It’s 2nd place vs 3rd place, winner moves that bit closer to the summit of the mountain, or Leicester! It’s Arsenal taking on Manchester City, a game that is rarely not entertaining, always action packed and full of goals, unlike Manchester United this season! While it it can’t been seen as a major decider in the Premier League winner just yet…with it only being December, it will give a good indication as to who will be the first team to chase after the Foxes, Leicester City! If either team lose this game, they aren’t out of the Chase…not by a long shot!
Venue: The Emirates
The last two games played at The Emirates against Manchester City have ended up as a draw, although Arsenal haven’t here since the Opening Game of the season whereas Man City haven’t won away since September! It looks set to be a good game but it’as missing two vital pieces, one from both sides, Kompany for Man City and Sanchez for Arsenal.
Many will seriously consider either City or Arsenal to win the Premier League but I will think that neutrals will love to see Leicester defy the odds and shock the Footballing world! I’ll admit that it would be amazing to see that happen! If I could have one team win the league apart from Arsenal, I’ll go for Leicester!
With Christmas around the corner, I would be amazed if anyone other than a Leicester fan predicted that they would be on top of the table! Arsenal are 2nd which I’m happy with but with the team above us and Chelsea miles down near the bottom and Man United becoming the most boring team to play in this league….also Watford! I think this is slowly becoming the most shocking season we have ever had, no one can correctly predict who will win it all, anyone can beat anyone! It’s exciting and watchable for all! Will it remain that way or will normality soon take over once again…depends if Leicester fall away after Christmas or if they keep going on their amazing run but as for tonight, anything can happen…hell, we could even have Jose Mourinho nearly becoming Manchester United manager by the end of it!
Here are tonight’s teams!
Manchester City Squad
42 Y Touré
17 De Bruyne
My prediction? It’s tough to call but I will go for an Arsenal win, I have to! But that City squad looks really good, with Aguero, Silva and De Bruyne in it but we have Giroud, Cech and Ozil as well so it will be close but with home advantage, I think we can nick it but if not, a hard earned draw but as for now, 2-1 to Arsenal is my prediction for this game and I certainly hope it’s a far better game than Swansea vs West Ham or any game involving Man United this season!
