Can't remember where these two teams are set in the Premier League? Let us refresh your memory – City and the Gunners are placed in 2nd and 9th respectively, Both have a game in hand on the rest of the field, hence making the early mid-week start before the main action this weekend.
Both will probably feel disappointed by their campaigns to date, with City unable to truly challenge Liverpool in defence of their crown and Arsenal unlikely to grab a Champions League berth... again.
Those wanting some narrative can look towards Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta. Having served as an assistant under Guardiola at the Etihad for four years before taking the top job at old club Arsenal in December. It was a rocky first few months before he contracted coronavirus around the same time the Premier League came to a stand-still in March.
