Premier League!! Arsenal V Manchester City On Sunday 4PM by Techpady: 5:28pm On Apr 01, 2017


The race for the top four will take another pivotal turn on Sunday as Arsenal host Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium.

The hosts have slipped down to sixth place courtesy of a poor run of form before the international break, while Man City sit seven points better off in third.

This is surely the lowest point yet ofWenger’s long reign. Pressure on him to stand down at the end of the season has reached unprecedented levels, and it seems for the first time as if the majority of the Arsenal fans are now in the ‘Wenger Out’ camp.

TheGunnershave suffered four defeats in their last five Premier League games – their worst ever run of form underWenger– and in the meantime they were also humiliated on the European stage by a 10-2 aggregate loss at the hands ofBayern Munich.

Such form has seen them slump to sixth in the table – only the second time in Premier League history that they have been outside the top five in April – and just as damagingly has created a civil war of sorts amongst supporters.

City,however, come into this weekend’s match in much better shape than their hosts and, while Guardiola has said for some time that Chelsea are out of reach, second place is still very much in their sights with a two-point gap separating them from Tottenham Hotspur.

Back-to-back draws – the last of which was a breathless and frantic stalemate with Liverpool before the international break – have harmed their chances, though, and the fixture list does not make particularly good reading over the closing stages of the campaign.


After Sunday’s trip to the Emirates Stadiumthey will return to London on Wednesday to face the runaway league leaders Chelsea, while they must also take on Manchester United before the season is over– not forgetting their continued participation in the FA Cup.

Team News-

Arsenalcould finally welcomeOzilback into the starting XI following a six-week spell on the sidelines.

However, the Gunners do have injury concerns elsewhere, withPetr Cechruled out due to a calf injury andLucas Perezunavailable because of a thigh problem.

CitytrioKevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Pablo Zabaletaall suffered injury scares during the international break but have recovered in time for the weekend and should be available for selection.

Bacary Sagnahas also overcome a groin strain, leaving long-term absentees Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus as Guardiola’s only injury concerns.

Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Ospina; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Xhaka, Elneny, Ramsey, Ozil, Sanchez; Giroud
Man City possible starting lineup:
Caballero; Fernandinho, Stones, Otamendi, Clichy; Sterling, De Bruyne, Toure, Silva, Sane; Aguero
