Arsene Wenger believes that the trip to Manchester City is an opportunity for his Arsenal team to show they can compete with the league leaders.
The Gunners have lost just once in their last twelve games, but haven’t really been tested since the trip to Chelsea in September.
City, meanwhile, remain unbeaten in the league this season, and look like the favourites to take the title already.
However, Wenger wants his team to show the quality he believes they have at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
“We have an opportunity to show we can do well against a big team away from home,” said the Frenchman.
“It is one we want to take and I’m sure everyone in our camp will be focused on that.
“They are good, I don’t want to take anything away from Manchester City at the moment, they are doing extremely well, they are top of the league and top of the European group stage.
“As well it is a good opportunity for us to show we can compete with them and that is what we want to show.”
Fingers crossed. Everything crossed, in fact.
