Arsenal vs Man City likely line-ups

We'll update this closer to the match.

Who will win Arsenal vs Manchester City?

Manchester City's last 10 Premier League matches have been about as dominant as you can get. 30 points from 30, 31 goals scored and only 7 conceded. They also boast bags of 7, 6 and 4 in that run.

Arsenal are also on a winning streak, having won 4 on the bounce and scoring 14 times with only 1 goal conceded, so this points to a strong contest between 2 sides in terrific form.

Manchester City haven't lost to Arsenal in a Premier League fixture since December of 2015, and as well as the Gunners are going at present, Manchester City are probably the best team in the world, with the best manager in the world, playing their very best football.

They look likely to claim another scalp and continue to run away with another Premier League title.
