ever this season there is a genuine fear that they will still not make it.

The Gunners will be looking at the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez to help them punish City’s defence that has conceded two goals in their last two games.
