Four days after an embarrassing 3-0 loss to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final, Arsenal gets a chance to avenge that defeat when it hosts Premier League-leading Manchester City at the Emirates on Thursday.
Arsenal has fallen off the top-four places in the Premier League, as the Gunners sit sixth with 45 points—that’s eight points behind fifth-place Chelsea and 10 behind Tottenham for the fourth and final Champions League spot, though Arsenal does have a game in hand. Sunday’s cup final was a chance to secure a trophy in what has been another disappointing season, but Arsenal was outclassed from kickoff by a City side that is flying.
With 11 games to go, City has all but sealed up the league title. A win on Thursday would push its lead to 16 points, a virtually insurmountable lead when you consider that Pep Guardiola’s side has dropped just nine points all season. Arsenal is still a capable side, so City will have to be on high-alert to avoid an upset, particularly with another difficult league matchup vs. Chelsea just three days later.
When these two sides played at the Etihad earlier in the season, Man City coasted to a 3-1 victory.

Manchester City have won their first trophy of the season at the expense of a very bad Arsenal side on Sunday’s League Cup final at Wembley. The Blues are now back in action in the Premier League against the same Arsenal, and they’ll be hoping to get even closer to the title with a win against the Gunners.
But it won’t be easy. Arsenal have been very good at the Emirates this season, and the players will definitely be looking to give their fans a response after a horrible performance in the title match. Pep Guardiola will also rotate his side a little bit to preserve some important players for Sunday’s massive game against Chelsea, which could make things a little tougher for City.
Regardless of the outcome, this promises to be a really good match between two Premier League teams that love to play great football. This is a must-watch game, and you just can’t miss it.
