Manchester City have won both matches against Arsenal this season by the same scoreline, 1-0.
City’s 1-0 win in the Carling Cup in November ended a run of 28 matches without a victory away at Arsenal in all competitions. Their last league victory came at Highbury in the old Division One on 4 October 1975.
City have gone 26 league matches without a win at Arsenal and have scored just nine goals in those games.
The last two league meetings at the Emirates have ended 0-0.
Arsenal have failed to score in five of their last six matches against Manchester City in all competitions, including the last three at the Emirates Stadium.
Theo Walcott’s goal last week was Arsenal’s 10th league goal by an Englishman this season, equalling last season’s total. The last season in which at least 11 goals were scored by English players for Arsenal was 1997-1998 when they got 24.
Walcott has scored or assisted 15 league goals this season. Wayne Rooney is the only Englishman to have contributed more.
Robin van Persie has gone three league games without a goal for the first time this season. Manchester City are one of only three teams that he has not scored against this season in the league, along with Fulham and Wolves. If he does score he will become only the fourth player to score against 17 different teams in a Premier League season (after Andrew Cole 1993-94, Alan Shearer 1994-95 and Wright 1996-97).
City have failed to win any of the four games in which Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko have started together this season.
Roberto Mancini’s side have scored 31 of their last 36 league goals at home.
