City still need a few wins to guarantee a top-4 finish, but Pep Guardiola’s focus seems to be on winning this season’s Champions League with City facing a potentially damaging ban from European football next season.

Man City vs Arsenal kicks-off at the Etihad Stadium at 19.30 on Wednesday 11 March.
Man City haven’t been their usual flamboyant or clinical selves of late, with their last five Premier League games producing less than 2.5 goals. They’ve won three of those against Leicester (1-0), Sheffield United (1-0), and West Ham (2-0), but have also lost 2-0 to both Man United and Tottenham. That means City have scored just four goals and conceded the same amount in their last five Premier League games.
Arsenal have got amongst the goals of late, scoring three in beating Everton and four when beating Newcastle. They’ll travel to City this week having won their last three Premier League games, and they’ve kept clean sheets in three of their last four.
Man City and Arsenal have played each other 45 times in the Premier League, with Arsenal winning 23 matches, Man City 12, and 10 draws. Arsenal have also won 11 of their 22 away matches against City, with City winning 8, and 3 draws.
But it’s City that have won the last five matches the two teams since Pep Guardiola took charge. That includes winning their last two home games against Arsenal 3-1, whilst they’ve won their last three games at the Emirates Stadium 0-3, 0-2, and 0-3.
