Manchester City host Arsenal at the Etihad on Wednesday night in a blockbuster game in the Premier League title race.

The two sides have been locked in an epic season-long battle to be crowned Champions of England and the two sides are currently only separated by five points.

However, with Pep Guardiola’s men in possession of two games in hand and with all the momentum having won their last six league games in a row, Arsenal will feel a win is a necessity if they are to win their first Premier League title since 2004.

Here is your briefing ahead of the mammoth showdown in Manchester.

Arsenal’s last win over Manchester City was the 2-1 win in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley six years ago – since then the Mancunians have won 15 games in a row against The Gunners.
