Confirmed Match Officials: Manchester City vs Arsenal (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Anthony Taylor will take charge of Manchester City’s Premier League clash with Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester City return to action this weekend with the first of 10 matches across three competitions between late March and the end of April, as current Premier League leaders Arsenal visit the Etihad Stadium.

Just one point separates Arsenal, Liverpool and City at the top of the Premier League table ahead of the final 10 fixtures of the campaign, with Pep Guardiola’s side still bidding to win a record-breaking fourth successive title and retain last season’s treble.

The Sky Blues are unbeaten since December, but recent draws to Chelsea and Liverpool have seen Manchester City slip to third in the table, with a 1-1 at Anfield prior to the recent international break.

Manchester City have also lost twice to Arsenal this season, suffering defeats in the FA Community Shield at Wembley Stadium and at the Emirates Stadium in the reverse league meeting.

Guardiola is sweating on the fitness of a number of first-team stars ahead of the crunch meeting, with questions marks surrounding Ederson, Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones, Kyle Walker, Manuel Akanji and Matheus Nunes.
