“Arsenal” will try to take revenge on “Man City” for the recent defeat in the FA Cup.
On Wednesday, February 15, the postponed match of the 12th round of the English Premier League will take place, in which the main contenders for the championship title – “Arsenal” and “Manchester City” will meet.
The game will be held at the Emirates Stadium in London. The main referee of the meeting will be Anthony Taylor.
“Arsenal” is not showing the best game in the last matches. From the last five games, the Gunners won only twice, drew once and failed twice.
It is noteworthy that “Arsenal” cannot win three matches in a row. The unsuccessful streak of the Gunners began with a 0:1 defeat to Manchester City in the FA Cup. Then there was a sensational fiasco in the game with “Everton” (0:1) and a draw with “Brentford” (1:1).
It is worth noting that “Arsenal” lost points in two consecutive matches of the Premier League for the first time this season.
In “Manchester City”, in turn, things are going much better. In the last five games, the “townsmen” lost only once (against “Tottenham” (0:1)) and won four.
Arsenal’s unsuccessful streak allowed Man City to close the gap with the Gunners in the standings.
Victory in the game against “Arsenal” will allow Pep Guardiola’s men to go to first place in the championship. Yes, the Londoners will still have a game in reserve, but the initiative may pass to the “citizens”. This is the least that Arteta’s team wants to allow.
