Arsenal have lost 4 of their last 5 matches in the Premier League and their only win has come against a struggling Hull City side. They have conceded 11 goals in that run and managed to find the net on just 6 occasions. These stats are just for the Premier League, not mentioning their humiliating 10-2 aggregate defeat in the Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich.

Any hopes of a title win for Manchester City look to be over now as they trail Chelsea by 12 points. City are undefeated in their last 7 Premier League matches, but their last 2 matches have been drawn, costing them crucial ground in the title race.

Manchester City won the first match against Arsenal this season 2-1 with Arsenal winning the corresponding fixture last season 2-1. In between that, there was a 2-2 draw at City’s ground and a 3-2 win for Arsenal in the Charity shield at the start of the season.
