Premier League games don’t come any bigger than Sunday’s clash between Manchester City and Arsenal, with the Gunners having the chance to go four points clear of their opponents and they also boast a superior goal difference. It’s well within the capabilities of Mikel Arteta’s side to claim a victory at the Etihad Stadium.

After all, there have been nine wins and two draws from fourteen away games, with thirty-four goals and just eleven conceded. This miserly defence will be severely tested by Manchester City, although Gabriel and William Saliba can lay claim to being the best central defensive pairing in the top flight.

In the past ten Arsenal matches, there have been nine victories and the only reverse came away at Porto in the Champions League. There were stunning 6-0 and 5-0 victories away to West Ham and Burnley respectively, with the team also showing their mettle to overcome Porto at the Emirates Stadium and eventually going through on penalty kicks.

However, a trip to the Etihad Stadium is a tough assignment and arguably the most difficult fixture in the world. Ederson is a big miss in goal and there will be a concern over the fitness of Kyle Walker, although there hasn’t been a defeat in any competition since early December when Aston Villa were able to find a way to win.

Guardiola will hope that his team take a decisive step towards another league title and it would be their fourth consecutive success in the Premier League. They were held to that 1-1 draw at Anfield and there was also the same scoreline that occurred against Chelsea to illustrate that the home team are not absolute bankers to win.
