Arsenal face a major challenge later today, as the Gunners visit reigning champions Manchester City. The Citizens have slipped up in a number of games in recent months which has saw them fall five points behind league leaders Liverpool.

City may have slipped up on the odd occasion this season, but they are still formidable opponents. The fact that the Citizens cannot afford to take their foot of the gas makes the task even harder for Arsenal.

Manchester City have turned the Etihad Stadium into a fortress in recent season. The Citizens are currently on a run of 12 wins from their last 13 home games in the Premier League.

On Sunday, Arsenal face a tough trip to the Etihad Stadium to face reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.

Manchester City have the chance to cut the gap on league leaders Liverpool to just two points, with the Reds playing on Monday night at West Ham.

The Citizens head into this game on the back of a galling 2-1 defeat at Newcastle on Tuesday night. The defeat will have to go down as a missed opportunity for Pep Guardiola’s team. The loss also ended a run of eight straight wins for City in all competitions.
