Manchester City vs Arsenal – English Premier League – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Manchester City vs Arsenal

Manchester City vs Arsenal – Manchester City host Arsenal at the Etihad on 18th December, Sunday in a crucial English Premier League fixture. Just one point separate the two clubs – Arsenal are third in league standings with thirty four points while Manchester City are fourth in league standings with thirty three points.

Arsenal lost 2-1 to Everton in the midweek, thereby fluffing a chance to close the gap on league leaders Chelsea and will need to avoid a defeat today to continue their good patch of form on the domestic front.

Manchester City’s 2-0 win against Watford in the midweek, on the other hand, relieved some pressure of Pep Guardiola’s side which had suffered humiliating defeats at the hands of Chelsea and Leicester City in the preceding two matches.
