Arsenal will look to bounce back from defeat last time out, as the Gunners visit top-four rivals Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.
City have been in relatively poor form of late, having recorded just one victory in their last four games in all competitions. However, that one win came in midweek in a 2-0 win over Watford, courtesy of strikes from Pablo Zabaleta and David Silva.
The win means that the Citizens are currently fourth in the Premier League table, a point behind the Gunners. Pep Guardiola’s side do not have a great recent home record in the top-flight, but they have suffered just one defeat in their last 11 games at the Etihad Stadium. .......Read more here.....
