After consecutive losses to Newcastle and Wolves, a massive week lies ahead for Manchester City. First up is a trip to Germany to face RB Leipzig in the Champions League. That’s followed by a trip to the Emirates Stadium to battle Arsenal. City will be determined to return to their best this week.
The UEFA Champions League Group G clash with RB Leipzig allows City to take control of their group. A win would give the European champions the initiative in the group. It could also provide a platform to build into next weekend’s clash with Arsenal.
The German side will be no pushovers as they’ve started the Bundesliga season in fantastic form. They currently sit 5th in the table with 4 wins from their opening 6 games. They also won their opening Champions League group game against Young Boys to set themselves up for the clash with City. A stern test awaits Pep Guardiola’s side at the Red Bull Arena.
Following on from the trip to Germany the champions will be in Premier League action against Arsenal. The game will see a renewal of last season’s title rivals, with Arsenal looking to lay a marker this season that they have caught up to Pep Guardiola’s side. A tantalizing contest awaits next weekend, one that will see City face off against what is likely a title rival again this season.
After consecutive losses for the first time in a long time, this week may provide Manchester City with the perfect challenge to find their best form. The treble winners have looked off their best in the past two games, with injuries and a busy schedule appearing to catch up to Pep Guardiola’s side.
A massive week lies ahead for the European champions.
