Man City Vs Arsenal: Gunners Face Guardiola’s ‘Firing Squad’
Pep Guardiola’s and his merry men have been ruthless.
They take no prisoners and will be hoping to extend their lead at the top of the EPL table to 8 points.
City have won 14 and drawn just one of their 15 matches in all competitions this season and they have done so in style.
Scoring 45 goals in the process, an average of three per game and giving away very little.
With Live scores readily served on the Bounce News App, we could be counting more goals on Sunday.
Also, going into this Super Sunday clash, the Gunners will be wary of all manner of records City are setting and breaking with ease under Guardiola.
The Cityzens are now 21 games unbeaten in all competitions.
They are also currently on a 13-game winning streak, which is a new Club record.
History Favours The Gunners
If records would count in Sunday’s game at the Etihad Stadium, the Gunners could be confident of at least a share of the spoils.
Manchester City have won just one of their last nine meetings with Arsenal in all competitions.
Last season, City had to come from a goal down to win this same fixture 2-1.
That was Manchester City’s only win in their last nine encounters against Arsenal. Of the remaining eight games, they’ve drawn four and lost four.
Their most recent defeat against the Gunners came in last season’s FA Cup semi-final.
Alexis Sanchez, who very nearly joined Manchester City in the summer, scored the winner for Arsenal that day; the Chilean has scored just once in eight Premier League appearances so far this season.
Meanwhile, even though some feel the other Sunday game between Chelsea and Manchester United will have more traction, for those who like free-flowing samba football, the City vs Arsenal game is highly-recommended.
Aside the goals Guardiola’s men are raining, they are taking significantly more touches of the ball than their domestic rivals.
The Blues have taken a total of 9,102 touches, while second-placed Arsenal have taken 8,136.

Arsenal must be at their very best to avoid being disgraced by City as they have won just one away game against the ‘big six’ since the start of the 2014/15 season.
On the log, Guardiola’s side have amassed 28 points in their first 10 Premier League games while Arsenal have nine less from same number of games.
