It was 21-12-2015 when Arsenal, with the goals of Walcott and Giroud, defeated Manchester City for the last time in the Premier league. The 2-1 final was shaped by Yaya Toure.

In fact, the 2015-2016 season was the last year Arsenal finished above City. At that time, Leicester was crowned champion with Arsenal, who had Arsene Wenger on their bench, finishing second one point above Tottenham. This was also her best position in the Premier league in recent years.

Since then, the dominance of Pep Guardiola’s side has had an impact on their head-to-head as the Londoners have failed to beat them in the league. Exceptions were winning a friendly in 2016 and qualifying 2-1 for the FA Cup in 2017.

But this year the situation is different. With Arteta on the bench and after 23 matches, Arsenal are at the top of the league, 3 points behind second-placed City, who have a match in hand. This means that tonight he passes an important test, another big obstacle in the battle of the English championship. They have met just once in the FA Cup this season with Ake netting a 1-0 win for Manchester.
