However, City’s played two fewer matches than the current leaders and can effectively seize control of the Premier League title race and “three-peat” possibilities by winning this one at home.

That’s because City holds the advantage in goal difference and has scored several more goals, and those figures would go up at least by one with the projected win at the Etihad.


The next tiebreaker is head-to-head points, which Man City would have with a win (or a draw, but that changes the math plenty). Failing that, it’s away goals head-to-head. City has one. Arsenal gets their number on the 26th.

Here’s what you need for Manchester City vs Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.

Man City v Arsenal: What has been said?

The Gunners could get beaten by ‘three or four goals’ against City following their ’embarrassing’ display against Southampton.

Speaking on talkSPORT’s Gameday Phone-In, Gabby Agbonlahor said: “First of all, the huddle was embarrassing.

“Zinchenko, concentrate on your game. Doing the huddle for the cameras, you don’t follow your runners, the set piece for the third goal you don’t follow your man and concede.

“That, for a start, was embarrassing.

“For me, Rob Holding is a Championship defender. Not good enough to be third choice at a team who want to win the title.

“Since Saliba has been injured they’ve conceded nine goals in five games – three draws in a row, that’s not championship form.

“Vieira is not good enough. He looked lost – not good enough, Gabriel looks shaky and has got mistake in him, Jesus’s finishing was shocking, Thomas Partey was poor too, giving easy passes away.

“I think that Man City will put three or four past this Arsenal team on Wednesday, I really do.
