Man City v Arsenal TV channel: Kick-off time, how to watch Premier League title decider, who is referee

Manchester City host Arsenal on Wednesday evening in a huge top of the table clash that could decide the outcome of the Premier League title race.

Mikel Arteta's Gunners have led the standings since August and were eight points clear last month – but draws in their last three matches against Liverpool, West Ham and Southampton mean that City are now just five points behind with two games in hand.

Arsenal can put their title fate back in their hands with a victory at the Etihad but that will be easier said than done against a City side who are unbeaten at home since November and who have scored 31 goals in their last eight matches.

A win for City would make them firm favourites to retain their crown from last season while a draw would still allow them to overtake Arsenal and move a point clear should they win their games in hand.

The sides have already met at the Etihad this season in the FA Cup fourth in Ferbruary, with City emerging with a 1-0 victory on that occasion, while Pep Guardiola’s side also won the previous league encounter at the Emirates by a 3-1 scoreline. City have also won all six of their Premier League home games against Arsenal under Guardiola.

City are fighting on three fronts after making it through to the semi-finals of the Champions League against Real Madrid and the final of the FA Cup, where they will meet derby rivals Manchester United at Wembley on June 3.
