Arsenal can prove they are ready to go one better in the title race as they host Man City in a huge Premier League clash on Sunday.
The Gunners fell away in the final weeks of last season having looked so strong for the majority of the campaign, with Pep Guardiola’s side relentless in the run-in on their way to making it a treble-winning campaign.
It has been an unbeaten start to the Premier League for Arsenal this season, but performances have not been consistent and the display in the midweek defeat to Lens in the Champions League will have concerned Mikel Arteta.
City had to work before eventually picking up a win over RB Leipzig to ensure they did not fall to three consecutive defeats. They too have not been at their free-flowing best recently, with Wolves beating them last weekend to end City’s perfect start in the Premier League.
Arsenal vs Man City team news
Bukayo Saka is in contention for Arsenal, after limping off in the first-half of the defeat to Lens. Should he miss out, Fabio Vieira will likely start in his place, with Mikel Arteta up to now reluctant to use Reiss Nelson on the right wing.
Leandro Trossard is now fit and available and Thomas Partey could be in contention after making the bench in France, but Gabriel Martinelli is running out of time to prove his fitness.
Rodri is out for Man City as he serves the final match of his domestic ban, with Pep Guardiola faced with a decision in midfield. Rico Lewis shone in that position against Leipzig and could get the nod alongside Mateo Kovacic.
Bernardo Silva is now available for the City boss, meaning Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones are currently the only injury absentees.
Arsenal vs Man City prediction
Arsenal’s last victory over Man City in the Premier League came eight years ago, with Guardiola’s side on a 12-match winning run against the Gunners in the League.
Neither side has been at their best in recent weeks, while Arsenal go into this with injury problems to contend with at the worst possible time.
The Gunners have looked vulnerable in defence at times this season, particularly at home, and City can take full advantage to continue their dominance of this fixture.
Arsenal vs Manchester City score prediction
Despite Arsenal’s significant improvements in recent seasons, they are yet to really test Man City when the sides go head-to-head. The treble winners have won eight of their last nine meetings with the Gunners, including two emphatic victories last season – 4-1 at the Etihad and 3-1 at the Emirates.
The potential absence of Saka, alongside the already missing Martinelli, could prove pivotal for the Gunners, while Rodri’s suspension will give hope to Arteta’s men.
However, Man City are so comfortable on the big stage, and it would hardly be surprising to see them get a statement win at the Emirates on Sunday. No matter how strong Arsenal seem to be, the Premier League and European champions always appear to be that one step ahead.
Prediction: Arsenal 1-3 Man City
