Arsenal will look to keep their faltering title challenge titles alive when they take on Manchester City at the Emirates in the big evening kickoff later today.
The Gunners, unbeaten at home since an opening day defeat to Aston Villa, have endured a difficult week, crashing 6-0 to Chelsea in Arsene Wenger’s 1000th game in charge last weekend and drawing 2-2 draw at home to Swansea midweek.
The result left the club 6 points behind leaders Chelsea with seven games to go and left many pundits questioning their chances of winning the title.
One man who stills believes the club can end their ten year wait for a title is former midfielder Robert Pires, although the Frenchman did admit that in order to do so they will have to beat City this weekend.
“I hope (they can win the title),” he said. “It is my dream for the fans, for the players and for (Arsene) Wenger.
“But it depends on Saturday. If they win they could do it.”
While Arsenal have stumbled recently, City have gone from strength to strength and they will head into the clash on the back of a 3-0 win over rivals Manchester United midweek, a result that moved them to within 3 points off top spot with two games still in hand.
Goals from Edin Dzeko (2) and Yaya Toure sealed a fourth straight win for the City and confirmed many peoples belief that they will win the title.
Despite their tag as favourites, club captain Vincent Kompany insists that the race for the title is far from over and his side has plenty left to do.
“It’s just one little step (beating United),” Kompany told Sky Sports after the victory. “The other teams are still very good.
“I mean games have to be played. As long as we don’t have the points, I don’t consider ourselves there yet.
“With the game against Arsenal, obviously it’s good in a way, because you don’t have to make a big effort to get the lads focused again.”
City will without top scorer Sergio Aguero for the while Matija Nastasic also missed out with a knee injury.
Arsenal meanwhile will be without injured trio Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere with Laurent Koscielny also set to miss out.
