However, after their recent wobble, the league leaders seem in danger of losing their grip on the Premier League title.

Neville's Arsenal vs Man City prediction

Be that as it may, Man United legend Neville contends that Arsenal will prove too strong for Manchester City if they bring their A-game during their meeting.

However, the former defender was quick to warn that a defeat to Arsenal in the tie could damage their title bid going forward.

"People will think City are hunting Arsenal down but Arsenal can damage City too because if they play to the levels they can play, they will win the match, because City are not at their level yet," Neville told Sky Sports Podcast.
"If they don’t and they lack courage and conviction – which can happen with teams that haven’t won titles – Man City will go for it," he added.

Arteta told to drop Martinelli

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Mikel Arteta is projected to parade a strong team when Arsenal take on Man City in a top-of-the-table clash on Wednesday night.

The match is a must-win for both teams as they seek to take control of the Premier League title race.

Arteta has been advised to consider benching Gabriel Martinelli in favour of Leandro Trossard ahead of the cracker.
