Man City and Arsenal are currently separated by just a single point in the Premier League table, and alongside Liverpool, are competing in one of the most exciting title races in recent memory. It’s no exaggeration to say the winner of this match will take a significant advantage into the final straight, which makes this title clash unmissable regardless of your allegiances. 

Man City were on a remarkable winning streak against the Gunners. City had managed 15 straight wins in the Premier League against Arsenal, but last October an 86th-minute deflected strike from Gabriel Martinelli saw Mikel Arteta’s men finally banish that unwanted record. Nevertheless, Arsenal’s away record at Man City remains poor, they haven’t won at the Etihad Stadium since January 2015. 

This fixture proved to be a pivotal moment in the EPL 2022/23 season. Arsenal had been in the driver's seat pretty much all season but a 4-1 win for Man City last April shifted the momentum and Arsenal went on to finish in 2nd place, a heartbreaking result after having an 8-point lead at one stage in the season. The Gunners will be desperate to avoid a repeat.  

Here's how they line up: 

Man City: Ortega, Ake, Ruben Dias, Akanji, Gvardiol, Rodri, Kovacic, Bernardo Silva, Foden, De Bruyne, Haaland.

Arsenal: Raya, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Kiwior, Odegaard, Jorginho, Rice, Saka, Havertz, Jesus.

Man City vs Arsenal has all the ingredients to be one of the most enthralling and significant matches of the entire Premier League season. You definitely don’t want to miss this one, and we’ve got all the details you need to watch from anywhere down below. 

Plus, make sure you don’t miss any of the EPL action with our guide for how to watch Premier League live streams.
