Manchester City and their fans would need their goalscorer, Erling Haaland as they enter the final stretch of the title race after the International break with Liverpool visit on Saturday.
Haaland, who has scored an impressive 42 goals in 37 matches for City since joining from Borussia Dortmund, missed training on Thursday due to a groin injury.
His absence, along with midfielder Phil Foden, who is out following appendix surgery, will be welcomed by Arsenal supporters as they currently hold an eight-point lead over City.
The champions need a win against Liverpool to ensure Arsenal do not extend their lead into double digits. Meanwhile, the battle at the bottom of the table is tighter than ever, with nine clubs separated by just four points.
