Pep Guardiola has got two chances to breath down Jurgen Klopp’s neck this week.
Manchester City will be getting their serves in first in the title race ping-pong – and if all goes to plan, by Wednesday night they’ll be back on top of the table.
After their midweek slip, Pep Guardiola’s side have no room for error at the Etihad Stadium against a Gunners side chasing the Champions League spots
Manchester City will attempt to keep the pressure on Liverpool at the top of the Premier League when they host an Arsenal side that has been performing well this season.
Pep Guardiola’s men were stunned 2-1 by Newcastle on Tuesday, but the Reds’ inability to overcome Leicester the following day means that they are still in touch.
City know that any further slips may be fatal, though their next task is one of the most testing they will face before the end of the campaign as they tackle the Gunners, who have their own agenda as they chase the Champions League spots next term.
