Manchester City vs Arsenal Predictions
The Sky Blues title hopes dealt a blow when they were beaten by Newcastle United 1-2 this Tuesday. The gap with Liverpool could have been wider, but thanks to a Harry Maguire goal helped Leicester to snatch a 1-1 draw at the Anfield.
Guardiola’s men still trail Jurgen Klopp’s team by 5 points and there emerged another heated race with Tottenham barging in from behind at a 3 point gap. The current scenario makes this clash extremely important for the team in sky blue and they cannot afford to drop points this Sunday.
Meantime, Arsenal had to sweat hard to beat Cardiff at their home turf this midweek. The three points helped them move up to fourth in the table; thanks to Bournemouth’s thumping 4-0 win against Chelsea.
However, the race for fourth spot is still tight, as both Blues and Manchester United sit at a 2 point gap.
