Manchester City Prepare Showdown with Table Toppers Arsenal

Weekend Premier League action on GOtv Supa+

The twists and turns in the title race will continue on this Sunday, 31 March and GOtv is here to make sure you don’t miss out on the action when Manchester City take on Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium at 17:30 (CAT).

 

The Citizens will be out for revenge since they lost the previous fixture this season at the Emirates 1-0. On top of that, it will be crucial for them to pick up the win because they are only a point behind the Gunners, who are currently occupying first place on the table.

 

If history is anything to go by in the last three years, Manchester City have had the edge over Arsenal and would always score more than two goals against the Gunners forcing them into defeat in the Premier League. However, Mikel Arteta’s charges seem to be on the up and are probably looking to replicate their rare win over City in the league once again on Sunday.

 

Head-to-Head Results since August 2021 (Premier League):

 

  • 28 August 2021: Manchester City 5-0 Arsenal
  • 1 January 2022: Arsenal 1-2 Manchester City
  • 15 February 2023: Arsenal 1-3 Manchester City
  • 26 April 2023: Manchester City 4-1 Arsenal
  • 8 October 2023: Arsenal 1-0 Manchester City

 

It would also be crucial for the Sky Blues to get three points against the Gunners, since they drew against Liverpool not too long ago. Which gives another twist in this tumultuous title race, Liverpool are placed second on the log level on points with Arsenal. The only thing separating the two teams is goal difference… Yikes.

 

With a congested schedule ahead for City and Arsenal following this fixture due to UEFA Champions League quarter-final ties, crunch time in the Premier League and more, this is a must win fixture. For BOTH teams. Who will come out on top? Tune into SuperSport on GOtv to find out.
