Man City may be only one point behind Arsenal in the title race, but it would seem that the club are very pessimistic about their visit to the Emirates on Monday. The official Man City website thinks that the big battle of the game will be between Ozil and Silva….
Arsenal have a great chance to put some space between ourselves and our main rivals for the title on Monday night. Man City looked awesome at the beginning of the season, but they have dropped back a little lately and haven’t won away for a couple of months.
Here are a lot of good reasons why we all think that Arsenal have every reason to be confident on Monday against Manchester City….

City are ripe for the picking – they’ve not scored away since September or won away since the 12th of Sept.
Arsene Wenger has come out and said that there is a slight chance that Alexis Sanchez will be fit to face Man City on Monday, but we all know about the Chilean’s power of recovery and the fact that Wenger will definitely play him even if he is only 70% fit!
Wenger coy on transfers and Chelsea but is he prepared for City? by KM
Hi guys. So I know that Man City is still four days away, but you kinda get the sense that the talk is evolving around our game with them on Monday night. It is labeled the title decider because we and them are the only top teams who look relatively OK, despite our own problems in the league.
Being a Gooner it is easy to get wrapped up in all things Arsenal and ignore what is going on at the other clubs trying to win the Premier League title. The long and short of it is, however, that even though Arsenal will go to the top of the table if we win away at West Bromwich Albion tomorrow, it will be a short lived spell on top if Manchester City win their own game later in the day.
First of all you have to decide whether the former Arsenal forward and current TV pundit Charlie Nicholas has a point and if he does, whether it is a big problem for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players to overcome. The fact that the Scot made his claim about the Gunners before we struggled to a draw in the north London derby certainly supports the theory he put forward that Arsenal are still suffering the same problems that affected us last season.
Well we have only played one round of the International matches, and only have Arsenal players scored quite a few goal (as in Walcott, Cazorla and Sanchez) but suddenly our opponents have become severely weakened. Is this the year where injuries actually work in our favour for a change?
