Manchester City is looking to maintain their hopes of winning the Premier League title this season when they host Arsenal today at Al Ittihad Stadium in the 25th round of the Premier League.

Manchester City is the third on the Premier League table with 56 points behind Liverpool (61) and Tottenham (57), now Arsenal are in fifth place on the Premier League table, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, two points clear of sixth-placed Manchester United, now facing off against Manchester City after losing the first leg at home with a clean double.

Man City lost 1-0 at Newcastle United, while Arsenal beat Cardiff City with the same result.

The gunners are looking to take revenge from Manchester City after a 2-0 defeat in the first round, as well as three points to stay in the competition to qualify for the next Champions League.

Manchester City knows that the defeat in the match against Arsenal will make it much harder for their title to give Liverpool the opportunity to extend the gap to 8 points if the Reds win their match against West Ham United on Monday at London Stadium.

Facts to be viewed, Manchester City has won their last four games in a row vs Arsenal – that could also in Man City’s favor to do it again.

Once again Arsenal dreamed of winning the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season and was close to the competition with their opponent Chelsea.

The Gunners were better off than City that season and were the favorites to win the UEFA Champions League.

Things were going well for Theo Walcott, before Arsenal made one of their worst runs in years, losing two goals to Leroy Sani and Rahim Sterling.

Once again Arsenal’s papers began to fall after this loss, to get the team out of competition instead of the top four for the first time in many years.

Wenger’s leave

Just six days after the Wembley trio, Arsenal suffered a similar but repeated defeat, but worse in the 28th round of the English Premier League last season.

The bitterness of losing this time was that they were at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal stronghold, where he appeared in empty stands in protest against the conditions of the team.

The defeat was like the straw that broke the camel’s back, because of the way Arsenal played as if the players refused to play for Wenger.

Some went to conspiracy theory to overthrow the Frenchman, given the poor performance and manipulation of Leroy Sane, David Silva and Bernardo Silva with guns on their territory, as if a confrontation between City and one of the first division teams.

A few days after the defeat, Wenger announced his final departure from Arsenal after a lack of opportunity among the top four, with another defeat by Manchester City in a disaster for the London team.
