1. Arsenal have it all to play for

Arsenal have high expectations to end the season on the high. Undeniably, Arteta will want to finish in a Champions League spot, however I’m sure given the circumstances, he would be content with a Europa League place.

Manchester City, on the other hand, are fighting a lost cause. Of course, they will finish in a Champions League spot, which given their personal circumstances will lead to nothing. While it’s still possible they can win the league, let’s be realistic, Liverpool won it a long time ago.

That said, Pep may be suffering a loss of motivation. The priority for Pep will be to experiment with his team between now and the season, in order to test the boundaries and locate which positions he needs to invest in the summer.

From a psychological perspective, this puts Arsenal on a pedestal to win the match. It means they have more to play for, so they will, of course, be working harder to get the win. We have seen that Arsenal was one of, if not the first Premier League teams to return to training and while social media doesn’t paint the whole picture, they seem to be focused on beating City in training.

They have played a few fixtures already, with Eddie Nketiah showing good form in these training fixtures. That said, Arteta is in a good place to judge his best starting XI against his former club. No matter what happens, I’m looking forward to this one.
