  • Gunners fear Man City has a quick start

    Arsenal fans always come to the Emirates Stadium full of hope, but that faith is often quickly extinguished when Manchester City come as a guest.

    The Citizens have opened the scoring in the first quarter of an hour in all five away Premier League games against Arsenal under Pep Guardiola, scoring in the first two minutes of each of the last two seasons.

    City also scored after three minutes in their League Cup quarter-final against Arsenal last season, winning 4-1.

  • Arteta is absent from Pep’s reunion

    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta will be hoping that the new year brings new luck when his side take on Manchester City.

    The Gunners have lost their last nine matches to the defending Premier League champions, and were beaten 5-0 in the reverse fixture in August.

    However, if the Londoner were to somehow take the field today, Arteta would not have been at the Emirates to witness it, having tested positive for Covid-19 a second time.

    Instead, the Spaniard will be isolated at home and admit he will need plenty of space to deal with his frustrations.

    He said: “It will be a very strange experience and I will need a large room to walk around because I will not be able to just sit on the sofa and watch. I’m going to focus completely because it’s a big, big game and it’s frustrating not being there.

  • City bets on another success

    Arsenal may have won the last 5 matches, scoring 19 goals and conceding only 2, but the bookies did not give them many opportunities before the arrival of Manchester City.

    • Arsenal won 9/2
    • Drawing 16/5
    • Man City won 8/13
