Having won the EFL Cup, City will be aiming to pick maximum points again when they meet the Gunners

Arsenal will face the misery of having to play Manchester City again this time at the Emirates Stadium for Thursday night's English Premier League encounter.

The Gunners were humbled 3-0 at Wembley on Sunday as Pep Guardiola secured his first trophy in English football, thanks to Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva's efforts.

However, the defeat put Arsene Wenger in the spotlight and with ten points behind fourth-placed Tottenham on the log, anything short of victory could further fustrate the London outfit’s top-four ambitions.
