Arsenal and Mikel Arteta will be banking on an unbeaten home record this term to end three unwanted records against Man City as the first two teams on the Premier League table clash Wednesday night at the Emirates stadium.
The Gunners are unbeaten in 13 Premier League home matches, winning 11 and drawing two, their longest such run without defeat at the Emirates between August 2018 and April 2019 (16).
Arteta and his men will be seeking an extension of that which will automatically means they remain top of the table either six points clear if they win or still three ahead of the Cityzens in case of a draw.
While Arsenal will be aiming to end a 10-match losing run versus Man City, their longest such streak against a Premier League opponent, their manager, Arteta will be seeking his first win in six games as a manager against the visitors.
Man City are the only club the Spaniard has failed to beat as a Premier League manager as he has lost all five games he has played against the Cityzens.
Man City can however be the first team in history to win seven consecutive away matches against Arsenal.
If Pep Guardiola’s side win they go above Arsenal on goal difference, knocking them off top spot for the first time since August.
