Our prediction: Arsenal v Man City

Arsenal could be forced to deploy a makeshift defence in response to several COVID cases and injury problems at the Emirates. They will also be without Arteta on the touchline after he tested positive.

City look irresistible right now and on paper, it's extremely difficult to predict anyone will topple them. Arsenal won't roll over, however.

Our prediction: Arsenal 1-2 Man City (8/1 at bet365)
