Manchester City opened up a four-point lead over Arsenal in the Premier League, as Pep Guardiola's side took another step towards a third title in a row with a 3-0 win against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.
Meanwhile, now having played a game more, Mikel Arteta's men made it difficult for themselves by suffering their fifth league loss of the season in the 3-0 home defeat against Brighton.
Hence, the Gunners would now rely heavily on City dropping points while not being able to afford to drop any more themselves.
The next few games will be crucial for both teams as they look to keep the pressure on each other.
