The Premier League title race is set to go down to the wire with Manchester City chasing table-toppers Arsenal and one key game could define both their seasons.
The Gunners currently sit five points ahead of Man City who have two games in hand on the league leaders.
Mikel Arteta’s side are closing in on their first title since 2004 but after dropping points in three consecutive games while conceding seven goals, doubts are beginning to rise.
And they are yet to make the trip to face the Citizens who are more than used to dealing with the pressures of a title fight.
In the previous meeting at the Emirates in February, it was Pep Guardiola’s men who came out on top.
Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland sealed a 3-1 win late on and City will be hoping to repeat that result.
When is Man City vs Arsenal?
Man City host Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, April 26.
The game is scheduled to kick off at 8pm.
City have beaten Arsenal in each of their last seven clashes at the Etihad while the Gunners have only won there once since 2010.

Premier League title race run-in
Arsenal still have the advantage but have let Man City back into the race after dropping points against Liverpool, West Ham and Southampton.
Alongside the upcoming title clash at City, the Gunners also have to face Chelsea, Newcastle and Brighton in their final few games.
They end the campaign with two more straight-forward looking games against Nottingham Forest and Wolves.

City, of course, are hoping that Arteta’s side continue to slip up and hand them a shot at the title.
However, the Citizens also have to face the same standout opponents, taking on Chelsea, Brighton and Everton away.
Guardiola’s men may also struggle with fatigue and focus as they remain in three competitions whereas the Gunners are only in one.
City face a two-legged tie against Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals and also meet Sheffield United in the FA Cup last four.
A league trip to Brighton will need to be worked into their busy schedule, which is set to be complicated further after they dispatched Bayern Munich in Europe.
