Manchester City vs Arsenal 1-0 Highlights
53' [1-0] David Silva
Arsenal face Manchester City in the English Premier League at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, 18th December 2011 4:10 PM GMT. Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany expects his side to return to winning ways against Arsenal at the weekend; however, the Citizens have actually lost at home to the Gunners 10 times in the EPL.
Manchester City won two out of the last five head-to-head clashes in December 2009 and recently in November 2011 with the score Arsenal 0–1 Manchester City in the CCUP. On this ground last year, Manchester City’s ship was drowned by 3 – 0 by Arsenal. In addition, both teams scored no goal in April 2010 and January 2011 EPL matches. The league leader Man City performed well in this season after winning three out of the last five latest games; drawing with Liverpool and being defeated by Chelsea on 12th December, 2011. It is said that Micah Richards who has been missing for a fortnight with a calf problem is ready to return and ease Manchester City's full-back crisis for Sunday's encounter with Arsenal. Meanwhile, Arsenal won two over Wigan Athletic, Everton; lost two against Man City, Olympiakos and drew one over Fulham late last month.
