Arsenal host Manchester City at Emirates Stadium well aware that is perhaps the final test of their Premier League title credentials – while also bearing in mind a loss could open the door to Everton below them to reach the top four.
It is fair to say that the Gunners have struggled in recent fixtures against the biggest teams in the Premier League, with major losses against Liverpool and Chelsea over the course of the last month or so, conceding eleven times in the two matches.
Arsene Wenger may elect to set up his team rather more conservatively against Man City than against Chelsea, with both Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta in midfield and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain shifted to the wing.
Kim Kallstrom could also be in contention to start after an encouraging performance from the bench in midweek against Swansea City, with the likes of Lukas Podolski, Tomas Rosicky and Santi Cazorla also expected to feature at some stage.
Man City could call upon Arsenal old boys Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri, but will be missing Matija Nastasic, Micah Richards and Sergio Aguero.
