How to watch Premier League title race clash and predictions

Manchester City and Arsenal collide in what is bound to be a defining fixture in the Premier League title race on Sunday afternoon.

Fans will be flocking to their television screens, mobiles and tablets throughout the afternoon to watch a sure-fire classic. Here’s all the TV information you need for Man City vs Arsenal.

Arsenal are historically dominant in their head-to-head record with Man City, but victories have been less forthcoming in the modern age following the Cityzens’ ascent to the top of the English game.

The north London giants hold 24 Premier League wins to Man City’s 19 from 53 matches.

In all competitions, the Gunners can boast 100 wins to City’s 65, with the remaining 45 fixtures ending in draws. While Mikel Arteta’s side won the first league meeting of the season late on thanks to Gabriel Martinelli’s strike, their recent results at the Etihad do not provide cause for optimism.

City are unbeaten in home Premier League matches against Arsenal since 2015 and thrashed their title rivals 4-1 in this game in April last year.

The result of this game is bound to shape the seasons of both Man City and Arsenal in some way during the run-in. With the hosts dealing with some significant absences in defence, the visiting Gunners may feel this is an opportune moment to seize a first Etihad win since 2015.

However, there’s no guarantee Arsenal will have their strongest XI out, either. There are doubts over the fitness of Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, while the presence of Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne is a nightmarish one for most teams around the world.

It’s undoubtedly a huge opportunity for both sides but City have experience of winning crucial fixtures like this and may find a way to beat their title rivals at home on Sunday afternoon.

Prediction: Man City 2-1 Arsenal
