Table toppers Manchester City accept Arsenal in match week 16 of the Premier League once the teams clash on Sunday, December 18, 2011.
Man City suffered their first loss in the league season once they transpired 2-1 away at Chelsea, in match week 15. Lampard became an instantaneous hero for the house side when he came off the bench to score the match winner seven minutes before time. The sides were locked at 1-1 after Balotelli's early lead for City was neutralised shortly ahead of the interval on the rear of Raul Meireles'strike. City began explosively with waves of attack in the very first half hour to exploit Chelsea's porous defence. It culminated in Balotelli's goal, when Aguero cut in from the right to relay the ball past Terry to Aguero who in turn passed it to Balotelli to accomplish the rest. At the conclusion of the afternoon, City would have rued their many missed scoring opportunities in the very first half when the house side's defence was all at sea, attempting to cope with the marauding City attack. Aaron E.

In match week 15, Arsenal registered a 1-0 victory over Everton, in a fit hosted by Gunners at the Emirates. Robin Van Persie - who else - scored the only goal of the overall game to offer Arsenal something to celebrate their 125th anniversary by. Van Persie's spectacular volley on 71 minutes brought relief to home fans who were aggravated by the house side's many missed chances.
Face to face, in the last 10 years, Man City and Arsenal have met in 20 league games, with Arsenal winning on 14 occasions and City on 3, with the residual games ending in stalemates. The last time these teams met was in January 2011; that match played at the Emirates ended in a goalless stalemate.
Man City have won 8, and drawn and lost 1 each of their last 10 league matches, while Arsenal have identically won 8 and drawn and lost 1 each of their last 10 games. 
Currently at the top of the table, City have hosted 7 home games, this season, winning all 7; the Gunners who are 5th added to the league table experienced 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses, within their 7 away games.
With Chelsea causing City's title bid a gentle jolt in match week 15, the Manchester squad could have a point or even more to prove from the Gunners whose ramshackle defence could possibly be put to its stiffest test yet. Aaron E. Laurent
