Arsenal have been dealt a blow ahead of their crucial Premier League fixture with league leaders Manchester City, with Mikel Arteta due to miss the game following a positive Covid test.
Arsenal are the second most in-form team in the Premier League right now. Indeed, they have won four out of their last five league fixtures.
The Gunners are second only to Manchester City regarding form over the last five rounds of fixtures. City have won five out of a possible five during that span.
Arsenal’s good run of form has them sitting in fourth place in the Premier League, 12 points behind City.
Indeed, Arteta’s impact at Arsenal over the past year has been clear. The north London side won 79 points between last Christmas and this one, the joint second-highest total in the Premier League.
