The best way to decide a title is on the pitch, and that’s exactly what Arsenal and Manchester City will contest as they meet at the Emirates on Wednesday for the first of their two Premier League clashes this season.
Mikel Arteta and Pep Guardiola have traded slips in recent weeks, and the gap now sits at three points between leaders Arsenal and second-place Man City, with the Gunners also holding a game in hand. Now, a slip could prove deadly as three points for either side could provide a massive swing in the title race.
For Man City particularly, the visitors can go top of the table on goal difference with a win at Arsenal. While the Gunners are unbeaten at home this season in league play amidst their Emirates fortress, but it hasn’t been something to phase Man City, who have won 13 of their last 14 against Arsenal in all competitions.
Arteta will be hoping to improve his fortunes against his old mentor Pep Guardiola, winning just one of six against his old boss to start his career. Arteta was an assistant manager at Man City prior to his hire at Arsenal, learning the coaching ropes under today’s opponent.
