You would normally consider this to be a big top-of-the-table clash, but a look at the tables shows the harsh reality.
The currently ever-successful (and you get the feeling rather boring) Manchester City are leading the Premier League by a clear 13 points, and they are ahead of sixth-place Arsenal by an astonishing 27 points. Mind you, that’s the least of the Gunners’ problems, what with them being 8 points off a spot in Europe. Thus you get the feeling the Arsene Wenger is the one who needs the points more going into this game.
Arsenal v Manchester City is on Sky Premier League and Sky Main Event at 19.00 (kick-off 19.45).
