Arsenal will face Manchester City in an exciting clash at Emirates on Sunday, April 1. This match could very well decide the team that will be in the top four and qualifies for the next year’s Champion league. The match is very important for the Arsenal side as they are currently placed in the sixth position in the points table but do have two games in hand on four of the five sides above them.
If Arsenal loses this match then they will be in big trouble as they could miss the Champions league this side. The team is in big trouble as fans are not happy with their performance this year. This has created a lot of pressure on the Arsene Wenger as they have lost four of their last five league games.
This will be the perfect match the Arsenal and Arsene Wenger to show their fans that they still have the same firepower and could beat the best team in the competition. Arsenal has the list of injured players which is increasing with every match. Petr Cech looks set to be out for around a month following his injury in a match against West Brom, Must Ozil has yet not recovered from injury, Santi Cazorla and Mathieu Debuchy are also injured.
On the other hand, Manchester City is 12 points off the top of the table but they still have the chance to win the league if the league leader could stumble at any point. But their main concerns will be to strengthen their position by winning this match. They will also be looking for the Champions league spot.
Pep Guardiola’s side has failed to draw any major attention toward themselves as they have still not found the best playing 11. This match will be very important for the side as they will next face the league leader Chelsea and they would love to go there with full of confidence. Man City is in good form in the recent matches. They have won three of the last five game, picking up 11 points from a possible 15 points. They will depend a lot on their star striker Sergio Aguero, to help them get three points.
As the tournament is coming to its end, every match will be very important for teams. We could expect the same in the Emirates. Both the teams will leave no stone unturned to win this match and take all the three points with them. This match will not only give the three points to the winners but it will also boost the moral of the whole team.
