Players of Mikel Arteta played in Portugal with almost the main line-up, which does not seem surprising. It is on this tournament that the "Gunners" are likely to focus on this season and try to get into the Champions League through European cups. Indeed, in the Premier League chances of getting a place in the top four and even the top six are very small.
Before the upcoming meeting with Manchester City, the London club is only tenth in the standings. Arsenal now have 34 points, which six less than sixth Liverpool. Although Everton, Tottenham and Aston Villa, which ranked seventh to ninth, have played one or two fewer games than Londoners.
In the last round of the English Championship, Arsenal interrupted a series of three matches without victories. Mikel Arteta's charges were accepted by Leeds and were defeated 4:2. But before this victory they earned only one point in the confrontation with Manchester United (0:0), after which they lost to Wolverhampton (1:2) and Aston Villa (0:1).
At their hometown "Emirates" the London club has not lost for six matches in a row. Of these, Arsenal won three times and drew the same number of times. In addition to Leeds, they also managed to defeat Chelsea (3:1) and Newcastle (2:0) during this segment. In general, in terms of playing at the home arena the Gunners occupy only the ninth position now. Out of 12 matches at home, they achieved only five victories, lost four matches and drew three times.

This week Manchester City played a missed Matchday game against Everton, where they confidently beat Toffees away with a score of 3:1. This victory was already the 12th in a row for the Mancunians in the English Championship. In general, the "townspeople" win over 17 matches in a row in all the tournaments and their unbeaten streak currently totals to 24 matches in a row. Manchester City suffered their last defeat on November 21-st, when they lost in the Premier League to Tottenham just away.
It is quite natural that after such results the Mancunians firmly established themselves at the top of the Premier League standings. Now Josep Guardiola's charges have 56 points on their balance sheet, which is ten more than their closest pursuers - Manchester United and Leicester.
On the road Manchester City have won their last ten matches in a row, six of which took place in the current championship of England. It should be noted that in the last five away matches of the championship, the "townspeople" scored at least two goals per game and in four of them they scored three or more. On the road the Mankunians are now the second best in the Premier League. On the rivals' fields they won eight of 12 matches, drew three times and lost to Tottenham.
Only midfielder Nathan Ake is in the Manchester City infirmary. Questionable for the match is Ilkay Gundogan.
