LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)-The Premier League’s top-ranked Arsenal and defending champion Manchester City will square off at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday in a match that might determine the outcome of the championship.
Arsenal and Manchester City both know all too well that winning English football’s most coveted prize frequently requires something exceptional.
After three straight draws, the Gunners are in danger of losing an eight-point lead, but if they can defeat Pep Guardiola’s all-star City team, it will all be forgotten.
However, Mikel Arteta’s squad are up against it. City is vying for their sixth championship in the past six years and, as usual, has kept their finest play for the final stretch.
The fact that Arsenal hasn’t been in this situation in nearly 20 years and hopes to break their hegemony may prove to be the deciding factor.
The opportunity for players to make history now that the season is halfway over exists.
The balance can often be tipped by an outstanding team effort or an individual moment of brilliance, and there have been many to marvel at over the years.
