A win for Arsenal would be a big boost for the Gunners in their quest to finally lay their hands on the EPL title since they last won in 2004

The Premier League title race takes center stage this Sunday as Arsenal travel to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City.

This crucial clash could be a defining moment in the season for both sides as the battle for who will end up as the English Premier League title winner heats up.

A Match with Huge Implications

This is a pivotal match for both Arsenal and Man City; a win or defeat for either side and they could slip down the pecking order, with Liverpool just below the Gunners on goal difference.

A win for Arsenal would grant them immense momentum, ensuring they stay on top, heading into the final stretch of the season.

Last season's defeat at the Etihad dampened Arsenal's title dreams, but the squad have shown more composure in big games this season, thanks to summer signings Declan Rice and Kai Havertz.

Injury Concerns

Both teams have injury worries coming out of the international break.

Man City: Kyle Walker and John Stones are doubtful, while Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish are being monitored.

Arsenal: Gabriel Martinelli, a key player from the first meeting, is a major doubt. Bukayo Saka is expected to recover from a minor injury.


The Etihad has historically been a graveyard for Arsenal's title ambitions, yet you cannot write off Arsenal. While Man City remains a formidable force, the Gunners have a chance to exploit gaps in Pep Guardiola's team.

Here's what to expect

A high-stakes encounter with both teams desperate for points.

Arsenal's impressive build-up play could create opportunities against a slightly shaky City defense.

The absence of Martinelli could be a significant blow for Arsenal.
