Arsenal vs Manchester City
Arsenal and Manchester City will go head-to-head on Sunday in what is a must-win tie for both sides.
Man City are currently 3rd in the Premier League and 14 points adrift of table-topping Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp’s side will play host to bottom of the table Watford on Saturday. Meaning that when City kick-off at the Emirates, there is a good chance the Sky Blues will be 17 points off top spot.
So, anything but a win over Arsenal would likely be detrimental to City’s slim title hopes.
As for Arsenal, they have amassed just one league win in their last five PL outings and are seven points adrift of a Champions League place.
