Manchester City a 'big problem' for Premier League title hopefuls, acknowledges Conte

Manchester City v Arsenal Arsene Wenger speaks on Manchester City's desire of signing Alexis Sanchez

"When we go there, we want to defend well but you can not go there and only be focused on just defending".

Think you can do better than Lawro?

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has now stated that he does not know whether Manchester City need Alexis Sanchez or not, but Arsenal surely do.

UK: TV: Sky Sports Premier League.

Leroy Sane has had a hand in 11 goals in his last seven Premier League games - and has scored and assisted in four of his last five league games.

Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by City at Stamford Bridge in September to crank up the pressure against United, but Conte says his players must embrace the challenge of facing the league's elite. If United drop points City could be six or even eight points in front of their main rivals with a win, and that advantage would be enormous even in the early stages of this season. Fairly or not, the words "passenger" and "Ozil" have featured in the same sentence with regularity during 2017 and, given both Manchester City's form and Arsenal's goalless draw at Chelsea, is this one afternoon when languid creativity might be considered secondary to more basic needs?

A 24th loss against Arsenal would equal City's record number of Premier League defeats against any side.

City's total of 35 league goals makes this the most prolific start by a Guardiola-led team, bettering Barcelona's 34 goals in 2008-09.

Arsenal have won 10 of their last 12 matches in all competitions, losing just once. They now lie fifth, nine points off the lead. They have an nearly comical 29 GD after 10 games, and they've scored a dozen more than second-placed Manchester United (and nearly twice as many as Arsenal).

"Even for the best teams in the world, in the whole history, it's impossible to maintain what we have done in the last two months".

Arsenal could lose four of their opening six away matches of a top-flight season for the first time since 1981.

Considering Arsenal are usually at the top of the injury league table, they have been rather fortunate this season. Given Ramsey and Xhaka are not defensive specialists, Fernandinho, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva could have a very good chance of dominating possession and finding passing lanes.

Probability of away win: 14%.
