Monday evening promises all the features of providing football fans with a terrific entertainer. The thrill of watching Arsenal battle it out against Manchester City to retain the second spot in the English Premier League will be mesmerizing.
Manchester City will travel to the Emirates Stadium to play a decisive encounter against Arsenal on Monday, Dec. 21 starting 8 PM GMT.
As per the ESPN FC reports, Arsenal is one of the most consistent teams in this Premier League season and it will be tough for Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City to stop the Gunners in their own backyard.
Leicester’s remarkable run continues to flow as they sit comfortably on top of the table. The battle for number two has all the ingredients for an epic encounter.
As per the Standard UK post, “Arsenal’s home record against City in the Premier League era is formidable, but then so is Manuel Pellegrini’s £165 million attacking quartet of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero.”
Alexis Sanchez along with Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere are doubtful to play at Monday evening’s clash due to injury concerns.
Arsene Wenger commented, “It is a massive game. When we play at home you want to win because we are ambitious and we feel we have the chance to come out in a strong position after Christmas.”
“It will be a very tight game because if you look at the numbers since the start of the season, offensively and defensively the numbers are very close.”
