Arsenal vs Manchester City Preview

Arsenal vs Manchester City

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Emirates Stadium

Date: 1st March 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

 

Wembley refused to be kind to the Gunners on Sunday and they now have a chance to redeem themselves at home – can they become the second team to beat Manchester City in the league this season?

It’s very unlikely with the kind of dismal showing they put on in their match on Sunday.

Arsenal lost their previous match before the Carabao Cup final 1-2 at home to Ostersunds and they need to end this losing streak soon enough.

They have won just two of their last seven games and are currently 6th in the league table, 10 points off the top four and they could miss playing in the Champions League again next season.

They have a good record at home with just one loss all season and 10 wins in 13 home games so far.

Manchester City have won their first trophy of the season and the Premier League title is another one that should come before the end of the season.

They have won 7 of their last 9 matches in all competitions, but they have been struggling away from home recently, failing to win any of their last three away games and they lost at Anfield earlier in the year.

They have goals in them and this game could be no different as there have been 21 goals scored in Arsenal’s last 4 home games and the Gunners’ have seen 16 goals scored in their last 4 games  against the top five teams at home.
