Wenger needs jittery Arsenal to see off Man City

Sixth-placed Arsenal host Manchester City on Sunday in the unusual position of being outside the Premier League top four, which means they badly need a win over their third-placed opponents.

Arsenal have lost just one of their 19 previous Premier League home matches against Manchester City (W12, D6).

With five clubs vying for the three Champions League places below Chelsea - unless they can produce a surprise result at Anfield, Everton are surely too far behind - the whole top-four picture is complicated.

While Arsenal have a game in hand, they also have a testing match coming up with the visit of Manchester City. This is a must-win for seventh-placed Everton, but a game Liverpool can not afford to lose and Jurgen Klopp's men are likely to have the edge.

Merson predictions: Liverpool 2-0 Everton, Arsenal 1-3 City, Swansea 1-1 Boro, Burnley 1-2 Tottenham, Chelsea 3-0 Palace, Hull 2-1 West Ham, Leicester 2-2 Stoke, Man Utd 2-1 West Brom, Watford 0-2 Sunderland, Southampton 3-1 Bournemouth.

"It's a unusual season because we played 20 games unbeaten but I can not sit here and say we have no flaws in our team because we have".

Seven wins out of the final ten games guarantee that title, and while that assumes that Spurs win out (which they are not likely to do), there is little reason to relax just yet, especially in home games against non-top six opposition. Alexis can play as a striker and played there at the beginning of the season and played really good.

This is quite possibly Arsenal's biggest game of the season.

Even allowing for the tenacity that teams in the relegation battle can show at this stage in the season, Spurs, City and Liverpool all have enough games against sides lower in the table to keep ahead of the chasers. "Winning the Premier League is hard and we are out of the Champions League, so the FA Cup is the probably the best chance we have this season".

Not too many United fans will be holding their breath. While United appear to have a better chance than Arsenal, both could find the door already closed.
