Man City vs Arsenal live score, result, stats, updates, lineups from Premier League title race match

ETIHAD STADIUM, MANCHESTER — Champions Manchester City host Arsenal on what could prove to be a pivotal day in the Premier League title race.

The Gunners began Sunday at the top of the table but it will be second-versus-third at kickoff in Manchester if Liverpool avoid defeat at home to Brighton & Hove Albion in the day’s earlier match.

If this one ends in a draw like City’s trip to Anfield prior to the international break, it could hand Jurgen Klopp’s side valuable impetus in the three-way battle for glory. If either of Pep Guardiola or Mikel Arteta’s sides are victorious, they will feel they hold a key advantage.

Arsenal were blown away 4-1 in this fixture last term, a result that all but confirmed City’s third successive Premier League title. However, they won this season’s meeting at Emirates Stadium 1-0 to record a first league success against City since December 2015.
