If ever Arsenal needed a win, it’s now. Out of the Top Four and looking shell-shocked after losing to West Bromwich Albion, the climb-back must start today. Alas, it’s against an improving Manchester City (kick-off 4.00pm).

There are doubts over whether Gunners star Alexis Sánchez will be fit, so goals will have to come from the likes of Olivier Giroud. But are Arsenal up for the fight?

Could this be the first time since the 1996/97 season that they don’t make the Top Four?
