Matchweek 28

In matchweek 28, Arsenal host Crystal Palace at home. As mentioned earlier, Palace are out of form and having likely just faced a beating by City by the time they play Arsenal, they’ll be low on confidence. Easy win for Arsenal here.

Manchester City don’t play in this matchweek.

Matchweek 29

It’ll be a tougher time for the champions in matchweek 29 as Manchester City host Liverpool at home. It’s a midday fixture to kickoff the matchweek and with Liverpool finding form, you can’t see anything more than a point in this match. Liverpool always turn it up in big games, even away from home. They might do Arsenal a favour here.

Then, Arsenal host Leeds United at home. With Man City likely having dropped points just hours before, the pressure will be on Arsenal but they’ve been in this situation many times and came out with three points. Leeds aren’t the best competition – three points for the league leaders here.
