Ashburton Grove arena will host the game of the next round of the APL. Considering that the main contenders for the title will find out the relationship, the confrontation between the teams of Mikel Arteta and Josep Guardiola attracts great interest and attention of the fans. Equally important is the fact that the coaching duel is actually a dispute between an “apprentice” and a “teacher”, because previously the Canaries’ mentor worked for the former Barcelona boss in Manchester.
Arsenal are currently at the top of the standings and deserve only positive reviews this season. In the last game, the Gunners suffered a 0-1 defeat at the hands of Everton, and before that they were weaker than Manchester City with the same score. Thus, it makes sense to say that the team’s game has not changed for the better.
The Mancunians have not lost in the previous six face-to-face games in London in the English league. Viewers have seen at least three goals in six of the previous eight duels in London in the APL.
Manchester City is in second place in the standings and is not showing their best soccer this season. “The Citizens suffered a 0-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur in their previous game. In five previous meetings City have two defeats (+3=0-2).
City players have scored at least two goals in six of the previous eight disputed sides in the British capital in the English championship.
Arsenal have been showing impressive soccer this season, but they have been misfiring regularly in recent matches. There is no doubt – the Canaries need to make themselves known again after the defeat against Everton in order to give their fans confidence, as well as to show that the team is playing well, and talk of a crisis is unfounded. However, to do this against a team with the strongest squad in the APL will be extremely difficult.
“Manchester City was uninspiring against Tottenham, confirming that, at this stage, the Mancunians also play far from perfect. And therein lies the chance for the opponent. Kevin De Bruyne will have special motivation for this game. The Belgian was left on the bench against Spurs and will try to leave his mark on the game against the Pushkars this time. Given that in five of the previous seven meetings the teams scored no more than three goals between them, such a scenario is also called for this time.
