With 50 points from 19 games, Mikel Arteta’s side have been nearly unstoppable this campaign in the Premier League.
Manchester City welcome Arsenal to Etihad Stadium for an intriguing FA Cup fourth round contest on Friday night. This match will be difficult to call for various reasons. A year ago, Man City would have been the favourite to get the three points at Etihad. However, a lot has changed since then in the top division. Arsenal have emerged as a real force to be reckoned with in this campaign. The Gunners are deservedly sitting at the top spot in the standings and are providing a terrific challenge to the defending league champions City.
At the start of the campaign, not many would have anticipated Arsenal to occupy the top spot at this stage of the season in the Premier League. But the Gunners have defied the odds to deservedly sit at the top of the pile. They have been fully worth of their place at the summit of English football. With 50 points from 19 games, Mikel Arteta’s side have been nearly unstoppable this campaign. They have lost only once this season in the league and drawn two more times, while winning the remaining 16 games.
On the other hand, Manchester City are not entirely having a bad season, however, Arsenal’s impressive form has forced Pep Guardiola’s side to settle for second place till now. Besides, inconsistency has been a big problem for Man City. Either way, they are not too far away from the top spot. Man City currently have 45 points from 20 games to be placed second in the table. They have to be at the top of their game to get a win over the high-flying Arsenal on Friday night.
