Arsenal take on Manchester City at the Emirates this evening. Here is a preview with team news, line-ups and predicted score
Arsenal will be out for revenge following their Carabao Cup disappointment when they take on Manchester City for the second time in five days at the Emirates this evening.
City lifted this seasons first piece of silverware with a 3-0 victory at Wembley on Sunday afternoon thanks to goals from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva.
The result has pilled the pressure on Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal boss knows his side must respond with a win tonight if they’re to stand any chance of getting themselves back in the race for the top four.
The Gunners currently sit sixth in the table and 10 points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham so you’d be better off checking the Grand National Betting 2018 and backing a random horse than tipping Arsenal to finish fourth if they lose tonight.
Pep Guardiola’s side can extend their advantage at the top of the table to a whopping 16 points with a win this evening and that would put them to within touching distance of the title with just 10 games remaining.
City have already arrived in London ahead of the game and the two clubs say the match will go ahead but conditions will continue to be assessed due to heavy snowfall all across the country.
Arsenal will be without Nacho Monreal as the full-back has been ruled out with a back injury that he sustained at the weekend. Sead Kolasinac is in-line for a recall at left-back.
Alexandre Lacazette remains on the sidelines following knee surgery but Henrikh Mkhitaryan is available again after being cup tied at the weekend.
City are set to be without Raheem Sterling as he’s still nursing a hamstring injury while Fernandinho is also ruled out after being forced off with his own hamstring complaint at Wembley.
Fabian Delph serves the final game of his three-match ban while Benjamin Mendy is a long-term absentee.
Arsenal 1-2 Man City: Arsenal have won just two of their last 11 league meetings with City and they will have to play a lot better than they did on Sunday to improve upon that record. The Gunners are usually solid at the Emirates and I do think this will be a closer game than it was in the cup final but City are just too strong right now so I’m backing an away win.
