Is this now the perfect time for Arsenal to face Man City?

Saturday was a fantastic day for us Gooners, but it was disastrous for our main title rivals, Manchester City. Manchester City hoped to keep their unbeaten start to the Premier League season. On the other hand, Wolves had different plans; they beat them 2-1 at Molineux, with City’s Ruben Dias scoring an own goal in the 13th minute before they equalised in the 58th minute through Julian Alvarez.

Still, just as they believed they were on the verge of a comeback, Wolves Matheus Cunha had other ideas; he, in the 66th minute of that game, set up Hee-Chan Hwang to score the game-winning goal.

The PL defending champs must have been frustrated about their loss, but to add salt to injury, they must have seen we won 4-0, bridging the 4-point gap between us and them to 1 point. Being a point behind the City is a good thing for us. With it, our main rivals had a tough, frustrating weekend, and we had a good one. As Gooners, we can’t be comfortable about that; we can’t help but reflect on what next weekend holds for us. Up next for us is a clash against Manchester City. What a game that will be!

Last season, they beat us home and away, but this time around, I don’t expect that will happen; we have to beat them. If we win that game, we set up a 2-point gap between us and them and turn the tables; they start chasing us like last season As wise as we’ve become, that’s no position they should want us to be in.

With Arsenal still unbeaten and feeling very confident at the moment, and Man City being humbled at Wolves, is this the perfect time for Arsenal to face Pep Guardiola’s team?

    1. There is never perfect time to play mancity. Last season we faced manu, Everton, Lpool at their worst phase and still lost points. We can’t count on opponents form but better respect them for what they are and give it all to play with maximum efficiency.

    1. If there is ever a time to face the champion is now,

      With Rodri missing and the uncertainty surrounding the aging Kevin de Bruyne, the law of average dictates any game can play when we face the limping champion.

  1. Should be an easy win for arsenal. We’re playing utter crap currently. Just shows how kdb and rodri carry our team. The rest haven’t a clue.

  2. Of course! KDB,Stones and Rodrigo who make the difference out, not sure why we can’t but i’m not expecting an easy game cos those three men out only increase our scoring chances not sure at defending.

  3. Can we even focus on Lens for now please.We can think about City thereafter. We don’t even know what our injury situation is after Bournemouth. And it could change significantly after Lens.
    One game at a time please

  4. Good time sure perfect i don’t think so. We haven’t exactly been flying this season haven’t we. That being said Rodri missing makes City much more vulnerable in transitions.

    If we go gung-ho and start like a house on fire, we have a better chance of winning even with a chance of a big win if we are clinical. City don’t like when you get in their faces and make the game end to end.
    If we go the whole control and lock the game approach then we are more than likely to lose to the best in the business at it.

  5. given we must play every team home and away – it feels like we are playing as well as we have this season and they are in a dip with key players missing – so if I had to pick a weekend to play Man City this season it would be now, especially at home

    now if can just transfer our away defensive solidity to the Emirates we have a red hot chance

  6. Arsenal needs to keep their heads down and play their own game never thinking about the last results. It’s a new ball game that needs to be won that’s it.
