Man City vs Arsenal Live This match was originally scheduled to take place on March 11 but the global coronavirus pandemic put paid to that.
Now, three months later, the two are finally set to meet at the Etihad.
No Mesut Ozil in the Arsenal squad, but he isn’t injured. Mikel Arteta has said that he will address the player’s absence in his post-match press conference, which doesn’t sound that great for the player.
Ozil is undoubtedly one of Arsenal’s most talented players, but it could suit their team more to be without him.
It is a pretty big call from Arteta on his return to a ground that has seen plenty of them under Guardiola.
Should City lose to Arsenal, Liverpool will be able to clinch the top-flight title with victory over Merseyside rivals Everton on Sunday.
And his sublime 35th-minute strike was nominated for the 2019 FIFA Puskas Award, which was eventually won by Daniel Zsori.
Speaking on Wednesday’s Sports Breakfast show, Townsend told talkSPORT: “Listen, I’m not deluded. I know I can never recreate that again.
“I could never strike a ball that cleanly.
“So to do it on the big stage against the champions at the time in their own back yard… it was perfect. I know I can’t replicate that again, unfortunately.
“I was just in shock. I was in complete shock. I don’t think I’ve ever scored a volley in my career.
“So to do it from that far out in such an important game, you can see on my face as I run away I’m in complete shock.”
