Arsenal hosts Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Monday night in a top of the table clash.
Arsenal recorded a 2-0 win at struggling Aston Villa last time out, as goals from Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey gave Arsene Wenger’s side maximum points. The win moved Arsenal above City in the league table.
Arsenal’s club-record signing Mesut Ozil has been in outstanding form this season and has provided a league-high 13 assists this season. The German has provided assists in nine of his last ten top-flight games and found the net in the only game he did not provide an assist for his teammates.
The latest victory coupled with other results last weekend means that Arsenal are second in the Premier League table, two points behind surprise package Leicester City.
Manchester City recorded a 2-1 win against Swansea at the Etihad Stadium in dramatic fashion last time out. The Citizens took the lead through former-Swansea striker Wilfried Bony in the first half. The Welsh side looked set to claim a draw as French striker Bafetimbi Gomis scored an equaliser on 90 minutes.
The drama was not over yet though, as City’s young substitute Kelechi Iheanacho scored the winner for Manuel Pellegrini’s side two minutes into stoppage-time.
The Citizens will start this game in third position in the Premier League table, a point behind Arsenal and a further two behind leaders Leicester.
