Footymad preview History of the Manchester City v Arsenal fixture

Manchester City prepare to entertain Arsenal at City of Manchester Stadium on Sunday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 37 of the 89 previous games, with the Sky Blues winning just 31.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at City of Manchester Stadium was just last season, in October 2010, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-3 winners in a Premier League match.
