Arsenal head to Manchester this weekend to take on the blue side of the city. Only three places currently separate the teams in the table.

The Gunners have won one of their last four Premier League away matches and Arsene Wenger will be looking to make up some lost points.

Pellegrini’s team have either won or drawn their last fourteen matches in all competitions with Yaya Touré scoring six times over that period. But with the midfielder away at the African Cup of Nations will another goalscorer step up to the mark come Sunday?
