The Premier League kicks off 2022 in a nice way, as Arsenal host Manchester City on New Years Day.
The teams occupy fourth and first place respectively, but they are worlds apart in terms of expectations. The Gunners must be happy with their current place in the table, given their awful start to the campaign and how their final seasons have unfolded. The London side are one of the hottest teams in the Premier League as they prepare for Saturday’s game on a four-game winning streak.
However, City is just on a different level. The Sky Blues are 15 points more than Arsenal heading into their clash, and they have an eight-point cushion at the top of the table. Pep Guardiola’s men have won 10 straight league wins, having outscored opposition 18-3 in the most recent four wins.
That kind of form can be difficult to break, and Arsenal will have to do it without manager Mikel Arteta on the sidelines. Arteta is in isolation under COVID-19 protocols, leaving his assistants to manage the squad against England’s top team.
It will be a challenge, but Arteta has confidence in his coaching staff.
“Well, Albert [Stuivenberg] will be in charge of the rest of the squad and depending on the coaches we have, because we’ve had so many problems in this department recently, but everyone will be there to try to help us as much as possible, âsaid Arteta. “We’re going to be in contact, but also, I want to give them the possibility, the opportunity and the freedom to make decisions on the pitch and to express themselves because it’s completely different to be on that sideline. closer to the players and the action than being at home. I’ll be there to support and help at times, but they have to give the game a boost and communicate with the players themselves. “
