The Premier League season is most definitely hotting up, and those who felt that Arsenal’s title challenge would fade are being forced to admit their mistake and any hope that Pep Guardiola’s side have of hauling back the Gunners comes when they host the Mikel Arteta’s side at the Etihad Stadium a game that you can still get Man City vs Arsenal tickets for via SeatPick, so what are you waiting for?
Ahead of the return from the international break, Arsenal sit a healthy eight points clear of the reigning title holders, albeit having played a game more, and the ball is very much in City’s court.
Guardiola knows full well that the pressure is on his side to complete the season with an almost flawless record, as any dropped points at this stage of the campaign could prove fatal, especially given the incredible run of form Arsenal have gone on in recent weeks.
The knives were out for Arteta when his team finally hit a speed bump with defeats to Everton and Man City sandwiching a poor draw at home to Brentford, but the North London club came roaring back.
They’ve won six on the bounce, including two memorable last-ditch wins against Aston Villa and AFC Bournemouth, and their exit from the Europa League means they are solely focused on securing their first Premier League title in almost 20 years.
Meanwhile, Man City are going great guns on numerous fronts, and that’s going to lead to a very congested fixture list for Guardiola. They have an FA Cup semi-final against Sheffield United to worry about, as well as two tough Champions League quarter-finals with German giants Bayern Munich.
Some may even argue that the Champions League is more important to City than a Premier League crown, which is understandable when you consider that Guardiola’s side have won the English domestic title in four of the past five seasons but have never won the UEFA Champions League.
With ten games left in the season for Arsenal and eleven for City, there is very little room for errors, and that makes the clash between the two frontrunners on April 26th a truly defining clash.
Manchester City took the win at the Emirates Stadium in February, and Guardiola certainly has an impressive record against his former assistant.
It’s a game that Arsenal will look to come away with something, and arguably, it’s a game that Man City can not afford to lose.
