FOUR days after being humbled by Man City in the Carabao Cup Final Arsenal welcome the treble chasers to the Emirates.
There were plenty of calls for Arsene Wenger's head after a weak performance at Wembley and he must have been having nightmares when he looked at the fixture list.
Man City proved they are streets ahead of the Gunners and that's reflected in the fact they lead them by 27 points in the Premier League.
It's a one-horse race for the title but Wenger he looks set to miss out on Champions League football for the second season running unless he can win the Europa League and on form you'd back AC Milan to beat them in the last 16.
City won as easily as the score suggested on Sunday and that's why they are no bigger than 8-11 at William Hill and BetVictor to pick up the points. I can't remember a visiting team being as short at the Emirates but times are changing.
Pep Guardiola has this match and another huge one on Sunday at home to Chelsea but he can then rotate with a big lead and a Champions League last-eight place already assured.
Arsenal have won just two of the last 11 meetings between the sides and Sergio Aguero's opener at Wembley made it four in six against the Gunners.
However, in the Premier League City have won just once in 20 at the Emirates under Roberto Mancini in 2013. They've drawn seven and lost 12 but this side is far superior to their opponents and are set to notch a third win against the Gunners this season.
Man City and over 2.5 goals has a chance at 5-4 with Ladbrokes. It could be another 3-0 but more likely 2-1 or 3-1.
If Man City play to their full potential they could again cover the -1 handicap which pays 7-4 at BetVictor.
