Arsenal are in Premier League action tonight (Wednesday) as they take on reigning Champions Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
The game will be Mikel Arteta’s first return back to the club where he learnt his coaching trade as assistant manager to Pep Guardiola before leaving to take the job at the Emirates Stadium earlier this season.
And the former midfielder will be looking to get one over on his former boss by picking up three points that will move the Gunners to within five points of Chelsea in fourth place.
Arsenal are currently in ninth place in the table as the race for Champions League football next season hots up, and they could finish the day as high as sixth place.

In order to get one over on Man City, Arsenal are likely to turn to talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with the club captain also looking to close the gap on Jamie Vardy in the race for the golden boot.
The striker has scored 17 Premier League goals so far this season and although he failed to get on the scoresheet in the 1-0 win over West Ham in their last outing, the forward has scored three in his last three league games.
But, if pictures from training are anything to go by then Aubameyang has also been putting his skills at the other end of the pitch to the test.

In training pictures, the striker can be seen manning the goal and diving for the ball in an attempt to keep it out of the net.
The striker is then pictured celebrating like he’s scored a goal.
Should Bernd Leno and Emiliano Martinez somehow be unavailable for selection, the striker may have just proved that he could step up if need be, although Arteta would prefer Aubameyang to be scoring goals at the other end of the pitch rather than keeping them out of his own net.
