Welcome to our Manchester City vs. Arsenal preview and prediction for this important English Premier League match. Manchester City have been chasing Chelsea hard all season. They finally look over at the top of the league over the New Year, if only on Goal difference, but then slipped up last weekend at Everton to hand the lead back to Chelsea. They know they must win this to stay in touch. Arsenal cam unstuck at Southampton on New Year’s day, but have since beaten Stoke at home. Now thirteen points behind the league leaders, their title hopes have all but gone and they are playing for a place in Europe next season. They would be happy to come away with a point.
