Manchester City 2 Arsenal 2
The Gunners will complete their 200th Premier League draw.
The last time these sides met was a tight affair resulting in a 1-nil victory to City in the Carling Cup last month, City scored from their only shot on target.
City have failed to keep a clean sheet in the Premier League since the first of October against Blackburn.
Statistically Manchester City have the upper hand, winning their last 12 successive home matches, however they have lost at home to Arsenal 10 times in the Premier League and 20 times overall (both a joint-league high with Chelsea).
Arsenal have scored in the 88th minute in three of their last four Premier League trips to the Etihad Stadium, so expect a tight affair in the closing stages of the match.
