So, with both teams having most of their first team players fit and options available to bot Guardiola and Arteta, it is going to be an intense title deciding match.

While Arsenal can definitely score a goal or two, we predict, however, that Man City will come out on top with the score at 3-2 to Man City.

The partnership between De Bruyne, Jack Grealish, Phil Foden and Erling Haaland will be lethal. So will be that of Odegaard, Martinelli and Bukayo Saka.
