Not too long ago, Pep Guardiola’s side was very much in the conversation as far as the title race was concerned, with the club chasing its third straight league title.
Manchester City raised their level towards the end of last season as they recovered from an inconsistent start to the campaign by racking up 98 points to become champions.
However, Guardiola’s men will have to do even more than that this year, after falling very far behind league leaders Liverpool in the race for the Premier League title.
With the Reds managing to earn yet another win on Saturday, as two goals from Mohamed Salah saw them secure a 2-0 triumph over Watford, City will have more chasing to do on Sunday.
Guardiola’s side won this fixture 2-0 at the start of last season, and even though Arsenal have finally ended their poor run without a win, City will still be deemed favourites to win at the Emirates stadium.
