Man City vs Arsenal date: When rivals will meet for crucial clash in title race

The Premier League title race is set to go down to the wire with Manchester City chasing table-toppers Arsenal and one key game could define both their seasons.

The Gunners currently sit eight points clear of Man City who have a game in hand on the league leaders.

Mikel Arteta’s side are closing in on their first title since 2004 but with 10 games left this season, there is plenty of work still to do.

And they are yet to face a trip to face the Citizens who are more than used to dealing with the pressures of a title fight.

In the previous meeting at the Emirates in February, it was Pep Guardiola’s men who came out on top.

Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland sealed a 3-1 win late on and City will be hoping to repeat that result.

When is Man City vs Arsenal? 

Man City host Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, April 26. 

The game is scheduled to kick off at 8pm. 

Both teams will have six matches left of the season after they meet meaning the result in Manchester will likely set up a thrilling end to the Premier League campaign.

City have beaten Arsenal in each of their last seven clashes at the Etihad while the Gunners have only won there once since 2010.

Premier League title race run-in

Arsenal have the advantage in the title race but they have a difficult run-in as we head towards the end of the season.

Alongside the upcoming title clash at City, the Gunners also have to face Liverpool and Chelsea as well as Newcastle and Brighton in their final few games.

They end the campaign with two more straight-forward looking games against Nottingham Forest and Wolves.

Guardiola’s men may also struggle with fatigue and focus as they remain in three competitions whereas the Gunners are only in one. 

City face a two-legged tie against Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals while also meet Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-finals.
