Arsenal currently sit at the top of the table, with City trailing by just one point.

The result of Sunday’s match could be a defining moment in the title race, with Liverpool also in the running.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright is convinced that his former side CAN do the double over City.

However, Keane is adamant that it won’t happen.

In the latest episode of The Overlap by Sky Bet, Wright said: “We’re beating them. You know why I’m saying that? We have to beat them.”

Keane responded: “That doesn’t mean you’re going to win.”

However, Gary Neville chimed in to state: “I think you have to beat them.”

“Why should I not think we can beat them?” Wright continued. “We’ve got a great defensive record and we’re scoring goals. Why should I now go negative on my team?”


Manchester United icon Neville went on to back Arsenal before ex-Man City and England star Jill Scott argued: “Arsenal are not going to win this year.”

Keane went on to say: “This is big boy stuff now. Arsenal are not winning there. Arsenal are not winning at Man City.”

The former Man Utd midfielder was so confident in his prediction that he even made a bet to buy Wright a watch if Arsenal win.

He continued: “I’m going 2-1 City. Arsenal are not winning there. You’re getting kidded, I’m telling you.”

Guardiola has several injury concerns ahead of the match, with Kyle Walker, John Stones, Manuel Akanji and Ederson all doubts.

As for Arsenal, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Magalhaes withdrew from international duty last week.

However, both players are expected to be fit for Sunday.
