Manchester City vs Arsenal Preview, Live Score: EPL 2009-10

Manchester City hosts Arsenal on 12 September (Saturday) in a very important English premier league match. City has made a formidable squad in the summer signing some of the big stars like Tevez, Adebayor, Barry, Lescot and some others. Arsenal, as usual, depends on their own wealth and did not make any big move in Summer transfer window. There are many who believe that Manchester City would replace Arsenal from the top four, and thus, winning a champions league place next season.

Match: Manchester City vs Arsenal; English Premier League 2009-10

Date: 12 September 2009

Venue: City of Manchester Stadium, Manchester, England

Time: 15:00 BST; 14:00 GMT

Manchester City and Arsenal do not have any traditional rivalry- not in terms of regional location, not in terms of success. However, this time the story seems to be different. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s lack of interest in big-money signing has led many people to consider the Gunners as the least strong side in the traditional ‘Big Four’ clubs. Now that, City is trying to move up in the league standing in their attempt to clinch a champions league place, it is pretty much clear that Arsenal is thought to be victim of Manchester City’s triumph. This matter must have increased the significance of the upcoming clash.

Both clubs need to deal with injury woes as City is missing Tevez, who picked up an injury while on international duty with Argentina, while Robinho is not yet confirmed for the match as he is also recovering a minor injury sustained in the same match. Arsenal is missing the service of Russian playmaker Andrei Arshavin who was injured during Arsenal’s recent 2-1 defeat at Manchester United last week.
