Manchester City vs Arsenal: TV channel, stream, kick-off time, odds & match preview

Manchester City can extend the gap between themselves and Arsenal to 12 points with a win at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The Gunners visit the league leaders looking to avoid losing further ground at the top having already suffered three defeats in the top flight this term.

GAME PREVIEW

Alexandre Lacazette Arsenal

How can Arsenal stop the Manchester City bandwagon?

It is getting to the stage where it seems impossible to beat Pep Guardiola’s team without a little bit of luck, such is the depth and variety of their attacking options.

But both West Brom and Napoli have made City work for their most recent two victories by going for goal.

The risk, of course, is that committing too many men forward sees you punished brutally by Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and the rest of Guardiola’s star-studded forward line.

But while City’s defence helps to support the attack with its quality in possession, it might still be a unit that can be put under pressure in its own half.
