Arsenal v Manchester ‘Citeh
Dear Gunners, it’s nice to be able to anticipate the electric game that will be on Monday… * hears sizzles *
Before I go on, please familiarize yourselves with the club’s safety measures for the match day here.
Now, let’s talk about our opponent a little:
Manchester City have won 2, lost 2 and drawn one of their last 5 matches. Their top five performing players are Yaya Toure, Kolarov, Aguero, Fernandinho and Vincent Kompany. Manchester City are 11/8 favourites for the title although many say this is Arsenal’s best chance to win the title. We’ll see.

Arsenal’s last meeting with Manuel Pellegrini’s side saw them record an impressive 2-0 win at Etihad Stadium in January, and Wenger believes that victory will give his side confidence going into Monday’s game.
“It was a needed step for our team,” he said. “It was not enough, but it was the first step which was certainly vital to strengthen the belief of our team.
“When you have never done it, people can tell you ‘you aren’t good enough, you aren’t good enough’ but when you have done it, you know you can do it and that strengthens you. Of course it is important.”
